CHA - Day 2

This is a covert post....you have to be a special Studio Calico detective to be able to decipher the subtle images that I have placed within this message. Instead of being way, way obvious and telling you the products that we are looking at, I decided to make you work for it a little. As we traveled from booth to booth today, I took pictures of April and Scarlet with some familiar faces. Some of them are our very own subscribers, some are famous designers, some are on the design teams of some of our favorite manufacturers. Take a look at the pictures and you should be able to tell where we were visiting and then maybe guess a few of the products that you may see in future kits. The boss ladies forbid me to give you too much information, so I have to be a little sneaky!

I found these little guys hanging out people watching. I wonder what manufacturer dreamed up these little monsters.

Here is April and Scarlet with our friend KC. You may have to do a little sleuthing to find out what manufacturer signs his paycheck.

Scarlet and April met a new friend today....she came to know about Studio Calico via Stephanie Howell's blog. They met her outside of a booth that you might be interested in.

We found these designers (Summer and Kimber) working at a booth at the show. They are both big fans of Studio Calico and led us right to all of their most interesting products.

OK, I had to give you at least one really easy one....here is your softball! Here the boss ladies are featured with one of our very favorite manufacturers.

Everyone always asks for a me to post a picture of myself on the blog, so here is one of me and Melissa. She works for the supplier pictured above. She is also a kit packer, so we always get together and talk about packing and share strategies. Our new motto is "Kit Packers Unite!"

I thought that I would leave you with one last image. Stephen just took this picture of all of us sitting around the conference room table in the hotel room. Scarlet and April are sitting on one side planning add-ons, Greg is sitting at the end of the table in his hand-me-down Dr. scrubs reading the message board, Hannah (Stephen's wife) is catching up on email and facebook and I am sitting at the other end of the table blogging like crazy.

OK, that is all for tonight. Tomorrow I will have a visual puzzle for you and some pictures of our team building exercise. We are planning to take an Air Boat tour and see some local wildlife tomorrow afternoon.

See you tomorrow.....Lorie
