A bunch of Girly Girls + Glue Stix, Jewels, & Excited Energy = The Creative Connection

There are times in life where you have to sit back and wonder if you're living in a dream, or pinch me, this is for real. Well I have had plenty of those moments in the past two days here in Minneapolis. The Creative Connection is in a word . . . amazing! I know that sounds so trite, but words can't describe this collective gathering of creative women.
One of those amazing women is pictured above with Timi and me . . . that's Jo Packham. Yes, can I say that I love this woman! She is humble, endearing, generous, thoughtful, and I can't wait to get to know her even more. She has surrounded herself with the same kind of women as she - kind beyond words. I just don't know what else to say.
Today, I crafted the most darling little crown. Check back for pictures next week. Tonight was the Gala Event featuring Keynote Speakers Mary Jane Butters of MaryJanes Farm, and one of my most favorite idols, Amy Butler. It was such a incredible evening and we all took away a huge swag bag full of goodies galore!
On Friday, I will be a student in Kaari Meng's Heart Cushion Class. Kaari is yet another favorite. Then in the afternoon, I have a Business Seminar about taking my business to the next level.
Saturday, one more class, a darling little Christmas birdy and the farewell Cupcake Party. Yes, I'm tired, but I'm completely exhilarated. Yes, I am blessed and oh so HaPpY!


  1. I agree - words just can't describe - so wonderful to share this event with you - blessings!

  2. It was an incredible event, and I am so enjoying reading everyone's posts about their thoughts. Living in St. Paul, I was blown away by how far people traveled to attend the event! I could only attend Thursday, but will definitely do all three days if they do it again.

    Love your Etsy shop, GORGEOUS. I am really new to Etsy and loving it-what a wonderful outlet for our creative souls!

  3. It was so great to get to spend some time with you! You are one of those amazing and kind women...I love Jo, too! And loved getting to know you! See you soon!

  4. @Elaine - it was wonderful to get to know you a little better. The event was amazing, I love my new things that I purchased from you. Life is good!

    @Kristi - yes, we crazy creative peeps will travel far and wide to connect with like minds. So glad you've joined the ETSY world. I love being there among so many other creative souls.

    @Hollie - you, your sweet Momma, and Chrissy! So much love surrounds you. It was so great to spend some time with all of you - sorry I sobbed on you all. I'm a cryer, what can I say. Can't wait to see you later this month at Ruffles and Rust. It's gonna be a blast. Blessings and love to you and yours. xoxo
