Just a few weeks back I was invited by Michaels Crafts to come to Dallas and join in some creative fun. I crafted up a storm, took silly pictures, and was inspired to create for the Holidays. I even left with a big box of supplies, thanks to Michaels. I’m ready for the holiday season to begin!
Here’s just a little about the weekend:
- Crafting: From the moment we got there, they had us crafting. It was so.much.fun! The lovely Jo Pearson took us through a few crafts. We made some flower ribbon bracelets, a hanging inspiration board, and jump ring bracelets. I’ve never made a jump ring bracelet and I think I’m addicted. I filled it with all kinds of trinkets that represent something I love!
- Bloggers: I was lucky enough to be one of 15 amazing bloggers to come to this Michaels Craft event. Below are Beckie of Infarrantly Creative, Lorie of Be Different Act Normal, and Amy of The Idea Room. We might have had a little fun as we crafted!
- Celebrities: We got to meet a few crafting celebrities. Jo Pearson – the creative brain behind Michaels Crafts and a judge on Craft Wars, Tim Holtz – cutting edge craft supplier, Amy Labbe – fun and funky jewelry designer, and Duff Goldman – master cake maker!
- Inspiration: Head over to my round up post at Babble’s New Home Ec where I share all kinds of fun crafty project ideas for Michaels Crafts 2012 Holiday Season!
