Hello my crafty friends! Last week the Craft and Hobby Association's winter trade show was in full swing! As I mentioned in my last blog post before the show….sometime the best laid plans are made for naught! My intention was to blog throughout the duration of the show…and alas…I was foiled by technology. While I had plenty of time to post…I was unable to get onto the internet again. Frustrating!
The good news is that there is still much to share! We are going to get started with a special treat today! It happens to be hop day for Designer Crafts Connection and the theme du jour is CHA! So, here's the plan…..first, check out my favorite display at the show below, then hop forward or back using the Designer Crafts blinkie in the sidebar over there ——————————–>
You can also see more from the show on our Pinboard on Pinterest! All the designers have been adding pics to it and there are only more to come. Enjoy!
One of my favorite booths to check out at the show is Styrofoam. They always have something cool there. One year it was a 6 foot bird! I was dying to see what they did for this show, so it was my first stop. Much to my delight I came across this adorable rendition of the angry birds' pigs:
Of course, I reacted like the big kid that I am and practically squealed out loud (Hey, I have to be professional! lol). Naturally, I began to search for the angry birds. I mean, we can't let the pigs get all the attention…they are thieves, after all! I searched around their booth for a little bit with no luck locating any birds, when a lovely Styrofoam staff member noticed me and asked if they could help. They drew my attention across the aisle to the Testors' booth…and there they were:
It was quite brilliant, I thought! It made me really happy to see these little guys represented in such a way at CHA! What a hoot!
Well, that's it for today…only because there is so much still to see. So go hop around. I'll be doing the same because I am certain I missed a lot this show!
