  17. Vicki Poole Says:

    I already subscribe to several of the blogs… i just checked out ones that are new to me. And i like I am expanding out of papercrafting into mixed media and altered art. My favorite pic is the giant Mod Podge bottle. I am loving the stuff. Didnt know there were so many varieties. My goal for the year is to make a project to try each of them. Wont that be fun?

  18. Barbra Says:

    Love Graphic 45!

  19. Kelsey Says:

    I love the mini yarn bonbons!!!:)

  20. julie m Says:

    waiting to see the review of the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. it looks so handy, but am wondering what the maximum size envelope is and if it can be used for the long-style business envelopes.

  21. Del Marie Riley Says:

    Oh I fell in love when Tim demonstrated his new line of paints. Want. Them. All. I have so many of his inks and pads but never used them. I wasn’t sure how to use them, and to be honest, they sort of intimidated me. But now, I have a little bit more understanding of them. So exciting. Off to find more videos to watch.

  22. Lorianna Says:

    Really just LOVE your reviews
    favorite thing I saw was the Mod Podge Melts.
    I can’t wait to see you review these!!
    Would so love to try these!
    Thanks for ALL you do!

  23. L Smoke Says:

    Which product interest me the most? Well, that is a small list: Gelatos Mist Maker Kit and Gelatos Tool Set, Tim Holtz Distress Paint, Lawn Fawn’s stamps, TCW’s stencils, Mod Podge Mod Melt forms, Fiskars Fuse Creativity System or the Big Shot (since I don’t any type of embosser). You have given me a wish list than I’l have to break a piggy bank or two.

    I think I’d like to start with either the Gelatos or Distress Paints to go with the Mod Melt forms. This way I can ad color to whatever I make. Thank you for sharing.

  24. Barb Ghigliotty Says:

    Such a generous giveaway…thank you! I really like the review by “Life in the Craft Lane”…so many great pics, but mostly, I enjoyed your recaps during the show…so fun!!!

    I love the Pandora’s Craft Box, too! Thank you for the chance to win. I do a lot of crafts!

  30. Kathryn Says:

    I would put my vote in for May Flaum’s blog posts. I always enjoy the CHA round ups and product photos. They give you great ideas and generate a lot of excitement and creative spark for future products. But May’s presentations here; WOW! Her pictures speak several thousand words and she lets them stand up for themselves with minimal, spot on text. My enjoyment and general interest in what’s new out there has been elevated to salivation and a new found understanding of people who camp out overnight in front of shops to get their hands on a new product.

  31. heather Says:

    The mod podge melts look fun to me.

  32. Elizabeth Says:

    I know it sounds plain but i’m so in need of some new crafting scissors those Fiskar’s ones look awesome.

  33. Carol Douglass Says:

    Xyron has glue sticks now? That peaks my interest.

    First up now on my ‘must acquire’ list I’d have to say are the new distress paints, but thank you for all the coverage, I do love being able to see all the new offerings each CHA!

  35. Cindy deRosier Says:

    It’s impossible to pick! I guess if I *HAVE* to, I’d say I’m most intrigued by the Mod Podge.

  36. Nancy D Says:

    I have to get my hands on the E6000 spray glue! I’ve been a fan of E6000 for many years, but honestly the odor really gets to me some times. This spray looks fantastic!

  37. Stacy Says:

    I liked Vicki’s post about the people she meat at CHA. What a great time making new friends.

  38. Sheila_G Says:

    The Mod Melts….can’t wait to see more reviews, and try them

  44. Caryn S. (Scrapnsing) Says:

    The stamping gear square gear from Jenny’s Day 1 post!

  45. Monica Higgins Says:

    After reading these posts, the biggiest thing I came away with is: How in the world can I find away to get to sign up with CHA so I could attend this!!! Everything looked awesome!

  46. Barbara Poe Says:

    I love the new prima stuff. Too bad I don’t have unlimited funds. I can’t imagine being at the show. I would be broke.

  47. superstitches Says:

    Loved the post on the Clover sewing notions. They are one of my favorite for sewing notions.

  48. Amyscats Says:

    My Internet was slow, so I haven’t seen everything yet. But I liked the Tim Holz Rock Candy Glitter from the Day 3 post. Keep ’em coming, Jenny! You’ve got the best CHA coverage I’ve seen.

