My 2013 CHA Top 13

I know we have all had time to pour over all of the new goodies from CHA.  I made a Pinterest board to help me keep track of them, but I thought I would share my top 10 manufactures on my blog just for fun.  After trying to stick to only 10 things, I knew it couldn't be done, so I decided to pick 13 manufacturers for 2013!!! So without further ado & in no particular order here is my list:

1. Elle's Studio - Day to Day is seriously cute! I recently bought some of their products and I have since fallen in love with them!

2. Jillibean Soup - All of it, but especially Chilled Cucumber Soup, Placemats, Corrugated Shapes, Sugar Picks and Wise Words!!!

3. The Crafter's Workshop - Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and Ronda Palazzari's new templates are just aMAZing!!! Have I mentioned that I have become addicted to these things?!?!

4. My Mind's Eye - Collectable...yeah pretty much all of it!!!

5. Little Yellow Bicycle - Naturals...canvas, wood, cork, & burlap yumminess!!!

6. Studio Calico - Snippets, Sundrifter and Here & There. I am digging bits and pieces from each of these collection!!! The stars, the wood veneer (did you see the horses?!?!) and the colors!!!

7. Bella Blvd - Sand & Surf - I'm going on a beach vacation this summer and I see this coming in quite well for that!!! I am also loving the new feathers and crochet hearts!!!

8. Bo Bunny - I must say this is my most favorite release from Bo Bunny ever! All of their new collections are amazing and I can not wait to dig into them.  I am especially excited about their new doilies, bling and stamps!!!

9. Tim Holtz - Distress Paint! Need I say more? Really, who doesn't need these?!?!

10. We R Memory Keepers - Envelope Punch Board! This tool just looks amazing and I would love to be able to make cards and not have to worry about them fitting in an envelope!!!
11. Lily Bee - I am loving everything about their new Pinwheel collection and their new embellies package! Thank you for making them in a smaller grouping like this!!!

12. Teresa Collins - That elegant owl alone makes me what her new Stationary Noted collection!!!

13. Allison Kreft/Webster's Pages - The fun and bright colors in this collection make me happy!

So...there you have it! My TOP 13 But I will admit, there are many more bit & pieces and other manufacturers that caught my eye this year! Metallic, cameras, owls, horses, chevrons, jars, potty people, feathers, triangles, mustaches, wood, stencils and stars OH MY!!!

  4. You have almost the same list that i do!! Great minds think alike!

  5. I haven't looked at everything so thanks for the share Juliana! I love Dear Lizzy's 'Lucky Charm" & Glitz Design "Color Me Happy" - I've found that, sadly, as the years have gone by - instead of liking more & more I've started getting more and more fussy, liking less & less and not being "shabby" and not being "clean and simple" so am hard to please LOL!
