I had an amazing time at CHA 2013 which is THE craft and hobby trade show. It is really the place to be for meeting crafty celebrities and checking out tons of cool products. I am also reflecting on being a CHA newbie over on the Craft Test Dummies blog.
CHA is in gorgeous Anaheim, CA. It was a bit chilly but the sun did shine while we were there.
I decided to pick just one product that I found at the trade show that made my heart stop. The trade show is huge and I thought it would be hard to pick just one product. Boy was I wrong. My heart stopped and I swooned when I saw this….
Cue the angels singing y’all. Sizzix has a mason jar die! You hear the angels too right? I am absolutely, 100% drooling here! I cannot find it on their website yet so I am assuming it is a soon to be released design. I am waiting with baited breath…in case you are reading Sizzix….
There was no shortage of your favorite bloggers at the show. I met so many wonderful people that I have “known” online for years. Each and everyone of them was as nice as their online persona.
I will even let you play the game of find your favorite blogger in the picture below. What a great bunch of girls!
While the show was full of work, we had to have a little fun as well. A small group of us went to Disneyland Saturday night. We had an amazing time and this southern girl had her first churro (is that how you spell it??). Yes it was amazing! (Psst if you need planning tips for your next trip to Disneyland be sure to check out this site.)
It was a whirlwind 3 day trip full of inspiration, work, and fun. Now it is back to the business of blogging. Want to read even more about CHA? I am pinning all the recap posts I find on my Pinterest board so be sure to follow along. Did you write up a CHA 2013 recap? Drop me a link and I will pin it so everyone can find it!
