Yesterday, I shared a few images from the Be Crafty I helped host at The Farm Chicks Show earlier this month. A highlight of the workshop was the opportunity to meet Jess (Shop Sweet Lulu) and Serena (The Farm Chicks) in person.
I’ve worked with Jess on various parties the last few years. Her shop is my favorite for finding adorable decorations – not to mention giant balloons! It was so good to finally put a face and voice to her name. I told her I want to come visit her brick and mortar shop – and just sit in it for a while.
Serena blew me away with her attention to detail and organization. The Farm Chicks Show is huge. She was juggling thousands of attendees and 300+ vendors. Each time I saw her, she was moving with grace and a smile on her face. She never came across frazzled or rushed. If you get the chance, read about her story growing up on her blog. She is inspiring and so gifted at what she does.
A key component of Be Crafty Workshops is supporting and sharing small businesses through swag bags. With 150 women in attendance, that is a lot of items for small businesses to send along. Many shops sent a handful of items and the swag bags included a various mix. So much cute stuff!
