Highlights from CHA…

January 31, 2007

Polymer Clay, Silversmithing, Stamping

So the whirlwind that is CHA is over & I’m back home to unwind. What a great few days. For those that have never been, CHA (the Crafting & Hobby Association) has a semi-annual tradeshow for the industry with over 3,000 booths to visit! There were make ‘n takes at most booths & a buzz in the air as buyers met sellers from all over the world! There were hundreds of talented designers scattered around the show floor as well.

Some of this year’s highlights for me… Meeting Carol (see previous blog entry) ;), classes with Tim Holtz & Lisa Pavelka, visiting with some of my favorite designers from the Hero Arts booth (hi Lisa & Shari!), talking to a few publishers, purchasing the new “it” tools from Zutter Innovative Products (will post more on these later when they arrive in the mail!), and seeing some friends from last year’s show.

Disneyland at nightI had the opportunity to catch up with one of my close friends, Caroline, and her fiance, Terry, on Sunday night as well. We spent the evening at Disneyland! It was a great way to see the park, in my opinion. Paid half the price because we were only there from 6-10, but we were able to visit most of the rides due to the short lines & see the Disney Fanstasmic night show on the river as well!

    Hi Laura!
    It was great talking to you, hope your travels home were safe. I’m back in the frigid depths of Illinois (not as fun as the nice So Cal weather).
    I’m looking forward to keeping in touch.
