I had the unique opportunity yesterday to attend CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) 2015 Mega Show! CHA is THE place for exhibitors in the craft and hobby world get together in one HUGE arena to strut all their latest and greatest… and buyers hop from booth to booth to take it all in and place their orders for the new year.
My good friend, Heidi Sonboul happens to be one of those amazing exhibitors who started her scrapbooking line of paper and embellishments (definitely oogle-worthy) just last year. This was Chickaniddy‘s 2nd time at CHA and Heidi asked me to come help her in her booth for the day. I had a really fun time showing off all the really fun and creative things that Heidi put together to make up her 2 new lines: 365 and Yippee. If you’re a paper-crafter, you’ll have to ask your nearest scrapbook store for details on Chickaniddy Crafts… I want to wear ALL of it!
But, lucky me, even though I was ‘working’ at the Chickaniddy booth, I did get to go off on little jaunts to tour around the convention center. I did not even touch half of the exhibitors, but I got to try a bunch of make and takes, talk to different vendors about iCandy and meet a bunch of new people. I had the BEST day!
…and Heidi introduced me to some of my favorite Scrap celebrities that I have been following since Jr High and High School. (me and Heidi Swapp—(*squeal!*)
I loved taking a peek at all the new designs and trends for 2015. Inspiration was all over the place, and it got my creativity revved up after the draining Holiday season. This globe was one of my favorite things. (from the My Minds Eye booth…which had the most fun people working at it, but the way!)
I can’t wait to see what’s to come in 2015! Are you ready!?
