It’s finally ready, the last Creative Estates recap post that you’ll see from me. If you missed it earlier, I did a sneak peek here and an outfit post + advice here. As you know, I am a picture queen, I bring my DSLR camera with me everywhere and anywhere and take pics like it’s my J-O-B (I wish!) haha. I took over 400 pictures from the weekend, spent some time doing some minor editing in Lightroom and am ready to share the rest. I had to consolidate a bunch into collage form so that this post wouldn’t take 10 minutes to scroll through, you can thank me later. So without further ado, in true Sandy style commentary… here we go!
There was a lot of silliness going on this weekend, Aisle to Aloha really brought it out in me.
And the Handmade Market? Words can’t even describe how amazing it was. Not to mention, I made a purchase or two or three or more… Featured here are Olive Blue, Vintage Rose Wraps, Rock-A-Bow, Flawed Perfection Jewelry, Much Love Illy, Tara Dara, Oh, Sweet Joy!, Amy Cornwell and Whippycake.
Here’s some Whippycake headband love, which we’re turning into a fun project, more on that later! 😉
And finally meeting many of the ladies I have talked to online or met through blogging. 🙂 Whippycake, Brassy Apple, SheyB, Apearantly Sew, Be Healthy, Well and Inspired, ChicGeek Designs, Ordy and Joon, Food, Wine and Mod Podge, Craftee Mcgee, Freckles Crafts and Funky Vintage Lovely!
Finally, we come full circle again, with stuffing our faces with delicious cupcakes. Like I said, bloggers eat well. And, Much Love, Illy was the only person I had actually met in real life before the conference, so it was great to see her again and grow our friendship. 🙂
If you missed out this year, then don’t forget to mark your calendars for next year… the 2012 Creative Estates conference will take place in Salt Lake City, UT from April 19-22, 2012!
