I’m SUPER excited to announce that I’ve been chosen as a Michaels Makers for the 2nd year in a row. Yep, I get to work with the Michaels Stores doing amazing projects for the next year! Not only do I get to be a Michaels Makers (along with many extremely talented bloggers) but they started the first ever Michaels Makers summit. The Summit consisted of a fabulous 3 days of visiting the Napa Valley, seeing the beautiful surroundings and meeting everyone involved with Michaels Makers!! AND let’s not forget the beautiful decor, food and CRAFTING!!! You’ve got to check out all the pictures.
But, the MOST FABULOUS part of this is…
Michael’s and Creativebug are offering you FREE access to the Creativebug classes until August 22! Michaels has teamed up with Creativebug® to bring you four video classes, free for a limited time and specially selected to do what we learned at this year’s Summit. Hurry, classes are only free until August 22! Click here for all the details. They have an incredible line-up of classes. The four classes are: weaving, watercolor, paper flowers and image transfers.
First up at the Summit was a welcome dinner held at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch. This beautiful organic farm is located in the heart of Napa Valley.
Delicious food and the sweetest group of friends!
