The Creativation 2019 show is now in the books and we left sunny Phoenix yesterday morning for our long journey home!
We just got back to snowy Wisconsin at 1:00 AM and we are busy sorting out our new retailer’s orders and getting ready for our release party that will be happening tomorrow night at 7:00 PM!
Creativation was so much fun! For those of you who aren’t familiar with this event, it’s the biggest crafting event in the industry. It’s currently held in Phoenix, Arizona and it’s a huge trade show where manufacturers and companies show their line of products to brick and mortar and online stores, distributors and industry influencers. Store and distributors place orders we get to meet and hug industry folks that we work with around the world.
This was our first time at the show as an exhibitor and we were part of a new concept called The Stamping Village.
The shared space was a fun place to relax, meet industry influencers, take a photo in the photo booth and participate in the company joint make and takes!
Our booth was small but so much fun! We had it made for us and shipped to the show so building it was tricky since we didn’t know what we were doing but it sure came together well!
We had our team from Wisconsin there along with Rina. And we got to see Karen Hightower and Arijita Singh! They joined us when they weren’t working in other booths over the weekend.
We did wreath builder make and takes we were also running back and forth to the ThermOWeb booth showcasing my new line with them! (I can’t wait to share all of it in videos soon!)
One of our show-stoppers was the Mega Wreath Builder which is coming in February. I made this piece of home decor using it.
Tom even got in on a little demo action!
And the whole booth got packed up into two big containers and a giant wooden crate. Here is one of the containers with the crate.
It was a wonderful experience and one I will never forget!
Tomorrow night, we kick off 2019 with our January release!
We will be doing it live on Facebook and I will try to embed it here so you can watch it on my blog! Fingers crossed! If that doesn’t work, I will link it for you so you can see it. I have four sneak peeks to show you!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more so stay tuned.
Make it a great day and Happy Stamping!
