Make Pretty Stuff

This sign says it all! I had so much fun this past weekend at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show 2014 at the Anaheim convention center this past weekend.  I must warn you, that I look like a complete Geek in these photos (most of them I posted on Instagram).  At the same time, being goofy and meeting these lovely ladies were the highlight of my weekend. Being a Blogger you “e-meet” so many fellow Bloggers.  If you’re lucky, you get to meet some in person. I did just that and had a fantastic time.

On Saturday, I spent most of my time with (left to right) Barbara from Chase the Star, Loren from Pandora’s Craft Box, {Me}, and Monika from Life With Lovebugs. We were at the Duck Brand booth posing in front of the Duck Bus they had.  Inside was an amazing display of creative Duck tape creations.

Monika, Loren, and I also stopped to pose at the Camelot Fabric chalkboard photo booth.  They have amazing patterns of fabric including adhesive felt and adhesive fabric! Did you know that the chalkboard behind us in this photo is fabric???  What??? Amazing! Do you like my felt glasses?

This is me being extremely excited to meet Jaderbomb! Oh my! She was the sweetest gal ever and has the most charismatic and genuine personality.

The next morning on Sunday I was invited to the Duck Brand breakfast which was so much fun. I made this pretty Duck tape bracelet. I love it so much, I think I may post a tutorial on it soon.

I also met up with Barbara again as well as my friend Jill from Popsicle Blog. This is us posing at the Elmer’s booth.

Jill had a fun idea and had me pose to look like I was modeling with these extremely gorgeous ladies from the Lion booth.

Throughout the day (besides posing for pictures), I also did some fun make and takes.  Here are some of the things I made.

I would definitely go back next year.  I was also invited to an exclusive FaveCrafts Networking event that was fantastic! I met several more Bloggers and was able to have one on one time with many brands that I would love to work with. I connected with some amazing Bloggers and brands and can’t wait until next year already!
