Kristi's Friday Fixations: Craftcation

That's right, folks. Two geniuses, by the name of Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson, have decided that it was just about time to combine two of my favorite things in the world: crafts and vacation. And thus, Craftcation was born.

Craftcation: Indie Business & DIY Conference is a three-day indie business and DIY conference featuring panel discussions and DIY workshops with leading industry professionals on art, craft, and food-centered small business. Craftcation features more than fifty workshops, panels, lectures, and events over the three day period and is led by over thirty presenters, including people like Aida Mollenkamp (from Food Network's "Ask Aida"), Jenny Hart, Cathy Callahan, Christine Haynes, and The Urban Craft Center. This fabulous conference will take place in the lovely Ventura, California from March 22-25, 2012.

I think that the idea of this conference is amazing, and that the inspiration behind it is, well...inspiring! Snell and Stevenson were motivated to provide a forum for indie business, small businesses, and crafters alike. Delilah Snell, owner of her own environmentally friendly emporium of global goods based in Santa Ana, California, called The Road Less Traveled, says "I've always wanted to inspire fellow business people to take that chance and just do it!"

"Our objective is to ignite the entrepreneurial business spirit and strengthen skills and abilities of seasoned business owners and newcomers to indie craft business. This is an opportunity to network, communicate and share." -Snell and Stevenson

I don't know about you guys, but I want to go! Maybe if I start combining some of my other favorite things, I can find a way to market and sell them, thus having enough money to fly across the country and attend this exciting conference. Let's see...chocolate and puppies? Cardigans and watercolor pencils? Eggo waffles and hydrangeas? Don't worry, I'll think of something!
