Creativation 2020 was so awesome! I spent last weekend in Phoenix and saw so many incredible new products that I am excited to share with you. I made new connections and got to catch up with old connections. I also spent time with some of my friends who I only see at trade shows and conferences. It was wonderful!

Ficstitches Yarns kits say they combine two of your favorites – crochet and reading – but I say it’s three; you can’t forget getting pretties in the mail! After all, what could be more awesome then pretty crochet goodies and a good read in the mail? Maybe if they were delivered with chocolate and a hot beverage by a cute and fluffy dog. However, this is reality, so no delivery puppies.

Stick around ’til the end of this post for a chance to win a Spring 2020 kit – Giveaway ends February 9, 2020.
