CHA Members Getting Crafty at Teen Choice!


We interrupt your regularly scheduled weekly activities for an important announcement: CHA will sponsor crafty make-n-take tables at an exclusive event to kick off the Teen Choice Awards this Saturday, August 10, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. PST. Countless people involved in the awards show (which airs Sunday, August 11 at 8:00 p.m. EST on Fox) will have the chance to drop by the Connected Gift Lounge, where they’ll get crafty trying out techniques to make trendy jewelry projects sponsored by CHA members.

Here’s a sneak peek of the make-n-take projects Hollywood-ites will get to create.

We’re incredibly excited about this amazing opportunity to promote crafting to Hollywood, and we’d love it if you can help us spread the word. Use the official hashtags #CHASwag and #TeenChoice together when you tweet or post about the event. And follow @CraftandHobby on Twitter as the CHA staff tweets live from the event Saturday, reporting which celebs go into the lounge and what projects they make. We’ll also be updating our CHA Facebook Fan Page as well. So don’t miss out all of the action on our social media accounts.

In addition to getting crafty in the lounge, celebrities who come through the lounge will have the chance to sign a marble-paint dipped surfboard. This surfboard will later be auctioned off to benefit the CHA Foundation, whose mission is to serve as a catalyst for the purpose of enhancing life through creative expression throughout the world. Special thanks to Peachtree Global for donating the surfboard and to iLoveToCreate, Kiki Magazine and Sarah-n-dipitous Designs for donating items for the gift bags of SWAG (Stuff We All Get) that celebrity presenters take home.

With your help spreading the word, we’ll let lots of people know this craft connection to this trendy event. Don’t forget to follow along on social media Saturday and then tune into the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday!
