Well, my Midwest Craft Con experience was a little different from that of my colleagues because, well, I wasn’t there.
That’s right. After hundreds of hours and boundless energy invested into organizing this kickass conference, I wasn’t there.
Granted, I had the best reason in the world to stay home: the slightly early arrival of a gorgeous, healthy baby boy. But I still felt like I was missing out. Fortunately, my sisters in crime made me feel like I was part of the action as I watched on through the lens of social media between feedings and naps.
The fact that Megan and Grace took the time to put my face on a stick to give me a presence at the Con made me feel so special! Before I knew it, I was seeing my face all over social media attached to what is undeniably the best hashtag ever.

Final day of Midwest Craft Con! Made some new friends @pretty_bookish @brittanydunlapart @mybellastudio , caught up with others @studiochopstix @benbohbotanicals @dabbleandstitch , and learned so much. I'm sad that it's over, but excited that there will be others in the future. Thanks for putting on such a great event! #midwestcraftcon #feelthebrit
Although I wasn’t there to get all the great information or participate in craftivities or join in epic karaoke sessions, I really appreciate the effort that went into making me feel involved and am even more excited for Craft Con 2017! I can’t wait to actually meet all the amazing people who were “feeling the brit” at Midwest Craft Con. ❤
