Another Fun Day

Its just gone 1.00 in the morning and i am still buzzing from the fabulous day we have had today,meeting new people and finding some fab new and unusual products that i know my ladies and gents will just love.

Yesterday i met a fab ladie called Misty and i had to go and ask if i could take a few pics of her Junque Journal which she had made using scraps and envelopes,music sheets etc and heres a pic of Misty and her journal The papers and embellishments are by K & Co and we will definately be having some

Now the next collage is of some friendly plastic samples made by a Jana Ewy on the Amaco stand.She shared some wonderful tips and techniques with me and i cant wait to share them with you when i get back.The Jewellery and book covers were just amazing.

Not far from Jana we met two more ladies who inspired us no end with their creativity and knowledge here is another collaged photo of what they were making and wow this stuff is amazing but its a surprise and i will tell you more about it when it arrives here in the UK.

We found some more interesting things but i am not going to put everything up or you will have nothing to look forward to when we get back to the shop and also at the shows.

Finally we went and had a natter and some fun with the girls at Spellbinders.The new dies are just wonderful and the girls are so creative with them they are always coming up with fabulous ideas.Heres two fun photoes to finish off tonights entry of Gordon and i on the Spellbinders stand

Well after two gruelling but interesting days we have finally looked at all of the trade show and placed our many orders.Tomorrow we are having an exploring day but not quite sure what we will do yet.I would like to go Whale watching but Gordon wants to go to San Diago Zoo so depending on the weather and what time we get up anything is possible.

I will try and post tomorrow and tell you what we eventually decided to do then.

Hi From Anaheim

Well happy new year and here we are in Anaheim at the CHA trade show to see all the new goodies that are coming our way in the papercraft world.

This was part of my walk to the CHA yesterday morning and it really made a change from the weather at home.

These are the 24 new lites and brights alcohol inks from Ranger plus a pen to let you paint with them too.I cant wait to play with these.

These were a few samples on the ranger stand that caucht my eye, Grungeboard and other inksential items done Tim style of coarse.

And heres the bigger picture showing some of the other things on the sample board.

We have found some interesting new items today to go with things we already sell and i think our customers are going to love them but we are going to keep them all a surprise until they arrive at the shop sometime next month hopefully.
Tomorrow we are going to see our friends at Spellbinders and have a good natter with them as they were a little busy today as you can imagine.
See you tomorrow with more pics and gossip from Anaheim.
Smiles Rob and Gordon
