Snapshots from CHA Mega Show 2015

The lights are turned out and the booths all disassembled. Suitcases have been packed and flights boarded for home….the CHA Mega Show 2015 has passed into history.

Anaheim Convention CenterApparently, Anaheim didn’t get the memo that California is a desert. It was grey and drizzling rain for the majority of the days of the show, welcome weather for local residents but not for show attendees.

We’ve got some summer reading, some CHA news, and some news about your favorite designers this week on noteworthy!

CHA Attendees: The Craft & Hobby Association is warning attendees about two scams targeting convention attendees.

One is a supposed online show directory from Construct Data Verlag AG of Austria, Commercial Online Manuals S de RL de CV of Mexico and similar companies that is targeting exhibitors. Signing and returning the form for an entry in the online directory actually enters companies into an expensive three year contract that automatically renews.

The second scam is that several companies have been approaching CHA attendees offering to book hotel rooms at CHA at low rates, and then have not booked rooms and kept deposits that were placed with them. Par Avion is the only travel vendor associated with CHA that can book rooms at official CHA convention rates.

Please visit the CHA website for more information on what to do if you suspect your company has been targeted by one of these scams. Continue Reading →

Now halfway through March, both Easter and St. Patrick’s Day holiday, as well as floral, spring, rainy day, and other seasonal subjects are popping up on blogs everywhere. Inspiration is plentiful, and lots of exciting things are going on.

The Pink Paislee blog is always full of inspiration, what I really enjoyed this week is the gold, cream, and green “color crush” series they have had this week. This card and decorated tin by design team member Jess Mutty really stood out for me. Her use of a wide mix of products by Pink Paislee as well as the color and metallic mediums she used to accent her project really caught my eye. Continue Reading →
