Michaels Rewards Appearance: Recap, Pics and Behind the Scenes

Steve and I headed out last week to Atlanta… aka Hotlanta! We were so excited because we were doing an in-store appearance to celebrate the new Michaels Rewards Program. (This program rules!!! – should be nation wide in Spring 2012).  The video from our live streaming should be archived here in the near future.

Day 1: Arrived at Plaid!  We had a busy day of meetings!  Planning lots of new and exciting products and craft ideas.

Next Stop was dinner!  I had the fish tacos and they were delish!  Denice had the taco salad….I had to snap a pic cause it was so awesome!

Morning Meetings and then into the Makeup Chair!  Faith Brooks was the makeup artist.  She was so lovely and nice….and good at Make-up too!  You can see her website here.

Amy (Mod Podge Rocks) and I are showing off our make-up.  I love our tops together. 🙂

Steve was busy setting up….while we were dolling up.
Us with Michael Duncan the Creative Director for Michaels Craft Stores.  He is an amazing artist too!
Going Live…….
Our segment was all about Moe Podge and Dimensional Magic.

There is sweet Jo for Michaels.  I heart her!  So much fun and soooooo creative.

Lots of crafters showed up for make and takes.

This little cutie was so talented.  She made each project and was so cute!  Only 4 years old!

She was so sweet and crafty! and she had a Hello Kitty necklace……

Crafter, Recycler and Facebook Friend Betty came to see us and we were so thrilled.  Ya know when you chat with someone online and you finally get to see them in real life.  So fun and we are so grateful….she traveled 2 hours to attend!  BTW – her hubby was waiting in the wings.  Good GUY!

Betty makes amazing recycled books!
Books made from T.P. Rolls!
Mod Podge Halloween Frames!
Stenciled art was a HUGE hit!
Folkart Paint is in the house!
Airport Food…….?  Best crab cakes. Seriously they were good.
Landed and driving home.
