CHA~CHA~ CHING!!

 What a fantastic adventure it was ~ 4 gals, a road trip to the sunny clime of California, 3 full days of artsy eye candy, and meeting up with old friends.  It just doesn't get much better than that!  Rather than bore you with a lot of yakking, I'm sending in the pix to do the blogging.  I'll catch up with you at the end...
Cali bound

yummies and fun for the trip

serious minded artists...ready with totes...


Juno makes a pit stop in Gila Bend

can you spell STEAMERS????
amazing things await...
and the doors open!!











































I missed you, sweet blog friends, and I hope you enjoyed this snaps.  This was the tip of the iceberg...it was soooo cool to be "in on" the new stuff before it hits the stores.  Yes, I did place a few orders and I'm hopping up and down just waiting for it to arrive!

This experience was a blessing for which I am truly grateful.  I wonder if I have enough time to save up for Summer CHA in July????

Have a beautiful week and I hope this has spoken to your muse!
xoxo
Karen
