I was at Creativation last week for the yearly trade show. I didn’t get to every booth but from those that I did manage to visit, I have a list of my top 5 favorites. Some of these on the list blew me away. Like I couldn’t even speak I was so amazed and it might not be what you think if you have seen others share their experience. It was fun and tiring four and a half days of sessions, meetings, and walking. While I am going to give you a list of my favorite finds, the real favorite was meeting up with my designer friends, getting to know them better, supporting each other, and spending time with them. I only get to see them in person typically once a year but they are some of the best people I know.

Tokyo Koeki Co., Ltd. – Hawaiian Cord
This reminded me of the plastic canvas but taken to a whole new level. The handbags they created were stunning. Keep your eyes out for this brand, they were looking for a US distributor.
Ranger – New Clay
I was really interested in this clay for jewelry making. Quickcure Clay is available now at Scrapbook.com
We R Memory Keepers – Button Press
I know a lot of people loved the vacuum press by WRMK but for me, it was the button press that got my creative juices flowing. – available soon. If you are interested in seeing a demonstration of the vacuum press, you can see it on my YouTube channel. [vacuum press demonstration]
Clover – Beading Needle
This was really amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands on one. – available soon
Diamond Art – Free Style
You may be familiar with the Diamond Art craze but now Leisure Arts is going to have a freestyle version where you can buy the colors separately and create whatever you want. They also have a variety of pattern books for inspiration. I will be published is three of them. – these will be available soon.
As the products above reach the retail shelves, I will update links where you can purchase.
Which one is your favorite?
