Creativation 2017 - Video Walking Tours and Friends!

Going to the CHA or Craft and Hobby Association convention now known as AFCI (Association for Creative Industries) has been on my bucket list for a long time.  This year it became a reality!  Many companies I work for want me to come and help in various capacities, and with the aid of my family, a close friend, and a plane ticket it all came true!!

I landed on Wednesday night and my friend Betz picked me up and hosted me for the days I was there.  She became a group ride as she had a nice big van to haul people around, an awesome friend, and she got o make some wonderful connections along to way to jump start her crafty career!  I cannot begin to thank you enough for all you did for me, love you girl!!

I took a video of the vendor floor walking around talking with vendors, giving people who have not had a chance to go to the conference to get a peak at what the show is like.

Want to know what it is like to set up a booth?  Check out my set up video here.

I even got a sneak peak of behind the scenes on set up days here from Friday morning.  Set up days were Thursday and Friday

I also got a little video of the floor before the show started on Sunday.  The Show floor was open on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

I have a ton of demos of products, some booth tours from some amazing artists, and some other fun videos coming your way including my time with Fashion Fusion, my make n takes, and my haul of goodies!!

Here are a couple of the fun videos I posted while at the show, on of Amy Tangerine (she had lost her voice so the video is really short) and also of a Ranger embossing demo.

I had the most amazing time at the show, met some amazing people I had only met online which to me was more than worth going.  I cannot wait for next year!!