  49. calamityjane Says:

    That was fun!!! I checked out the list above and I know I can’t wait to see the new Spellbinders machine & things for mixed media!!! One day I’d love to go to CHA..!!!!!!

  50. Kelly F Says:

    I love the mod melts but those scissors that cut through 5 layers of fabric are a close second. Loved seeing and hearing about all the great products and fun had by all.

  51. Sandy Says:

    The Mod Podge Melts has peaked my interest. Thanks for the giveaway.

  62. Caroline D. Says:

    I really enjoyed all the articles about CHA you posted, but every time I saw someone with the giant mod podge bottle, it made me chuckle! Congrats on your blogoversary!!

  63. Rebecca Bodine Says:

    I absolutely LOVE all of Tim Holtz’s stuff.So the ink dabbers would have to be first. They’re are just too versital. But I also want to try the the large basket frames. It looks easy enough and you end uo with such pritty give away baskets!

    Too many to choose from! I think the spellbinders and styro cutter peaked my interest the most.

  72. Cindy Jacobs Says:

    I must say, went back and viewed the video about the Mod Podge melts and molds and that looks very fun!!!

  73. Cindy Jacobs Says:

    Wow, I had no idea you used to be a music therapist! So cool…I’m an expressive arts therapist and an avid crafter/artist…so, I would love to see you maybe share some of the healing benefits of using creative expression in some tutorials???? Plus, any of your tutorials are good with me! I really appreciate that you don’t accept payment for reviews, as I have been able to come here and trust I’m getting an honest review.

  74. Sarah E. White Says:

    I love them all but the new products for the fiskars fuse creativity system is my fave. I am saving to get one. So I am really interested in what they are coming up with so I can be sure about my decision to purchase. I have three Cricuts , the Imagine, Cricut Expression,and Cricut Expression 2.

  127. MaryChris Says:

    So, will the DMC infusion memory thread help me remember where I put my reading glasses so I can finish my next embroidery piece? No? That’s okay, I still love it and the Spellbinder, and the Modge Podge Melt looks cool too. So many projects, so little time!

  128. Lisa Nesbit Says:

  142. Wendy Lynch Says:

    Hey, off topic, loved seeing you on HSN! Now, back to CHA – low odor E-6000 spray has my name ALL OVER IT. I have probably killed too many brain cells from the smell of that stuff over the years! Ha ha. The Fiskars Fuse system is also tres chic fantabulous as is the envelope board. And Tim Holtz’s products – those paints…can’t get enough of watching the magic they make! Thanks for the giveaways and sharing your CHA loot!

  143. Michele Elder Says:

    The Basket frames look interesting

  144. Denise Parcells Says:

    I think my favorite item has to be that Silhouette is going to be adding chipboard to their line of products! Love my Cameo and it would be so nice to be able to make my own dimensional items by cutting out two things (maybe one if I can add the paper ahead of time, haven’t read up on the details, yet) instead of cutting several pieces of cardstock and layering them all by hand. I am also majorly interested in the Fiskar Fuse…would seriously love to get my hands on that baby!

  145. Judy Kay Says:

    I loved Julie McGuffee’s post, oh how I would love to be able to go there just once. Just inspiration!

    I am really interested in Zen-Sational Stitches for Quilting! Something really different and I love quilting.

  352. Dahlee Says:

    The spellbinder dies and all videos

  353. Felicia Akhianyo Says:

    I loved the CHA Recap in “Life In the Craft Lane” by Julie McGuffee! Her pictures were amazing and gave a view of the show that felt really complete! If I missed anything in the look I got through her blog, I don’t know what it could be. She focused on the winners, but then took looks of great pictures of everything! Love it and will be subscribing to her blog!

  354. Laura Says:

    Do I really have to choose one favorite? mod Podge has some fun new things and Tim Holz is so creative, but I have always loved Fiskars!

  355. Elena Says:

    I liked Hands Occupied post!! as per products, hard to tell, Scissors are always my favorites to see evolve :)
    thank you!!

  356. Sharon Says:

    I’m new to the blogger pages. I’m always looking for new ideas for projects and enjoy looking at all the new things on the market that makes crafting even more fun. I’m even thinking of maybe starting a blog myself but need help and information since I’m new to all of this. Thanks for the wonderful giveaways andinformation.

