You have the right to remain unconscious....





...and I plan on doing so very soon. I am EXHAUSTED!! Between set up, standing up on the show floor 8 hours a day and then the dinners and drinks at night, I could sleep for days. My back hurts, my eyes hurt, my head hurts....and it was all well worth it :) The new releases at Dream Street were accepted lovingly into the, albeit enormous, CHA-S show. It was great to see the faces of those tried and true customers who come back year after year and gush over the designs. I think my favorite thing to hear is that they love how diverse each of our collections are. Kinda like one stop shopping. It's my favorite thing about Dream Street...I get to design papers I would love to use and then see others scrap with them as well. Dream come true!

As usual, I got to walk the floor some and I absolutely fell in love with some other great releases. Here's a few off the top of my head: Basic Grey Urban Prairie, Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper Prudence and Mia, Hambly Birdcage, Fancy Pants Daily Grind, Pink Paislee Vintage Moon.....

I got to lunch with Cindee and Jamie from Label Tulip at one of the most gorgeous restaurants I've seen in Chicago yet. The food and company were both delish! I got to see a sneak peek of the upcoming kits......OH MY HEAVENS......LOVE. Nuttin' but LOVE. Which reminds me, I never posted my Label Tulip layouts.....so there they are above ;)

I'm going to read through all the comments from the giveaway post. Seriously people, you made me feel totally humbled by all your responses! If even one or two of you actually come back and visit every once in a while and enjoy my blabbering, that would be awesome :) I know there are a bunch of blogs that I visit religiously....and those people actually feel like friends to me. Even though I've never met some of them. I hope I can do the same for some one out there as well. It really helps sometimes to get lost in the lives in other people from time to time.

Be back soon with the winners!!

Holy COW! Gorgeous stuff there!
Hope you recover from CHA soon.:)

That painting reminds me of stuff I have seen in this etsy shop (I am totally not affiliated in any way) just thought it looked similar.
