Creativation 2018 was a blast, in spite of dealing with a bit of lagging energy from the flu. Who has time for that when there’s so much to see and so many people to meet?!


Be sure to click the photos to see all the details!




First things first – registration. 🙂 After taking care of details, securing media credentials, and forming a plan, Race (aka The Technical Department) and I checked out the New Products Showcase. How tempting and fun to look at!





Time to go in to the show floor and you can’t miss it!! But what was one of the very first things to greet me? A HUGE wall of Plaid sparkly glitter with a sign that proudly proclaims that Glitter is My Favorite Color! I guess you can tell by the look on my face that I might question that fact. 😉



Shannon Green (creator of Fused Vinyl products) and her husband, Jayson, had been taking classes and workshops for several days before we caught up with each other. We had the pleasure of spending an hour together. Shannon joined me for a Creative Chat in May, 2016 and it’s definitely time to schedule another one! I’m sure we’ll have NO problem finding things to chat about!




We found some fun photo booths for Instagram and Facebook. Race enjoyed directing me to get a decent shot. It’s always a challenge for me to have a camera in my face, so he often has to make me laugh to get the shot he wants. 😉 (Race is a fantastic director/producer, if you didn’t know.)


At the end of a long day of meetings, the “Tour Bus” looks very tempting. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t take us back to the parking garage of out to dinner. 😉

I’ll be sharing a series of blog posts about Creativation 2018, so be sure to come back!

Until next time ~
