First day of LIVE at CHA!

If you didn't have the chance to take part in today's webcast from CHA, I will be the first to rub it in....


In all seriousness, the Crops of Luv fundraiser through this webcast has far exceeded my expectations.  The make & takes are great, and we have the chance to hear from various manufacturers and designers.

There is so much that I could talk about....but thankfully all of the links to the amazing people and products we saw today can be found on the Scrapbook Royalty facebook page.

Who's getting excited about Live at CHA?!

Who is?  I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Being in Chicago, I often feel like I miss out on a lot of the cool events that Scrapbook Royalty affiliates host or take part in.  So the chance to take part in some on-line make and takes during CHA is super exciting! 

It's not too late to register!  CHA is next weekend, so don't delay!

Come and join me in the fun!

And check out the video by Elena that describes all the goodies in the swag bag you'll receive to take part in the weekend webcast.

Live at CHA with Charity Wings


Why Should You Sign Up for Live at CHA?

Laura Bray has graciously answered this question for you!!! 

In Laura’s own words:

“I'm a CHA member, so I'm going to the show, but I'm almost jealous of the people who are doing the Live at CHA Event!  The lines of make & takes at the show can get long and there are so many booths that you can get overwhelmed and miss out on seeing some great new products.  The CHA Live folks aren't going to have these issues (not to mention the costs of parking, and staying in a hotel and the bad food options!).  If you have ever wanted to attend CHA this is an amazing opportunity!”

DMC-BlinkieThat’s not all!  Can you believe it that the one and only  Donna Downey will be demoing for Faber-Castell during the event.  I can’t wait to see that one.  I for one, watch Donna’s Inspiration Wednesday posts on her blog every week!  I wonder what she’s got going this week?

There’s even more to come so stay tyned to this spot!!!

Do You Know Suzi Blu?

Well neither do I but I’m dying to meet her!!!

googy flier

I have several of Suzi’s Unity stamps and taking one of her classes is on my to do list for this year but I’m thinking that meeting here in person is going to have to wait until another time.

Unless, like me, you are registered for Charity Wings Live at CHA event.  Suzi will be at CHA with our very own Elena interviewing some of our industries finest and smartest and playing along with the make and takes.  And you get to play right along with them!!!

So, if you haven’t registered yet, go to the Live at CHA page on the Charity Wings website to register.  You will receive a swag bag containing things that you will need for the make and takes (worth over $50)!!!

Support Crops of Luv through LIVE at CHA!!!!

Crops of Luv is a great agency that started a few years ago to make memory books for termilly ill children.  They organize supply drives and large gatherings of volunteers to create each of the scrapbooks.

The result?
An incredible gift for the families of these brave little souls.

Many of us, like me, will be unable to attend CHA because we are out-of-state, but you can still take part from the comfort of your own home!  But we can all help support the work of Crops of Luv anyway!!!


Get your ticket for an exclusive ALL ACCESS 3-DAY PASS to Live Video Streaming direct from the tradeshow floor, hosted by the Charity Wings Founder, Elena Lai Etcheverry and special guests.  Event fundraising will benefit the Crops of Luv charity.

Live at CHA Update

I’ll tell ya’ what!  Elena continues to amaze me with updates about our Live at CHA event!  I mentioned in the last CHA blog post about our wonderful swag bags but now Elena tells me that we are getting a free Make-N-Take from the people at Flower Soft.


Yes, I said Flower Soft.  They are the people that bring you pretty little sprinkles to add to your flowers to give them beautiful, soft dimension.  They will be giving a pot of this magic along with a tube of glue by Duncan and they will be hosting a live demonstration from the showroom floor on how to use the items they are adding to the swag bag!

I hear the Make-N-Take thing is going to be awesome.   It will be streamed live from the showroom floor.  You can work on your own project from home while you chat with everyone else from their homes.   Then, if you want to show off your project, just raise your hand and they’ll turn the cameras on you.  (Hopefully I will have figured out how to use my webcam by then. *giggle*)

You will be able to chat with industry leaders and designers that are attending CHA!  There will be giveaways from manufacturers if you are in the chat room! 

So, how about you?  I’ve purchased my ticket and I’m clearing my schedule from January 29-30th that I can be around for as many live sessions as possible!  Come join me!!!
