As you’re reading this post, the Paper Crafts editors and Go-to Gals are jet-setting to California for the Winter Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) trade show. Here we’ll see all of the manufacturers’ new product lines and mingle with designers and those who share in our paper crafting passion.   

At the show we’ll be holding several booth events. We’ll be promoting our current January/February issue, Stamp It! Cards, our two blogs, as well as greeting fans and giving away some fun prizes.

Want a sneak peek at our brand new t-shirt? Based on the Moxie Fabs column in our January/February issue, we had so much fun pairing this sassy sentiment with a vintage image. Very Anne Taintor-esque!  

Paper Crafts proudly presents the next big thing in fashion: our sassy t-shirt!

Here's a close-up view of this cute sentiment.

Can you guess what today’s giveaway is? Yep, I’ve got three t-shirts up for grabs! To win one, leave a comment telling me what you think we should name this sassy girl. All comments must be received by midnight (MST) on Sunday, Jan. 24.   

Hope to see ya at CHA!
