Archive for Where Women Create
Yes! This is where I will be later this coming week. Will you join me?
Some classes are full, but there are openings still available….
The Creative Connection Event is 3 days packed full of inspiration, creative businesses, women and so much passion for their craft … you will come away thoroughly inspired. The collaboration of Jo Packham and Nancy Soriano, it has attracted some of the biggest names in the business for Keynote Speakers, Class Instructors and Attendees alike. Last year was the 1st Annual Event, which I also attended and it was just fantastic. I met so many creative, wonderful women.
It will be held at the Crowne Plaza in St Paul. So please head on over to the link and register yourself for 1, 2 or all 3 days. When you do, leave me a comment so I will know you’re attending and we can hook up at some point.
So… come get your creative on and join me!

Oh, and if you win, you must post and tell us about it!! Good luck all!
Oh… there is so much to show and tell!
I have had to put this post off for a bit, just knowing it was going to take a while to download/edit all of the photos and to actually put it into words~
I will give the recap in 3 parts… just to make it more manageable.
Today… I’ll focus on the Tablescapes and Decor!
Yes, we were treated to delightful decorations and themes with each meal or main gathering. It was sort of expected, but the fantastic Creative Connection Event team even outdid the expectations. Yes, it was definitely NOT your average conference!!
Take a look at the table-scape and themed decor for the daily events…
Our first dinner was not only delicious, but was set delightfully with tablecloths made out of Amy Butler fabric! Girly, creative, and festive at the same time! And to top it off, we each received a custom necklace created for each one of us by Lisa Leonard Designs. How special is that?!
And to think that some old pages from a book would create such lovely decorations and tables at our next luncheon….
And for the most delightful send off party ever…
A Cupcake Farwell Party…
So, come back for the next post…Creative Hands-On Classes!
I am so excited… I have made lists, gathered the required class supplies, packed my camera, my business cards, my bag of clothes, too many pairs of shoes, and I am off!
I will be spending the next 3 glorious days in communion with about a hundred other kindred creative spirits. We will enjoy classes, speakers, discussion panels, dinners, keynote speakers, creative make and takes, networking, business connections, shopping, blogging and so, so much more. It will be a fantastic time for both me personally and for the growth of my company. When we invest in ourselves, our education, our creative spirits, and our heart’s calling, we refuel, recharge and reconnect with our passions.
I am hoping to post a little while there, but can’t honestly say I will, as our schedule is busy from morning until late evening with all of the fantastic things planned at this event. So, while I may be taking a blogging break for a few days, try to join me by taking on a small creative project of your own.
Maybe you’re going to plan a wonderful meal with a new recipe, maybe you will scrapbook your latest photos, join your kids on a nature walk, or gather some treasures on a antiquing weekend. Whatever you do, do it with creative spirit!
Oh, and please join me back here soon for the recap of the Creative Connection Event details, I know they’ll be great!
