The Creative Connection Event - AWESOME!!

My feet hurt, my back aches, but, I had an absolutely amazing time at the The Creative Connection event!!
 First of all, it was like a who's who in the creative world! The keynote speakers, the fantastic workshops, the panels, and the food - man, the food! The freebies came from everywhere, and the sponsors gave away everything from Cricuts to coffee!
After I attended last year, I knew that I so wanted to go again- and when I was asked to speak on the panel for Blogher, it was a deal breaker! Erica Mauter, (a fellow Minnesotan and fantastic moderator!), Stacie Tamaki, and Kathy Cano-Murillo were all amazing and are my new bffs! 

 You can read the Liveblog post for our panel: HERE
How often do you get to share the "stage" with someone like Kathy? She is a rock star in the creative world, and there is a special place in my heart for someone who writes a novel with the title, "Waking Up in the Land of Glitter"- (my poor husband does that every day!)
I have so much more to say about The Creative Connection event, but I've decided to do several posts over  the next few days - otherwise I go into "inspiration overload"!
But, I came away from this conference with a couple of sure things - I need to go shopping for new clothes (talk about fashionistas-wow!) and I have to take better care of myself, because I need to live a long, long time to fit in everything I want to do, and become everything I want to be when I "grow up"!
