Creativation 2017 It’s been a whirlwind of craftiness and friends at Creativation by CHA (Craft and Hobby Association)!  If you’ve followed along, you’ve seen updates, live videos and more on Facebook and Instagram.

Several people have asked me what Creativation is and how do you get to go?

Creativation is a GIANT trade show where all sorts of amazing crafting companies (from stamping and paper crafting to sewing an knitting) show their fabulous products that are already on the market and some that are premiering at the show!  (read:  we get to see brand new STUFF!).

Store or company owners, bloggers, designers, etc….are able to attend.

Photos at the top….how about those COLORS!!!???  so bright and beautiful.  That is the Ken Oliver Color Burst pallette.  Gorg.

Next is Shawna Clingerman, me and Traci Reed.  Traci Reed is the creative talent behind the amazingly popular GeoBuilders Stamp Set and we have a few more of her creations coming your way SOON.  And Shawna?  Perhaps you’ll be seeing some things from her this year!  :)

Butterflies!  I spent a good bit of time with the fabulous Angie and Greg in the Concord & 9th booth, they even tried out my inks!  I left a few pads with them and when I came back the next day, they made beauti-ous-ness with the Party Dress ink pad!  Loooove!

Lastly…So Suzy.  Gosh, I love this lady, she’s so fun and bubbly and energetic!  We recorded two podcasts (airing week of February 8) and she even tried my inks…isn’t she too funny?

In the upcoming podcasts, we’ll talk about my journey and other fun stuff…and in the second podcast you’ll hear from our Director of Branding (who is also a Suzi!).  Can’t wait to share!

With that, I’ll share a few more photos with you tomorrow…have a great day, my friend!
