News - Look For Me At Creativation!
The new year is starting out with major excitement for me. On Jan. 21 - 23 I will be competing for the title of Craft Innovator of the Year at Creativation. Formerly called CHA, the convention has moved from its usual spot at the Anaheim convention center, to Phoenix, Arizona and promises many new events including "The Ultimate Pitch”. Twenty-five “craft innovators” were chosen and provided with space at the convention. Our job is to promote a product or idea that will benefit crafters. On the last day of the show five will get the opportunity to pitch their product/idea to the show judges. The Innovator of the Year will be chosen and awarded $10,000. I’ve been preparing for weeks and don’t know what more I can stuff in my car. I'm driving to Phoenix tomorrow morning. I’ll try to post photos to my Facebook page during the three days of the show. If you are attending, please visit me at booth #833. I’ll be easy to spot. Just look for the big inflatable light bulb.
