... the Craft and Hobby Association!
I am officially a Creative Professional! For years, it's been a goal of mine for years to turn my crafting hobby into a profession. Having my own CHA membership is the ultimate sign that I have moved from hobbyist to being in the industry. I am thrilled.
Over the years, I have worked for a handful of CHA members. But working for a CHA member is completely different than being a member in my own right. This is the direction I've been wanting to go. With each job I've been offered, I've thought carefully about how (or if) it would help me towards my goal. I put off applying for CHA membership until I was sure that my credentials were strong enough and that I was at the point that the membership would have benefit and meaning to me beyond just attending their awesome trade show. I'm there. It's so exciting.
I'm hurriedly making arrangements to attend the CHA Mega Show in Anaheim. It starts just 3 weeks from today. I absolutely cannot wait! Will any of you be attending? I'm starting to put together my schedule and I want to be sure to block in times to get together with as many friends as possible!
