I took a trip out to Utah this month for the creative blogger SNAP! conference and left completely inspired. I met tons of amazing bloggers and left full of ideas on how to grow here at Maker Mama.
The conference was held at Thanksgiving Point, and although it was super chilly, the grounds were beautiful (I SO wanted to pick a bunch of tulips). Since you couldn’t all be there with me, I thought I’d share some photos…and an awesome giveaway (with $200 worth of handmade goodies)!
I spent a good chunk of my time frantically scribbling notes during the back-to-back presentations, but there was a good amount of making going on too (and I had to bust out my Makers Gonna Make Tattly).
I also got to hang out with these lovely ladies(clockwise from top left): Shannon of Madigan Made, Lisa of The Pennington Point and Becky of Organizing Made Fun, the Ana White (okay we didn’t really hang and chat, but she was there teaching a building workshop), and my new favorite gal pal Jamie of C.R.A.F.T. (and, no I didn’t wear that stripey shirt everyday–these were all just taken on the same one).
There was even a huge craft market after dinner one evening. There was so much I wanted to take home with me, but my suitcase wouldn’t have been big enough!
You may have seen some photos from the Queen Bee Market floating around Instagram and Twitter–but you don’t have to feel left out because I’ve partnered with BlogPrizes.com and some of my blogging friends to give y’all a chance to win some of the hottest items at the Queen Bee Market. Several of these items were sold out before the show was over, and a couple sold out just after it started!