  357. Cheryl L Says:

    So much creative inspiration!!! I want to try out some of that paint from Design Master. For a quick link, I read about it here

    thanks for sharing :)

  358. Morado Angel Says:

    Thanks for letting me enter the giveaway :) I’m fairly new using a Silhouette Cameo and this weekend tried out the sketch pens. I was really psyched to see that Silhouette has new sketch pens!! Woohoo!

  359. Sheila S Says:

    Before I came to this site I was just debating whether to order a pair of the Fiskars Cuts+More…

  360. Christine Cyr Says:

    Yarn and more yarn, but the scissors are a very handy item. Who doesn’t love the giveaways !!!

  361. Colleen Hudson Says:

    I liked the Life in the Craft Lane…

  362. Shawna Wallace Says:

    Modge Podge Melts without a doubt! I liked many of the other items, but this pique’s my interest!

  363. Cathy MacGillivray Says:

    loved everything but if I have to name one thing ( which is difficult by the way ) I guess the Mod Podge Melts look very interesting :)

  364. Terry Romaire Says:

    this may sound corny but, a few months ago i was trying to remember the name of this stuff i wanted to use in a project and never got around to looking for in a craft store but there it was in the zen of making blog, the life-size jar of mod podge, many thanks!

  365. Linda Binger Says:

    I made an awesome scraf with the yard shown. This would be a great bundle of stuff to win.

  366. ShirleyOsborn Says:

    all were fun to explore like the Zen-sational

  367. ShirleyOsborn Says:

    all were great I love crafts of every kind – I loved the zen-sational

  368. Lori Olson Says:


    You have just made me the saddest woman I know of.. sniff… when I read the pages of what was seen by the crafters in this contest I was so excited. Imagine my watery eyes and sad face to read the part that says “you must have a US address”. Wahhhhh… I am Canadian and would SOOOO love to have a chance to win the prize pack!!!

    I’ve been slowly becoming aware of the wonderful world of crafters on Facebook, and so looked forward to having a chance to win such awesome gifts!!! Could you PLEASEEEE reconsider your stand on US address only? There are millions of Canadians who, I’m sure, would appreciate the chance to be involved in more craft adventures.. and who doesn’t like to win such a contest!!!

    Many thanks for exciting me about crafting more, bigger things, and branching out into areas new to me!

    Your neighbor to the South,

    Lori (a very sad but excited crafter)
    (PS – I have over 900 rubber stamps and perhaps 6 of those were made in Canada – the rest are from the US…please bless me with the chance to win in your contests too. I am a huge supporter of US made items to craft with and would love the opportunity to try even MORE things from the US!)

  369. Emma Rayburn Says:

    Love it all – that may be why I don’t get anything done! Love too many crafts 😉

  370. deb erb Says:

    Really liked the mod podge melts!

  371. Jen Erfley Says:

    I am a mod podge gal…I have a big stash of them, so the melts are what intrigue me the most…can’t wait for reviews!

  372. Teresa Says:

    While I LOVE all the posts, the Fiskars Fusion system grabbed my attention. Looking forward to getting and using that one day!!

  373. Katrina Cole Says:

    I love the summary from V-Spot. Her description of the new product mold system from Mod Podge will be great to work with. Can’t wait.

    Thanks for providing the summary!

  374. Audrey Carrier Says:

    I love Lion’s Amazing yarn!

  375. Amanda L Says:

    Since I just learned how to crochet I am in love with redheart, but I can’t wait to sink my busy lil fingers into all of the great products shown.

  376. Becky Dempsey Says:

    I really liked the Carmex lids covered with polymer clay!

  377. Sandra Cain Says:

    Modge Podge Melts!!

  378. Jenny Says:

    Lori- I am happy to pick a non-US winner as along as that person is willing to pay the shipping & duties. They are really exorbitant- often, higher than the cost of the actual product. It’s not that I’m trying to be mean, but since CTD is a small blog (meaning no corporate sponsors) that shipping money comes out of my pocket. You understand, don’t you?

