And I would kill again, if they let me!
Guys! Can I tell you how much I’ve missed you? I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I put my mouth to a microphone and said the words, “Welcome to the Fresh Rag Show.” I’m glad to be back, and I cannot wait to share all kinds of awesome this month. You are not going to believe all the cool people I’ve met in the last few weeks, and I am bring all of them to this party right here.
But first, though, I want to talk about the Craftcation Conference. I attended this show in the last weekend of March, and I had a blast. I was a participant, and MC, and a live, roving reporter, which you’ll get to hear in just a minute.
If you’re not familiar with the Craftcation Conference, it’s the brain child of the ladies from Dear Handmade Life, and this was their fourth year putting the event on. It’s a combination of actual DIY making, and business building. Whether you’re a newb maker who just wants to expand their skillset, or a budding business owner looking to take your maker business to the next level, this is the event for you.
I was lucky enough to be part of a couple discussions during the event, talking about podcasting and branding to tons of ladies just itching for new information. The branding chat was fantastic, and I had a blast being the moderator. I can say without any qualms that I kicked ass in that chat, and I am proud how it turned out. Could it have been better? Definitely, but I killed that room, in a good way, and it only made me want to do it again.
The podcast chat was also cool, but with a much more mellow tone. I’m not always big on mellow, as you know, but I gotta respect the process of others out there.
I will say that I was looking to turn up the heat on the joint, but I refrained from setting fire to anything.
Overall, the event was a lot of fun, and as you’ll hear in this show, I met some tremendous talent and personalities. I can’t wait to expand on some of these conversations soon. I won’t give away any secrets, but I promise at least one of these chats may become something truly awesome for Fresh Rag. You’ll have to stay tuned to coming weeks to find out what that’s all about.
For now, just indulge in some of the greatness that is the ladies of the Craftcation Conference.
