The happiest place on earth every February is really CHA, Anaheim California
The sea of people streaming through the convention center and the throngs crowding every booth is a sure indication that crafting is alive and doing very well.
A little piece of crafting heaven.

The happiest spot on Earth isn’t Disneyland. It’s right across the street at the Anaheim Convention Center, a place so wonderful, so full of magic that good ol’ Mickey gets a little bit jealous.

Each February hundreds of craft vendors (and tens of thousands of attendees) gather for the Winter 2008 Craft & Hobby Association’s trade show. The purpose is to showcase the hottest, newest, most mind-blowing products for retailers and press. It is a crafter’s heaven!

Lucky girl that I am, I’ll be attending this year as a guest of CraftStylish. I’ll be on the lookout for the best and brightest paper products to share with you. Of the nearly 1,000 vendors attending almost half of them are paper and scrapbooking companies. Get ready for some paper goodness coming your way in my post-convention blog entries.

For those of you not able to attend this year, several manufacturers are giving tiny sneak peeks of their CHA releases on their sites. Now you can be part of the fun, too.

Check out some of my favorites:
