This past weekend I headed off to my second Craftcation Conference in Ventura, Ca! This time I had my two lovely friends Holly Bobisuthi and Dianna LaFerry with me. We headed out on Wednesday afternoon in the middle of a crazy hail storm and braved the traffic north to the wonderful beach side community of Ventura.
Craftcation is a wonderful way to connect with the handmade community and a great opportunity to learn new things and refresh your approach to things you may think are old hat for you. I make a point to sign up for the business, marketing and social media oriented classes because quite frankly, I can make things till the cows come home 😉 Learning how to represent myself online and the nitty gritty details like how to get the most of wordpress and social media are things I continue to strive to learn and push myself to get better at.
One of my favorite aspects of Craftcation is that it is held in a smallish town at the Crown Plaza Hotel right on the beach. You can walk to everything and all of the views out of the hotel are just stellar.
Sunday was one final breakfast in the room and one final photo of that amazing view! We headed downstairs to catch the closing talk and one more session. It was a blur and we got in our last goodbyes to old and new friends from across the country. The girls and I headed off on one last adventure before we parted ways- more on that in my next post.
I’m so excited about all of the awesome things I learned and the amazing people I met! I have a to-do list a mile long and so much to follow up on in addition to running our audio company and continuing to work on projects I already have in progress. Wish me luck in the upcoming months as I tackle it all! and then come back to it again when I get sidetracked by life. Thanks to the best housemates ever Holly and Dianna, thanks so much for coming on such a fun adventure!
