I am super-excited to begin sharing the ooooodles of information that I was able to get my crafty little hands on in St. Louis at my FIRST EVER Close to My Heart Regional Event. First, however, I have to share the heart of my adventure--the wonderful consultants that I was able to meet!
Here I am in the middle of two of my former Facebook friends. I say former, because now they are also REAL friends! I had an amazing time getting to know these beautiful women in the short amount of time we had together. Shelly is in the pink and a consultant in Minnesota. Dana is one of my Damask Diva teammates and a consultant in Iowa. Here we are on Saturday on a break from classes. I was lucky enough to get to room with each of these gals, and as a result stayed up far toooo late chatting into the dark, lol! Thank you, Dana and Shelly for making my first Regional a memorable one! From lost room keys, to getting stuck in rush hour traffic on our way a few blocks to dinner. From wandering the streets of the Taste of St. Louis, to finding just the right magnet to bring home to my fridge, I will certainly cherish the time we spent together giggling and creating. Just be careful in those parking garages, and watch out for the round cement columns! Oh, yes--and never, EVER take your waiter's picture!!! ;)
Next up in my Regional Celebration series: Roomie Gifts! Tune in tomorrow for more!
