Last week’s destination — SNAP!, a conference for craft, DIY and lifestyle bloggers. The three-day event was packed with classes, events, meals, mingling, and making friends. Today I’ll share a few SNAP! snippets, though I was there to work so I missed a lot. On the other hand, I got to meet more than 200 creative, friendly and enthusiastic bloggers and tell them all about STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam and many other products sold by FloraCraft. I’ll show you around . . .
The amazing Tauni Everett and her crackerjack team of volunteers are the masterminds behind the SNAP! Conference. It’s held at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah, about 35 minutes outside of Salt Lake City. It’s nestled in the mountain ranges and the scenery is gorgeous.
My first stop — the exhibit space on the second floor of the Museum for Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point.
After setting up the FloraCraft booth, I made a quick trip down the road to the IKEA store to pick up a few things. I’m not sure which one was more exciting – the IKEA store or the views.
The conference ran Thursday through Saturday. I spent my days in the FloraCraft booth, along with other exhibitors like Lowe’s, World Market, MinWax, DecoArt, Cricut, Duck Tape®, Annie Sloan and Scotch Tape.
Thursday night was the Pajama Party, and we organized a make & take for the bloggers. Everyone had a chance to make a Ruffled Felt Cupcake.
Another night, SNAP hosted the Queen Bee Handmade Market. Notice the SNAP! logo? FloraCraft made the logo from STYROFOAM Brand Foam.
The Waffle Truck visited Thanksgiving Point while we were there, and served up amazing waffles!
SNAP! also coincided with the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point Gardens. After packing up the booth on Saturday, I grabbed a quick, 45-minute break to see a few highlights of the Tulip Festival. The gardens and the setting were exquisite, and I finally had a few minutes to relax.
Speaking of tulips, FloraCraft designer Dondi Richardson made the tulip centerpieces for the tables at SNAP!
Though the days were long, it was worth it to meet so many inspiring bloggers, and to share in their energy and enthusiasm. I am looking forward to keeping in touch with everyone I met.
Shifting gears to last week’s Road trip recap, today I’m also announcing the winners of the three Better Homes & Gardens gift packs. Winners of the books and magazines are Jessica Weyrowske, Laurie and Joan. Congratulations! This is “first come, first serve” so please contact me and let me know your preference, 1 – 3, for the three collections. Thank you!
Don’t forget this week’s Earth Day giveaway, too.
Thanks for joining me at SNAP! today. Which bloggers inspire you?
