Creative Chick 10th BLOGIVERSARY Celebration!!



Hello everyone!!  I’m here today celebrating with my good friend Jenn Shurkus!!!  She is celebrating her 10 year Blogiversary!!!  How fabulous is that!!

Let me give you some history as to how I met Jenn!!  I first came across Jenn when she made the Simon Says Stamp Design Team.  I when I had a chance to participate in the challenges, I did.  Then one day while on Instagram, I saw a picture of a Loft Retreat in Rhode Island so I wanted to check it out.  I check out and realized the blog belong to Jenn from Simon Say Stamp.  So I looked further.

As I was reading all about the Loft Retreat, I was getting excited.  I look up how far she was from me and when google map said 3 hrs, I knew I had to go.  So I contacted Jenn via Instagram to let her know that I would be at her retreat.  I was super excited.  As time draw closer, I remembered that my brother was having an honors ceremony the very same day in DC.

I was trying to figure out how I could be in Rhode Island and DC at the same time or at least an hour late to one.  Well, you know that wasn’t going to happen so I contacted Jenn and let her know that I can’t come she said don’t worry she will have another one very soon. Cool!

As soon as she put out the schedule for her next retreat, I was all on it.  I contacted her and let her know I will be there.  I cleared my schedule and everything.  Jenn sent out the special invite for us to pay and I was happy.  Well, I forgot to respond tot he email until THE night before and she had one sit left.  It was meant to be.

I traveled all the way to RI by myself and boy did I have a great time!!  I chatted, crafted and had lunch with a great set of women.  I left feeling well crafted.  Wait did I tell you, it was a Mixed Media class.  Totally out of my element, but boy did I have a great time.

Jenn recently had her card retreat and I attended and had a wonderful time.  Since I’ve been to her classes and to her home, we are officially friends, or at least I hope so, LOL!!!

Soooo, I say all of that to say CONGRATS Jenn on 10 years of awesomeness!!

Here are Jenn’s cards that I CASED:
