We are here… in Anaheim… and the crew is actually passed out as I type. We’ve checked in, and we are ready to hit the ground running bright and early tomorrow! We have already met some amazing people and we can’t wait to get a closer look at their products. *Name Drop Alert!* I rubbed elbows with the amazingly nice Dee Gruenig as she ate a taco… Thanks Dee!!!
It’s also our one year anniversary at Craft Critique! I started this blog on a whim at about 2AM last January with THIS post… since then we have grown beyond my wildest expectations! To be honest, all I wanted to do was share with my crafty friends about the products I already had in my craft room, have a reason to attend the next CHA, and maybe get some free stuff along the way. Now we have a large team of wonderful and talented reporters… vendors are seeking us out for product testing… we are bringing an even larger team of new specialty reporters very soon (stay tuned)…we have a new look in the works… and some very BIG ideas… it’s all quite exciting!
To celebrate we would like to share the love. CHA is filled with fun crafty goodies; and frankly, it’s too much for just one person to use themselves… so we are putting together at least TWO fabulous goody boxes filled with miscellaneous CHA goodness!
There are two ways to win a box… ONE: send us YOUR review from the floor! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include pictures (as attachments) and blurbs about your favorite new crafty goods. Not only may we publish your article… but we will draw one name randomly from all the entries. The winner will receive a collection of precious freebies given only to Press!
The SECOND way to win a goody box is by leaving a comment on any Craft Critique post relating to CHA between yesterday and the 16th of February. You will get a DOUBLE entry into the giveaway if you leave a post on YOUR blog linking to Craft Critique’s CHA coverage… just let us know in the comments. Help us get the word out about Craft Critique! The more readers and exposure we get, the more opportunities we will receive to share the newest product information with you!
And a big hug to all of you who read everyday, subscribe and link out to us on YOUR blogs. We truly appreciate every single one of you!
