For those not familiar with what CHA is - here's a little info:

'CHA' is an acronym for Craft and Hobby Association.  In general, the CHA hosts a conference and trade show twice each year.  The Winter 2013 conference took place in California - USA making the city of Anaheim 'the happiest place on earth' for more than one reason!

Manufacturers, retailers and various media gurus from all over the globe flock together to share new, soon-to-be-released products, inspiring ideas and tons of resources.  We  CHA!

We were excited to see the new paper crafting collections from companies like Basic Grey, Fancy Pants Designs, Simple Stories, Echo Park Paper and so many more!  Here are a few pics:

One of the highlights of the show has to be touching base with those friends we normally only visit with by phone or email.  Cynthia from Doodlebug Design, Inc. always has a smile and a hug ready!  She's incredible and she makes CHA that much more special!  

I wish I had time to take snap shots of all of the designers and manufacturers, but we were busy buying, buying, buying!

Watch Byron tell us about BasicGrey's Mint Julep collection:

We're expecting more new product the next coming months than ever! 

We hope you like what you see in the shoppe.  As always, we're working hard to provide the item selection, service and shipping speed you come to expect from us.  Thanks for helping us do what we love to do!
