CHA Summer 2013 | American Crafts

At CHA’s Create-n-Connect show in Las Vegas,  American Crafts introduced several new lines including new ones from Amy Tangerine and Elizabeth Kartchner called “Cut & Paste” and “Polka Dot Party”, respectively.

The “Cut & Paste” line from Amy Tangerine impressed me with new embroidery stencil kit designs – Hello (with fun shapes) and Right Now (with lowercase and uppercase alpha).

CHA Winter 2013: Crafts for Kids

I’m happy to report that I saw a number of new and innovative craft products and kits at the CHA Winter 2013 show, geared specifically for the younger crowd.  The last time I went to CHA I was not a mom, so it was interesting seeing the new product offerings at the show this time from a different perspective.  I am always on the lookout for something fun to do with my toddler, and have a number of these items on my wish list now.

Do-A-Dot Art offers markers in the form of a dauber that look so easy and fun for kids to use.  I have seen these before at my local teacher’s store but was happy to learn more about them.  They have ink in them, not paint, so they will not get clogged up or dried out like a paint dabber.  They also have a felt tip applicator with a valve that does not allow the ink to flow unless the kids are pressing down, so the mess is kept to a minimum if the young artist gets a little wild.  I especially loved the glitter set and the coordinating coloring books.
