As you know, because I've mentioned it like 50 million times, I had a great time at CHA! …..You've seen the ridiculous grin I'm sporting in all of my "celeb encounter" photos (here).
As my first CHA, the show wasn't always easy. Occasionally I felt like an outsider. I was wearing a publisher badge rather than a retailer (buyer) badge, and as far as publishers go, well, I ain't exactly Creating Keepsakes (yet)!
But then I had occasion to interact with companies like Maya Road, Sassafrass Lass, Three Bugs in a Rug, LilyBee and a select few others who could not possibly have been more welcoming!
Can you believe that, prior to the show, someone from Maya Road contacted us to THANK us for showing all of you their sneak peeks here at PaperCrafter's Corner? Yep! There's nothing quite like a nice "thank you." Then, when I arrived at their booth & introduced myself, they welcome me as if I were important to them. I was given a personal tour of some of their new products, offered a catalog, and THANKED for coming by.
It may not sound like much, but believe me, it was. And now get this: Maya Road would like to thank YOU for your support too! One of YOU will win the below goodie bag of new Maya Road products…. check it out…
The prize pack contains: 1 pack of crystal star pins, 1 baby singleton stamp, 1 laundry day stamp, 1 classic canvas label album, gingham fabric blossoms, and velvet jewel blossoms. A package worth $20! All just to say thank you. How rare is that?
Enter to win!
You can check out the new Maya Road CHA-S 2010 catalog here. Meanwhile, to enter to win the prize package, simply tell us below the name of the store where YOU find your favorite Maya Road goodies: Tell us the name & state of your favorite local scrapbook store, or the name of your favorite craft retailer or e-tailer. (Not sure were to find Maya Road? Use their store locator found on their site. In my experience, manufacturer online retail location lists are rarely 100% up to date, but they can be a good place to start.)
