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

by Alicia on 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.

- Really want this bright geometric scarf
- The Glamourai does it again, never thought I’d want ‘bling jeans.‘
- When I grow up I want to live in Rowan’s room.
- Suddenly I really want a set of spinning tops.


- Washi tape slap bracelets over on the Whimseybox blog!
- A DIY doode duvet cover. Say that 5 times fast!
- A Jason Wu DIY?! Yes please!
- DIY neon lace clutch.

- Beautiful drawings by Jorinda Voigt via styleswoon.
- Hilarious McSweeney’s piece- In Which I Fix My Girlfriend’s Grandparents’ WiFi and Am Hailed as a Conquering Hero via kottke
- Life list item: Make a Rube Goldberg machine. I’m sure it won’t be as awesome as this Target one, though. I love when all the silverware jingles.
- This alone might be worth a trip to Amsterdam.


- Caroline Collective is hosting a print sale on Saturday 2/4.
- Save the date February 9th for DIY at event at Langford Market on University!
