GreetingsFarm Card and CHA Preparations

These are busy times in the world of craft.
Twice a year the Craft and Hobby Association hold a Trade Show featuring everything crafty.
It's kinda like a mecca of craft.
This big event is super busy for me and all the great folks over at Craft Critique.
We go on the hunt for great products for a week straight and report back all the details.
It's a rough job that I certainly don't mind doing.

After the Trade Show will be the Craft Super Show which is open to the public.  YAY!
There you can take a workshop, do make and takes or just get shopping.
If you are in the Chicagoland area and love crafty deals, I would highly recommend it.
The Craft Super Show runs from Friday, July 30th thru Saturday, July 31st.

The best part about CHA is that I will get to see all my crafty friends from far and wide.
And I will get to meet people that I only know online.

I quickly created this cute little card with a Greeting Farm stamp that Jessica gave me at CHA Winter, 6 months ago.

I used all October Afternoon patterned paper and that cute little girl is colored with Copic Markers.
The flower is from Sassafras.

I am sure I will have tons to share after next week.
To stay up to date on everything happening at CHA this week, stay tuned to Craft Critique.
You can also follow me on Twitter or my updates will also be on Facebook.

Off to the big show...

Hi, I'm michelle and this is not an auto comment. They're annoying and impersonal. Besides, I like to check out websites and bookmark what I like for my (very little) downtime.

Being a blessed recipient of my sister in law's awesome hand-crafted gifts, I'm naturally drawn to these kinds of blogs :)

Man, all your pictures from the Trade Show look so awesome. They're so cute, I want to eat everything.
And I must agree with metrochic--I'd LOVE Copic or Prismacolor markers. The sets are expensive!
Love the stamp, it's adorable.
