CHA January 2010

We exhibited at CHA in Anaheim at the end of January. We showcased our newest product Scor-Buddy. Here is a video from CHA
While at CHA we got to meet some of the staff from Magnolia Sweden. We had a lovely dinner with John and Barbro. Pauline is the designer of the Magnolia stamps, John is her step-father and Barbro is her mother. Tilda and Edwin are Pauline's children and I got to see a photo of them. Edwin is 8 and Tilda 5. Edwin is quiet, studious, loves to draw and Tilda is very active. It was wonderful to see our beloved Tilda and Edwin in real life. A stamps in the Raising the Ceiling Collection is Wilma the dog, she is named after Barbro's dog. As you can see it is a very family oriented company. I got to learn some of the ins and outs of the company which was fascinating. I was allowed to choose for myself one of the cards on display. This is the one I chose. It is a step card. I will take a photo of the whole card for you. It is a magnificent card and when they said I could choose I knew exactly which one I wanted. It is water coloured with re-inkers.
 Here are some close ups of the card.

Hi Diana and my goodness, I just stumbled across your blog having recently bought a couple of stamps from you. I was thrilled to see the Easter card I made and that you chose it at CHA! I can't tell you how happy I am that it's living with the biggest Magnolia fan in the USA :D!! Hugs, Chris
