Hello friends! It has been a very busy few months for me, with a lot of new happenings to report, but first up, School House Craft! I had previously interned for them at the end of Summer in 2011 and recently became involved again this year.
First, a little background info: School House Craft (SHC) is an AWESOME resource for small business entrepreneurs and crafty creators of all kinds. Every time around I leave feeling super inspired and energized by everyone I meet and all of the wonderful information I learn. The organization is lead by Andrea Porter and Marlo Miyashiro, two very knowledgeable and awesome ladies!
Just a couple weeks ago, they held their first ever Blogger’s Summer Camp. A one day conference focused on blogging featuring two panels of super awesome and experienced bloggers. I helped ahead of time spreading the word about the conference, and brainstorming/creating decorations for the “camp”. Helping with this part was a lot of fun for me! I love themed events/parties and decorating for them, so this was a real treat.
The conference was held at the Mount Baker Community Club, a wonderful venue tucked away in the South Seattle neighborhood of Mount Baker. The building itself was established in 1909 and has been maintained beautifully since. Flooded with natural light from large windows and natural wood floors- the club house really helped carry the camp theme charm!
On the day of the conference following setup, I was snapping pictures and live-tweeting the event. (I love tweeting!) It was so much fun seeing the attendees positive reactions to the decorations and space, and also hearing their feedback in live time via twitter. Did I also mention that Marlo made the best s’mores dessert, ever?! So yummy and such perfect sweet for camp!
Overall the day was awesome! At the end of the event, I was inspired and excited to kick start my blog again. I’m also very much looking forward to their upcoming annual conference in September!
Check out the wrap up posted on the SHC blog featuring some of my tweets and photos.
