Twice a year the trade has the CHA show in the USA, winter and summer. This is where the BIG players go to show off the new releases for the upcoming crafty seasons.
It's in Chicago in the summer, a lovely city and one I enjoyed visiting as much if not more than New York.
Once it was held in Orlando, but from the show organisers point of view , it did not work, so back to the windy city.
there are many many companies at the show and some keep very tight lipped about their new products.
But if you dig around on the Internet you might find lots of peeks. HERE is one link worth looking at, put the kettle on because you might be looking for a wee while.
Dull and rain is forecast, not what most folks would call summer is it?
Only a few weeks until the wedding, time is flying by.
I still have not got the shoes and bag , don't forget the hat but its a busy time here.
Next week we go to Glasgow for Debbie's graduation,
that will be an overnight stay in the middle of the week.
Not much time either side to do much at all. But the Christmas stock is starting to arrive in store, the new baby fairies are doing well.
Looks like most of those will be sold out while we get re stock made at the factory.
There are a few magazine feature's hitting us with deadlines.
I am waiting to see what new Christmas stamps Sugar Nellie will be treating you too this season.
Funkykits is watching out for new rubber ranges to add to the store, especially Krista's new stamps.
Low stock on a lot of lines allows for a good tidy up of whats on the racks.
Spellbinder dies are going to be popular again this season but I have been working with other dies and have made some lovely cards for the new classes in Oldmeldrum, I might even share with you some time.
That's all for today folks, hope your Sunday is peaceful, we will be going to the
Strawberry Tea at Church while the boys go to a stock judging on a near by farm.
What do you have to Share On Sunday?
