So here you have it, my final post from day “3” at the Craft & Hobby Association Show. Honestly, this show stuff is not for the faint of heart. I was so exhausted by 1 today, with all the mixed media and such in front of me, my head was spinning!
I found bling from a really neat company that has partnered up with Spellbinders and it totally matches the dies! For those of you who really know me~ it is all about the adhesive. Cause what’s the point if you peel off the bling, which is supposed to match up to say, labels “2” and the adhesive rips?! Well this stuff is just pretty, darn good. I will let you be the judge. The rep says it will arrive within 2-3 weeks. So we won’t have long to wait!
We will be getting new kits from “Quick Quotes” which are lovely. Also interesting letterpress embossing folders. The neat thing with these are they are to be used with at least 100 lb paper which has this beautiful feel of richness with texture.
I had a quick peek at my wonderful friends from the Netherlands booth. They would love to take a trip to Chilliwack and come and teach. Now how cool would that be???
Anyway with that, I sign off as I prepare for the trip home. I am thinking about just having a “bag” viewing of the new catalogues at the store. There is just so much to see it’s overwhelming! So, stay tuned and I will keep you posted on our BLOG, FACEBOOK, and TWITTER. I am liking the whole “twitter” sounding thing. We are twittering with maybe “12” followers so far, but just search for CHA show and I think you will be amazed at everything there is!
Another great motto from the show: “To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong”~See you soon,

After day one at CHA I have a new motto~ “Be Calm and Carry On”! This wonderful new paper collection from Reminisce features these words. It’s always been one of my favorite collections for travel, and this year is no exception with their new collection of vintage travel papers and stickers. A wonderful package of these samples just arrived on Friday before I left for the show so, we hope to have these in stock by early February.
Next on the list~ “bottle caps”. Now what is that all about? I think Bev and I bought these for the shop over 10 years ago when there wasn’t much to choose from. This time around there seem to be more choices. Let me know what you think? So many possibilities, so much fun!!!!Moving right along~NEW from Mr. Tim Holtz…. Distress Markers in all the 36 distress colors!!! So amazing! I was thinking ” just another pen”? Well not quite. He also has new rubber stamps WOW!The Bella Blvd. Baby collections are truly adorable. They come with mini flags, ribbons and other do-dads (for lack of a better description). Who doesn’t love happy, little zoo animals?Basic Grey has an interesting collection called “What’s Up”. Their papers feature hot air balloons, row houses and vibrant coral colors. How Fun!Up next are “brag books” from Fancy Pants. For those of you that got hooked on “Smash Books” this past year, these are just as fun! They remind me of my first trip to Disneyland, when I kept everything to put in an album as a souvenir once I got home. Who would have thought they would eventually make something to put match books and sugar packets into? The themes they have created are wonderful and you can’t help but smile when you think back to why you actually kept the things you did.
For those of you who like to stamp and color with Copic markers or others, I found an adorable girly stamp collection from a little company in Washington State called “Sparkle”. They also have a few “guy” stamps that are adorable too! I am sure you will love these images that are so much fun to color!
Barb says she will send a pic of her “extra bed”, good thing no one else is there, where would they sleep? I think it’s probably full of brochures and catalogues?
Make sure to check us out tomorrow as we will have more updates from Barb at the 2012 CHA Show!
