CREATIVE ESTATES

Wow, what a fun conference! Creative Estates is a crafty/blogger conference that was held here in Gilbert, AZ this year. I had the pleasure of giving some tips on photography on a panel with the AMAZING Laura Winslow from Laura Winslow Photography and Kami Bigler from No Biggie!

It was SO fun helping and giving everyone tips - I even got to help a few lightbulbs go off :) Definitely the highlight!

However I was so worried about what I’d say/teach about that I didn’t think about all the inspiration my mind would be wrestling with over the 2 day conference. Does anyone else have the problem that you LOVE inspiration so much that you hate it? LOL My mind was just going crazy. The first thing I need to do (and have yet to do) is get ONE notebook to house all my ideas short & long term thanks to advice from Becky Higgins.

I had the pleasure of meeting some bloggers that I was already online friends with like Canela from Cinnamon Sticks Boutique and Shey from Shey [B] (neither of which I got a picture with) and I left with a TON more.

Here are some pics the fabulous ladies of the conference took of me in action (that’s code for making weird faces and not having good posture)

I’ll share some more pics as I get a hold of them!
