an evening out…

Last night I had the opportunity to get out and join a fun group of creative bloggers for an evening of fun, food, and craftiness!

My Craft Channel and Canon sponsored the event and I felt so lucky to be included in the group of gals attending!  It was pretty casual, and we were able to discuss something we ALL have in common – our passion for making memories and then saving them in a tangible way!


We were served yummy food, creative flavored sodas, and fun little swag bags full of goodies we could use to make our own little instagram albums!  They even had pages of photos ready for each of us (from our OWN instagram accounts) ready to tuck in the album for safe keeping!


I already own a Canon printer (this one) that I love, but after seeing the brand new printer in the studio, and learning about the technology available (what…download an app and “click and print” from your phone?!?), I want an upgrade!  Maybe something like this:


So I can print huge photos on this:

Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, 13 x 19 Inches, 20 Sheets (2311B026)

Thanks so much to Kristine and Lori from My Craft Channel and to the reps from Canon – I had a great evening catching up with old friends, making new friends, and sharing our passion for getting those photos safely printed and saved so they can be cherished forever!
