CHA-Summer 2012 Day 3
Here is another of my favorite Maya Road summer release products… FABRIC TAPE! Their new Fabric Tape comes in Blossom Pink, Barn Red, Sun Yellow, Leaf Green, Ocean Blue, Coal Black, Country Rose and Floral Garden. The tag the samples are attached to is one of the new Maya Road Wood Shipping Tags. They come in 4 styles & 8 pieces that range from 2″ to 3″.
One of the projects in the Maya Road booth I could not keep my eyes off of was this canvas created by Dina Wakley. She used Maya Mist mixed with gesso, Natural Wood Buttons and Vintage Wood Birds. I LOVE Dina’s work. She is such a sweet, talented and very goofy kinda gal. She makes me laugh and I’m so glad I get to see her in October, at Artistic Journey.
And this pincushion created by Laura Vigliarolo really caught my vintage loving eyes. I really tried to figure out a way to get this home without her missing it but she kept a close eye on me.
On the last day of the show everyone in the booth gets a turn at walking the floor to check out all the new items. I hurried to straight over to the Tim Holtz booth to see his amazing bottle brush trees Mario had been teasing everyone with, with all his BTS posts. They did not disappoint. Talk about gorgeous dyed with Tim’s Distress Inks.
I also had to spend some time in Jenni Bowlin’s booth. You all know how I LOVE everything she designs and looking at all the antique finds she uses to display her product is so fun. She certainly has an eye for all things vintage.
Once I got back to the booth, the show was soon to be over. It is amazing once they announce the show is over workers instantly open the dock doors, forklifts start coming in bringing crates and pallets to the manufacturers and booth tear downs begin.
We tore the booth down in record time. It was quite impressive and we even noticed that David loves Maya Road so much he sweats heart shapes on his shirt.
After tear down we went back to the hotel to freshen up then had an awesome dinner at P.F. Chang’s. To top off our dinner we all shared their fabulous The Great Wall of Chocolate Cake. This cake is the most amazing desert. It’s six rich layers of frosted chocolate cake topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips, served with fresh berries and raspberry sauce.
Then we all waddled back to the car and headed to the hotel for a night of great sleep knowing we did not have to get up early in the morning. We could sleep in and had a day planned to spend at Navy Pier. I’ll tell you all about this tomorrow.
