Craft & Hobby Association Winter Trade Show - 2011

Postcard from LA -  Having a wonderful time!  Wish you were here!

For those of you who have wondered what it's like at these trade shows, here are some miscellaneous photos for you to enjoy.  You'll see a variety of manufacturers booths where they display their products in the most creative ways to delight and inspire.  There are Make It Take Its where retailers can sit and make a small project to familiarize themselves with new product and tons and tons of projects to feature the latest and greatest ideas, tips and techniques.  You can also take workshops and attend seminars, all designed to help us in our business endeavors.  Enjoy!

This was a great Make It Take It at the Elmer's booth, sponsored by When Creativity Knocks

What's not to love about this line.......

Yummy desserts - no calories and lots of fiber!  Look more closely and you'll see they are made from ribbon!
