I brought my best lil crafter with me-- she loves all of the 'craft blogging' craziness as much as I do :)
When we arrived at the store, we were greeted with a cute lemonade bar. All the goodies made using items from the store of course. They have a brand new section that is full of chalkboards, burlap, twine, galvanized metal-- things that make crafty people smile.
The event organizers had put together a scavenger hunt- it was a neat way to tour the store. Afton and I raced around looking for the 8 clues. They led us through jewelry, framing, end caps filled with project ideas etc. The new store layout has wider aisles and the products are down lower, so they are easier to reach. It feels brighter and more modern.
I have to admit, we got a little competitive. Afton and I ended up running to the finish-- and winning! The prize was the coveted new Cricut Explore Air!! It's wireless, easy to use and I can't wait to do my first project with it.
After the hunt, the bloggers all returned to the project room where we each made our own tote using the new Cricut Explore Air. I was impressed how easy it was for Afton to use. If a 9 year old can use it.... well it means that all of us adults will love using it too!
All in all, the event was a success. Afton and I finished the evening with dinner at Pei Wei and talked about how lucky we were to win the Cricut and how cute her bag turned out.
If you are local, be sure to visit the new Michael's Frisco store. The Grand Opening is Sunday, April 12th at 5255 Eldorado Parkway at the Parkway Towne Center Shopping Center. (And don't forget to check out all those new burlap & chalkboard crafts!)
