CHA was last week. For me as a crafter it is a whirlwind of stimulation. Not only visually but mentally. It is the best place to see new products and to learn about others hands on. Also it is wonderful being around people with the same creative interests. Again this year I brought my camera and never took it out of the bag. I took two classes this time around. One fantastic and the other not so much. The not so good class did not fit the description and was very short. The rest of the time I spent walking the floor or in the Unity Stamp Company booth. USC is a new stamp company that created the most unique monting system that is sure to please both the traditional rubber mounted stampers and also the acrylic fans. The owners Angela and Christian have really tried to think of everything. They released over 1,000 images. Variety was not lacking. There are styles to appeal to almost anyone.
I also participated in the Designer Showcase and I was really pleased with the results. Over 50 Designers participated and the works displayed were amazing.
I will try to update my blog with details of the show and products that caught my attention as time allows. Time is a valuable commodity right now as the week before CHA my husband was promoted and we are being transfered to Wilmington, NC. It is going to be a difficult yet exciting move. We will be 12 hours from our friends and family. When we lived in Indianapolis it was only a 2 hour drive.
I will also be posting photos of past projects. The first is a layout, candle wrap and card created for Pazzles in Sept. 2007
