My Name is Michelle & I'm a SNAP-aholic {SNAP Blogging Conference Memories}

Pin It!
Oh my goodness, 
are you ready to hear about SNAP?
L to R back row - Kathrine, Cindy from Jenkins Kid Farm
Sara from Clever Pink Pirate, Heather from The Sewing Loft, & me. 

As you can tell from the photos, in between all the cerebral classes like SEO optimization & Google Analytics, we like to have a little fun & get our groove on!

{L o R -Lindsay from Better Afterr, with the girls from U Create, me & Kaylynn at Among the Young}

One of the best parts of going to a conference is meeting some of my favorite bloggers in person - like the fabulous Lindsay from "Better After" {above}. She's so charismatic & cute! 

AND . . . have you ever heard of a little blog called "The Graphics Fairy"? I thought so. It was such a joy to meet Karen - my impression of her is that she is very modest & understated.
{I tried to act a little bit more calm this year when I met my blogging heroes so they didn't have to wonder if they needed to call security.}
{L to R - Tauni, founder of SNAP, me, Julie de Azevedo Hanks - the keynote speaker who also lives in my neighborhood, the darling sisters from Vintage Rose Wraps, me & Karen from The Graphics Fairy}

{The Queen Bee Market has booths with lots of wonderful handmade items - 
and here are my new turquoise shoes that I wore one day of the conference. My feet hurt, but it was worth it! Ha ha.}

To top it all off, we enjoy lots of good food & take home
great prizes & swag. As you can see, I'm a SNAP-aholic!

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment, Lauren. The glasses came with the photo booth, but I've GOT to get me a pair! I agree that their awesome! FYI - SNAP tickets usually sell out on the first day, so don't delay.

      Warmly, Michelle

    1. Hi Amy, Thank you for your message. It was so fun to meet you in person. You are just the best thing since sliced bread. Thank you for not only being an inspiration to us girls - but also for being so sweet & unassuming. I still wear & enjoy my necklace you gave us at last year's SNAP! You made my day by saying that anything to do with me will be on your blog! WAHOO!!!

      Warmly, {a fan, but not REALLY a stalker so don't worry}, Michelle
