However, I will say that Anaheim is right up there with Memphis on the friendliness of the people. The were crazy Texas friendly and I loved it.
OMG - my posts are backwards - Look BELOW the monkey post for my first Monday pics!!
But on with the show. Here is some more from Monday. I will photoshop Tuesday's goodies down at Gate 2 shortly, so talk amongst yourselves until then.
Okay - Frank - check this out. Maui Wowie shrimp salad. Feel free to post in OmniNet!!
Here's a man who was really feeling his oats at CHA. I tried to find some of these for myself, as they now seem very much a necessity, but alas, no findy.
I toyed with the idea of making you think I invented these.. but Martha did. Have you ever seen cuter pipe cleaner animals? I must have these!!
These are also Martha.
This is the Glue Glider. It's an adhesive runner, but the adhesive is divided into 1/16" segments for very precise application. Me likey.
Options was one of my favorite booths. They have drop dead gorgeous storage and totes. My friend and generous hostess here, Lisa, won a huge sassy brown suede bag from them. *Sigh*
Here is my painting from my watercolor/pastel class. It was so fun. I did an oil painting class yesterday using the Bob Ross Method that I will show the results of in the next class.
A good teacher makes it all easy!!
The booths from China had hilarious names. I thought immediately of Sue Farrant and Lisa Page when I saw this one - I can just hear them using this in a sentence. If that woman doesn't stop stamping black into my yellow ink pad I'm going to Magi-Wap her into next week!
The all also had the strange punctuation with the period + comma. So others were like "John's Super Good Craft Products for Joy., Inc., Ltd., LLC., Etc.,
This company produces all their paper lines with one note shaped piece in each pack.
And these STUNNING vintage chipboard buttons, blackberry not included.
This flower was made from their paper crepe ribbons.
Aah - the holy Grail - Basic Grey's Marrakech line. You would get misty if you saw it IRL.
LOVE this idea!! Put your hands together!!
I know this looks weird, but it's made with an awesome product - GLASS BEAD GEL!! WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!! SO CLEAN AND EASY - NO MORE BEEDZ ON THE FLOOR!
These pillows were made with rub-ons from Hambly - an awesome booth with great transparencies.
Here is a bracelet from the Pentel make & take - just made with markers!
Here's the one I made.
The red is this COOL Chalk marker - very fun to use!!
OH - this must be what Maddie sees when she looks at a pom pom!!!
This skirt made out of thread (wear undies, ladies!!) was at the DMC booth. Stunning.
This cool punch has a magnetic base so you can move the punch around anywhere on your paper!
I just thought this muffin tin with pewter findings was beautiful.
Here's the glue gun with the wax for making wax seals. I just loved these seals. The go through the mail without breaking.
Felt stickers from Prima.
This was made with Fimo clay. It just glowed. The Fimo artist was one of the most talented people I saw. Great lady.
And finally, more Ranger eye candy.
I talked to Shelli for a bit - she and Sterling were warm and friendly as always, and that was the first time my sister got to meet her. Kristina Werner was there as well, and so it was fun to see the SU! gang.
I'm sad that my friend Lisa just got on her plane. We were both saying that we already felt like we knew each other when we met this trip. She is hilarious and just as sweet in person.
Head over to her blog - Flatfish Paper Arts - for more pictures and show info. She saw totally different things than I did.
Now it's time to move to my real gate and start photoshoppings, so TTFN.
