If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or follow my Instagram feed, you probably know that I was recently in Ventura, CA for Craftcation!
Craftcation is 4 days of craft immersion! There is a lovely balance of craft business lectures and actual crafts.
And the best part of the experience is to grow your craft community by connecting with makers that share an investment in growing their craft business and encouraging the pursuit of craftiness.
Obviously, it was a perfect fit.
I had the opportunity to take courses that untangled the treacherous waters of SEO and also got to make soap!
I learned about how you can combine your blog and your crafty endeavors to create an online presence that helps you build your community. And I had the very fine opportunity to cook with KCRW’s host of Good Food, Evan Kleiman.
It’s important to explore beyond your community and learn about other people on the same adventure as you! Craftcation is a great way to do that!
AND THE OCEAN, YOU GUYS! The whole event is right next to the beach and just sipping a margarita next to that view will set a person at ease no matter what.
I want to share some of the amazing swag that I managed to get my hands on!
