CHA Winter 2012

We are back from CHA 2012 and it was a blast! We are SO excited about this year's new products and upcoming events!

Landed in L.A. and then we were off to Anaheim!

You may wonder, what is CHA? CHA stands for Craft and Hobby Association and they have a conference and tradeshow twice a year. The one we just went to was the Winter 2012 Conference and Tradeshow.

We're here and it's sunny!

While at CHA, we got to see quite a few familiar faces we have not seen in a while, had opportunities to network with companies to create a better end user experience, and find items that we have had customers request.

But most importantly, the intention of attending CHA is to always find the newest and most inspirational products to allow you to tell your story and best utilize your creativity. We love being able to share new ideas, techniques, and projects with you.

Now, here is the exclusive sneak peek at most of the new products we will be carrying this year.
