I’m baaaaaaack! *grin* I had such an incredible time at CHA Winter 2009! I got to meet so many talented ladies at the show! And not only are they talented… they are sweet as cupcakes too! Last year at Summer CHA I decided to do a little “Cupcakes @ CHA” collage and I wanted to continue that tradition again this year! I found cupcake pincushions, cupcake bling, cupcake paper, cupcake stamps, cupcake brads, a cupcake luggage tag…. cupcakes are IN! The Doodlebug booth was by far the most adorable booth at the show! It was designed like a little sweet shoppe complete with a huge three-tiered treat stand, giant size ice cream cones, and a shoppe window with cupcakes growing out of the window box (that’s me in the window of the Doodlebug booth on the bottom right)! I have a funny story to share about the picture in the middle of my collage. I was putting this together last night and I called Jon over to the computer to check out all the cupcakes I found at CHA. And here’s what he said… “Who’s that lady in the middle?” Ummmm… hellooooo… that’s me! We laughed and laughed, but I should give him a break since I did just cut off six inches of hair and dye it a lighter shade before I left. Just wanted to point out that that is me in the pictures in case anyone else is confused! lol. I have one more fun product to show you today… it’s called Smooch and it’s new from Clearsnap! What a cute name for such a cute product! It comes in packaging that resembles nail polish. The super fine foam tip allows you great control when applying and the pearlized finish leaves your images looking yummy. I can’t wait to show you some pictures of Smooch in action when it arrives! The Taylored Expressions shopping crew ordered lots and lots of new products at CHA that we’ll be debuting over the next several weeks so stay tuned to the blog and the TE Store!
