I’m excited to announce the winner of my Season’s Givings blog hop!  The event was a wonderful experience with so many inspirational projects shared on all the blogs participating.  Once again, thank you so much for your support as readers of my blog and celebrating our love for everything crafty!

The lucky winner is….


Congratulations Carol!  I will email you to get in touch.

This announcement was somewhat delayed and I apologize.  After Christmas, we went away for a family holiday in Phoenix, Arizona, and then a few days after we returned home, I was flying to Anaheim, California, with my Canadian Scrapbooker magazine team to attend the Craft & Hobby Association tradeshow (CHA).

My job for the tradeshow is so much FUN…I am the Social Media Correspondent for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, which means I talk to lots of companies about new products and releases.  I will be blogging about all of this for the next week over at the Canadian Scrapbooker website.  So pop on over there to find out about all the fantastic and inspirational goodies that are new for 2015!

@kellycreates #cha #california I’m so lucky to be part of this amazing team at Canadian Scrapbooker magazine! We manage to squeeze in a little fun…and a little food!@kellycreates #chashowA bakery food truck that sells cream puffs?? Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

On our day of arrival, we went to the California Science Museum and one of the incredible highlights there was seeing the real life space shuttle Endeavour!  WOW!

I was also VERY excited about meeting some of my Creative Team with Bazzill Basics…both Kim Jeffress and Gail Lindner flew all the way from Australia for the first time to work at the show.

Joey Otlo (far left) is such a sweetheart and has been with the Bazzill brand FOREVER.  She is amazing!  I wish I had a pic of the entire team.  Oh well, maybe next year!

I also had a few shifts doing demos at the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L booth…more fun!  We were featuring Donna Salazar’s new releases with the company…some really exciting products that you will love!  Make sure you follow the Crafty Power blog to find out what’s new.

@kellycreates #cha2015Finally, I was THRILLED to see my ‘tablescape’ designs on display at the Brother booth for the ScanNCut machine.  Brother asked me to make a tablecloth and décor for a celebration theme, so I decided to design a Spring Garden Party vignette. I made the tablecloth using Kelly Panacci’s NEW fabric released through Riley Blake Designs Inc.

Now I am back home and ready to get crafty! This week, I am filming more webisodes for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine…my job is the BEST!

Happy Crafting!

    Thanks for sharing photos of all the fun from CHA. Those cream puffs look amazing and almost as big as the space shuttle 🙂 You have the good fortune to work with such creative and nice people, a good fit as you are the same.

    Congratulations to the winner! And thanks for all you’ve shared from CHA! I had a blast checking out your pictures (and I’m always amazed when people take the time to photograph their yummy food – I just always want to dig right in!!!) Sounds like you’ve enjoyed some really nice weather this past month – well deserved if you live in wilds of Canada!
