{Upcycled Button Easter Eggs @ Something Created Everyday}
I am having a fab time at the Creative Estates Conference in Arizona. It’s so fun to meet new friends and get creatively recharged. There are so many wonderful ideas linked up to the Weekend Wrap Up Party so far!! I asked my cute friend Maggie to be my special guest today and make up a list of her favorites from the links so far — and here she is!!!

  1. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

    I love that you posted come pics of Creative Estates. I bought a ticket, and live in AZ and Thurs. night came down w/ something- really bad :( So my ticket was wasted and I'm very disappointed…as it was my first blog conference. I really admire you and was looking forward to meeting you! Hope it was wonderful and thanks for always posting such fun creative stuff :)
