This past Friday Abigail and I headed to meet friends at the Pinner’s Conference in Ontario, California. Dear friends Mary and Tanya attended last year in Arizona and highly recommended it. While my expectations were high there were so many fun things to see. Of course, being with friends and family was the highlight of our time. This is a bit of a long post but many of you have inquired and I thought I’d share some sights and experiences we had. I’ll be sharing a favorite product I found. Oh dreamy! A few things below . . .
~ Our classes were okay but an hour sure goes by quickly. Talking among friends, the key was really the teacher, their talent to teach and their generosity that made the class. You can be an awesome maker but its not guaranteed you’ll make a great teacher.
~ There will be a handful of vendors there to ‘sell’ and didn’t have anything to do with Pinterest. Nonetheless, the shopping experience was pretty good.
~ We saw a lot of stenciling, macrame, some make up, food, wood signs, metal arts and chalk signs. There wasn’t a representation of mixed media. Might just have to change that next year.
~ There was a lot of making going on. Most make and takes were reasonably priced and fun. There was something for everyone.
~ Abigail is great with her hair and great at braiding. She enjoyed getting her hair braided which included a little extra pizzazz of color and style.
So without further ado, below are some fun sights from the show floor and classes. I’ll list vendors if possible.
