Day 2 of CHA

Sorry, no photos today. I have hundreds to sort through and because we were out late with Printworks, JudiKins, Inspired Crafts and our friends from Germany and Switzerland I haven't had time to sort them all out. And tonight is the big CHA party in Disneyland.

We saw the most amazing craft event yesterday. It was called Art Unscripted and hosted by Carol Duvall. I have never seen Carol Duvall in action as a host before and I must say I was most impressed. The event included 12 celebrities from the crafting world including Judi Watanabe, MaryJo McGraw, Crafty Chica, Michael Strong, Sarah Hodsdon, Cherryl Greene (TV Weekly) and several other people who's names escape me right now. They were split into 4 teams of 3 and the first member of each team went up on stage and was given a bag of materials and a wooden mannequin with 10 minutes to decorate it. At the end of the 10 minutes the next team member took over for their 10 minutes and a new back of materials, followed by the third and final member of the team.

All team were picked at random and they had no idea of the materials they would get to use until they got up on the stage. Things started very calmly until it got to the 2nd team member, then competition hotted up and things got very chaotic. It was hilariously funny as some teams try to sabotage the others supplies or even assist each other. I took lots of photos of the event and the finished articles and will post them as soon as I can.

Did I mention that JudiKins have brought out a new product for use with the Patera, DG3. This is a liquid like Diamond Glaze but it remains completely clear and very hard so is ideal for jewellery.

We also saw the Big Cropodile that is a big long reach version of the original. We will let you know as soon as stock arrives. We love the new 7Gypsies carousels. The original for ATCs and now there is one for photos and another one for unmounted stamps. Becky Nunn has some great new jewellery pieces for photos. Bind It All has some new acrylic covers and canvas board covers as well as a corner rounder that works on chipboard and acrylic.

Time to go. I'll be back tomorrow.
