How was everyone’s Easter!? Good I hope!
Yesterday got so busy for us that I wanted to post a fun little Easter picture or two today, before it was too late. Last week we had the opportunity to go down and visit one of my favorite photographers Emilie, from Photo by Emilie, who does an annual live bunny photo shoot during Easter. My girls were just gushing over how adorable these tiny bunnies were, and I was dying over how adorable the photos turned out!
I’ll be talking a lot more about Emilie, her classes and some other great tips later on, but just wanted to share these cute shots that she and I took, for now.
Speaking of Photo by Emilie, if you’re attending the amazingly-awesome SNAP conference next weekend then you’re in for a real treat! Emilie is one of our photography experts who will be teaching the photography class: Oh SNAP! – Learning how to go from ‘point and hope’ to ‘point and shoot’ with your digital SLR camera.
You DON’T want to miss out on this class, it’s going to be SUPER informative and hands on.
I can’t even tell you HOW excited I am getting for SNAP! eeek! I have had lots of nervous, giddy energy these past few days, as I gather up the last few supplies and details for the Home/DIY blogger classes! If you’re attending and need to see a list of classes with speakers, you can head on over to the SNAP site and take a peek at what sessions we’re offering.
To get everyone as psyched as I am, I wanted to just give you a few quick highlights of some fun things to look forward to next week at the conference.
Sponsors + Giveaways = Excitement!
We have TONS of fabulous sponsors lined up and are so thankful for each and every one of them for being involved to make SNAP a success! The SNAP team knows that the best way to take business relationships and blogging opportunities to the next level, is to really get out and network with the types of brands who you want to associate yourself with, face to face. And at SNAP, we’ll be giving you lots of chances to mingle with some of the best companies out there!
Not to mention that a lot of these fabulous sponsors have also generously donated amazing prizes for us to giveaway to our attendees as well! Things like:
* 4 sewing machines
* 4 Silhouette Cameo machines
* Blogger redesign
* WordPress redesign
* Discounts to some favorite sites and shops
* Party goods
* Craft Books
Ya, we’re not messin’ around 🙂 These are some seriously great items! – and no worries if you’re not a big giveaway winner… we’ve got a swag bag filled with gobs of fabulous gifts for EVERY conference attendee that will rock your socks off!
Queen Bee Market + SNAP = A Shoppers Paradise!
One of the events we’re MOST looking forward to at SNAP is the Queen Bee Market! If you’ve never been to this creative shopping extravaganza… then you don’t know what you’re missing. There will be over 40 creative vendors selling their beautiful designs in ONE spot! For a full list of vendors you can head over to the Queen Bee Market page and check them out on the left hand side.
The best part is, you DON’T have to have a ticket to the SNAP conference to shop at the Queen Bee Market! The doors are open to the public both Friday and Saturday. So if you couldn’t make it to SNAP this year, but still want to meet and mingle with some of your fellow bloggers, Friday night between 7-9pm, will be the time you’ll definitely want to show up!
If you just want to get some shopping done with a few girlfriends, all while enjoying the beauty of Thanksgiving Point, during the popular Tulip Festival… then Saturday will be the best day for you!
And last but definitely not least…
New Friends + Music = DANCE PARTY!
Okay, I might be a bit partial to this event because I was the one who booked the awesome DJ, threw in the extra lighting package and bumped up the sound equipment to accommodate a rowdy crowd of 250+ dancing bloggers… but HEY! … who doesn’t love a good dance party with their girlfriends, to relieve that last bit of stress before they head back home and get thrown right back into the daily-life-grind!?
…that’s what I thought.
Okay, so do you see why I’m literally having a hard time containing myself!? So much amazing stuff is coming up and I couldn’t be more anxious/excited for next weekend! I’ve already gotten tweets and emails from a few readers and fellow bloggers who have told me they will be coming, and I can’t wait to meet everyone in person!
…till next weekend!
