CHA-Summer 2012 Day 3

Jul 22, 2012

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.
