Craft Super Show Day 2
I know, what the heck is Debra Norvelle doing at CHA?? Apparently she is a big time knitter and has her own line of yarn and yarning things...I'm not a knitter so I don't know what that might entail! ANYhow, she was there promoting her books through Barnes and Noble at the show. So, just because I was star-struck I had to take a picture and share it with you!! More freebies awaited us at today's show... there were hologram glitter sample packs, fabric batting that sticks to paper/cardboard (from the Joann's booth), Sizzix sticker sheets, velvet flowers, and mini trim scissors. I came across a new company at the show called Woodware USA. I loved every set they had, I couldn't leave the booth! In talking with one of the hosts in the booth, I learned that CHA was the launch of their own line of stamps called "Clear Magic" stamps for the US market. They are based out of the UK where they have been a distributor for several rubber stamp and craft companies for over 15 years. I also met the owner and he shared with me a very cool line of ink pads they are about to launch, but that's coming in May -- more about that later. Anyhow, check out their website and see all the great images they have! I snagged the Flower Frames set, Mary and Friends, and a cute script set called Jane's Script. I can't wait to get home to crack these things open!! :) There was so much to see and so many booths, and I ended up not taking too many more photos. Sorry :( The time went so fast! I did fill up my suitcase with fun goodies that I am thrilled with -- some really good deals in the lot too! But I do know all the big reveals that we're all anxious to hear about will be starting tomorrow when the Trade show begins. I'll be on the look out for bloggers that are going to be there and share them with you when I find them. But tomorrow we're off to Disneyland!! We watched the fireworks from the balcony of our hotel room tonight, purdy neato!! I haven't been to Disney anything since I was a child! I imagine more adventures await us in the morning!! Thanks for stopping by!!
