i love to create
I am getting so excited about the Craft and Hobby Association Show starting this weekend in Anaheim, California! I will be walking the show to see what is new in the world of craft products, meeting up with crafty superstars, and even participating in a cool new event — the iLoveToCreate® Bloggers’ Lounge! The team at iLTC has been planning this event for over three months and now I can finally share the news with you!

The Bloggers’ Lounge will be the coolest spot at the show — I will be hanging out and crafting up a fun badge make and take with some of the hottest bloggers in the craft and DIY industry! The Bloggers’ Lounge will also be a great place to score some crafty refreshments and recharge phones and tech gadgets.

The CHA Show is not open to the public, but is a trade show for the Craft and Hobby industry – members of CHA attend every January to showcase all the newest goodies in crafting. If you’re not a CHA member, don’t worry — Rhonda and I will be reporting about all our finds so you can be at the cutting edge of finding out what is new in craft (check out last year’s post). In addition, iLoveToCreate will be sharing regular updates on their blog, Facebook page, Twitter, and Youtube pages throughout the show so you can stay connected even if you’re not at the show.
