56 days until Craftcation 2019 - but who's counting? Oh, right....WE ARE! We can't wait to get back to Ventura and to be surrounded by the amazing members of our Craftcation community.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For our alumni, it's a reunion - seeing faces and hugging necks that we sometimes only get to see once a year at this conference. For our first-timers, it's an experience unlike any other and we can't wait to welcome you this year! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even though our event is technically sold out, don't give up! Head over to our Facebook Event Page - there are some registered attendees that can no longer make it that are looking to sell their tickets. (Link in our profile.)

Big thanks to Chelsey at @thepapermama for the reminder.
