Creativity is Key!

More on my awesome trip!

One of the first classes we took was with a creative woman who owns a business, I learned so much! That particular class was all about photo styling for your business and how to put your own spin on things you make and sell.

"The Market" was an experience all on it's own! It was a very large, (huge!) convention center room filled with vendors. These business sold everything from bottle cap jewelry (which I post a picture of) to elaborate quilts, most of everything was handmade, love it! There was so much to look at. It was scheduled to open it's doors at 1:30, but people were lining up to get in at 1, so it was obviously a huge deal.

On Saturday, our classes didn't start until 11, so we slept in! Isn't sleep a beautiful thing? At 11:30 we finally left the hotel, we found our class which was "Healthy but Delicious Goodies With Uber Creative Packaging." We peaked in, but there was absolutely no room and up on the wall was pictures of really healthy food. I don't know what we were really expecting, but we are not the veggie burger, tofu type, not that we have anything against people who do like that stuff, but we love meat! So for that reason and the fact that we were about an hour late, we went to look for another class.

We looked and looked, finally we found a class that was using "Mod Podge" (kind of like runny Elmer's glue), paint, and glitter, which is right up my alley. We asked to join the class and we were creating in no time! It turned out to be the coolest blessing ever, we had so much fun!
