As many of you know, we had the opportunity to travel to
a few weeks ago to attend the Craft & Hobby Association Convention &
Trade Show . . . better known as CHA.
What an amazing adventure! From
the time we walked into the airport here in Phoenix to board our plane until
the time we walked out 5 days later to catch our ride home, it was constant go,
go, go! Here are just a few highlights .

On a personal note, I’d like to extend a very special “thank you” to Dana Edwards and Sherry Bamsey for embarking on this adventure with me. Without either of these very special women, CHA would most likely have been like so many other conventions I’ve attended in the past. While it wasn’t quite a “Thelma & Louise” adventure, it was definitely exciting and I, for one, am already looking forward to a return visit next year!
