Yes,  I was actually at CHA and I have the pictures to prove it …. well sort of.  No, not pictures of me teaching a workshop or any of the mini classes.  Not pictures of my Global Gallery Display or my Designer Showcase.  Not a single picture of my work on display in the booths of various manufactures.  I have pictures of me going out to eat.  Yes, that sounds right.  It has been  a little over 2 weeks since returning from California and things are finally getting back to normal.  I have caught up on my sleep.  Managed to unpack everything and put it all away.  Now I am back to grinding away at getting projects packed up, directions written and ready to go to various publications.  I think it was a successful show in various ways.

The first picture is Carla Schauer – Dessigner, Abby Foster Editor of Crafts N Things.

Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art.

She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail.
