Tammy and Jen's CHA Adventure


Every morning Tammy and I have been enjoying breakfast outside on the balcony of our hotel. I just can't get over how nice the weather is. This day it's 26C and feels so nice.

The Conference Center where CHA is held is huge and I love how the palm trees are all perfectly aligned.

We had never been to CHA before so when we first walked in it was very overwhelming and the question was where do we start? So Tammy went one way I went another. This is total brain overload for the crafter, the displays are phenomenal, loaded with inspiration.

Can you guess who's booth this is?

We saw lots of glitter art and mixed media.

I love the chicken wire on this.

Make and takes

One of the booths was so creative(DCWV). I want to make one of these for in my house. It was so cool! Its made out of paper with bird cages tucked in and hanging from everywhere.

Same booth, this turtle and fish were made completely out of paper as well as the peacock below.

These dress forms were a designer challenge.

I loved this full size dress made with paper flowers and jewels.

I'd say I only got through half the showroom floor.

The Happiest Place On Earth

Ok, you can't come all the way to California, be right across the street from Disneyland and not go. So this was our first order of business.

Main Street Disney

One of the rides

Indiana Jones

These really hurt, I didn't go fast enough ;)
The tea cup ride, I did get Tammy to go on it if I promised not to spin it

And of course we had to watch the parade, you can't help but smile while watching.

Space Mountain was awesome. The very long (I'm sure it was an hour) line was totally worth it!

And finally the fireworks show at the end of the day.

Tammy and Jen's CHA Adventure

Landing In L.A.

What a beautiful sight to see as we flew over California and saw the snow disappear. I'm not a big fan of winter and this looks like heaven to me.

Ahhhh...warm summer air (at least it feels like summer to us). This totally makes up for the cold -40C weather we had earlier. After checking into our hotel we headed to the Convention Center to register and get our passes.

Don't you just love palm trees :) Next on our to do list was to check out the Anaheim Garden Walk for a little shopping and dining at the 50's inspired Johnny Rockets, yumm!
