Oh, SNAP! It's been almost 10 days since I returned from SNAP conference, and I have been dying to share some snippets with you! SNAP was an incredible experience for me! I decided to attend SNAP to celebrate the friends and connections I've built in the blogging community over the last 2 1/2 years. I have created some really dear friendships with blogging friends. To have all of these girls in the same place was just plain amazing.
So 2 weeks ago, my sweet husband patiently drove me to Utah (Thanksgiving Point, to be exact). It worked out beautifully so we had several family events in Utah the very same week as SNAP. I had the chance to see my entire extended family plus my blogging friends--all in one busy week!
Unfortunately, the unthinkable happened. My camera took a tumble out of the car and my best lens broke just days before leaving town. So I took far fewer photos than I would have liked. Yet another reason to return next year for SNAP 2013! But I do have a few snippets to share!
Thanksgiving Point was a stunning location. And those tulips! I couldn't get enough of those tulips!
My brand new business cards had arrived just in time. Phew.
I could hardly wait to check in and get started!
Everywhere I went, I heard the same comment, "I love your bag!!"
The amazing Kellie from Nest of Posies made this bag just in time for SNAP, and I am still crushing on how cute this is!
These gals were my room-mates and pals. LOVE them! And we totally rocked the Homes.com photo booth!
The food was delicious! Is it sad/slightly pathetic that I judge almost all events by the food?! Thanksgiving Point really knows how to throw a party! And welcome to my world, Velata fondue (a new product from Scentsy.) YUM! Those chocolate-covered strawberries were definitely a highlight for me.
One of my favorite parts about SNAP was the make-and-take crafts. I'm a hands-on type of girl! After doing some sitting, I needed to CREATE! I made this cute glasses pouch. Yeah. I love it.
It was definitely a meeting of creative minds. The classes were jampacked full of talented speakers (many of my blogging idols!), and everywhere I turned--I found someone else I was dying to meet! I only wish I had more time with every one of these people!
Kami was one of my favorite people to chat with! I have always admired Kami in the blogging world!
And my local Colorado crew! (We're claiming Heather as a Coloradan because she grew up here!)
Oh how I love these girls. And their dance moves. How had I NEVER met The Crafting Chicks until now?!
I love these sweet ladies so, so much! Even though they out-dressed me. They looked so glam!
Our final night at SNAP! It ended too soon. There were so many more incredible women I didn't snap a photo with.
Ohhh and did I mention the Queen Bee Market? I bought some totally cute goodies there.
It was even worth the 2 hours standing in line to check out!
Most of all I just feel blessed. Meeting with women who "get" me and what I do is just amazing.
Until next year....
