. I attended the most amazing event ever!! Who would have thought it? Anyway, last month "Craft Gossip" put out a call for Little Rock, AR bloggers or those who could drive to Little Rock for a Fork and Talk event which was going to be sponsored by EK Success Brands. Well let me tell you, IT WAS AWESOME! I submitted an application and received an invitation from the Design Team from Little Rock.
We all met up at Trio's Restaurant in Little Rock:
We had a wonderful selection of dishes to try on our menu. I was very impressed with my selection which was Quiche Lorraine and salad. Ummm, yummy.
There were 20 crafty bloggers who met at the “Fork and Talk”. I met a lot of women, who I'm hoping will become great friends. The creativity in the room was electrifying! All of the people at the luncheon had some sort of craft/art that they participated in everyday.
Can you guess how many buttons and bobs are in this jar? We played a few games of which this was one and I guessed the closest. Woo Hoo! I got to keep the jar with the stuff inside.
Working as a group, each group decorated a Dollar Store hat with stuff that was provided to us. The group I was in picked a Mardi Gras theme and our hat won! Another gift!
Scarlett. She is also the quilting guru for Craft Gossip, She is a very talented and friendly lady and I'm very glad that I was able to make her acquaintance. The four Craft Gossip Editors who planned, executed and attended this wonderful event were, Anne Weaver (Sewing Editor), Denise Felton (Needlework Editor), Stacie Hooder (Jewelry Making Editor), and Scarlett Burroughs (Quilting Editor). There were bloggers from all over and since I had traveled one of the longest distances I received……. you guessed it, another gift!
Here are some photos from this magnificent event:
When everything wound down and the wonderful day was about over, we received all of these FANTASTIC THINGS TO TAKE HOME WITH US! THANK YOU EK SUCCESS BRANDS!!
