Today was a great day at CHA. I saw so many great craft products and even more great ideas for projects to make with the projects. Lots of fuel for my blog. As promised, I took more pictures and I even compiled them into a top 5.
#1 My Mind’s Eye Of course my number one has to be My Mind’s Eye. Not just because I work there, but because they have truly beautiful paper. The giant tree with an owl was just gorgeous to see in person, and I loved the die-cut papers with Deena Rutter’s beautiful illustrations. And we cannot forget (cause she’ll hurt me) Carina’s beautiful Bella Bella. Love it all!
#2 Tim Holtz! (If you have watched Arrested Development, that’s even funnier) I met Tim Holtz this past year at a CKU, he’s such a great guy and a huge fan of just being creative. Everything that Tim does is with such great execution. He is so talented and I am constantly in awe of what he creates both as products and as beautiful art. I loved all the great touches in his booth like these stacked vintage suitcases.
#3 Silk Screen Machine. Provo Craft just released the YUDU — for those of you who have no idea how to pronounce that – its “You Do”. Yeah. Anyway, besides the interesting name, the product is truly amazing. I cannot wait to get my hands on this sucker and do some really awesome projects.
#4 All things cupcake. The craze that has swept the nation, is now sweeping CHA. I saw tons of very cute cupcake papers, crafts, ideas, samples, projects etc. All were so very sweet (hehe). I took a few photos and this is my favorite! A glittery decorative cupcake at the doodlebug designs booth.
#5 Cute Desks. Utilitarian desks were all over the place. We saw a great desk with a glass top and full length drawers that fit 12×12 papers. And I got a photo of this adorable green sewing desk and super fabulous (and back-supporting) padded chair. My other favorite desk had collapsable panels and a cutting mat that fit the entire top surface. I really need to get something this functional for my space.
There were so many great products at CHA, but these were 5 things that I really loved. If you went to CHA please share what you loved, I know I missed so many great things!
Oh! I almost forgot! We had some space-visitors at CHA this year and they were nice enough to pose with Me & Carina.
