I’ll Be at Pinners Conference This Weekend!

I am teaching party planning workshops at Pinners Conference this fall in both Arizona and Utah. I’m really excited about what I’m teaching this year… sure it’s about party planning and hostessing, but it’s REALLY more about simplifying and learning how to better appreciate all the wonderfulness in your life!

If you haven’t heard of it, Pinners Conference is like Pinterest & Etsy brought to life. Come be inspired with tons of workshops taught by your favorite bloggers, and shop the huge expo where you’ll find the cutest goods from local businesses. I’ll be teaching classes at both the Arizona and Utah Pinners conferences. Oh and be sure to use the code “SUPERMOM” for 10% OFF your ticket.

We’ve all been there — you’re planning your kiddo’s birthday party and head to Pinterest to be “inspired.” After hours of pinning you’ve got literally hundreds of ideas and high expectations, but no idea where to actually begin. Some people get worn out trying to achieve that Pinterest perfection, while others just give up. I’m going to be sharing my best secrets for creating Pinterest magic on a scale that is both doable and satisfying. Last year I only taught one class, but so many missed it. So this year I’m teaching a class on both Friday and Saturday to make it easier for you to make it. Both classes are similar and both will be good… so come at whichever time works best for you.

My Classes at Arizona Pinners Conference, October 6-7, 2017 @ Westworld in Scottsdale:

FRIDAY 10/6 @ 4:30 – Throw a Party Without Going Insane
SATURDAY 10/7 @ 9:30 – Hostess Hacks

I’m so excited about my workshop, but YOU GUYS! I’m also super excited about the classes I’m taking myself… like my friends’ over at Classy Clutter are teaching “Awesome Accent Walls.” They are seriously the accent walls QUEENS (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C) so I’ll definitely be there. Also Natalie Malan’s “Intro to Watercolor” — I’ve taken watercolor classes from Natalie, and she’s amazing! I’m so sad my friend Erin of Printable Crush is teaching “Creative Planner Journaling” at the same time I’m teaching on Friday. Erin is AMAZING, and if I were you I’d go to her class on Friday and come to mine Saturday. Seriously LOL!… that’s why I’m teaching two classes so you can catch me in the time slot that works best for you.

Plus there are cooking classes, photo classes, and hands-on classes where you can make a project to take home! Go check out all the Pinners classes. I’d bet there are a bunch more you won’t want to miss. (Look for mine under “Party Planning.”)

Pinners is seriously so much fun, and I haven’t even begun to tell you about the incredible SHOPPING. So many vendors, and almost all are small businesses, boutiques with really cool stuff.

Here’s a little sneak peek into my classes… I’ll be sharing some of my favorite tips and sources for party decor. It’s not just birthdays that deserve a celebration, and one of the easy ways I’m prepared to party at a moments notice is by keeping a stash of easy party decorations.

Look for items that fold down small so they’re easy to store in a bin. My Minds Eye is my favorite place to find reasonably priced, stylish decor items that totally look handmade. I recommend you begin by collecting your favorite black and white decor pieces since those colors can work with almost any party theme.
