Getting my artsy photography on at #CHAShow

New Tulip® Sparkle paints

For the past 8 days, I’ve been away at the Craft and Hobby Association doing social media for iLoveToCreate! The week involved setting up, working the booth (taking photos, doing interviews, tweeting, etc.), and then tearing down the booth. I’m finally home and all the days feel like one big blur! I love going to CHA cause I get to meet so many cool people and all my online friends as well as get to see the excitement people have creating with iLoveToCreate products and other crafts! I swear, one of my favorite moments was watching a little boy jump up and down upon being handed a hobby kit by the booth next to us. The smile on his face and the excitement that he had in his heart is why I love this industry so much. In the end, that’s what it is supposed to be about!

Outside and inside our booth, I was drawn to the abounding artfulness in the booths and pretty products (like the new Tulip® Fashion Glitter paints and transfer sheet project above)! Many of which were photo worthing, so I thought I’d share them with you! These are some of the projects and colorful creations that made me drool!
