{{BlogHer Day Continued}}

Alright, here is the continued post about our crazy-informative first day at The Creative Connection with sponsor BlogHer...

At dinner that night, we sat down to another beautiful tablescape & our SWAG BAGS from all the sponsors at TCC...

An adorable "Aspire" necklace from The Vintage Pearl
Christie & I checking out our bags...Amy was a little more restrained than us, so I didn't get a photo of her here.
{{Here's a little pic from when I got back to my room later & REALLY checked it all out! Thanks to all the generous TCC sponsors for such wonderful goodies!}}
THE Bag - the same one as last year that I just LOVE!!
Now, it's time for the keynote speakers, Cristina Farrare & Holly Becker...
Cristina Ferrare, Cristina Cooks

Later that first evening we heard from the beautiful Cristina Ferrare (read about her here) & Holly Becker (her bio here) & I snapped these photos during their talks. They both had inspiring stories to tell, but totally different in how they came about their success. Cristina had been in & out of the modeling, acting & television world for years before becoming a published author & now a host on Oprah's Web network!

Holly Becker, Decor8
Whereas, Holly Becker found her fame by writing a blog about her passion for decorating that soon went viral with 45,000 subscribers!! Now, she too is a published author & columnist. Even if your goal isn't to be published, you can learn so much from these women.

Afterwards, Christie & I were able to meet them & get our photos taken with them!

And, the only man to be featured (so far) in Where Women Create, Tim Holtz. He hopped up on stage to share a few words of wisdom that night as well. (He was in town for the big ScrapFest at the Mall of America.)

Isn't he just adorable?!
Christie, Tim & me
I went to bed that night with my head just swimming with ideas & things to be done!
I was really glad that the next day would be more about creating while the ideas took shape subliminally in my head!
See you tomorrow...
