The booths may be down and the flocks have gone home but there is still so much to show you from the CHA show floor
Firstly...just a few of my friends from over the many many years we've all been a part of the Craft & Hobby Association!! I'm sure you recognize many of them !
Fantastic ideas...always... at the Beadalon booth
Fantastic NEW CRIMPS...that I fell in love with and managed to score a few to play with at home (thank you Wyatt). For heavier, larger wire...a whole new look!!
at Pebeo...color galore
at PRIMA...The Relics and Artifacts by Sandra Evertson side..
On the FINNABAIR side...
watching Anna Dabrowska (aka Finnabair) demoing...fabulous !
Remember how popular the Rainbow Rubber Band looms were last year??? Well, they'll be coming out with a new bracelet loom very soon
I stopped at the Kuretake booth just to play with their Calligraphy markers...15 most relaxing moments...and left them with this fun sample
Another new craft to make a presence was from CRAY-PEN. A hot tip tool that you dip into crayon wax to paint with. Tip heats to 350 degrees....no adjustable temps...so, IMHO not the safest (heating crayons isn't very safe either to be honest!!), but everyone had fun with it.
Really liked MELISSA FRANCES eclectic booth and her metal stencils
CRAFTERS COMPANION has a new die cut/embosser machine coming out...
Whenever I stop at NUNN DESIGN I get such a high...Beckys samples are one of my very biggest inspirations.
But I MUST take extra time to tell you about the MOST beautiful new stamp line at the show....
CARABELLE cling stamps
an example using one of their stamps in different ways...
even though they are French you can see a translated version of their lovely blog here.
It was such a delight to see you again Madeleine (c)...who used to rep my Ranger product line for France.
if you are wholesale you can contact them here
3 cheers...WHITE RUBBER !!
Stencils too !!! of course !
The Ice Resin booth (now a part of Ranger) was sooooo busy and I am overjoyed for my special friends Jen Cushman and Susan Kazmer
They've developed new tints for resin, new bezels in beautiful new finishes and much more
