If you follow me on Instagram then you got a few sneak peeks of some big news last weekend…
In case you missed it, though, I’ve been invited to be part of Michaels Makers, a group Michaels pulled together to represent some of the most creative and inspirational craft and lifestyle bloggers from across the country. You can meet the whole team here; you’ll probably see some familiar faces!
Michaels flew us to wine country in California last weekend for a three-day Michaels Makers Summit! We crafted, chatted, and sipped champagne at a secluded mountaintop estate, and I can’t even begin to describe how gorgeous it all way. Scroll down for pictures!
Free Craft Workshops for YOU!
While at the Summit, we got to go DIY-crazy and take four crafty workshops from some of Creativebug’s best instructors. It was so fun to be the one taking a workshop instead of teaching it. I’m always blown away by the vastly different finished projects a group of creative people can imagine from the same supplies and instruction, too.
The best part is that YOU get to take the exact same workshop for FREE until August 22. You can re-create our projects from the Summit, and if you do, be sure to shar them on Instagram using #MadeWithMichaels. Here are the classes:
- Paper Peonies with Livia Cetti
- Beginning Watercolor with Yao Cheng
- Frame Weaving with Annabel Wrigley
- Image Transfers (3 ways!) with Courtney Cerruti
Which one will you take? All of them? I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I’m not able to access the Beginning Watercolour or Frame Weaving classes. Are they coming later? Am I doing something wrong? (I’m in Canada, but the other two are available so I’m not sure that affects anything).
Hi Angela! I just clicked through, and they’re all working for me. You might want to try refreshing the page. You should be able to click through each of the four videos on that Michaels landing page!
I should clarify: The link brings me to all the pages, but the Beginning Watercolour and Frame Weaving are not available to watch without a subscription. They are greyed out and only the Overview clip will play. It’s asking me to sign up to watch, and I was under the impression these 4 were unlocked until the end of the month.
I’m so sorry I didn’t see your reply, Angela! I’m not sure what was going on there because it was working okay for me, but hopefully you at least got to enjoy the other two classes. And you’re right, you shouldn’t have needed to sign up, so maybe it was just being glitchy? 🙂
Love love love your pictures of the event! It looks like it was so special. I’m excited to take the workshops, thanks for sharing! Xoxo :luaninthongball:
Thanks so much, Marlene! It was a blast, but I’m definitely thinking we need to start our own annual shindig, too! <3
That’s great, congrats!
Thanks so much, Natalie!! <3
Lindsay! It was soooo much hanging out and getting to know you! P.S. I still need in on this Luan in a thong thing. xoxo
Lady I had SO MUCH FUN chatting with you! I need to implement some sort of daily Luan text mssaging system. So nobody ever has to miss a moment… haha
I just saw that I forgot to leave the “FUN” out of my comment. I got so excited thinking about Luan in a thong that I had a brain fart.
