Yes, sometimes I feel like I'm always on a plane going somewhere...and that's because I retired going into my 5th year and now I can go anywhere at any time and..... I DO !!!
So, going back 2 weeks ago, here's a little trip down the CHA aisles
Running into friends I've had for years and years and adore every one of them
doing a Make It-Take It at the Crystal Ninja Booth
they have a new tool....The Crystal Kubaton
Steve, at the Plaid booth, was very busy demoing and never even looked up !!!
Running into MORE friends
Impress Art has a brand new ergonomic hammer coming out for jewelry makers...I played with it and I love it.
Sakura Glaze Pens are amazing...they may not be new but they'll never be old
some examples of Sakura pens by artist and calligrapher Joanne Fink
Prima had the most delicious booth...filled with art and the artists latest products. Here is Anna Dabrowska (aka) 'Finnabairs' offering
Friends just seemed to magically appear
more goodies from The Prima booth
I actually sat down and wrote an order for the magnificent products that will be coming in March from Sandra Evertson
I'm also a very big fan of NUNN design and love her new opaque pigments that you mix into resin. I ordered them too.
here is an example of the "look" you can get using them
Everywhere you looked....friends...gotta stop..do the picture !
Stopped at the Chain maille booth and their 'make it take' was a pair of little earrings.
Ranger had new little dabbers, new ink pads, and new colors
Spellbinders designs their booth so, as you walk around it, you get a taste of all the different things they're into
Fun Stampers Journey
A Gilded Life
some of the items in the display cases featuring new and innovative products were....
Artistic Wire/Beadalon won an award for their new bracelet JIG
more in the jewelry related field
and some way cool wood stamps from India
but of course, as I said before....the BEST part of going every year is seeing friends.
I love every one of them.
More from CHA later...c'mon back !
