The boys stayed home with my mom while Joe and I took wee Scout with us to Minneapolis for The Creative Connection Event.
I spoke on two panels with cool ladies and had a blast at the conference.
Scout did awesome and Joe loved being like the only dude around hundreds of sexy ladies. We had a King sized bed and ate room service. I slept for four hours one night!

The CCE was amazing- the event was created by Nancy Soriano, former editor of Country Living and Jo Packham, the founder and editor of Where Women Create. (SWOON-these women are genius)

Amy Butler, Ree Drummond, Mary Jane Butters, and Heather Bailey were speakers! (AND they are each down to earth and real.... and GORGEOUS
I met artisits and creative powerhouses all weekend.
Etsy was in the house too and it was BRILL!

I am so glad we went.
I have a stack of cards to go through today and I can't wait.
Don't you just love networking and meeting new online besties?
