CHA, Here We Come: Passion and Vision

In just a couple of days, my amazing colleagues (and friends), Paige and Nancy will be joining me for a wonderful journey to the center of the earth...better known as the Craft and Hobby Association's Winter Trade Show.

CHA is a great time for many reasons - not the least of which is its main purpose - to see and feel all the new products that are available to the craft world so we can choose what we'll be including in our future kits

It's also a great chance to connect with others in our industry - artists, designers, and other retailers.

For both those reasons, I'm REALLY excited about next week. There's so much inspiration available in the form of media, texture, color, design, and even in displays. And for me, being around inspired people is very uplifting. Not because they're 'celebrities', but because I love to understand the heart and soul of passion and vision - whether regarding businesses that are about being of service, or creating art, since I cherish both.

My goal is to use my time at CHA to grow in my ability to infuse our kits, our site and our community with passion and vision, about ourselves, scrapbooking and the world around us.

Here are a few things (and I mean JUST a few...too many to share right this second) we've already seen online that we're excited about...








More to share soon, including pics and our reports from CHA, hilarious photos of what you know will be some crazy adventures, and the sneak of Scrapbooking from the Inside Out's February kit...stay tuned!

Let's see if you've been out there scouting sneaks...if you can identify the 4 lines or items above by manufacturer and line or item name, please comment with your response. The first person to guess all 4 correctly will win a mini-kit from Inside Out! Have fun...
