Morning Everyone! (Well I say morning, it's my morning, I don't know what time you'l be reading this back home, but i'm over in Anaheim in California so we're 8 hours behind you!!)
I've flown over for the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association)'s annual Winter Trade Show, and I just wanted to share some behind the scenes pics with you before the show starts this saturday!
I went into the convention center today to check on our booth (that's what they call the 'stands' over here!) and the good news is our booth was there... but there's not much to see at the minute!
Thats because back in our warehouse it's all stations go putting the last minute finishing touches to everything! We're really lucky in that where the convention center is, is literally only 15 minutes from our US office! So the guys back here are able to construct the whole stand in our warehouse, check everything is looking OK, and then dissemble it piece by piece, move it to the convention center, and then re-build it over on the show floor!
A really big push for us at the show is our Spectrum Noir pen range. Not only do we have a large portion of the booth dedicated to it, but we have Make & Take's going on, and classes running throughout the show with our director of education - Jennie Black.
We'll also be showing stamps from all of our most popular ranges that i'm sure you'll all recognise!
And we're also launching our Embosssalicious Embossing Folders here in America at the show. We're showcasing the designs which you'll all recognise that launched last year in the UK, and we're also previewing the new designs which we've now completed the design stages for, and which will be available worldwide from March this year!
So as you can see it's all stations go!! I'm here in the office getting the finishing touches put to our booth, then i've got a busy few days ahead! I'll report back whenever I get chance!!!
