Creative Connections Conference – I’m Going!
June 15, 2010
When the Creative Connections Conference was first publicized, I immediately called my college roommate, an artist living in Minnesota. We talked about the possibility of attending the conference together since we both just started small at-home businesses this past year, me with The Artists’ House and her with HT Designs 4U. Oh, we were so hopeful! Money has been tight though, and as much as I wanted to attend the conference and see Heather, I didn’t know if it was going to be possible. I felt a little like this…
This past Saturday, my email was buzzing like crazy. All these people were suddenly following me on Twitter. I knew something was up. I logged in and when I saw that tweet from Etsy, saying that I was the winner, well I just couldn’t believe it.
“UPDATE: We have a winner! Congratulations to Angela, a.k.a. theartistshouse (@TheArtistsHouse on Twitter), who has won the trip to the Creative Connection! We can’t wait to meet you at the conference. Here’s her tweet: “
I was so excited! After expressing my joy with my little daughter, I immediately called Heather. We both were tickled, acting like college freshman again, giddy on the phone. It’s funny, how this conference and this awesome giveaway is helping two college roommates, creative in spirit, reconnect for the first time in five years. Heather is looking into registering for the conference as we speak.
