cha: make it take it madness


Teaching make-it-take-its in the Soft Flex Company booth
I went to the Craft and Hobby Association Conference and Trade Show in Los Angeles last weekend to work in Soft Flex Company's booth.  While there I could not help but take in all the awesomeness that is CHA. It was my first time there and my coworkers thought my enthusiasm was pretty cute.  It was an exciting place to be afterall, beautiful booths inspiring you with new products, new techniques, over the top artful ideas that really stretch your imagination, live demos and make-it-take-its - wowza! I was totally caught up in madness of it all.  So what did I make?  So many things!

Made wire wrapped key chains at the Soft Flex Company booth introducing our new Soft Flex Craft Wire line.
Decorated a small storage container at the Everything Mary booth.
Learned how to create this charming flower clip at the Blumenthal Lansing booth.
Made a necklace at the Plaid booth where they introduced their new geode pendants.
Learned leather stamping at the GCD Studios booth.
Learned how to solder this filigree ring at the Simply Swank booth. 
Embossed plain metal Vintaj pendants at the Sizzix booth.
Super cool long necklace made at the Tim Holtz booth.
Learned to needle felt this sweet little flower at the Back to Back Fiber Products booth.
Made this sweet, no sew folio at the I Love to Create booth.

Decorated a plain canvas apron with fabric markers at the I Love to Create booth.
Made my first envelope book with some spray paints and glitters at the Hampton Art booth
Here is the side of the book  The envelopes create little pockets to store keepsakes.
Lastly, I tried some new glitter paint and stencils at the Plaid booth. My face says it all, I was high on crafts!
