  1. McKenzie Guymon says:

    I love them all! I would love to work with Silhouette though!

  2. Wow. That’s an impressive list of sponsors – – way to go, ladies! I like that I know so many of these companies, but still was able to find a lot of new groups to check out.

    I’ve been getting back into sewing and just bought some Simplicity patterns, so I’d love to work with them. Ikea would be wonderful, too (and my house would thank me!).

    As far as new to me, I’m pretty smitten by the Kaboo Storage from Durham Brands.

    Thanks for the chance & best wishes on a fantastic event! I look forward to all of the coverage and living vicariously through the lucky gals attending. :)

  3. I bet this swag bag is awesome – thanks for being so generous to those of us who can’t come! :)

  4. Would totally love to work with Silhouette! Their machine is awesome!

  5. I’d love to work with Scentsy. I use their product already and really like it. Much safer than candles.

    • I love working for this company! You should join! It is an amazing sisterhood (and a few brothers…lol) If you dont have a consultant..you can feel free to message me for info! If you do, Don’t wait…sign up today for Scentsy and get in on the ground floor for Velata! It launches May 1st!

  6. Traci Severson says:

    Wowzers….a really impressive list of vendors you are working with. SNAP sounds like it would be wonderful – so sad I am missing it!

    • Traci Severson says:

      I would really love to work with Silhouette. I am in love with the new CAMEO, I simply wish I had one to work with!

      • Traci, they Silhouette “guys” are great. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and I hope you’ll have a chance to get to know them too.

    • Oh, and Traci, there’s always next year! Watch the site for information on next year’s event to come shortly. We expect to put tickets up fairly early and sell out shortly.


  7. I’m so stinking excited! Already in Utah (Moab), and will see if the hubs will let me get away to the dinner on Wednesday (or I may drag him with me – he would LOVE that. Ha!). :)

    • Michele, I am so jealous of your fun. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been to Moab, but Derek takes the boys down every summer for some guy time. Such fun!!!

      Your husband is MORE than welcome to join us on Wednesday. It’s totally casual.


  8. I love to bake so Sweet would be my choice – baking and candy making are two of my favorite past-times! The whole list of sponsors is very impressive! I hope the conference is a wonderful as it sounds!

  9. Oh my goodness–check out that list & the pictures of those goodies! Cannot wait for Thursday!!! So excited!!! :)

  10. Ohh…I am so sad not to be there this year {next year, right?!} If I could choose any sponsor to work with it would have to be Michael Miller Fabrics! Dreams do indeed come true, right?!

    • Kirsten, we will miss you! We will be sharing information about next year’s event shortly. Stay tuned, we’re going to put tickets on sale early and we expect them to sell out early.


  11. Yipee! I better start packin :) This is ALL so very exciting! Thanks fro the giveaway.
