{Creative Estates}

So last night was the start of my attendance at the "Creative Estates" conference....  In case you missed it, it's a conference especially for small businesses and bloggers.  And, lucky enough for me, it's being hosted right here in the Phoenix Metro Valley...although there are MANY out-of-staters here!

So last night we registered and attended the "Cocktails and Cupcakes" event as a "Welcome!"  I had a fabulous time meeting lots of bloggers and moms with their own businesses, so I felt right at home!  I was even lucky enough to win a $50 gift certificate to "The Vintage Pearl!"

Below are some photos from the event last night...not the best pictures, as it was pretty dark by the time I snapped these, and I'm STILL using a point-and-click camera (I know, I know...a DSLR camera is HIGH on my priority list, believe me!  I'm sure it will be even more apparent how quickly I need one after my weekend at this conference is over!)  If you're at all familiar, I'm sure that you can see it is the style of Kim from The TomKat Studio.  Give her a shout out and let her know I sent you!

All attendees also each received a goodie box {it was shaped like a little "estate" - how fun!} upon registering...here is what was in side {a.k.a. a craft woman's dream!}:
goodies from "creative estates" conference

 Included in the box were a felt headband, large memo clip {done in the black, white & yellow theme for "creative estates" this year} from Hoot Designs, Mod Podge, glitter, a "Live Creatively" necklace from "the Vintage Pearl," an absolutely adorable (business) card holder from "taradara," a "pick me up" crafting pen {you gotta google these if you haven't seen them yet! a scrapbooking, crafty one's dream tool!}, and some mini notecards and envelopes from "letterpress paper."

I will definitely be posting more about the conference, including lots of pictures, after the weekend is over!  Stay tuned, and enjoy yourselves a fabulous little weekend!
