Spring Soiree Recap {CO Bloggers Meet-up!}

I realize that I am a little late in posting my recap of our fabulous Colorado Bloggers' Spring Soiree last Saturday. Better late than never, I hope!

I have been itching to share all of the fun details with you.  I am still on a "blogging high."  There is nothing like talking "blogging" with people who understand.  This is definitely my favorite part of blogging--sharing and connecting with other people.

Yes, when I started blogging, I genuinely believed I was the only creative blogger in Colorado!  So imagine my excitement when we had a line (yes, a line!!) form precisely at 1:00.

Shhhh don't tell, but we weren't even quite ready when guests started to arrive with their printed tickets!  (Look at us-- so official!)  Sweet C's Designs created these fun favor bags that we stuffed with paint that Plaid donated for the event.

Kojo Designs (Kirstin) and I joined forces to make some really yummy treats!  I thought we would have oodles left over--but there was not even 1 cupcake left standing.  For the 2 days before the Spring Soiree, I turned my kitchen into a bakery.  More on the cupcake details later.  They were fun (and yummy!).  And don't you love those toppers?  Kirstin made those--and named all of the cupcakes after Colorado places... "Mile High Oreo", "Red Rocks Red Velvet", etc.  Super cute!  By the way, she also designed all of the cute graphics!  She's a rockstar!

After introductions, we had some crafting fun!  Pick Your Plum donated all of the crafting supplies.  They are incredible!  Ladies had the chance to make a moustache necklace, modpodged shamrocks, and painted earrings.

We had some really incredible items donated for giveaways!  I kept punching in numbers on random.org for giveaway winners.  (By the way, who knew that random.org frequently repeats winning numbers!!  Thankfully we had a patient group!)  Better Together (Angela) introduced items and I yelled out those lucky numbers.

So many fabulous items were donated!!  Many thanks to our sponsors for these lovely items.

Oh how I love Ashley!!  Make It and Love It  convinced me that I was creative when I had never even considered that before!  Meeting Ashley in real life was incredible.  She matched her blog perfectly--beautiful and bubbly and creative!  She was generous enough to host a question and answers session so we could pick her brain!  Talk about a class act.

What a beautiful event!

Of course the best part was meeting new friends--or reconnecting with old ones!  It was so fun to see how many people I met whose paths I had crossed before.

Tara (Taradara), Ashley (Make It and Love It), me.

And spending time with some seriously talented ladies was incredible.  I can't wait to do this again!

Me, Ashley {Make It and Love It}, Kirstin {Kojo Designs}, and Angela {Better Together}

So who's ready for our next Colorado event?  Anyone?

Are you loving the photography?  The pictures were taken from the lovely Katie of  KB Digital Designs.  Definitely head on over and check out KB Digital Designs (and like her page on FB!) or enter this giveaway at Make It and Love It for a free photography session with Katie!

It might be silly to call blogging a blessing.  But I have loved the connections and friendships I have made.  Have a great weekend my friends!!
