CHA Mega Show 75th Anniversary Blog Hop



Santana Designs DT members at the 2015 CHA Mega Show Smoothfoam booth 
I can't believe it has been a year since the last CHA Mega ShowI had a blast last year at the show and I am looking forward to attending the 2016 CHA Mega Show. I can't wait to see all of the new products, and reconnect with all of the wonderful people I met last year.

Highlights Of Last Years Show
2015 was my first time attending the CHA Mega show and I have to admit I was pretty overwhelmed. I didn't really have a plan of attack so to say, so I wandered around the show floor with my design team like kids at recess.  

We had a fun time in Anna Griffith's booth
It was great meeting Mark Montano and getting a signed copy of his new book.


I almost lost Jim forever in the feather booth
We did eventually get some actual work done and met some crafty friends in the process.
This year I am printing out a show floor map and highlighting the booths I want to spend the most time in. I am going to stay on a schedule and stay focused, which is going to be very hard for my sparkle loving ADD brain to accomplish, but I'm going to give it a try.

What I'm Looking Forward To Seeing At The 2016 CHA Mega Show

I will be on the lookout for the latest and most innovative products to offer to my customers. I can't wait to see all of the new releases from my favorite brands. I also contribute to a few manufacturer's design teams so I am looking forward to seeing the Clear Scraps booth and also taking a class taught by Ann Butler. I am also looking forward to meeting my fellow design team members at the show!

Looking forward to see the new releases but my credit card will die under the stress!
My must have crafting essentials are stamps and ink

Teresa Doyle said...

Oh my goodness I can't wait to see what all is in store for us. CHA would be an exciting place to spend a week. I would be overwhelmed, I'm sure. My must have tool: Tonic paper cutter, I'd be lost without it.

wait to see what new stamps are coming our way. They are my favorite
crafting item!

ENJOY EVERY MOMENT and GOOD LUCK on sticking to your plan ... I confess, I would be TOTALLY DISTRACTED by all the CRAFTY DELIGHTS and CREATIVE TALENT, not sure where to turn :)
PS - I can't live without my self healing craft mat, it is part of every project I create. I use the cutting side to cut, the grid on the cutting side to align and the reverse side for when I am adhering layers together => YES, it is an AWESOME tool!!!

Laura Bray said...

I can't wait to See You at CHA! Great post.

Judith Taylor said...

I can't live without beautiful papers.

My favorite crafting tool would be my computer: I have hundreds of GBs of videos, templates and techniques accrued over the last decade all stored in small spaces (external hard drives) that would have necessitated in buying up all the houses on my block in order to store all the magazines and videotapes that were otherwise available.

I totally agree...the Internet is the best craft tool!!!
