Today was our third day at CHA. We had a great time. We got to sleep in (finally) and get Starbucks (with no line) before we got to CHA.  We decided to start where we had ended on Saturday because we had no pattern on Sunday. We made it a lot farther today – but not far enough!  Tomorrow will be a mad dash – we have so much more to see!

Here are a few highlights-
A make & take at paper house – this is their finished project (no I don’t know who’s kid it is) mine didn’t look as nice..

We met a lot of new stamp & paper companies today (exciting) so here are a few:

Some cute cards sfom some odd girl stamps
Freckled Fawn with some cute embellishments
Cute card stock from Chickaniddy

And cute wood cut outs and cool paper from crafty wood cut outs
New stamps from AHA arts
And glu6 – glue that’s made from recycled styrofoam 

And neat water bottles that turn into storage – unless bottled water
And the hobby holster to hold your heat gun –
And cute paper & embellishments from monte paper mill
And cute stamps from Avery Elle
We got to use the new chameleon  markers

And then off to Morton’s for happy hour!

Lots to see tomorrow!


CHA day 1

And Welcome from our first day at CHA. My friend (and co-conspirator in the Creations by Crafty Card Gallery Magazine) and I flew down this morning and got to CHA around 2. After a quick lunch at a food truck outside we went in.

If you’ve never been CHA is the Craft and Hobby Association trade show it is like crafting heaven!  This is the show that had every craft manufacturer and product you could ever think of – and then some. It is HUGE!

So we started at row 2900 and only made it to row 2700 – the first row is 300!  We have a lot to cover over the next few days. So here are a few highlights:

Landmarks knit from yarn

A gorgeous jeweled mixer
