CHA 2014

I returned earlier this week from the Craft & Hobby show in Anaheim. I had decided to attend—at the last minute—on a whim. Gotta keep those market research and networking skills current... I sure do love this industry and it's exciting to see all the many companies so passionate about what they do. It was nice to see a few familiar faces and take a minute to catch up.

I didn't take as many pictures as I normally do... probably due to how quick the trip was.  I am absolutely loving all of the new Tim Holtz stuff.  Happy to see a strong mixed media presence and card making is still in full force.

I always love seeing the displays.  Particular favorite what the knitted wonders of the world exhibit from (I think Red Lion).  Also loving all the marquee signs.  Very trendy.

Sorry about the formatting of this post. My phone and blogger are not very friendly right now and everything is way out of alignment.  I am not going to take the minute to figure out how to fix it today...


Weekend fun

I spent this past weekend in California for the Craft and Hobby Association show (CHA). I had an excellent time walking the show, observing industry trends, and catching up with old friends. It was a successful and super quick trip for me. Packed with inspiration and walking... in on Saturday morning, out Sunday night.  

Chris and the boys also packed their weekend with fun. They made Indian food (Andrew did most of the cooking and directing), attended baseball and soccer commitments, sledded (big cottonwood) and watched movies. Chris sent me pictures from their weekend and I was quickly jealous of their good time. I don't leave the kids very often anymore...

Hope you enjoyed some highlights from our weekend(s). More CHA pictures in a future post.
