Day 1 at Convention

Today has been a wonderful, but exhausting day. I arrived yesterday in Washington, DC for Close To My Heart's Convention. We are staying at the Gaylord Hotel. I can't believe how big this hotel is. There are 2000 rooms!!!! I was told that this is their smallest hotel. I am trying to find my way around. There are 1200 consultants and so much excitement. I am hoping to run into some of my blogging and Facebook Friends. We started the day with the General Session. We were introduced to some new products and were entertained by Jeanette Lynton and her team. After that we had lunch and then spent the day learning new techniques in each of the eight Extravaganza classes.

And the best part, the entertainment. Jeanette and Monica pretending to watch TV. We watched what they were watching on the big screens.There was CTMH's version of the Brady Bunch.Christine as Mrs. B and Monica as Alice.Then there was "Desperate Scrappers."
And, best of all, Jeanette as the "Apprentice."

Lastly, we had the CTMH girls dancing to Beyonce's "All the Single Ladies", CTMH style "All the Scrapping Ladies." "If you like it, put some bling on it.

I so wish I was there! Looks like tons of fun. Maybe next year I will be able to make it. I am hoping it is closer to Colorado so I can drive.
