here in Mostly Smoggy So. Cal., because we do have such mild winters, we also get a lot of conventions during the winter.
makes sense - we are notorious for, among other things, mild winters, no snow and some of the most egotistical & vain peeps this side of the Hollywood city limits.
so it's really no surprise that the Craft Hobby Association, otherwise known as CHA, generally holds its winter meet here.
and it's really no surprise either that they hold it across the street from the Happiest Place on Earth.
last year, i almost had a chance to volunteer at the show...i had signed up to help in a booth but unfortunately due to an email glitch, i didn't make it. which, in a way, is OK, when you consider that unless you've got a resale license, you ain't buying diddly.
talk about a tease.
generally, there are a lot of scrapbooking celebs at this show. some to work, some to play and check out what's new for this year.
and apparently there was a whole new celeb appearing there this year.
yep. the O.C. Register.com ran an oh-so-small story on their website stating that Paris attended the show this weekend, touting her new line of (wait for it) scrapbooking products, aimed at the 'tween' age.
isn't that great, America? not only can your 11 year old girl dress trashy, now she can scrapbook that way as well.
in all fairness, i haven't seen the line. not that i would expect her to send photos in an email blast to anyone that signed up for twopeasinabucket.com. but i have to admit i'm curious as to what it looks like.
and i gotta say that although i wouldn't buy anything from the line, even if i did like it, based only on moral grounds (chick has more than enough cash, she doesn't need any more from me), i'm so seeing a trend here. not only can you have hair extensions & clothing by Paris, you can also smell like her (the perfume she designed). now you can scrapbook like her.
not that i'm seeing her surrounded by glue dots and deckled scissors anytime soon.
but i do see that for years she's had an interest in memory making. after all, she's documented
parts of her life.
