You try to fit it all in...naturally you manage to leave something or someone out that was beeeeeeyond fabulous...
Did I mention the glorious LINDA CAIN
who had samples in the Ranger booth using their new Inkssentials Manilla tags
if you want to see and read more about CHA from another perspective go to Lindas blog. She took amazing close-up pictures with wonderful narrative. Did I mention she's glorious.....OH MY SHE SURE IS. ! Between her work and Wendy Vecchi's work it's SSO....serious sensory overload.
Thanks also to friends Debbie and Patti, two of the "Rangerettes" as I call them, for all they do to make life easier in the booth and at the Ranger CHA classes. BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE...louder clapping please !
Now..on to what some friends are doing..."AVENUE A", synonymous with the yummy Angela Bannatyne - oh she of beading brilliance - ....has been featured in ...drum roll....
the also yummy Margot Potters new book
here was something else I spotted at the show and was mesmerized by
I understand these will be (or may now be, don't know...) available from Purple Cows....you know them..the trimmer people..
A 'Wire Winder'..like a jig....so cool...wish I knew more about it...just loved it. You can make terrific embellishments to put on cards, in scrapbooks or even in jewelry.
It was soooooo impressive. It is manufactured by DN Craft Corp in Korea.
then...they had a 'Ball Brayer'....you roll it in an ink pad and you can literally write with it or scribble patterns.
as always...Prima has THE most delicious trims
Unibind is also a favorite of mine. I have had one for years. You can make and bind your own gorgeous books. Their Photobook Creator comes with the machine, 1 photobook with window on the front cover, 25 sheets of inkjet paper and a software disk.
well...that's a pretty good wrap up....
to all my CHA friends that I got to see (and even those I didn't) ...Love you all and can't thank you enough for all your support.
it's because of people like you that crafts stay alive and flourishing !
