amy, katie and i set up the camp tent with all the pom poms and camp relics we could, and it really did look and feel just like camp. with camp vibes pouring through the yarn, fellow campers who were present that weekend would pop in to check-in and recharge in our little camp away from home. it was really nice to share camp with others who knew nothing of it - perhaps we'll see some new faces or inspire others to create their own craft oasis with friends.
betsy greer!), and more. on top of all that were three major keynotes! gemma correll, vickie howell, and the crafty chica herself kathy cano-murillo gave amazing talks that were funny, inspirational, heartfelt, on-point, and all unique to their own vibrant personalities and individual business and career paths.
throughout the con we were also able to attend DIY sessions and work on embroidery, shibori, macrame, journal making, dog drawing, and painted bangle bracelets, so it was a healthy blend of learning and playing. when we weren't doing that we were on an evening craft crawl, watching wild karaoke, messing with google eyes, hanging in the camp tent, and other such shenanigans.
this year the organizers made the decision to make the conference biannual, so if you were thinking about going, put february 2020 on your calendar! it really is something crafters should experience at some point. i want to thank grace, megan and brit for putting on such a great con. i haven't participated in any shows in ohio, so it was my first time meeting these kick-ass ladies, and it was an absolute pleasure.
fist pumps for pom poms!
