I attended this year’s Winter CHA in search of anything colorful and inspiring. I was wearing my new Peacock Bangle bracelet and was tickled to find fashion designer Suede (suedesays.com) sporting a cool hair color that was a perfect match. Suede has a new line of patterns with Simplicity Creative Group. I just had to get a photo. I also found some great beads made out of paper–mostly recycled magazines (paperbeads.org). I had to pick up the new bead collections from Jesse James (jessejamesbeads.com) in yummy colors like Plum Brulee, Cinnamon Toast and Maui Wowee. Red Heart’s new Boutique line in very exotic colors and textures was an unexpected surprise. And the new VERY BIG yarn from Bernat is gorgeous in luscious, luminous colors. Spent a lot of time as usual at May Arts booth among amazing ribbon. I found lots of inspiration. Check out the images below.
