Live from The Creative Connection Event!

September 17, 2010, 09:53 am  Posted by Craft Your Life Team

Hey there! I’m posting today instead of my usual Thursday spot because yesterday, I was in transit and then participating in the first day of The Creative Connection Event. So far, the conference, a women-driven networking and inspiration-generating event, has been truly delightful. It began with an Autograph Cocktail Party, where I was honored to sign copies of Craft Corps amongst other authors such as Kathy Cano-Murillo (who’s also my hotel roomie), Ree Drummond, Cathie Filian, Heather Bailey, Betz White, Kristin Nicholas, and so many more!

Post cocktail party, we were ushered into a grand ballroom set to accommodate 400 people, all of whom were treated to a hand stamped, silver necklace by Lisa Leonard Designs, and a gift bag filled to the brim with crafty goodies. The tables were beautifully decorated with vintage-inspired fabric (courtesy of keynote speaker, Amy Butler) and handmade, vellum lanterns. We spent a couple of hours eating, listening to keynote addresses (also with Mary Jane Butters) and a Q&A session.  The evening was capped-off by drinks with Cathie F., Brett Bara, Amy Butler (who’s become a dear friend, since interviewing her a couple of years ago for Craft Corps), and her publicist, Mallory.

Here are a few snapshots from yesterday’s events, to give you just a glimpse into The Creative Connection.
