Yesterday I (Kirsten) got to spend the afternoon with some FANTASTIC ladies from the blogosphere, an event that was put on by Paige and Jo from WHERE WOMEN CREATE. They put on the craftiest event call THE CREATIVE CONNECTION which is now a part of BLOG HER HANDMADE that is held in St. Paul, MN from Thursday, September 15 — Saturday, September 17. I. WANT. TO. GO. SO. DANG. BAD. It’s like the mecca of craftiness. I SO wish my fellow chicks and all of you could have been there with us. There couldn’t be a nicer & more personable group of successful and sweet ladies. Take a second to look at their sites because each one of their sites will just blow your mind with the amounts of inspiration bursting from their seams.

We also got a tour of their studios at WHERE WOMEN CREATE. This place is filled with the coolest stuff. They were so gracious. This is JO, she is such an accomplished women, and SO DOWN TO EARTH. It was so fun to meet her.
These little tiny books were one of my favorite details. Mason (my 5 year-old date who was an absolute champ loved these too.
THIER AMAZING ARCHIVES
Don’t mind this girl….SHELLY from THE HOUSE OF SMITHS, if you haven’t been to her blog…YOU MUST. She is AMAZING, and she was goofy with me, that’s about all I can ask from anybody. And I really wanted to steal her camera strap.
It was so fun to see them in their element. She LOVES what she does, and I love that.
Ribbon never looked so pretty over the exposed brick. LOVE.
and my sweet Mason and I (completely tuckered out at this point). These ladies were so sweet.
Cheers to our new friends
