Sizzix has released a wonderful new caddy designed to hook to the side of your Big Shot machine. We found used it in our hotel room for the essentials!

As always, Penny Black has so many classy samples in their booth. Here is one of them.

More samples with Photo Play paper. I really hope I ordered this line I love the colors!
We ran into this lovable monster while in Disneyland.

CHA recap

It has been a busy 2016 so far, I have been in California for 10 days for the CHA Mega trade show. As always it was a busy show with lots to see and do (think 14 hour days). Normally, I blog from the show however the wifi in our hotel was absolute crap to put it mildly even after we were upgraded to the premium wifi. So better late than never here is my quick recap of the show. Crafty Capers is taking preorders for many of the items we saw on the show floor so contact us if there is something you would like!

Linda and I took a great class with John at Imagine Crafts. Watch for a special announcement about John soon!

An interesting owl fold card done with a Sizzix die.

Linda does not work unless she has coffee served at the Spellbinder booth!

A small sampling of some of Dyan Reaveley's new paints
Our annual "look how much stuff we have to pack" photo. Stuffed it into 2 suitcases with a tiny bit of room to spare.

Linda's new ride embellished by Crystal Ninja. This car is in the Guinness Book of World records.
I will be posting more photos as I get them organized!
