The Creative Connection Event
Mark your calendars! The Creative Connection Event is taking place in Minneapolis the same dates as the Junk Bonanza. The Creative Connection was recently founded by Nancy Soriano, former editor of Country Living magazine and Jo Packman Editor in Chief of Where Women Create.
The Creative Connection brings together artists, business owners, bloggers and those who have the desire to be creative for an opportunity to learn, market and create! There will be daily hands-on classes in jewelry making, knitting, painting, sewing and journaling taught by industry leaders as well as panel discussions on how to use technology and social media to market your business. The event will even feature a "Smart Bar" for one-on-one consult by experts in the field and a Handmade Market for indulging your shopping desires!
Keynote speakers at the event will include Amy Butler, a designer known for printed fabrics for home, fashion and craft as well as MaryJane Butters, editor of MaryJanes Farm magazine.
I will be attending the Thursday evening cocktail party and authors book signing event. I am honored to be featured in the August issue of Where Women Create and have been invited to sign copies of the magazine (along with other featured women) at a special Where Women Create table.
Two great events on the same weekend makes for an ideal girls getaway and worth the travel from either near or far. You can find more information on the Junk Bonanza and The Creative Connection websites.
I just returned from junking in What Cheer Iowa and Kimball South Dakota! Having packed my long underwear away for the season, I had to buy a new pair along with a stocking hat for the 50 mile hour winds and chilly temps in SD. The junk was worth it!
