CHA Winter 2014 Re-Cap

Craft and Hobby Conference/Tradeshow 2014: Anaheim, CA

CHA Winter 2014 is officially in the books!  New product purchased, meetings with Manufacturers keps and MILES walked!  What a blast.  Warning - this post is image heavy so be patient if you're browsing on your smartphone!

The energy at the show was full of expectation and creativity!  We love that feeling.  Maybe it was because this is the time so many companies begin to focus on Spring and Summer themes.  It's a nice break from the cold Winter!

As always, one of my favorite reasons to attend the show is to meet designers face to face.  Email and phone calls just cannot replace real connections!

The paper crafting product releases did not disappoint!  We're excited to see all of the items.  Some goodies are already beginning to arrive in the A Cherry On Top shop!

I'm thrilled to be able to do what I do.  It's great to touch the new product and renew old and create new friends!  I even got to meet a few ACOT customers!  How great is that?

Remember to visit our CHA 2014 Sneak Peeks page often!  Deb and Clint are constantly adding new items.  We're also always adding to our Pre-Order section - be the first in line to get the new paper crafting and scrapbooking items as they arrive in the warehouse!
