CHA Summer 2009

It was so much fun seeing my designer, manufacturer and editorial friends again and sharing the experience of CHA in the summer. I made new friends and enjoyed every minute of being with thousands of people in the craft and hobby association. Here are a few of my favorite experiences over the past week in Orlando.
  • Favorite class - Tim Holtz's Distress the Holidays .. loved the music and gobs of products

  • Favorite giveaway - Tim Holtz's 12x12 paper, Christmas Past Collection by Graphic 45, WOW!

  • Favorite new product .. now on my wish list - Tim Holtz's Idea-ology Tiny Attacher, unbelievable!

  • Favorite tool I used .. now on my wish list - Tim Holtz's non-stick micro serrated scissors .. too cool!

  • Favorite person and booth I visited - Diane Newman, Beacon Adhesive .. love their Liquid Laminate to coat my paper beads, appreciate Diane's continuing assistance

  • Favorite event - Designer Showcase .. enjoyed talking to everyone!

  • Favorite night event - dinner with Denise Clason and 12-14 other designers and friends
Tim Holtz is the most generous person in the CHA. As always, his class was amazing and the four extra giveaways and take-it, make-it project were a huge surprise. He is a genius when it comes to embellishing paper and coming up with new tools, nifty doodads (his mini-clips) and brilliant ideas. He genuinely loves what he does and it shows.
