Exciting News and CHA Photos!

I am thrilled to announce that I will be continuing to design for Purple Onion Designs!!! Thank you to Michele for the invite to stay!!!

Here is the 2014 team:

I am also back from a trip to Anaheim and the CHA. Wow, what an overwhelming experience but I was happy to meet some crafty friends up close and personal.

Here I am, pre-convention, ready to meet some people and to learn!!! 
I was a little nervous!

First off, I headed off to meet the sweet and lovely, Susan McShirley of SRM Stickers. I love being on her design team and was happy to meet this lady in person! She introduced me to everyone and made me feel special. She is genuine and caring.

Then I met Mrs. Sweet (Sweet Stamp Shop) herself! Wow, what a firecracker! Nicole Rixon is one infectious person...positive, upbeat and full of life! I was in awe! I met her fabulous designer, Alyssa and of course, the lovely Dannielle who manages my FUSION team!!!! I was thrilled to hug that girl!! Hooray!!!

Photo: Met a good friend of Amy Tsuruta. :)
I met Ivy at the Lawn Fawn Booth! She was a doll and helped me with my make and take card!!! We had a mutual friend, Amy T....it was cool to chat!

Photo: With the lovely "Some Odd Girls"!
I was so happy to meet Suzanne Bier (a designer for Whimsy & Stars Studio with me) and the lovely Some Odd Girl ladies...what a nice group!!! Their stamps are SO cute!

Photo: With Tenia Renee Nelson. :)
Tenia and I hooked up briefly at the Convention, she was lovely and introduced me to some other crafters. It was nice to meet her!

And finally I met Leah L'Orange. This gal lives in the US but is originally a Canadian like me. We have chatted online before but I could really see what a gem she is. Down to earth and real! Love this lady. She made me feel welcome. Thanks Leah!!
