I'm a lucky gal. Twice a year, I have the opportunity to attend the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) tradeshow. What an inspiring place! It's where companies introduce their new lines, complete with awesome booths and incredible projects. I always come home with so many ideas!
I thought I'd share a few of my favorite CHA project-finds with you. I hope you find them as inspiring as I do.
|Isn't this cool? Kelly Purkey made a map of the places she's traveled and included pictures. It was on display in the Studio Calico booth. If you look closely at St. Louis, you'll see me. That was a good trip! |
|This is a Clip It Up storage system that has been painted pink. Why didn't I ever think to paint mine pink? Love that idea! Thanks, Nikki Sivils booth, for the clever idea!|
|I'm always attracted to colorful layouts, and this one found in the Paper Smooches booth simply shines! |
|So sweet! I can definitely see myself adding this idea to my future nursery. Thanks, Silhouette, for the idea!|
|Yes, those are candy Dots! How cute! Thanks for the party idea, Ellison. |
|Leave it to the Doodlebug to inspire me with color. Look at that sweet card and layout. Both so cheery!|
|I admit, I have an Edward layout in my own album, so I was naturally drawn to this page in the SEI booth. Besides the hella handsome fella, I love the circles along the side. |
|Love this, Maya Road! Thanks for the words of inspiration! |
|These are yarn-bombed chairs. So cool! |
|I'm very into yarn art right now, and I loved seeing all of the yarn displays at this show. |
|This wreath, on display in the Jillibean Soup booth, is made from jar lids. What a clever creative approach!|
|More yarn fun! This yarn-wrapped tree was standing tall in the Heidi Grace booth. I want to wrap a tree in a neutral color (white or gray) and switch out the ornaments for the various seasons. Fun!|
I could go on and on but I guess I'll stop here. Thanks, CHA, for another inspiring show!
