WOW! That is all I can say to describe this year’s winter CHA show. Well I can say a little bit more . I can’t believe that it is over. This time last week we were setting up, lol. It was an awesome show, and thanks to everyone that was able to attend and stop by the Plaid booth. The winter CHA show was held in Anaheim, CA, at the Anaheim Convention Center. Everyone from Plaid stayed just steps away from the convention center at, the Anaheim Marriott. This definitely made it so nice and easy to get to and from the convention. We all were very busy while at the show. Our booth was in a prime location, and very easy to locate. No doubt that was in large part to the white carpet we had inside our booth. We had three make it take it sections at our booth. One was with Cathie and Steve, where they made crafts using Mod Podge. Another station had Ring Bling craft projects, and Candie Cooper helped with that. Our third section was a Martha make it take it, held by Marianne. We had all types of visitors to our booth, including some influential craft bloggers. They even had the time to stop and pose for some pics, wearing Mod Podge t-shirts. While at the show, Plaid was very happy to award two designers the New Horizon Award. This years winners were, Marisa Pawelko, and Jen Cushman. Each won $1500. Plaid not only gave awards out, but we won some too. Plaid’s President, Mr. Mike McCooey, received the CHA Lifetime Achievement Award. We are all so proud of him. To top off this great show, I was also able to get some great video interviews with some very well known craft bloggers at the show. Be on the look out to see these videos next week. If I do say so myself the winter CHA show was a success, and I definitely can’t wait until the summer show later this year. To see even more pictures of our booth check out our album on Facebook, or our CHA Pinterest board.
