CHA SUMMER!

What can I say about this FAB event? It was a riot! A whirlwind of activites, crafty folks, cupcakes and make& takes! A picture is worth a thousand words so take a peek at my great adventures...






First stop, a video taping for Michael's website with the delightfully entertaining Jo Pearson. Here I am with Lisa Pavelka and Jo setting up and drinking coffee before the doors open, the crowds trample in and live taping begins.









The lull before the storm...
The crew getting the "studio" set up for Michael's tapings.












Lisa Lambright dreaming of her own TV show...





Making sure everything is ready for the camera...














Hooking my microphone up and trying not to giggle...that tickles!




Lights, camera, ACTION!











Is the camera working???!












More than loads of laughs with these two...






































That's a wrap!









Our lovely fans with questions, comments & many hugs. Love you guys, thanks for stopping by!









Next stop - teaching a couple cell phone charm Make & Takes for Michael's.

















































One of the highlights was meeting and chatting with Mary Engelbreit!



Such an inspirational icon in my life (also VERY cool she loved my book!).










One of my favorite things in life is to hear my mentors' stories...they all have such fascinating backgrounds and it's exciting to hear some of the secrets of what makes them tick...



























Thanks Mary, what a pleasure!











Next stop, a testimonial filming for Ott Lights (which I use every day in my studio and LOVE!).

















No time for rest...onto my book signing at the Crafty Cafe.











Sooooo fun chatting about my book, quilts, jewelry, everything bling!







Here are some of my crafty celeb pals...




Matt Fox & Shari Hiller













The famous AND infamous Margot Potter...

















Clay queen Lisa Pavelka and glam Jill McKay














The Chic Crafty Chica and rockin' daughter Maya










Mega talents Claudine Hellmuth & Candi Cooper












Never met a cupcake I didn't like...or two, or three or...

It is so fun to see a show that I attended through someone else's eyes. This was a great post! :)

Okay, I missed the cupcakes, I missed Matt Fox (who is single, by the way, or was last I heard), and I'm starting to think you had to have rollerskates on to get around that much!!! We didn't get a pic together which makes me sad, but it was GREAT to see you there!

HOW could you miss those cupcakes every morning???? Breakfast of champions I say...
I soooooooo wish we did a photo op, next time for sure.
I didn't know Matt was single, wish I'd stuck around longer to chat with him, he was a cutie patootie for sure!
Loved seeing you and catching up!
