Creative Estates {My First Blogging Conference}

Pin It
A whirl wind trip to Chandler, Arizona last weekend for the Creative Estates Blogger and Handmade conference.  The highlight was meeting all the bloggers and Twitter friends that I have chatted with on line in person. In addition to meeting many bloggers there are some biggies I was excited to meet and that I admire for their "blogger celebrity status" you know the Rock Stars of the blogging and crafty world!!
This is one of two posts - swags and raffle winnings up next and then Arizona Girls Night Out!

If you are not familiar with Project Life I encourage you to click the link.  Here is a snippit: 
Project Life simplifies how you document life and preserve memories. Simply pair your photos and journaling with the striking, pre-designed components from the kit and you'll end up with a stylish masterpiece that represents your life or whatever occasion you choose to record. With Project Life's beautifully simple, all-inclusive format, deciding what supplies to use will become obsolete, leaving you more time to experience life.

Special request: make sure you have your email attached to your blogger address or leave it in the comment area so I can reply back.  So often there is no email and I can't write back and say hi or thank you for posting!!

Glad that you got to sit at the "lucky" table. Sad that I really didn't get to spend any time with you!

I think there is a good chance you hold the title of most "put together" for the entire conference - you looked amazing!

Hope to see in you in SLC next year! In the meantime, let's stay in touch!
