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…
