CHA + Disneyland = The 2 Week Countdown Has Begun!

Have you been keeping up with all the manufacturer sneaks for the Winter 2011 CHA Show?? I have - and let me tell you I am SOOOO EXCITED!! PLUS - in 2 weeks from today the show opens, and guess what! I'm going to BE THERE!! Eeek!! Last summer I went to Chicago for the Summer CHA Show and I genuinely think it changed my life in a lot of ways. Probably the best part of going to CHA is meeting people in real life that you've gotten to know a bit through blogging for other social media who share in this wonderful passion for paper crafting and design! So, if you are going to be there, let me know! ;) I'd love to meet you!

Today, I thought I'd bring you some of my personal faves of the sneaks I've been seeing out there in blog land recently. Probably my most anticipated new releases are coming from Pink Paislee - talk about covering all the bases - look as all these yummy styles!! The new lines featuring Collage Press Studio and House of Three are A-MAZING! I'm most looking forward to Hometown Summer and Daily Junque. PinkpaisleesneakpeekFrom My Mind's Eye, there is the  "Stella & Rose" Collection. There are 4 lines within this collection and ALL are GORGEOUS! The two I'm most excited to see at the show are:

Stella & Rose :Hazel


Stella & Rose : Hattie


Then there's Studio Calico. My, my, MY!!! There's so much good stuff in their new releases - but here are my personal MUST HAVES:

Oh, and I nearly forgot this lovely looking collection - Happily Lost by Lily Bee - the colors are DIVINE!

Not to mention my FAVORITES from the 2010 Summer SHOW - Sassafras!!! Their sneaks are coming soon it looks like! And then there's The Girls' Paperie!! I CANNOT wait for these either!! I've heard these are to die for!!! So looking forward to it! I'm also dying to see the full reveals from Cosmo CricketOctober Afternoon, Basic Grey and any and all Thickers from American Crafts! I'm guessing the next week is going to be FULL of SUPER fun posts from manufacturers!!

Okay, so I didn't mention Crate Paper or SRM Stickers. What's up with that?? Of course I'm bias - I didn't want to add them first, because it wouldn't really seem fair. BUT I'm SOOOOOO excited about the upcoming 4 new lines from Crate Paper - eeeek!!! And I must tell you, the CP Girls haven't seen the sneaks yet!!! It's KILLING us!! They're due to arrive in our hot little hands this week so we can prepare samples for CHA - but we are dying just was much as you are! We do know little snippets of info, BUT we can't utter a peep until January 20th when everything will begin debuting on the CP Blog! ACK! I can hardly stand it!! 

AND then there's SRM Stickers! I've gotten a peek at a few of the new releases and OH.MY.GOODNESS!! They are SO MUCH FUN!! I'll be playing with the new product VERY soon and will have lots to show you as the days get closer to CHA!! I cannot wait!!!

If all this excitement weren't enough, in addition to CHA, our family is off to the "Happiest place on Earth!" while in California! We're going to Disneyland!! Woo Hoo! The kids, husband, my Mom and her husband and my sister and her sig-o are all coming to join us! It's going to be SO much fun to see the kids get their first taste of a Disney resort! They are SO excited! So this trip is going to be DOUBLE the fun, and I cannot wait!

And for everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday on my blog or via FB, thank you so much! It meant the world to me! You are all so sweet! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! ♥A
