CHA - the wholesale show

One of the first booths we headed to was the vintage decorated Jenni Bowlin booth - and we were not let down. The booth looked wonderful!
Wait until you see some of the new products they had - we will let you know when they are in stock!
One of the best booths was the & gypsies booth - they always but together something great.
Here some new notebooks that they are now offering - just one of the new products we ordered from them.
Here is a quick list of some of the other goodies we found and ordered for the shop:

Exotic handmade papers

Ranger (of course!) - Tim Holtz's new Inks as well as his new embossing folders, new cutting dies and new Ideology line.

Some goodies from Webster's Pages

Stampers Anonymous - new images from Penny Black and more

We will keep you posted as all the new stuff arrives!

More from the CHA Craft Supershow

After a lot of hard work, the Supershow booth looks great! Here are a few photos before the doors opened the first day:
Jeanne was busy helping customers all day - she really has a way with them:
The Queen was showcasing her embossing skills to people as they walked through:
Just about everyone who stopped by walked away with a little piece of art:

This morning we are changing hats and heading to the wholesale show to find treasures and the latest & greatest paper crafting supplies.
Working closely with Rob and Judi from Judikins (with me in the above photo) is as always, a wonderful treat - also it is fun to catch up with the sweet sisters Vicky and Sarah of Stamp Addict who travel all the way from the UK to help out.

Meeting Crafting Royalty

Having a good time in rainy California. We spent last night setting up the Queen's Ink / Judikins booth for the retail Craft Supershow and today the doors opened at noon to a line of eager customers.

Among the customers, the Queen meet with some other Crafting Royalty...

Carol Duvall was signing autographs in our booth:

Jenny Doh stopped by and it was a treat to meet her in person (even a passerby was so smitten with the pair of us that he had to jump in the photo):

Bline Design's own Bev Seymour was there as well:

And of course, the Queen did have some time to play:

Stay tuned for tomorrow for a look at the booth.

Jenni Bowlin

Jenni & Patti

Jenni Bowlin came to teach a couple classes in December, the turn out was great, both classes ended up selling out. The projects were amazing and Jenni is a great teacher. Everyone had a great time!
