So, when last I left you I was about to teach my class for John Bead Co. Students were going to make a simple but fun necklace using components from the TROPICAL PUNCH LUCITE & bead COLLECTION..... and students did a wonderful job.
and I was so so so lucky to have the help of my good friend Carmi Cimicata
Next night Carmi taught a class and I, sort of, assisted, but truthfully I think I was just there to make funny jokes!!
Here's a scattered variety of things you saw as you walked the show floor
Below...from the 'Simple Stories' Booth
a quick dash past Dina Wakley doin' her magic in the Ranger Booth
Two of my loveliest foreign friends that I have to wait once a year to see
RACHEL (l) Representing the UK and LYNN representing So. Africa
Then there's that kookie redhead, Dyan Reaveley from the UK who was also in the Ranger booth along with Patti. Only Patti looks normal in this silly selfie !!
I got a quick shot of the adorable Jen Cushman demoing at the Ice Resin Booth,...they were mobbed with people.
Watching Finnibair do her thing is always the most mesmerizing demo of all
and, do you want to know what one of THE HOTTEST trends was at CHA????
Here is one that was invented for Prima Marketing
by Courtney Green
and here are some other shots to pique your interest....
and, what would CHA be without our own COLOR BURST ambassador
