Final day of Creativation

Well, it is the final day of the show and it has been a ton of fun and we have even learned some new things too! :)
To date we have placed 13 orders and we have quite a few left to so we will be closing out the show floor this afternoon.
Here are some of our highlights of the show and be sure to check out Crafty Capers Facebook page for more fun stuff.

I'm kind of muddled up about what day it is now although I know today was the first day of education for Creativation. In the past few days we have had classes with Sizzix, Graphic 45, Elizabeth Craft Design, Dina Wakley, Dyan Reaveley, Heartfelt Creations and Reminisce.
I've been quite bad at taking photos this year, not to mention blogging. We've been going 12 to 14 hours per day so I am pooped!  I guess it does help I am a walking quite a bit worse than last year or that I am having a birthday later this week!
We have  submitted a record 3 orders before the show has even officially started. Yeah us!
Here are some photos from the past 3 days.

Dina Wakley and I as always she does a wonderful class. Poor thing was really sick though and lost her voice by end of class.

The only time we have seen the sun was Wednesday at lunch. Phoenix has not been warm.

I thought this photo was pretty funny. Linda was so pooped one night she just dragged her bags along.

New company alert! :)

We did a Gel Press class. Linda and I both had never tried them before. Pretty fun.

Happy new year!

Well 2017 is here. I can't believe how fast 2016 went. I'm hoping I will be back to more regular blogging this year.
Crafty Capers is already receiving new product and we are off to a big trade show in a week so be sure to keep checking back regularly.
