Mary Beth's Monday Musings from StencilGirl

Hello and welcome to the first of my "Musings".
I am writing to you from CHA, the Mega Show, in Anaheim, CA.  In case you are wondering, this is the convention of the Craft and Hobby Association.  I have been here for two days and am heading home tomorrow.  So, in no particular order, the MUSINGS.........
Cake.  Need I say more? This is the most enormous piece of cake I have ever seen.  The Stevia package is for size reference, no to mention, irony. Isn't this cake amazing? Delicious too, and also quite expensive, $13 for cake seems a tad crazy but we shared it among three people.

Easter Island - knitted! Part of a 7 Wonders of the World display, this one was my favorite and was completely adorable. But who thinks of this, that's what I want to know?
And last, but certainly not least - My book signing. Certainly one of the most thrilling events of my arts and craft career, kind of a pinch me moment for sure.
CHA, in the words of Seth Apter, is "exhilarating and exhausting." And I agree. my brain will be buzzing for days and weeks with all the visual stimulation I got from the show. And yeah, I am bone tired........but in a good way.
