The Creative Connection Event

I just spent the past four days in Minneapolis attending The Creative Connections Event created by Nancy Soriano and Jo Packham of Where Woman Create.  I truly had a wonderful time and was inspired by many passionate and creative woman.  Jo and Nancy did a great job planning this event!

My old college roommate, Heather Tollers, attended this event with me.  We picked up right where we left off.  It was nice being able to catch up with an old friend who I hadn’t see for five years.

I really enjoyed meeting Danielle and Vanessa from Etsy. They were kind, funny, and generous with helpful Etsy advise.

I took a great “Retro Kitchen” class taught by Camille Roskelley. I sat at a table with some fellow Utah twitter friends: the sweet Paige Hill and the funny Jana Nielson.

I also enjoyed Betz White’s class where I made some adorable felted ornaments and Ruth Rae’s class where I started making a family keepsake album.

The highlight of my weekend was meeting the lovely and down-to-earth Amy Butler.  She spoke at the opening dinner.  Afterward we briefly spoke and she embraced me with a hug.  Truly, she is an inspiration!

All in all, it was a fabulous weekend.  I gathered lots of business cards from awesome vendors, artists, and crafters.  I’ll be sharing some of them with you as a part of my “A Crafty Holiday” event.
