Beading Excitement!1:19 PM
My favorite part of CHA is that I have a whole lot of time to be creative. Being the marketing manager of Soft Flex Company, I find less and less time to just sit and bead. There is always an ad due, an email newsletter to write, a technical seminar or staff training event to plan, a show to pack for, etc. At CHA, not only do I get 4 full days to sit and design, but I also get an opportunity to go out and enjoy Make-It-Take-Its from other companies. Learning new techniques that I can later incorporate into my design work. I really planned well for this CHA. I packed according to our new holiday themed Soft Flex Beading Wire Trios (Available from us on February 1st). I picked beads and findings that I knew would fit well for each upcoming holiday. I am very happy with my Easter - "Egg Hunt" Trio as well as my Valentine - "Be My Valentine" (pictured above) designs. It was so nice to just relax and do what I love to do most - BEAD! The holiday Trios were a big hit. They are just so darn CUTE! When I get a chance, I'll photograph and blog about some of the MITI's that I enjoyed most. For now, I'm going to relax and try to recharge my batteries for Tucson. I leave for Tucson on Monday! Is it really February already?
