#ProjectLife, Who doesn’t LOVE the latest and greatest at the #CHAShow

If you read my previous post, you know that Becky Higgins is truly an inspiration of mine. I love everything about her. She truly embodies what I believe to be the American dream for a woman entrepreneur. Here are some pics of her newest lines along with some of the favorites too from the #CHAShow! IMAG3645-579x1024 IMAG3648-579x1024IMAG3653-579x1024IMAG3655-579x1024IMAG3649-579x1024IMAG3651-1024x579 (1)IMAG3647-1024x579

Good afternoon!!
I don’t know if you know this but for some reason.. every time I see Becky Higgins, I cry… Like a goober. I have been inspired by her for so many years. I am so proud of her and her amazing creativity. She is so gracious, kind and genuine. There really isn’t anyone like her. And yes, she posed for this one :-D


#CHASHOW Education day #TeresaCollins

Good afternoon!

Today, I have taken some awesome classes. Not only some great business classes but some technique and product classes too! Is there anything you would like to see from the show? Any type of product you are interested in? Let me know and I will do my best to get information for you!! The show floor opens tomorrow!!

One of my favorite classes so far was with Teresa Collins. She shared some amazing projects and product she is working on and I can’t wait to see Some of them on the floor tomorrow! She is amazingly inspirational, uplifting and really encourages you to not limit yourself. I am really bad at that. I have that negative voice too but I am going to work hard to overcome that….Or at least put it at bay.

Stay tuned..I will be sharing more with u!!
