The design team is led by Jo Pearson, who has been with Michaels for 20 years. The next day we toured their work space. I LOVED seeing their design studio. What a dream job it would be to work there – I can only imagine!!!
One of the big things I learned is that Michaels has developed their own lines of products that are high quality but more affordable than other designer lines.
Michaels had tables set up with the different lines and crafts made by their design team at each table.
It was so inspiring seeing all of that creativity!!
Then we were treated to lunch at Jo’s house – it is incredible and deserves a blog post all of it’s own!
She has the most amazing studio!!
This is her yard! How cute is that turquoise trailer? I wanted to take it home with me!
Isn’t her home incredible?
Then we headed over to the Southlake Michaels store for my favorite part of the trip — crafting with the amazing Michaels Team and the other creative bloggers! We decorated cakes, made necklaces, cards, and these beautiful art journals with Kathy Kromer.
And made our own stamps with foam — I loved this so much!!
Every single thing about this event was so fun!!
Thank you Michaels for such a wonderful experience.
I loved learning more about you and the people behind the scenes!!
I had such a fun time getting to know these ladies. They are all so creative and friendly.
Disclosure — Michaels Craft Stores paid for my travel and accommodations. They did not require that I blog about this event — I am blogging about it because I was so impressed. All opinions are 100% mine.
