Invitation to Creative Inspiration Week

The cat is out of the bag! I didn’t want to reveal who was participating in Creative Inspiration Week until my co-conspirators (oh, I mean, co-hosts) in this event were ready, but now that they have made the announcement on their blog, I can let you all know more about what will be going on next week! No more teasers!

Here’s the official scoop thus far (each day I have added another amazing woman to the list of participants, so this is still a work in progress!):

A wonderful boutique, McMaster & Storm, has partnered with me to cook up some creative inspiration for YOU, my most favorite blog readers. I have the best friends, I have to pinch myself! I’ve been so excited about this I could nearly burst trying to keep it all a secret (thus, my many hints and teasers). We plotted and planned and now all is about to be revealed.

Next week at The Inspired Room blog we will be seeing and hearing from around 10 incredibly creative people on what inspires them, see their creative spaces, festive holiday ideas, and more.

Things will kick off on Monday with a special Gift Wrapping Tutorial from the amazing gals Kara & Darcy at McMaster & Storm! They are generously creating ideas to share with all of you, just in time for your holiday wrapping. Hooray! You will need to comment on Monday’s post to be entered into the drawing for their generous giveaway, which is a wonderful gift wrapping kit! Here is a peek, you can go visit McMaster & Storm to see all of the photos and their invitation.

Then, for the rest of next week, we will be sharing all sorts of Creative Inspiration from other amazing women, including Kaari Meng of French General, Sandra Evertson, Lisa Tutman-Oglesby, Alicia Paulson, Vanessa Valencia, and more I will introduce to you as things get underway. Yeah, I’ll say we are in for a treat! There will be another giveaway during the week of the newest book from French General, so you’ll want to visit each day so you don’t miss out on anything!

Invitation to Creative Inspiration Week

The goal of this event? I am hoping we will have fun, be inspired, learn something new, rev up our creativity, and meet great people! What could be better than that? Oh, and hopefully winning one of the prizes. That too. And snacks. I think we should have snacks. All parties have snacks. But for this party you can stay in your flannel jammies, no need to get gussied up. You know I love to make new BFF, so feel free to invite your friends if you want to! TTFN!
