Crafty Bloggers Unite

by Julie Kohl on April 30, 2012

One of the greatest things about blogging is the connections I have made with other bloggers.  And not just online…in REAL life too!  Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend a gathering of Crafty Bloggers sponsored by CraftGossip.com and EK Success.

I got to spend Saturday afternoon meeting and getting to know 24 crafty bloggers!  It just so happenes that 4 of the Craft Gossip editors live in the Little Rock area.  They decided to host a luncheon to bring together bloggers in the southern region of the US.  While most of the girls were from Arkansas we did have one girl from Missiouri, one from Tennessee and even one from Virginia! The talent of the group was amazing.  Many of the girls have turned thier crafty love into profitable businesses.  We even had several people who have authored books.  The crafty interests were vast! From sewing, to quilting, jewelry making, to knitting, to several crafters who like me are “Jane-of-all-trades.”

We played some crafty games, ate some good food at Trio’s Restaurant and crafted.  We laughed and even shed some tears.  We celebrated and shared stories of our best and worst crafting experiences.  It was a wonderful and exciting day that went by too fast!

Crafters are a funny bunch.  We get just as excited over a home improvement store as we do a craft store.  And who doesn’t enjoy a pile of mismatched craft supplies?  We had fun raiding the pile and using all kinds of goodies to give “make-overs” to the photos of our Craft Gossip editors!

The most exciting part of the day came in the last 30 minutes or so when we got our bag of swag!  EK Success hooked each of us up with a HUGE assortment bag of different supplies that they offer!  We seriously took home over $250.00 worth of some really cool stuff!  Do you wanna see what I got? I know you do!  Here it is along with some of my thoughts on a few of the products.

Can you believe all of this stuff? It was such an amazing assortment of goodies!  Here is a list (with links!) of all of the stuff we got.

Isn’t this a TOTALLY amazing assortment of supplies?!  My summer will be filled with all kinds of crafty adventures!  My three favorite product were:

K&Company – Engraved Garden 12×12 Specialty Paper Pad

Inkadinkado – My Recipes Card
Jolee’s Boutique – Lace Adhesive Borders
Thank you EK Success!
Disclosure:  I was given a free lunch and all of the above items from EK Success and this post was required in return for receiving the items.  My opinions of individual items (if discussed) is my own and was not influenced by the fact that I received the items for free.
