Hi everyone . First of all please keep posting your comments on our discussion Blog posts , much appreciated.

We arrived in California last night after the best flight here we have ever had with Air New Zealand , a wonderful airline i have to say .

We are working on the SCOR-PAL stand at the show for three days demonstrating our No More Shims mat which sells very well over here . We already have a lot of interest from today before the show starts.

For the first time we saw the new Spellbinder dies and 3D Embossing Folders which are sure to be a big hit . Spellbinders are easily the best thing at the show .

We have noticed a few new things , but nothing spectacular to be honest . Looks like most of our money will go on the 60 or so new dies from Spellbinders . I can tell you that there is a possibility we may be bringing Stacey and possibly some others from Spellbinders to the UK to take part in an event later this year . Stacey has stated her interest in doing so . I hope some of you will remember the large events we staged with Spellbinders in Chesterfield , those were great events enjoyed by all.

Spellbinders have also just announced a brand new range of Dies and matching Jewellery items which match up to make the most stunning pieces , another great idea from Stacey and the team. We will be carrying this new range as well as all the dies . All items will feature when the new web site goes live next month . To introduce the new web site we will launch with a great offer on the all new LOYALTY POINTS SCHEME. The points will equate to extra discounts you can spend right away or save up to spend whenever you like . We are sure you will love this new reward scheme .

We have been speaking to others over here about our new business venture ( to be revealed soon ) and we have great interest from some US companies in taking part , exciting times ahead !

Leonie and Nigel are here with Create and Craft TV doing some live broadcasts from the show , no doubt featuring Spellbinders for one .

We will keep you posted of any other news we have from CHA.
