OMG CHA and The Week That Was–January 27, 2012

I’m about to head out to Anaheim for CHA, the Craft and Hobby Association tradeshow. While I feel like the last year has been a whirlwind of tradeshows and conventions this will be my first CHA and I’m psyched! I’ve packed all of my flat shoes and charged all of my batteries – I’ll share what I find here, on Twitter @whimseybox and on the Whimseybox blog. Any request? Let me know, I *will* chase down Vanna White for you.
