It’s been a month since the end of the Craft and Hobby Association’s winter show in Anaheim, and I’m finally coming up for a big breath of air. This was the 3rd year I exhibited in the License & Design section of the show, the 2nd with my surface art on display. Once again, Jen Goode and I shared our booth space.
We set up the booth on Friday. We shaved off a full day from last year’s set up time, and were able to see several places we can streamline the process for our next show. Here’s Jen with her giant hand‐painted smiley ice cream and a spotlight in her eyes as we were hanging art on the walls.
And a shot of the finished booth space on opening morning. At least my fantastic sling accessory matched my pants. (I took an icy fall a few days before I flew in.)
As usual, it was great to be at the show surrounded by patterns and colors and embellishments at every turn, and by friends I only see twice a year at trade shows. My roomies and I enjoyed every moment, and even had some time to enjoy some down time after the show closed.
Since I wasn’t able to leave the booth much, I’d love to hear what you thought was new and exciting at CHA Winter!
Until next time…
