Safe travels, can"t wait to see some CHA posts of the DT creations.

You don't pack a top hat, you wear it with style ;-)

Barbara Albrecht

I know I shouldn't...but...I have to...LOL!!! I'm pictureing you crafting by candlelight and cursing. Reminds me of Laura last CHA when she lost power for days.

That WAS some storm that went through. We went out on the porch and just stood there like a couple of ninnies watching the rain...and then the flood in the back yard. We needed it sooooo bad!!

Safe travels my friend!! Be sure to look up my DD, Kimber, at the Jillibean booth.

And as far as the top hat goes...just wear it!

By now, you are in the air and on your merry way. Yahoo!!!!!! Off to see the wizards in Chicago. It is finally here Jimbug!!!!! See..... you persevered even thru a power outage. So proud of you. Now it is fun, fun, fun!!!! Enjoy, and don't forget to smile. Take good care of Ms. Laura,(or will she be taking good care of you??). Which ever. Have fun.


You always brighten my day and today was no exception. I can just picture how you were working. I hope you can destress a bit and enjoy your first CHA. Looking forward to seeing what you created through this whole process. Thanks as always for sharing.

Queen Mary

AH, you WEAR the top hat!


hahaha!!! can just picture you crafting in the dark by candlelight!!!! have a great time in chicago taking in everything and getting toadally inspired!!!


It's a glorious insanity, isn't it? Can't wait to see what you have cooked up for's always amazing. Get some sleep on the plane. (Yeah, trying to sleep on Christmas Eve when you are 6 or 7...the excitement prevents slumber!) I know you will have fun and make a ton of friends! Enjoy!

Renee Zarate

Oh boy, what a fab time you are going to have. Eat some terrific Chicago deep dish pizza for me! Hey, here is an idea, a G45 Gentleman Jim hat box, altered to perfection! Enjoy! So looking forward to the upcoming posts!
