so i was wanting to promote the iron ons! i put iron on sayings on about 50 t-shirts…
out of control… but so cute and giving people way more reasons to use the iron! which we all need!

my feet were killing me … so eric went and got me and emily CROCS… they are fabulous! if you don’t have any… go get some. they are only like $30 bucks! we are loving them and tons of people here at the show have them on… the pink is pretty bright!

i did have a big surprise! my cousin nanci jarman flew in from AZ for the show… she has not been on a plane in like seven years-she hates flying!… she came here with becky higgins…and walked right up to the booth and i was so excited so surprised!
Nanci
the best part of coming to the show is seeing the amazing people that are in this industry! we are all so swamped, but when we get a few minutes together it’s golden! here are a few of the friendly faces that dropped by!

OK,
i am committed to taking more photos tomorrow!
maybe i should photograph the new product! and especially the catalog… it’s so cute!
alright…
going to sleep!

    Hey sis, just wanted to say how cute the booth looks, and that I’m glad you posted to your blog since I’m working a night shift and it’s like 4:30 in the morning. So fun to have something good to check out! Wish I were there, love you miss you!

    How cute are those shirts? I love them and you all look so stylish in them! I love the signage as well. Can’t wait to see more and am checking out those shoes!

    I sooo wish I was there right now!!! Your booth was absolutely gorgeous Heidi! And, I heard about the jar of flowers… I cannot wait to get my hands on some of them – especially the pink ones!

    What do you mean don’t get your haircut when you’re preggo before a show? It looks chic…could you get any cuter!! Oh yeah, and your booth looks great and I’m jealous of the contacts you have, the friends you get to hang around, the fact that you have a logo AND a product design…and okay you get it. You are living the “sweet life” in my eyes. Hope you savor every minute of it! In truth, I am very happy for people like you who love their job, family, and even have funky shoes to round it all out.

    Lookin’ good Heidi. I love the bright pink shoes. You all more marvelous, Darling! I love your new stuff. After scanning sites for hours for pictures, I see you have outdone your self. I see you have set a major trend with the blooms. I even saw some tape. You are just the most famous name in the industry. Everyone knows HS! You have such an amazing and talented staff. Keep up the good work. I can’t wait to meet you in April. I am so addicted to HS SB stuff. I am a major stockholder. More pictures please.

    The booth looks fabulous! And I love the T-shirts! I’ve already heard how wonderful they are, and how your new stuff is totally great! Two of my best friends are out there, and one even called me from your booth so I could “experience” the oo’s and ah’s ~ it was too funny.
    Love the crocs ~ they are sooo comfortable. I have a brown pair, and did you know, they also have a salmon pink? Sydnie has the bright pink ones and a pair of lime green ones (my next pair)!
    So glad everything is going well ~ like you really had anything to worry about! Thanks for posting the pictures. I have now been able to experience CHA through pictures & phone calls. (I also got a phone call from the Elton John concert last night around midnight ~ I’m 3 hours ahead). It’s so fun. Next year, when the kids are a little older, I’ll be there!
    By the way, your hair looks great! And you seem to be feeling good. Any more nausea? I have no idea how you do it, and you pull everything together so well! Have fun!!

    WOW! Great sign, love the shirts! You are so right, I need an iron and all of those iron ons! I have wanted to make a pair of Jeans since the last CHA! 🙂 Now what on earth are you talking about with the hair? It looks fab! And those crocs are too cute! I am a huge pink fan so now I need those too! Great photos thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share with us! Get some rest for you and the baby!

    Duh! I just re-read the blog. For other folks who don’t know – the T-shirts are made with Heidi’s new iron ons. Now, I can them all!! Yeah!!

    Hi Heidi!
    Lovin’ all of your fun new stuff (and all of the fun old stuff too- lol!). Those shirts are so adorable.
    I may have to get some of those crocs… I’m 6 1/2 months pregnant and my feet are starting to kill me! Anything comfortable sounds awesome!
    Looking forward to meeting you in April at the big event in Birmingham! 🙂

    i have never scrapped a book in my life, but your stuff makes it almost irresistible, even to this hard core, serious-art-only book binder. i feel myself being sucked into the vortex that that is heidi swapp.

    Heidi,
    You don’t know me, but I briefly met you at CKU-Stamford. I was at Target this morning and saw the cutest pink and brownish home decor stuff in their Asia line and thought it looked like you (what I know of you from reading your blog and seeing your product). So, I just thought I’d share.

    Heidi, I truly LOVED getting to see your booth and especially meeting & getting my pic with you on tuesday at CHA. Thank you for taking time to talk w/me and my friend, it totally made our day and you’re every bit as cute and sweet and I knew you’d be. Your booth, catalog and product totally ROCK and I know it will all be a huge success for you. You’ve worked hard and it shows so WAY TO GO!!!

    Heidi..your stuff is amazing as ever! Unfortunately I couldn’t go and will have to be happy that you are once again sponsoring us gals at Cropper’s Cottage! Thank you!! Is there any chance you can share where you got the shirts from??

    Heidi, Heidi you remind me a lot of the PINK Energizer Bunny . . . you are not going . . . you’re coming . . . up with new bright, happy stuff for us to play with. Signs. . . the best! Booth looked so great in the pics. From the comments, you may need to sell the shirts along with everything else. Amazing Crocs . . . I’ve wanted some since last summer. In Oct. I got navy ones & for winter, black one so I could shovel snow with them. Forgotten what that’s like? The PINK are pretty flamingo if you ask me. “Keep on coming” Heidi. That is when you’re at your best!

    Ok, first off: the new signage RAWKS!
    secondly, love the T’s!!
    thirdly, the Crocks!!!!!!!!!!
    I now have lite yellow, hot pink, black and navy! My husband isn’t too sure about the pink ones, but I know that there is also a lime green out there somewhere and they have my name written all over them!
    welcome home!

    Heidi you gave me the pleasure of a picture with you and I must say all the girls are jealous!!!! THANX!

Her friend was so excited to get your little note that yo wrote her and the pictures I took…THANX AGIAN! You are just the cutest thing!
    And I need to get those shoes!!!

    Okay.. I will bite.. I gather Crocks are some sort of footwear.. I don’t live under a rock, but I am in Canada.. chances are good we dont have them.. could someone post a link or a description on why these rock?
    Thanks.. everything looks great btw..

    Just spent the last 3 days with my longtime “scrapbook buddies” at our annual retreat in Ocala, FL. You and the “SHE” product were a hit with all.
    Never lose your sense to inspire…you have a gift, cherish it,like we do!
