Winter CHA Top Ten Countdown#1

All who have been to a craft show know that one of the best things is the MAKE & TAKE! At this year's show, I got some really great loot: a fabulous bracelet, pretty paper flowers, darling name tags, cute hair bows, and more! I made a charming journal at the Kaisercraft booth.

And each time I sit in a class or at a make and take table, I learn so much about the craft industry. I get to feel the pulse of other craft store owners, and gather the little tricks that make life in the crafting world so much easier. But the goodness of an ordinary make and take is not enough to make #1 on our countdown.

drumroll please.....

The jewel of this Kaisercraft's make and take was Melissa.

I hope you all have a chance to take a class with her at some point. Our make and take class had 8 people who had a blast the entire time we made our journals. We laughed; we crafted; we bonded. One of our classmates fell in love with a Kaisercraft paper cutter, and she broke into an impromtu commercial for it! The class was bubbly and productive and delightful.

Melissa moderated the class flawlessly, answered questions, entertained us, and loved us. It's rumored that she might instruct on a crafting cruise to Alaska! If there are enough participants, you too could fall in love with Melissa. We'll have to keep our ears tuned in for more details about that.

Thank you so much, Melissa for such a fun time!
