Getting Creative at Creative Estates — Spring Bunting Canvas!!

19 Apr

There were a few reasons that Creative Estates was so awesome. One was meeting so many fabulous ladies. Another was the weather. And the third reason I loved it was that it totally recharged my creativity. Being in a room with so many other, creative women was amazing!!

In addition to breakout sessions and speakers, there were some fun creative classes!! The Lifestyle Letterpress class was fun with demonstrations on what their letterpress system could do. Bev from Flamingo Toes taught a class on how to make a beautiful Anthro-inspired necklace that was just stunning. 
And I helped Kami from No Biggie with a fun creative project using products from DecoArt and The Canvas Corp. I made up a sample canvas — a little Spring Bunting Sign to help get people’s creative juices flowing.
But what I LOVED was seeing people take the same materials and create such different and FUN creations!!!

A big thank you to DecoArt and The Canvas Corp for sparking our creativity!!!
Do you ever get in a creative rut? 
What do YOU do to spark YOUR creativity?? 
PS if you want to make a canvas like my inspiration one, it’s SO easy!! 
All you need to do is paint your canvas. Then cut out a bunting stencil {I have a few extra, so if you want one, leave me a comment and I will send them out to the first commenters}. Then stencil a little word at the bottom. and finish it off by hot gluing a little bit of Baker’s Twine to the top. A cute Spring addition to an entry table 🙂

Creative Estates — Recharging my Creativity!!

14 Apr
I spent an amazing weekend at Creative Estates. 
It was wonderful being around so many creative, beautiful women! Plus, we were in Arizona and the weather was so nice {except for Saturday – lol}. 
I learned so much, I laughed so much — it was AMAZING!!! 
I just HAD to share a few pictures and details with you!! 
The first thing we did was check out an AMAZING fabric/trim store from our fabulous AZ guide — Becki from Whippycake. Do you know Whippycake? Becki makes the MOST amazing rosettes. Seriously, you fall in love with her creations. I think by the end of the conference that every girl at the conference was sporting a Whippycake creation! 
Then we went to the amazing Cupcakes and Cocktails event. 
So much fun!!

 

All of the break out sessions were amazing!!
And then I spoke at a panel on How to Post on a Creative Blog. My panel mates were amazing — Kim @ Today’s Creative Blog, Cindy @ Skip to my Lou and Amy @ The Idea Room!! 
Then Friday night I was able to attend an amazing
Thanks to Stephanie, Kendra, and Kristyn  for a completely amazing event!
We also got a fun shot of a bunch of us with our Jo Totes bags.  
We love them!! 
Plus, I was able to meet so many talented, inspiring ladies!!
{Becki from Whippycake — isn’t she gorgeous??}
{Becky Higgins and Kami — Becky gave us some great advice on how to balance our lives}
{The fabulous Kim from TomKat Studios}
 {I even got to meet the talented Whipperberry girls!}
And we goofed around and giggled all night long!! 
And thanks to these lovely ladies — Tauni and Shey for dreaming this amazing event up and putting it on.  
What an amazing time!!! 
Plus, have you heard the news??? 
Creative Estates is going to be in UTAH next year!!! 
I can hardly wait. It is going to be AMAZING. 
I hope you can come. 
I would love to meet YOU!!!! 
And a big thank you to Clever Girls for allowing me to team up with them for a clever partnership!

PS— I am participating in something super fun in two weeks from I Love To Create!! 

I Love To Create sent me a bag of goodies and challenged me to make something with them and then I, along with these other talented ladies, will show off our creations LIVE. It’s going to be fun!! 
PPS — I have so many other things to share, including 6 projects that I am working on this week. Thank you Creative Estates for recharging my Creativity!!
