370 My CHA experience, My newest Design Team, My Giveaway

Get ready.... though I usually try to keep my posts brief, those that know me from private blogs, forums or emails, know that sometimes I can get a little wordy..... hope you can hang in here and meet some of the people I met at CHA

I got to attend my first CHA (well the Supershow part of it anyway) and I am so glad I took the time to go. My goal in attending this event was to meet internet friends, fellow artists and product companies, to include ProvoCraft.  Mission accomplished! 

I met a lot of talent, a lot of kindness, and a lot of hugs and smiles.  Wandering around CHA there are so many people to be seen... friendly, happy people reveling in their element. Projects were being made every where you looked, as well as lasting friendships, I'm sure.

Some of the people I met... (I didn't take a camera, so I've snatched various pics from blogs and facebook)


Shantaie Fowler -  Shantaie and I have been on a couple of design teams together and will be again in the future - you can count on it.  I love her unique style and her love of creating. She has quickly become a good friend and we shared a room at the hotel, spending the weekend together, oohing and aahing at all the great things CHA had to bring.  It was easy hanging out with Shantaie.  It just felt right and we enjoyed the time together (speaking for myself here).

Michele Kovack-  Though I've always watched Michele's blog, we didn't really get to know each other until the forming of the Cricut Circle Design team back in May. Over the last week I have come to find out just how special she is and how  fortunate I am to have had my creative life cross paths with hers. I already knew this lady was special, but it was confirmed with my meeting her in person at CHA

Diane Campbell Payne aka Capadia designs (known to some as Okie's evil twin)  Diane and I were on a design team together not long ago and I've always been a watcher of her blog, as she has great projects and great Cricut Design Studio information.  Diane is just as sweet in person as she is online.  I wish we could have had more time to visit.

Karen Maldonado and Eva Dobilas  - I put them together because that's just how I always think of them. :)  - Karen and Eva - Eva and Karen. We were almost all on a team together, but it didn't work out.... definitely the team's loss!  I had the pleasure of chatting with them a couple of times and shared a couple of lunch breaks with them.  Amazing women.  Seriously.  I found that I really wanted to hear what they had to say, no matter what the subject of the conversation.  They are genuine, happy, and full of great humor.

Maggie Lamarre  - I've had a lot of contact with Maggie over the past year through email and phone calls.  Maggie in person is just like Maggie online .  It was like I had met her before.  No surprises at all.  I'm glad I  finally got to meet her in person.

Tammy Skinner , Creative Critter - Tammy and I share a couple of design teams and it was nice to meet her in person.  We never really got a chance to chat though - she's one busy lady!

Joy and Melanie - Another pair that I just think of together because of their shared blog. If you are a Cricut fan, then you know Joy and Melanie from Everyday Cricut .  Again, I only got to briefly meet these ladies, but it didn't take long to see that being around them for any length of time means having fun. 

Robyn, My Pink Stamper -  I had the opportunity to introduce myself and chat very briefly with Robyn when I was in her 'booth' looking at her new line of  stamps.  She's very pleasant and what I would call a 'regular' person, despite the constant attention she receives.  I think Robyn may have been one of  the most recognizable people at the CHA Supershow, besides perhaps the Cricut him(her)self. ;0)

Jinger Adams..... If you don't know who Jinger Adams is, she's ProvoCraft's spokesperson. Lately she was on HSN with Martha Stewart launching the Martha Stewart Cake machine.  Soon she'll be there again launching the new Imagine.  While I didn't walk up and introduce myself, as she was always surrounded by fans, Jinger was speaking and mingling at the Cricut Circle meeting.   This young lady is downright cute!  Pure cuteness!  Her personality and her appearance just make you smile right along with her.  How fortunate for Provo Craft to have her.

Sankari ....... Oh my.... can you say talented and beautiful in one word?  Just say Sankari.  I had the pleasure of meeting Sankari, though very briefly, when she joined us at our lunch table to visit with Eva. This young lady is just beautiful.  You can see in her eyes that she's beautiful inside and out.  I certainly never expected to meet her.  I never miss her blog, no matter how busy I may be.  Her work is amazing!

Donna Mundinger ..........  Donna was sitting near me at the Cricut Circle meeting on Friday am.  I only talked to her very briefly, as she thought I looked familiar. It dawned on me later, that it was I that recognized who she was since I read her blog all the time.  She does great work.  Be sure to check her blog out. 

Cristal (aka Pinky)... No. Sadly, I didn't get to meet Pinky... we tried, but it didn't work out and she had to leave Friday morning.  I did get to talk to her on the phone and I know that not meeting her is my loss.  We'll catch up with each other some time soon.  Maybe Winter CHA.

Do me a favor... click on their names and stop by all these ladies blogs, check out their fabulous work remembering that not only are they wonderful artists, they are wonderful women.  Tell them Cindy sent you and she's over here talking about them!

More that I met..........


Provo Craft people ....  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Provo Craft family during the Cricut Circle meeting, as well as around the Provo Craft display at CHA Supershow.  They are all very kind and pleasant and are quite passionate about Provo Craft products and Provo Craft customers. I can't remember all their names, but I do want to say they were all very nice to talk to and to watch demonstrating products.  I want to mention two of them specifically though ..... two that I will be involved with more closely, two that Cricut Circle members will recognize the names.  Mike and Shannon.

Mike .... Mike works for ProvoCraft, but lately I think he's working for the Circlets, as they keep him hopping!  This is one of the most charming, funny, passionate men you will ever meet!  Really.  I've nicknamed him Provo Charming.  You really just want to take him home with you.

Shannon...  Cricut Circle Leader ...  Shannon rocks. Upon meeting Shannon, you instantly know you are going to like her.  She's full of energy and enthusiasm toward the Circle team and that really feels good.  I know I'm going to enjoy working with her and the rest of the Provo Craft team.
 
I've always been a really big ProvoCraft product fan... Cuttlebug and Cricut machines and supplies, etc.... a papercrafter's dream store.  Now, after meeting these folks and hearing what they have to say, I am no longer a ProvoCraft product fan -  I am a ProvoCraft Company fan!  They are passionate about what they do and it shows in their product line and in their generosity. I'm so glad I went to this show and heard what they had to say and saw what they had to offer. They are people just like you and  I, although a bit younger than I am, but people just the same, with a love of crafting.

So if you have managed to read all this, surely you've figured out that I'm on the Cricut Circle Design Team and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.  I'm honored to be a part of  Provo Craft, however small a part it may be!  Watch for me in the upcoming issues of the Circle Magazine (available to Circle members only).



In light of my excitement about CHA and my being on the Design Team, I'm going to give away this fantastic Country Life Cartridge to a commenter on this post.  You don't have to do anything other than comment.  Would I like you to follow my blog?  You bet, but you don't have to.  Would I like you to spread the word? Yup, but you don't have to.

















Comments can be left until midnight EST, 8/14.  I'll draw a winner on 8/15.  Be sure to stop back and see if you won!!!

(If I don't hear back in 7 days from winners on my giveways, I'll put the prize back into my stash and give it away again another time)
