I am packing up and getting ready to head out to St. Paul for the week to attend Jo Packham's Creative Connection Event. Last year I met so many creative and inspiring people that I am really looking forward to it all over again. This year, I am teaching two different classes with Wendy Addison: the Bibelot Charme Workshop and the Boite de Bijoux Workshop - both include a beautiful piece of handmade jewelry (taught by moi) and an embellished jewelry box (taught by Wendy).
Marcia Ceppos, of Tinsel Trading, will also be in our workshops running a petite Tinsel Trading Emporium - so you can pick up all your favorite vintage crafting supplies!
Who else is going to be at the event - or rather - who isn't! The event is attracting more and more people from all different creative fields: Charlotte Lyons, Brenda Schweder, Betz White, Shea Fragoso and Debbie Murray, Jenny Heid and Aaron Nieradka, and Heather Bailey - are just a handful of some of the teachers teaching creative workshops. Then you've got Vogue Knitting, MaryJane's Farm and BlogHer also pitching in and offering different panels, classes and demonstrations. It's sure to be a fun-filled few days - there is still time to make a reservation if you just can't miss it!
