CHA Summer 2013 | Hot Pick: Pink Paislee

This time around I’m doing something a bit different with the CHA Hot Pick list. Instead of giving the ten Hot Picks to my readers in one huge overwhelming chunk, I’m going to give you one pick per article for each of the ten picks. At the end, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference of all ten. This will allow me to bring you more information about each of the Hot Picks, and also bring them to you faster!

To see all the hot picks posted so far, visit this link.

So here, in no particular order, is the next hot pick for CHA Summer 2013 (aka Create-n-Connect)…

The company’s previous style was heavily vintage, but their new look is more modern and graphic.

Up first is “Hey Kid,” a bright happy collection full of hip elements like moustaches, glasses, and chevrons:

CHA Summer 2013 | Twelve Timbers

At each show, there is usually one neat surprise that you don’t expect to see that really gets you thinking about some great creative projects. For me, at the Create-n-Connect show in Las Vegas, that booth was Twelve Timbers.

Twelve Timbers was a new exhibitor at the show who specializes in wood wall art. Their pre-finished pieces made me want to redecorate every wall of my house!
