Last CHA report, since I fly back east tonight. “T” is for Tuesday and time to get making! Here I am getting messy at the ilovetocreate booth–dying silk scarves.
I stained most of my fingers before Pattie was nice enough to show me where the plastic gloves were!
Off to the Provo nook, where Kim was nice enough to teach a group of us how to make yarn flower clips using the Knifty Knitter…but of course I couldn’t resist pulling out a T-shirt scrap (below, from a T-shirt hem) and make a soft green jersey flower for my hair. And then it was off to signing about 80 Generation T book giveaways at the Provo booth!
Then I climbed the stairs of the Provocraft stage for a Generation T T-shirt refashioning demo with scissors and the Yudu all-in-one screenprinting machine. (I just want to pounce on all those delicious-looking cakes behind me!) Then it’s off to sign 70 more book giveaways!
Sonya Nimri took to the Provocraft stage, too. She demonstrated how to make felt barrettes and leather jewelry and coasters using the Cuttlebug machine…I totally want one now. Then she signed giveaway copies of her new book, Beadalicious (which I totally scored!).
Some last wandering and making-and-taking and catching up with my pals Cathie Filian and Steve Piacenza who were at the Plaid booth showing off their forthcoming Hot Glue Gun Helpers tool line. I can’t wait until these are out!
Plaid also showed off some of their new Simply Screen home screenprinting products–check out the totally sweet T-shirt I screened (stay tuned for a scissory refashion of the XL T-shirt in weeks to come!). And lastly, Sonya shows off her totally rockin’ trucker hat that she dyed with the new ilovetocreate graffiti fabric spray and stencils.
Off to dinner with friends and then a red-eye flight back home so I can wake up refreshed (who am I kidding?!) on the east coast!
