It was a great honor to be representing Amaco and Friendly Plastic this weekend at The Creative Connection event held in Minneapolis, MN. Here’s a little night time view from the 18th floor of the Hyatt Hotel seated in downtown Minneapolis.
Somehow you just know it is going to be an awesome day when you’re greeted at the breakfast table by creative “new” friends and a a delicious yogurt parfait.
The event was host to 400 creative women from indie etsy artists, mommy bloggers, publishers, designers, TV show producers and so on representing 46 states and Canada. These women were just “itchin” to absorb all they could to take their businesses and their dreams to the next level and let me tell you…the talent in the HandMade Marketplace was beyond my wildest dreams.
I used this opportunity to connect and meet as many new creative friends as possible and of course to spread the word of just how awesome Friendly Plastic is. Those who had heard of Friendly Plastic were so excited that this “retro” product is on a comeback mission and those who didn’t….okay the way “younger” crowd….we’re excited to hear about a medium they had never heard of before.
They had lots of opportunity to create with Friendly Plastic at the special Pajama Party Event which we held LIVE from the hotel. Over a hundred attended this event.
My table is excited and ready to go!!! Look at all those happy faces!
Once they learned how you can cut and stack and melt and heat and bond and marble and wrap Friendly Plastic….you couldn’t pull them away!
One gal got so carried away…she made 4 pieces in about a half an hour…and she was still sitting there making more. She just kept saying..”I LOVE THIS STUFF….I LOVE THIS STUFF!”
Everyone left the event with huge smiles on their faces and a goodie bag full of Amaco products to take home with them….now the next challenge….
How in the world to get it all home?!?!?!!?!?
