Michael’s Craft Store – Blogger Event


Wow. I wanted to get this up so much sooner. But with a move, a new baby, and summer craziness…….I’m just now sharing about the fabulous Michael’s Blogger Event. And their incredible generosity.


A few months ago, I was contacted by Michael’s Craft Store, to see if I’d like to attend a blogger event in Dallas Texas, at the beginning of June. Um, yes. At this time, we had no idea we’d be moving to Colorado. So, I called up my mom to see if she’d like to meet me in Dallas (to have some grandma time with our Baby Girl), asked a few great friends to watch the two bigger kiddos while my husband was in class during the day…….and the plan was a go. Hooray.

Of course I’d like to go, Michael’s! Are you kidding? What an honor. Wow. (Now, did you contact the right Ashley?? ;) Ha.)


Click here to see my trip to Dallas, the generous trip from Michael’s…….and a fantastic 2 days with 9 other bloggers. I’m still overwhelmed by the 2 fun filled days of being spoiled rotten.  And crafting with other crafters.


Wish you all could have been there.  Now my mind is turning……..something needs to be set up so I can meet more of you bloggers/readers/crafters.


(And no, I’m not being paid to blog about my trip.  I just loved it……and wanted to share.)
