JANUARY release day!

ohhh I am so excited!

So, this release is larger than normal because it's technically our winter CHA release. (CHA=Craft & Hobby Association: trade show for those of you who are new...where stores buy product from manufacturers).  For the past two years, Paper Smooches had a booth at the winter CHA trade shows in California, but I decided not to have a booth again this year.  Even though we are not exhibiting, I thought it would be fun to have a larger release for old times sake.

The reason we are not exhibiting this year is simple really...it's a very stressful time for me (which spans about five months) and I just don't want to put myself through that at this time.  I may have a booth in the future (it sure was a TON of fun) but I want to make sure this venture is always super fun and I want to continue to enjoy the process.  I WILL be at the show though...I will be walking the floor.  I started going to trade shows 8 years ago and boy, do I love them!  Meeting (and hugging) people who love what I love is always a delight!
