SNAP Tidbits & Why I LOVE a Blogging Conference

Pin It!
As promised, 
I wanted to share a bit about SNAP.
{I've spent the past 3 days trying to make a collage without Picnik, & can't seem to produce one. 
But these pics would have looked much more cool displayed that way!}

It was SO. MUCH. FUN!
1st reason I love a blogging conference: 
BLOGGING CELEBRITIES!
I tried not to be too star-struck when I met 
the fabulous "Jen" from Tatertots & Jello . . .
or the lovely "Beth" from Home Stories A 2 Z . . .
OR how about Centsational Girl, "Kate" . . .
AND of course my girl "Shelley" from House of Smith's . . .
I have a big, cheesy grin in each photo because it was such a pleasure to meet these awesome ladies.
PLUS, they taught wonderful workshops.
2nd reason I love a blogging conference: 
SWAG!
We received so many nice gifts -
food, craft supplies, jewelry, etc. WAHOO!
3rd reason I love a blogging conference:
Making New Friends & Seeing Old Ones.

Number 4 -
CREATIVITY!
It's everywhere. Oozing out of the walls & sidewalks.
Great ideas & fearless women abound.
{Women who, BTW, don't mind having their picture taken -
 it's awesome!}

Thanks so much to everyone who made

  5. Ok first off, you look abso beautiful! Didn't you say you are a gramma?????? What!?!?!?! And it needs to be addressed...some of these celebrity bloggers look NOTHING like they do in their profile pictures!!! Mandi looks exactly the same!! Only I didn't expect her to be so tall! Love these pics...I most likely will never have the moola to fly myself out to a blogger conference so it was fun to live vicariously through you!

    1. Thank you, Kari, for your sweet compliment. Yes, Mandi towers over us all & is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met. All the celebs were extremely kind & personable. This conference was only a few miles from where I live, so I was able to sleep at home & attend it "on the cheap". You should come out next year - you can stay in our guest room!

      Warmly, Michelle
