Why can't I be in two places at once...aka 2011's "The Creative Connection"


There's a "Good News Bad News" kinda thing going on here..

The Creative Connection is set for September 15-17, 2011!!! This amazing event will be held in St. Paul, MN and will be sponsored by Sterling Publishing and Blog Her. (can you say WOO HOO!) Word is, it is going to be the networking event of the season with four attendee tracks being offered in: Food, Handmade, Social Media and Business.

This utterly amazing event was founded by two of my friends, Jo Packham and Nancy Soriano...(I will never forget the day the two of them got together here in Warwick on the porch of Charlotte's Tea Room and the plan for the event was hatched...but I digress) I love both of these women, and I am so very proud that they have created this wondrous convention-style event for artful women who are passionate about their businesses, their lives, learning and so much more.

So what's the bad news you ask? Well, I cannot be there this year.

By the time the dates were announced for TCC I had already made a commitment to once again be among the featured vendors at The Country Living Fair in Columbus where Earth Angels is a big part of the event and as such, I had made commitments to artists for their work that I will of course keep -- it's always my honor to show the work of the Earth Angels' artists.

Big sigh...

So, next time you hear they are handing out super-powers, please get me an order of "able to be in 2 places at once", OK?

It is with true regret, Nancy and Jo that I will miss being there, I know I will miss out on so much...but I sure do hope some of you out there will go and tell me all about it...AND I will do my best to be there in 2012!

xxoo Jen
