I would love to share this experience with you…I am just over the moon happy right now!
OK, seriously…..I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole wide world right now….surrounded by BRAVE GIRLS from all over the place….I am in Minneapolis at one of the coolest, most amazing and inspiring events I have ever seen….I was invited as a special guest, just last week…..and WOW, I am so glad that I said yes. I arrived yesterday and it was a whirlwind of everything I love…..beautiful art everywhere, amazing artists everywhere, inspiring smart and innovative entrepreneurs everywhere (AND CAN YOU BELIEVE I DID NOT EVEN TAKE ONE PHOTO? And I had a totally cute dress on!!!!)….I was just too excited….I spent so much time with the powerhouses behind this event, incredible women just like you ……click HERE to find out more…
So….if you happen to be in town….stop by here FOR SURE….if not, I’m gonna do my best to tell you what I did while I was here….it hasn’t even started yet, officially…today’s the day!!!!!….and I am really only here for a day, next I head down to Mall of America for the fabulous Scrap-Fest where I will be teaching on Friday and Saturday (YAYY!!) I will tell you more about all of that, too!!! SO much fun this week!!! Next week, I head to Las Vegas for Inspiration Unlimited, where I will be the keynote speaker…I will for sure tell you all about that too! SO MUCH FUN STUFF coming up…so many adventures!
I’m having a blast with Shea Fragoso and Debbie Murray , incredible mother/daughter team…Shea and I have been “friends” for a while online…..but meeting someone in person is always THE BEST, especially when they are EVEN MORE AMAZING in person…..we are actually rooming together, and it has been funner than fun! They are helping to put on this incredible event, as well as teaching some fabulous classes….you MUST check out their blog….A Guilded Life….
Ok, so seriously, TODAY I get to meet and hang out with some people that I look up to and follow and gather massive amounts of inspiration from…..already, yesterday, I got to spend lots of time with Jo Packham and Nancy Soriano…..I was featured in Where Women Create magazine in the last issue, so it was so fun to meet and talk to Jo….Nancy is a whiz and I had a blast chatting with her and her sister….Nancy was the editor for Country Living magazine for over a decade….what amazing women!
So that was JUST YESTERDAY! Today holds all sorts of wonderful-ness. Last night, I ran into the product development team from Demdaco, the fabulous company that I designed a line of gifts and home decor for that will be coming out next year…I get to hang out with them again today…LOVE THEM!
And Angela will be here in a few hours to spend the day with me…..one of my besties…..trying to get Margie to come down for a while too. Tomorrow we will all be together at Mall of America for more fun adventures at Archivers! Crazy week!
Angela, Me & Margie in Chicago last month…
But I have to say….the thing that is giving me goosebumps right now is that I get to meet and hang out with Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman in a few hours…….she is keynoting the luncheon and I can NOT wait to meet/talk to her!!!! She is one of the bravest girls, ever….if you’ve never read her blog or her story…you gotta….she is amazing! (just like you are!)
Tonight, even more amazing keynotes from amazing women….I PROMISE I WILL TAKE TONS OF PHOTOS TODAY!! I can not believe I didn’t take ONE photo yesterday!!!
The coolest thing is, friends…these are all just girls….just like you and I….just regular girls doing their thing……down to earth, wonderful girls with regular lives, the same dreams, hopes, concerns, issues that we all have…..we are all so much the same….you would love these women….they would love you! Wish we could all be together!! Hope you are having a spectacular day!
Like I said, I sure wish you all were here! I will post lots of photos so it is just like being here!
So much love to you!
