Finding Inspiration & Connection at Craftcation

This past weekend, I went to the Craftcation conference run by Dear Handmade Life in Ventura, California.


At this four-day conference, I met hundreds of other creative small business owners, took business classes, and enjoyed learning and trying new crafts. The community created at the conference is unmatched; everyone I met was welcoming, supportive, and encouraging, not to mention talented and knowledgeable.

Finding a community of folks with similar mindsets, interests, and businesses was amazing. I was able to learn so much. What did I learn, you ask? Well:

On top of all of that, I also made an embroidered nametag, supported fellow makers in the Craftcation Pop-Up Shop, learned how to make a macrame statement necklace, and had some time to explore the amazing town of Ventura. I walked away with lots of new maker and small biz friends, and I can't wait to tell you all about them in the coming weeks!

More than anything, I came away with tons of new ideas and perspectives. Watch for changes to the website and our offerings, and a little rebranding coming soon too... 

And, as always, tell me what you want to see from us! Drop me an email letting me know what you'd like to see next or what you want to hear more about.
