Forbes Feature! In-Person Events Are The Way To Go

Forbes Feature

Feels so good to be included. I was recently mentioned in an article in Forbes! It was such an incredible moment to see that happen– what a sweet surprise! The article centers on how many YouTubers and Instagramers are now opting for in-person meet-ups and mentioned my Crafternoons almost right away.

One of the things I love most about my job is that it allows me to make incredible connections with amazing crafters and like-minded people from all over the world. Something super special happens, when you’re in a room of people who are all united in their desire to make beautiful things, keep memories, and spread positivity. One of the things I would like to do is make in-person events a little more frequent. For example, earlier this year, I was able to host my very first Craft A Life You Love Retreat– hopefully just one of many to come in the future. Alisha has a great recap of it on her blog and so does Kelsey of The Curated Life. I still haven’t been able to fully put the whole thing into words, but I am still working on the YouTube video to share soon. More recently, I released a Plan-With-Me YouTube video. While this isn’t technically an in-person event, it was nice to talk more casually as I worked through a project and shared as I went along. 

Let me know– would you want to attend an in-person event? If you are interested, stay in the loop! Sign up to receive my newsletter, Sweet Slice of Life, right here on the website. Did you see the Forbes piece? What are your thoughts about in-person events?
