My 2¢ | CHA-W 2014 | Part 1 | My Favorites (So Far)

Hi everyone! Today is the start of the CHA-Winter show for 2014 in Anaheim, California. That means new product is being shown all over the blog-o-sphere, and I already have several standouts and thoughts on trends for the upcoming year. 

I'm breaking my CHA post into two parts, as there's a TON of stuff to share. Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorites (so far). ;)

Here's my 2¢ on what I'm seeing for CHA-W 2014.

Doodlebug | Sprinkles aarowsLily Bee | Everyday ampersand enamel dots

I'm so excited that there are shapes coming out in these enamel dots. Their size is great and I love all the colors they come in, and I'm a sucker for ampersands, so these speak to me a LOT!

Maya Road | Ampersand Paper Clips

These are just too fun and such a great font. Ampersands can look funny in some fonts, so this could have been a train wreck, but this turned out fabulous! These would look great on vellum, or transparencies, I think!
