What I love about being a General Crafts Reporter for Craft Critique (a.k.a. the ultimate source for all things crafty!) is giving fellow crafters sneak peaks about the craft industry.
Please check into Craft Critique all this week and next for everything that is going on Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) Winter Trade Show in Chicago! CHA has 2 trade shows a year - one in California(Summer) and one usually in Chicago (Winter). This is where stores like Craft Fancy buy a lot of their uber good scrappy items.
Btw - Craft Critique will be hosting three days of challenges over at http://www.scrapinstyletv.com/ too! If you are not a member yet, please join! We are a fun bunch of SISters that love to craft and are currently a tad bit obsessed with Twilight and RPatz! lol.
*gasp* You don't know who Rpatz is? Please comment with your email and I will Rpatz-edjamacate you. ;)
HUGS all and please check out the goodness that is CC! Nan (and an annoying little puggy called Aine who is being a right MRS. right now. ugh)
