It’s been four years since I last attended the Craft and Hobby Association trade show in Chicago, so when I express printed my badge and headed inside, I really didn’t know what to expect.
The massive convention center was filled with inspiring products, the kind that made me want to get home and start creating. I made my way over to my little spot on the floor: the Webster’s Pages booth. As the PR Manager for this company, I was most excited that I got to meet my friend, Brandin O’Neill, the co-owner and designer of Webster’s Pages, for the first time.
We hit it off right away.
For weeks now, I’ve been blogging about and chatting up our new collections:
Once Upon a Halloween:
(And a very special mid-season collection, Best Friends…)
Because I’m completely smitten with each and every design and embellishment…
But seeing the booth in person just really took my breath away. It was everything I expected from Webster’s Pages…beautiful, elegant and inspiring.
And beyond that, we just really had FUN!
After all, sharing our new collections and all the little goodies that go along with them…things like these special edition Perfect Accents:
And our brand new StoryMarkers:
…absolutely made our entire trip wonderfully memorable in every way.
Our walls were lined with gorgeous layouts from our designers…pages like this one from Diana Brodeur, which features the new Park Drive collection:
And this one from Stacey Michaud, which highlights Once Upon a Halloween:
Now we’re back home, filled with tons of new memories, anxious to get these new collections out the door…
