cha-summer 2012 show highlights…

hi bloggers… well another cha show has come and gone.  although the foot traffic at the show was a bit quiet, it was still great to see many familiar faces and share in the excitement of some great new products making there way into stores for the holiday season.  of course there is so much hard work from everyone that goes into a trade show like this, lots of planning, prep, and i have to say it’s very rewarding to see it all come together.  just a huge thanks to mario, paula, and debbie (“team tim”) for sharing their talents – the booths never looked better, simply over the top amazing!  my thanks to the companies i design for (ranger, idea-ology, sizzix, stampers anonymous, coredinations, and tonic) for doing their part to represent the products and allow me to express my creative vision the way i want to share it.  thanks to the talented designers for making projects and truly inspiring me with their ability to create incredible projects: stephanie ackerman, tammy tutterow, shelly hickox, kaz halljoy kennedy , debi adams, and kathy files (be sure to check out their blogs and the photos below).  i also want to sincerely thank the retailers and most importantly all of you for allowing this journey to even be possible.  not a day goes by where i don’t realize and appreciate how truly lucky i am to be able to live my creative dream and truly “enjoy the journey”…t!m

here are some of my personal highlights from the show:
