I’m Presenting At The 2017 Pinners Conference In Scottsdale, AZ!
What exactly is The Pinners Conference?
The Pinners Conference is where Pinterest comes to life! It’s everything you love about Pinterest in one place. They have shopping booths with everything you could think of like paper crafting, home décor, organization, makeup and clothes to name a few.
Last year my lovely Mama and I attended the first Pinners Conference hosted in Arizona. We had a blast exploring the booths and getting inspired by all the eye candy. We probably spent a good 2-3 hours shopping and still had not covered all of the shops.
They had a lot of Arizona and Phoenix inspired items and signs. One of my favorite booths had stuffed cactus pillows for the babies and toddlers! I know right? It was absolutely unique and adorable, see the middle photo below and I know you’ll agree. How clever are those cuties.
Even if you didn’t feel like shopping (which would make me question your sanity) you could just go and get immensely inspired by all the beautiful booths and decor. There really is something for everyone and a surprise around every corner!
Last year there was even a vintage trailer you could shop in, complete with a fitting room! I’m telling you the Pinners Conference is not your average event!
Ok Katherine, But What’s Really Unique About It?
One of the special things about this conference is the classes. These are the highlight of this event! The classes are taught by some of the best presenters in the nation.
They have classes on beauty and fashion, lifestyle and learning, DIY and crafts, food, home décor, party planning, photography, fitness and much more! There’s a class for everyone. You can easily find something to suit your interests.
My Mom and I decided to take a few classes. During one of our classes while we were sitting among the audience listening to one of our amazing presenters, I said to myself ” I would love to do this” and right then I decided I wanted to present a class.
As timid and shy I can be at times, I was determined to make this happen. I am terrified of speaking, but ironically I love teaching. So I contacted Pinners and applied to be a presenter for 2017!
So you can image my enthusiasm when I got the email from Pinners that they wanted me to present! My boys and I had a dance party in the living room. They had no idea what we were celebrating, but hey they don’t need an excuse to jump around.
I am so excited to be presenting! My class is on creating my mini tree sign. The sign is the same design from my 8 foot Ultimate Pallet Sign Project which has been pinned over 1 Million times on Pinterest! Crazy right? At one point the traffic broke my website (but I’ll save that for another post).
We will be making the tree sign and I’ll be demonstrating the various ways you can personalize it. It’s going to be a blast! Hopefully I will see you there!
