why am I awake at 4AM?
I've been busy all week making lists, packing, buying new little things I'll need. I went to bed last night ready to rest up and charge the batteries for a very busy few days ahead. I'm going to CHA this morning and didn't have to get up until 6, a full 8 hours of rest was planned. So here I am thinking maybe I can sneak in another hour if I get back in bed quickly. No time for a nap today.
Just in case somebody out there (hi Mary) doesn't know what CHA is, it's the Craft Hobby Association trade show. I'm going with two hats this year. I'll be there representing Scrapbook News and Review with a press pass and I'm working a bit for Fiskars to help pay the hotel bill. Mostly, I'm hoping to learn new things, catch up with friends, see all the new releases, and just play for a few days amongst all things crafty. I've got my camera batteries charged, gel insoles for my shoes, a cute new bag and sweater, and adorable business cards. If you'll be at the show, stop by the Fiskars booth and say hi. I'll be working a make and take Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.
On a side note, today is my sweet hubby's birthday. Stop by his blog and wish him a happy birthday if you have a minute. He and Kyle are going down to look at the boat they are taking on their big 4 day fishing trip to Mexico this summer and are having a seafood lunch. We had cake last night for an early celebration.
Thanks for all the sweet notes about my MIL. It looks as though surgery is in her near future.
I'll be back home late monday night with stories and pictures. I'm even bringing two cameras just in case I need a back up.