  379. Linda Kennedy Says:

    How do you limit it to one thing? I think that anything I can “create” with is a new opportunity to learn. So many ideas, so little time…..
    The StyroCutter is amazing.
    Wish I had an iPhone to put the Cross Stitch cases on.
    The Duck Tape just opens the ideas for new bags, re-purposed items and such. Printable film from Craft Attitude has so much potential, and my daughter is so into jewelry I may have to get her a supply that she can use.
    The Mod Melts could really start me on a whole new road.
    Like I said…too many ideas and too little time…..

  380. Jen Gazaway Says:

    I loved the polymere clay designs from Jennys Day 1. That is very creative to use the carmex lids and that chandiler was absolutly gorgeous!

  381. Renee Says:

    I really enjoyed the “Life in the Craft Lane” photo recap of CHA. Makes me wish I had been there!

  382. LubbyGirl Says:

    I love those Bordeaux scissors and the Pin N Stow I saw on Haley’s Sewing/Notions Picks!

  383. Christine Beasley Says:

    I most appreciated the V spot Top 5 New Products post as it provided a concise but abbreviated introduction to 5 very useful and intriguing products. i especially am interested in the Floracraft heated styrofoam cutters, the Craft Attitude printable film and the Panoah self-adhesive fabric.

  384. LisaGWT Says:

    Styro-Cutter Plus, FINALLY what looks to be ‘the’ answer for cutting styro foam!!

  385. Lynda Hughes Says:

    Mod Podge leads by a nose.

  386. Belinda Turner Says:

    I think the bon bons look really fun and also the other yarn!

  387. Heather Ruiz Says:

    Mod Podge melts? Whaaaat?? Thanks for the chance to win!

  388. Lillian Duxbury Says:

    This would be so great for our Art and Craft group……..and yes I will pay shipping.

  389. Cathy Says:

    WOW! Everything was awesome! I feel so inspired! :) Loved the shabby chic….the shadowbox creations….the clockworks/steampunk creations! I think my FAVORITE was the Mod Podge Melts! I am excited to try them! :)

  393. charlene Says:

    I really found SewCalGal’s post interesting especially about the Zen-sational Stitches for Quilting. Anything sewing or quilting has my attention these days.

  394. Gina Shillitani Says:

    Let’s see… the TCW stencils… no, the Fiskars scissors… no, the Mod Podge melts… oh come on, you can’t expect me to pick just ONE!

  395. CindyS Says:

    I too, loved the lacy swirly created on the skirt of that outfit (Premier Yarn booth). The Fiskars Fuse booth with the adorable embossed birds really caught my eye. I wish I could have gone :)

  396. Karrie Smith Says:

    I just found your site and I LOVE it!!! I really liked the Pandora Box post.

  397. Denise McCaskill Says:

    I LOVE the yarn!! This giveaway is amazing!!!! :) Thanks!!

  398. Emily H Says:

    Wow! So many great posts and products! I really like the Mom endeavors post. Washi tape is so awesome!!

  399. Dana Says:

    they alll look interesting PLEASE dont make me try to pibk just one, but I AM a sucker for yarn….:)

  400. kim clark Says:

    All the posts have so much stuff, its craft overload. To make things simple, I can’t wait for the envelop punch. Having had demo the product at CHA and seeing it again on one of the blogs, I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  401. Miranda Miller Says:

    I think this goody bag is basically my wishlist! I’m in college, and have been missing having any craft supplies, so even the scissors seem appealing to me! haha. But, I think the Mod Podge melts would be a blast to try!

  402. Rebecca Ednie Says:

    Mod Podge melts look amazing!

  403. Ellen Trayler Says:

    I like the Mom Endeavors

  404. Jill Says:

    I totally stumbled upon you looking for Lego candies and happened to
    find your video about the molds. Now I’m hooked. It’s
    11:30 PM and I can’t stop reading!!

  405. Carmen Says:

    I would love to have a pair of Bordeaux Ultimate Scissors & Shears

  406. Gina Morgan Says:

    I wouldl ove to try some of these products! Thanks for another great contest. :-)

  407. Deb Fagnant Says:

    I see some spellbinder dies that would be awesome. This was a hard choice to decide as I love all the products

  408. Mara Weber Says:

    I really liked the Mom Endeavors… I am just getting into crafting after graduating pharmacy school and having a baby…, it was really interesting to hear you talk with such passion about all the different crafting areas and the inspiration you gained!! I would have to say I’m very interested in the scissors, anything paper crafting is awesome and what I think is Tim hold paint may be interesting!!
