CHA 2009

I'm still here, and I promised to post photos from CHA. In addition to photos, I have a rare treat- a short tutorial video taken in the Copic booth of me coloring a stamp by Our Craft Lounge on Monday by the great folks over at the Pink Donut. Go click on the video on their page and leave a comment or click through to You Tube. Meanwhile, here is a good picture of half the Copic Papercrafting Design team. From left: Sharon Harnist, Debbie Olson, Me, Sherrie Siemens, and Trudee Sauer.

Here is a great photo of Trudee in the booth happily coloring. Sherrie, Sally Lynn, and Trudee all have done a fabulous job coloring and chatting in the booth this year. Life is hard when you have to color all day! You can see in the background the big, colorful signs in our booth. Behind Trudee, on the right is our new glitter display. On the left is our graphic designer, Courtney, coloring and drawing at our doodle table.


Last, here is a quick photo of Cambria Turnbow and the great wall of stamps at Our Craft Lounge. It was a cute booth and totally full of fun, neat stuff. I need to get some sleep, so enjoy the photos and I'll try to take some more before I finish. Have a great week!

Great video Marianne! You & your illustration came across very well on film!! Your crew looks like you all are having a great time (I know it's a lot of work too).

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

Congratulations on your Craft Lounge CHA presence! I'm sad I didn't get to go to CHA again. Summer '08 was my first time and I was in awe.

Great videos over at Pink Donut! I bet you are worn out from traveling so much! Don't worry about your blog readers, we'll always be here waiting for a new post - and until then, there are plenty of informative posts in the archives for us to read and brush up on. Best wishes to you and your family!
