Here's a few more snapshots of CHA.
This is at the GCD booth. We made cute little necklaces using Melody Ross's new line of lovelies. I pretty much figure than any craft that involves hammering or intense metal of any kind is totally worth the time it takes. Hey, if you don't burn your fingers in the process, it's just not the kind of memory worth sticking around.
Can I just say that my mom did a way better job than me? I hate make-n-takes. HATE them. I get all nervous and impatient and totally convinced that I'm going to screw it up. And I did. Hence, no photo of my necklace. But my mom's totally turned out great - her make-n-takes always do.
And below is a shot of the new vintage jewelry line by Jill Schwartz for Making Memories. Looks sorta Anthropology-ish, doesn't it? Yeah, that's cuz Jill is the best designer ever. Can't even begin to tell you how much I love it. LOVE IT. I did their make-n-take, and am proud to say that it actually did turn out very well. Can't wait to see where this line is picked up.
Okay, now you're probably wondering who this guy is in the photo, huh?
Well, that's Dan Nelson, CEO of Making Memories. And boy, is he a cutie. Sweet, sparkle in his eye, loves his wife, and just plain adorable. Just look at all the half-crazed women buzzing around him! My mom certainly thought he was a doll. Mrs. Nelson, you are one lucky lady!!
Well that's all for now. More later.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
