the CHA winter 2010 show ended last week.

looks like everyone is home and now there are lots of products and projects being shared everywhere. i really enjoy the sneak peaks. however i enjoy seeing some of the new ideas that get shared after that.

did some brief searching on my own, and here are my favourite reports:

1. Scrapbook Update Top Ten Trends (so far just part 1!)
{go also to the "CHA Winter 2010 show reports" page and follow the links they have....and grab a cup of coffee first}

2. Write. Click. Scrapbook. has a fun report on the trends at the show, other than just products.

3. Urban Scrapbook also posted some photos and a few trends they spotted.

4. Moxie Fab World is still posting products and trends seen at CHA. i really love how she displayed her photos too. some different perspectives.

5. The Scrap Review is also sharing their favourites.

nearly all the blogs reported banners as being everywhere. i am not surprised. they are so cheery!

which totally leads into another spotted trend: home stuff. (Heather was right!) one of the posts reported that the trend switched from "travel" to "home" this year. just another indication of what buyers may be wanting given the present economic situation.

trend to "buy homemade". lots of the new embellishments look like something we could make ourselves. and some we could. others we are just smarter buying! thank you for making us look good!!

in the recent months there have been some crossovers with paper. Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey are now offering fabric versions of their paper. those are just two! adhesive backed fabric and canvas look like they are even more popular. another crossover has been into the digital world of scrapbooking. Websters' Pages and Basic Grey have added some variety there. {BG disappointed me. i was hoping for some more of their fabulous stamps and brushes. i am keeping my fingers crossed that it will come. soon!}

i am excited to see all the new products in person.

in the meantime...i have lots that i need to use up. i am trying really hard to not bring in more stuff than my little room can hold. it will be a good exercise. in patience. or something. wish me luck!
