Catch up at last...

phew its been a busy few weeks and of course I am miles behind in blogging.!!

I am currently in Frankfurt at Creative world, which is a mahoosive trade show. Unfortunately I am not too good, jet lag and heavy cold really kicking my ass, lol. So much so that I had to come home early from the show today!!!, probably a first, for some much needed catch up on rest and sleep.

After a few hours sorting all my photos I can now commence a mega series of blog posts, starting way back at CHA.

I arrived on the Wednesday, with Our Ben and started prepping all the samples and boards for the stands. Friday saw me teaching a 5hr triptych canvas class to a class of fabulous students and what a fabulous job they all did.

Two of my good friends who were happy to participate as elves in my class. Good job Cesar and Gentleman Jim. Mwah.

then it was back to setting up the show floor

CHA is a fabulous time for meeting up with old friends.

And then its the big breakdown of the stand.
