My Snap Conference 2012 recap!


This past weekend, I attended the Snap, Creativity at your Fingertips conference in Lehi, Utah! It was a really fun event filled with a slew of amazing and talented women (well, mainly women, I think there were a handful of guys in attendance). I went as a representative for iLoveToCreate, but I also was there as a blogger too, since I do both (for here and my other site FontCrafts).

I was really excited cause I got to meet up with some of my crafty friends from the Crafterminds group. We’ve created a tight bond on Facebook and Twitter and it was nice to meet everyone in real life! It’s always nice to get to break out of the internet box! From left to right: Karen from The Graphics Fairy, Heather from The Sewing Loft, Jennifer from Always in Wonder, Sara of Mom Endeavors, Katie of Sweet Rose Studios, Amy of Decor Hacks, Viv from the V Spot, me, and Heidi from Honeybear Lane. Thanks Katie for the photo.


There were lots of cool sessions to attend. The one above was all about creative collaboration and featured Kim from Today’s Creative Blog, Heather from Whipperberry, Jamielyn from i Heart Naptime, and Brooke of the Crafting Chicks. I also attended a session on SEO, from book to blog, and video editing.


One other thing I saw a lot of was some stylin’ and profilin’ by the attendees. Some of them were dressed to the nines (me, I was dressed for comfort)


I went home with a LOT of contacts, I bet I got over a 100 blogger business cards. I have a lot of following up to do!


And the best part of all? I got to drive around in a Crown V baby! Talk about stylin’ and profilin’!

Overall it was a great trip filled with amazing women! I give it two thumbs way up!

Until next time Swellions!

Tomorrow morning, I wake up early am (actually, just 6 hours away and I’m not yet done packing) to go to the Snap conference in Utah!  I’m really excited to meet up with craft bloggy friends and make new ones at this event. It’s all about craft blogging and is going to be loaded with workshops and speakers from today’s hottest craft blogs!

I’m super stoked and not sure what quite to expect. I know I’ll be much more nervous when I actually get there. I’ve just been so busy leading up to it, I haven’t had a chance to process it yet!


One of the things I’m really excited about is the Queen Bee Market going on Friday night and Saturday day. There’s going to be some fun craft vendors there, so I can’t wait to see the goodies! I love me a good craft fair. If you’re in the Salt Lake City area, stop by, this event is free and open to the public!

So better get packin’ and I’ll share updates on twitter and instagram as @swelldesigner and @ilovetocreate.  Please follow me for all the blog fun!

Until next time Swellions!
