Last week I told you about a Michaels Blogger Event I was invited to attend in Dallas. I want to tell you a little more about this awesome trip and host a fun giveaway!
It was such an honor to be asked to attend this event. I have truly grown to love the people at Michaels! I also had a blast meeting so many talented bloggers.

First, we got to craft with Jo Pearson, one of the judges on TLC’s Craft Wars, and her creative team. If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you saw some of my silly photos and the cool crafts we made. Later, Jo answered some questions for us about Craft Wars, which was a lot of fun to hear about!
If you read my post about the beautiful Michael’s Holiday decorating ideas, then you know we also got to attend a private trade show for Michaels managers and vendors. Here are some craft celebrities I met, creative projects and fun new products that you’ll see in the stores this fall.
I can’t wait to get my hands on these fun stick on nails at Michaels! LOVE the googly eyes!
You couldn’t get me out of the fun kid product booths! Crayola has some really cool play kits just in time for the holidays and this cardboard kitchen is awesome!
Battery operated candles… yes please!
