Day 4 (and final day) of The Creative Connection EventPosted: 09/19/2010
The Creative Connection Event is now over. It was not a success, for me, anyway. And not for the vast majority of vendors I spoke with. There just weren’t the numbers that we had all planned and prepped for. I think in two years this event will be a must-visit, and even next year it’ll be highish on the list. But this year it was, unfortunately, a bust. I made some awesome connections (hey From Out of the Cracks, Wynzia, Suz and Roo, and J.Jewels Designs!), and I’m putting that in my pocket and going home.
One other big perk to the entire weekend was when *the* planner of The Creative Connection and all-around cool woman, Jo Packham, bought a set of Rockin’ Roll’er Coasters and a Somewhere Else print from me! AND she signed up for my newsletter mailing list. Swoon! It was very exciting.
Here’s Jo and Nancy Soriano speaking to attendies at the cocktail party Friday night, and a shot of our crazy group at said party. We had some good laughs!
Following are some photos of my table set-up. The lights in the venue were crappy, so they don’t look all that hot.
