8:45 am- woke up to rain today. But it's still pretty nice. Getting ready for the CHA buyer hours (the buyer hours go from 9-11)
11am- Charity Wings in the house!
11:37- Ready for the rest of our new products? Here it is! We're releasing three new Gelatos packs: Bali, Manhattan and Macaron. You may have also noticed that we're launching these in a new clear barrel. i LOVE how sophisticated it looks now:)
And one of my personal favorites, three new 15ct. sets- Brights, Pastels, and Metallics.
Ever wanted fabulous, metallic paste that can be used in mixed media? Now we've got it! The Texture Luxe is available in Silver, Gold and Pearl. The Pearl looks amaaaazing when tinted with Gelatos.
Texture Gems- these are liners that are great for embellishing. The three count comes in a set of Gold, Silver and Pearl, and the single count is available in Ice (this one is a clear liner).
We're also launching two sets of Mixed Media Stencils. These are great for mixed media. Once you've used them a couple of times, use the stencil as a background embellishment!
Texture Cards! We've been receiving great responses to this product! They basically look like credit cards with a jagged pattern on the end. Scrap it through any of our mediums to get a perfect finish.
12:08PM-Visited Design Team member, Rita Barakat at the Designers in Action showcase. This is basically a place where top designers create crafts, and showcase different techniques that they like to use.
Loved her display area too!! Isn't it gorgeous?
2:02pm- Lunch!! Here's why I love eating at trade show lunch areas- you bump into the people you don't expect to see. Today I saw our fabulous Guest Designer, Tonya Gibbs:)
Here's a couple more pictures of the show- it's hard to believe the carpet wasn't even laid until the day before the show (in fact, it wasn't even done when I left at 5PM the day before!)
6:40pm- Team dinner!
