I was waiting for all the pictures to come in before I blogged about my adventures at CHA Chicago and the last batch is here! Last week I flew out to hang out with my friends from Duncan and play with Liquid Fusion Glue with a bunch of crafters. It was super fun. Also in the booth was my sister Hope Perkins painting and glittering up a storm. Kathy Cano Murillo was there with her amazing new Crafty Chica line making earrings. Sonya Nimiri was to my right ironing on sparkles and Traci Bautista was to my left using her new product collage pauge! My apron was a big hit and all the ladies had made their own adorable versions! Here are a few pictures to sum up all the fun that was had!
Hope painted an amazing dress for the wall that pictured a deer with an ice cream sundae in his antlers!
After a long day of crafting it was time for sushi with the ladies. Going around the table counter clock wise we have Sonya, Kim, Hope, Traci, Jen, Cami (omg awesome resin jewelry), Claudine (check out her new Studio Line!) and Bernie. Maki sushi makes a mean bowl of Udon soup.
Another person who I was so excited to meet was Candie Cooper! Candie, Margot and I are all in Bead Bloggers together. I was surprised to run into my friend Leah Kramer from Craftster at the event and she stopped by our crafty happy hour!
I heart Cathi and Steve from Creative Juice they are always so much fun. It was nice to hang out with them in a situation where we were not having to film anything!
I almost forgot my home town Austin buddy Jenny Hart was going to be at CHA so it was good to see her for a little bit. We also met Ed from Stencil One one of the more Indie/arty booths at CHA. Thanks ladies of the Petaluma Craft Mafia for telling me about the booth!
