Hello MLS friends! We're back from a fun week at CHA in Chicago and it was so nice to see those of you that attended the show and stopped by our booth.
We enjoyed exhibiting our 6 brand new collections last week and a big thanks to Julia Sandvoss from Glue Arts for the fantastic make and take she did on Tuesday.
The best news we have to share is that our collections are shipping to your local stores this week! Yes that's right! Orders were placed and our collections are ready to ship now! So look for My Little Shoebox where ever you like to shop.
Here's a few images from the show in case you missed them on our Facebook page.

I wish you all could meet Helen. She is so sweet and funny! We all love her and she is such a talented designer. She designes all of the My Little Shoebox collections.
Our sold out class was so much fun Tuesday evening! We enjoyed meeting new and returning friends for our workshop. As always Pattie designed and taught our class and everyone had a great time! Here's Helen and Pattie.
And our class having a little crafty fun with MLS goodies.
Here's Kelly Nufer from Lafayette Indiana showing off her completed mini album.
Thanks to all our friends and customers that came by the My Little Shoebox booth.
Thanks to all our fans too! We can't wait to see what you'll be creating with our new products.
Hello MLS fans. Today we are pleased to share a look at our Latest and Greatest from My Little Shoebox class that was offered at CHA. Our Design Team coordinator Pattie Beltran has been designing our CHA classes for the past several year and I am always excited to see what she puts together. This year's class was amazing! Pattie created a fun mini album using Maya Road's Picket Fence album and our Keepsake collection. We'd love to give a shout out to these companies who made our class possible with their generous donations!
Here's a look at the Mini-Album Pattie designed and created

Isn't this a fun album! Here are some pics we took during class.
Everyone is ready to get started!
Sharee from Scrapbook Nook was one of our giveaway winners!
We had so much fun with everyone! We can't wait to see you at our next class.
Once again our Latest and Greatest from My Little Shoebox class sold out at summer CHA! Our very own Design Team Coordinator Pattie Beltran designed our fun class herself and with the help of design team members Erin Yamabe and Linda Kretz, they kitted all the materials for the mini albums so our students could create them quick and easy.
When we arrived they were excited to get started and Pattie and Erin led them step by step.
Everyone was enjoying creating their mini books!
One of our happy giveaway winners!
I think Helen's favorite part of the class was giving away the prizes!
We had lots of happy ladies at the end of the night and many left raving about what a great class Pattie gave.
Here's a look at Pattie's mini album project featuring our Playtime collection and acrylic album that was sponsored by Maya Road. (Thanks a million for your continued support of MLS!)
A big thank you to all the women that attended our class. We hope to create with you again at Winter 2012 CHA!
Hello MLS fans! We're coming to you from CHA in Rosemont. The show floor opened this morning at 10 a.m. with the traditional march of bagpipe players marching thru the isles. When the the doors opened we were happy to greet so many of our wonderful customers and share our new collections with them. Our Trick or Treat, Audrey and Enchanted Garden were the early favorites.
Here's the girls that were able to join us for the show sporting their handmade aprons with Claudine's Sticky back canvas! Each one of the girls worked with a different collection to make their aprons unique. We must admit that Norine's birdcage was absolutely stunning! We'll be sure and include a photo for you real soon.
from left to right: Mandy, Shemaine, Shelly, Helen, Erin, Patti, Linda and Norine.
The booth was really easy to set up for this show and we even have a fun Silhouette photo booth! Here's miss Helen trying it out first!
What's fun about the photo booth is that when you get home you can crop the image to look like a silhouette on a wall. I'm working off a laptop tonight so pardon the non cropped sample image (wink)
After a very full day we headed over to teach our latest at greatest class and what an amazing class it was!
Make sure you visit our facebook page to see some more images!
We finished the evening with a slice of Chicago's famous deep dish pizza at Giordano's. It's been a great day and we are looking forward to even more fun tmr!
Now we owe you all the winners of our last two collection reveals! Let's Congratulate...
on winning our entire Pretty Little Things paper collection and...
to Andrea for winning our Destinations collection! Ladies please email your complete address and put the Day and collection name in the subject line. We'll ship out all reveal week prizes next week when we return from CHA.
Design Team Member Erin Payne stopped by the My Little Shoebox booth the first day of CHA to take a tour of the new collections. Here's a fab video of Helen introducing each of the new collections. Enjoy!
Hello from CHA! We all arrived safely to Los Angeles and the weather is amazing! Thursday evening after everyone arrived we had dinner at Johnny Rockets and settled into our hotel.
Friday it was all about setting up our booth! We're located next to Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd as well as many other manufacturers.
We managed to snap a few pics of the team setting up the booth.
Here's Rick helping get our floor set up.
Patti and Rocio holding up one of the panels of our booth. They are smiling because we almost have the panels all set up.
Erin and Patti starting to hang our new collections.
Phew! We are sure worn out from a looong day of setting up our booth but it looks fantastic! Stop by tomorrow for more CHA photos and complete pics of the booth set up and ready to show off our Winter Releases!
Hello friends! With CHA just around the corner Helen has been very busy at My Little Shoebox! The girls were working hard at the warehouse yesterday and we have a few behind the scenes pics to share.
Here's Helen loading up on our fabulously popular mini alpha stickers
If you are wondering how the images for our stamp sets are chosen, just ask our littlest trend watcher, Mari (Erin Yamabe's daughter). Seems she had the eye for those mushrooms we chose for our Green collection.
Helen's smile says it all! Who wouldn't smile being surrounded by all those My Little Shoebox goodies!
We can't wait til January's Craft and Hobby Association show in Los Angeles! It's going to be another great year of beautiful designs from My Little Shoebox.
