Weekend Wrap Up Party — and CHA Surprise Box Giveaway!!

It’s Friday!!

Welcome to the Weekend Wrap Up Party!!  

This week I’m going to the CHA 2013 Winter Conference & Trade Show!!

Last year I had so much fun at this conference– this year I just HAD to share part of it with you!

(There I am last year at the Blogger’s Lounge!!)

 This year I’ve decided while I’m at CHA I’m going to put together a box of surprise goodies for one of my amazing readers!!

Check out some of last year’s CHA products, link up your projects, and find out how to WIN after the break:

There were so many fun products at the show last year–

Like these ruffle bags from My Mind’s Eye!!

Or the i-Top Button Maker from Imaginisce! Crafting technology just gets easier and cooler every year!!

There were all kinds of crafting papers, fabrics, canvases, and flowers from BasicGrey.

If you want to check out all of my favorite products and projects from last year’s expo, click here!

In order to enter the giveaway for my Surprise Box from CHA 2013…

all you have to do is leave a comment on this post!

Don’t forget to link up your projects!!

And get ready for two Great Ideas posts this weekend!


Plus,  Please link up the Wrap Up button– the code is below, or a text link is great if you would rather do that – Tatertots & Jello.

Have fun!!!

I can’t wait to see YOUR ideas and feature YOU!!

  1. Choose a soap that will cleanse your body and not
    just perfume it a little bit. Looking beautiful
    doesn’t have to be hard on your budget or the environment.
    It becomes difficult to treat these scars and therefore acne
    must be treated with the help of oral drugs and topical creams and lotions.
