Today I’m announcing the winner of the Whippy Cake adorableness … and … doing another giveaway!
Because it’s fun.
So first … congratulations to Leslie Alexander in Monticello, IL! Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll hook you up. You will love adorning your head with some Whippy Cake.
Last month I did a post (“Creative Ambition”) about those who have creative ideas and entrepreneurial spirits. One person I mentioned is SheyB, the camera strap girl. She recently came up with the idea of bringing creative entrepreneurs to one place for a big conference. This idea is becoming a reality now and registration for Creative Estates is open. If you’re interested in reading a little about Shey’s inspiration, check out this blog post she wrote – “A Conference Dream Becomes a Reality”.
What is Creative Estates?
Anyone with a creative mind would enjoy this conference. Scrapbookers, photographers, sewers, knitters/crocheters, painters, general crafters, blog designers, jewelry artists, writers … anyone with a creative side that loves to do something with it. Those who are in the business of selling stuff they make or offering services to others. Or those who are thinking about embarking on a journey such as that. It will be like one big block party with crafters of every kind. Held in April 2011 in beautiful Arizona — lucky for me, that’s my own backyard.
There will be speakers and classes and workshops and yes — a Handmade Market, which will feature many amazing handmade shops. I am sooo looking forward to that.
I will be there. I have accepted the invitation to speak at Creative Estates and look forward to meeting some of you there.
Which brings me to my next point: YOU.
You may be feeling that you need to be at Creative Estates. Many of my readers fit in this category and so I imagine many of you would love the opportunity to come & learn & be inspired & gain insight from other creatives. Be sure to visit the official Creative Estates blog for all the conference scoop.
Shey is giving away a ticket to Creative Estates to one of my readers! The ticket includes admission to the conference, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, a dinner/party, and Creative Workshops. Leave a comment with your name … and … mention your business or craft or area of interest. Link to your site or blog (if you want) if you have one for your business. Not because it has anything to do with being chosen (that will be totally random), but because I’d like to get to know you a little better. I’d love to know what you’re up to. Or what you’d like to be up to. ; )
