As promised here are some pictures of the make and takes at the Summit of AWESOME!
Here is a little felt birdie that I created with the help of Mary Jane's Attic. She had everything ready to go for us and it took about 20 minutes. I was quite impressed with myself. I have only attempted needle felting once before and wasn't nearly as successful as I was today. I don't love my little birds huge beak, but oh well.
These two pictures are the front and back of my decorated mole skin journal. Can I just tell you how much I LOVE moleskin journals! They are super handy and I feel like I have one lying around everywhere to help me contain my creativity :)
The stamps used are from Craft Pudding and aren't they TOTALLY adorable!!! I think she is going to have a booth set up selling some of her stuff tomorrow so guess who is going to be first in line?
Today was super eventful and I loved every minute of it. I felt right at home with all the other crafty people out in this world. Many of my close friends aren't crafters themselves so it is very rare that I get to share what I love to do with people who know what I am talking about.
I went to 2 info. sessions today. One was on creating a social network through all the wonderful technology tools (one that they discussed was blogging so I felt as though I was a little ahead of the gang... for once, haha). Then in the afternoon I went to a session on how to photograph your items. It was super helpful and had great tips which I hope to post for everyone early on next week.
I am learning so much and having a blast along the way. Tomorrow I have two more information session and a few more NEW make and take opportunities so I will be posting again to let you know what is up.
take care mucho,
