FORK AND TALK EVENT FOR 2012

 

I have got to start off by thanking EK Success for sponsoring this wonderful event!! I’m sure some of you were following me last year and read about me going to Little Rock, AR to the first ever Fork and Talk event, but for those of you who don’t know and for those who do I want to say it just keeps getting better and better!! The requirements for attending the event are that you have to have a blog and blog about the event after you get back home.

There were twenty women who attended the event last year and the same amount this year. We started off the event by getting to know each other. There were ladies there from Arkansas of course but there were also a few from out of state. It was a great time of fellowship with other women who were bloggers and crafty and creative. One of the fun things that we all did together was a makeover of the Craftgossip Editor who was sitting at our table. Our table had Scarlett Burroughs who is the Quilting Editor for Craftgossip. I’ve got to say our table WON again! Fork and talk 2012Scarlett is the second lady from the right. She’s very pretty and very tolerant of us making her over, or at least making a picture of her over. The particular thing that got us the win was the tiny plastic “fork” earrings that we put on her. LOL All of the people at the winning table got to pick a gift from a table in the front of the room. I just wasn’t fast enough to grab this beautiful table cover that’s around 50 years old. :0(

Fork and talk  2012  But I was able to grab a wonderful pillow kit that involves crewel embroidery. It would make a terrific gift for yourself or someone else. EK Success was just so generous again this year and we all came away from the event with lots and lots of crafty goodies and a lasting remembrance of a great time with friends. We also made a cute to go coffee cup cozie and coaster from a kit that EK Success provided and gave a review on it.

A fun and informative time was had by all and EK Success will be all of our favorite go to company when we need some crafty items and kits.

Fork and talk2012 I do so hope I get to enjoy the “Fork and Talk” again next year because the food is great and the whole event is just fantastic!
