There were so many little things that made #Craftcation15 a big deal. This annual crafting conference in Ventura (CA) was a utopia for hobbyists and professionals alike. Nested on the ground floor of the Crowne Plaza hotel, Craftcation instructors led workshops on art techniques covering water color, mixed media, jewelry making and much more. Thanks to Craftcation, I learned how to mix watercolors, make my own stamps, mold custom jewelry, and sew on a Bernina sewing machine. As a side benefit, I even learned how to network on Instagram! The crafting community is a pure delight, and I'm already looking forward to next year, or a year I can attend with my daughters.
