Signed, Sealed, and Delivered

Yep.. I have sent off my registration form and check and now I am officially going to The Creative Connection Event in Minneapolis, MN
in September!! This is an amazing 3 day workshop filled with art, inspiration, and wise business advice for the entrepreneur. Best yet it is hosted by Jo Packham (Where Women Create), and Nancy Soriano (former editor-in-chief of Country Living Magazine).

and if that is not enough.. some of the featured artists on hand to teach workshops are Betz White, Jennifer Murphy, Kaari Meng, Pat Murphy, and Wendy Addison.

Owning a gift boutique may seem like glamorous work to a few but the reality is I don't take home a paycheck. It ALL goes back into The Flea. So I promised myself to take at least one fun, business related trip every year. I went to Portland one year for the Art & Soul retreat, New York after that for the Country Living Fair, and do you remember this past February??
I wonder what new people and new things I will be introduced to this time!!

Ah...Good for YOU! I will be in Minneapolis at the same time for a large paper crafts event. :) Maybe I'll see you at the Mall of America! Any chance you'll drag Jenni with you?

ooh, I want to go! Now, to figure out how I can squeeze it in between my early September beach trip and my later September wedding trip--all three will be sans children.
hmmm...What are you doing next year? Looks like you have two business trips this year!

I just read your post to the CC group and just had to come check out your blog. I live in Macon and will be vending at CC as well. Hopefully I can make a trip to Newnan before then to visit your shop!
