Photos from the Craft & Hobby Mega Show

Cards I made for the designer showcase booth.

I spent last weekend at the 2014 Craft and Hobby Mega Show. I was one of the designers in the iloveToCreate booth. I’m so proud, because our booth always ROCKS with creativity and wow factors. Here are a slew of pictures!

iLovetoCreate hosted a cool event called “Creative Refresh” for bloggers and designers to relax and get pampered.


Here is a video showcasing our new Tulip Hair Chalks!

This is a scarf I made for the designer showcase. I used different white natural fibers (wool, rayon, silk, cotton) and dyed them!
Part of our booth display included the painted beach balls. Yes, we blew a lot of them up manually before the show!
Rupert from Survivor is our new tie-dye spokesman! He was there at the show demoing our tie-dye and people LOVED him!
Wild art piece made from a yoga ball and Tacky Glue bottles!

Susie from our iLovetoCreate design studio made this!


I was supposed to give a pep talk at our Creative Refresh event but for whatever reason, it didn’t happen. But I plan to make a blog post, because I put together some really great info!
