See You at CHA! Blog Hop: Sneak Peek & Giveaway

Welcome to the See You at CHA! Blog Hop, running online from 12/7 to 12/11. Nearly 60 participants are posting to celebrate the upcoming 75th meeting of the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) at their annual conference and trade show in Anaheim, CA on 1/7 to 1/12/16.


This conference brings together manufacturers, retailers, designers and other creative professionals from the craft and arts worlds. Companies exhibit their newly released product lines, workshops and business seminars are held, and there are endless formal and informal networking connections happening round the clock.


While the event takes place in January, the excitement starts today with this Blog Hop. All participants will be sharing new product sneak peeks, details about their workshops or demos, project tutorials or their own personal show stories. If you cannot attend the show, this Blog Hop is the next best thing to being there. Oh and did I mention that you have a chance to win a $625 gift card?!?!

------------------

This will be my third year attending CHA and definitely the one I am most excited about. I will be teaching two workshops, walking the aisles to better be able to report the trends to you, and -- most excitedly --releasing new products with two companies.

I will be releasing 12 new rubber stamps with Impression Obsession and demoing in their booth #521, with schedule to be determined. These new designs, along with my already-released stamps shown below, will bring my line with them up to 34 individual stamps. 




------------------

I am also releasing my first collection with Spellbinders, with whom I am developing a full line of mixed media products. This first release consists of dies, embossing folders, rubber stamps and a  journal/planner/artist book set. If you are attending, please stop by their booth #1735 to see me demoing at the following times:

Saturday 1/9 - 10:00 - 12:00
Sunday 1/10 - 11:15 - 1:15
Monday 1/11 - 1:30 - 3:30

As promised, a glimpse of what you will see...

Spellbinders is also hosting their own CHA Roundup with giveaways for an entire week beginning today. Click here to visit today's participants, head here to sign up for updates about the entire CHA experience, and come back to my blog on Friday 12/11 for some full product reveals.
