Home From CHA
We are home from CHA and we are so excited for all the new things to begin to arrive. There were so many new and exciting things that its hard to remember it all. We noticed that the colors that were being used are so different this year, purples, teals, deep oranges, reds, olive greens, and of course there were the soft pastels. The big flowers are all over papers, as well as the birds of every style. The kids themes have gone toward the robots, and very cutsy with great colors too. There were a lot of companies that had come out with their own sprays, and we were very impressed with the one from Maya Road. It was vibrant in color and it dried so fast. We ordered some to play with and test, and if it's everything we think it is, then we will start to carry it in the store. The new Sizzix dies are great and those should be shipping in the next week or so and then we will get them listed and up for sale. The rest of the orders will start to trickle in with in the next couple of weeks and we will be making a ton of new kits and getting them listed as well. We did stop to play a little bit and did a few of the make and takes, which are always fun and gets you anxiouse to get home and play again with things you found new and exciting uses for. We will of course be getting started on our videos, for techniques and how to's. So all in all we had a great trip, our minds were boggled, and we really look forward to bringing all the new things to you when they arrive.
