One Craftastic Week!

Wow! That was what I kept saying over and over during my week at CHA Summer here in Orlando. To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement but it was an incredible week. As I mentioned before I was working at the Best Creations booth with my friend Zanne and it was a great experience. The company specializes in glitter paper that no matter how many times I rubbed the paper the glitter did not come off. (I did not get tired of demoing that - right Zanne?) Here are a few photos from the booth.

Many said that this show was a lot smaller then shows in the past but since this was my first CHA I was just happy to be there. We worked hard and each nigh
t I got home completely exhausted but totally happy. On Thursday we walked the show and I took as many pictures as I could of some of the absolutely gorgeous up and coming items.

Here are some very cool things I fell in love with:

Basic Grey was one of my favorite booths and Nook & Pantry is my favorite new line though it is followed closely by Indian Summer!

All things Tim Holtz top my list. I was lucky enough to watch him demo the new Distress Stickles and seriously I could have watched him all day, so inspiring and just an all around nice guy!

Lots of new goodies from Tattered Angels too which I'm excited about. I've posted before how much I love Glimmer Mist and I don't see that changing anytime in the near future!! So many awesome things coming out!

Beautiful new things from Jenni Bowlin! I love all the tickets they are precious! And her booth was just cute and vintage and fun!

Not only are the girls at Glitz Design beautiful and fun but their stuff is GORGEOUS! I can see pairing these fun and gorgeous things with my stash of House of 3 goodies! I love when that happens!

We also did a quick make and take at the Tombow booth, now I'm in love with their adhesive and have been for quite some time their tape runner is the only one I'll use but I was in the dark about their fantastic markers. Thankfully I have seen the light and will be picking these up and playing!

I have so many more photos and stories that I could share but I don't want to bore you but before I close I have to thank Zanne one last time for thinking of me and throwing this opportunity my way and for introducing me to so many fabulous people! I also have to thank Gary, Richard, Joyce and Joy for a great week and great working experience. To everyone I met last week it was an absolute pleasure! Thank you for all the Facebook friend adds and the shared photos you are all so great!!

More Soon...
