CHA Show Winter 2012

We just finished attending the Winter 2012 Craft and Hobby Association Show.

Mindy and Amy attended some really exciting Workshops and made some very interesting things.

Tim & Amy - CHA 2012      Tim & Mindy CHA 2012

For instance, Ranger's main teacher was Tim Holtz, who taught a project with a couple of small canvas frames. Small did not mean it was not dynamic, unique and artistic.  Small allowed those who are just starting into working with canvas to not be so intimidated.  Although I have not actually met or interacted with Tim, Amy and Mindy both describe him as full of humility with an artistic vision that is unparalleled.  The Ranger class also introduced them to Claudine and her stamps and paints as well as a new designer with Ranger - Dyan who brings a whole hippy artistic mess to your projects.  I think their hands are still ink stained from that experience.  This class taught a wide variety of techniques and challenged the "out of the box" creative flow.  What a great opportunity for designers and store owners to see and create first hand not only with the leading products on the market but the creative minds behind them.
