Little Pink Ladybug Bow Making System Review

Little Pink Ladybug: Brilliant Bowmaker – Ultimate Kit Review and Giveaway

Everything CreatedI have a confession – I am a ribbon addict. I love to collect ribbon and I love to acquire ribbon. In my craft room I have a clear storage box that is full of random lengths, textures and designs of ribbon. If I am in the store and I happen to see a ribbon that catches my eyes, it is a safe assumption that a couple of yards will be added to my collection.

Ribbon Assortment 1The origination of the ribbon collection are a bit murky, but if I had to guess it was due to my love of scrapbooking and gift wrapping.

The thing that I love the most about crafting is the constant use of different textures and mediums – ribbon included. There is no place that this fact than at the annual Craft and Hobby Mega Show, and the various vendors displaying their own take on creativity.

The other time that it is widely accepted is Halloween. For one day a year a person can become a different person for one night. Many times this includes a mask or clothing, but there is another way.

When I attended the Craft and Hobby Mega Show in Anaheim I came across Ruby Red Face & Body Paint and knew that this was an additional tool for self-expression. Continue reading

Craft and Hobby Mega Show 2016 Wrap-Up

2016 Craft and Hobby Mega Show Wrap-Up!

CHA IntroI had a dream come true recently, I got to attend the annual Craft and Hobby Mega Show at the Anaheim Convention Center. I have been wanting, wishing and hoping that I would be able to attend this annual gathering of craft companies, craft stores, retailers and media.

I went into this fairly blind in that I was not sure what to expect. I downloaded the application on my phone and tried to map out a plan – that did not work. I did have a couple of priorities including seeing a couple of booths and meeting a couple important VIP’s. Other than that initial plan, I was able to just cruise around.
