"Partial Post" - The Creative Connection Event

Dear Friends,
In preparing my final “Wrap Up” post, I am overwhelmed with inspiration. The kindness, creativity, sharing and the connecting was… oh for a better lack of words AWESOME! I just don’t think I can put it all in just one post, so over the next few days I will share with you some of the highlights I experienced while attending the Creative Connection Event in Minneapolis Minnesota.

This is me and Jo Packham, my “Rock star”. Her along with Nancy Soriano are the founders of The Creative Connection Event. Jo’s journey began more than 30 years ago in the publishing business. Just two years ago she along with Stampington & Company created the magazine “Where Women Create” my “bible” of the whole magazine industry. I pour over each issue, and then I pour over it again and again. She was the number one person on my wish list to meet. And she was everything I expected, cool, calm, generous, kind, inspiring, just to name a few of the hundreds of words to describe her. I highly encourage you to learn more about her and her magazine at

As I explained in a past post, my camera skills with my iphone were to say the least not good.  Nancy is on the left. She is soooo cool. Beautiful too! What energy and enthusiasm she displays. That is why she spent 10 years as editor in chief of Country Living magazine. She is passionate about creative women and is very encouraging to hundreds of women entrepreneurs all over the world. You can hear more from her on Sirius Radio where she is a design and home keeping expert on Martha Stewart. I know you are all busy creative women but, if you can grab a cup of coffee and catch Good Morning America, she is their expert lifestyle specialist. And yes, they are both standing on a table.  This was at our farewell cupcake party.  You see what I mean, two down to earth passionate women!
"Some of the Team"

Well, I tried to keep my ramblings short. This is the best I could do today. These 2 women are so fantastic and inspiring that I could write the whole blog about them. So please check them out, you will not be disappointed.

Have a great day and go create something!
