Giveaway: Full conference pass to SNAP!

I’ve talked about SNAP! before.  And I’m about to talk about it so more.  SNAP! is a 3 day conference for creative bloggers in Salt Lake City, UT next April.  It’s going to be fabulous.  To celebrate this holiday season, SNAP! is giving away a whole crap ton of tickets!


Why do you want to come to SNAP! ?

1) I will be there.
2) Lots of people cooler than me will be there.
3) You love blogging.
4) You love making crap.  (There will be TONS of hands on classes/make and takes.)
5) You just need to hide from your kids for a few days.


One full conference pass to the SNAP! conference next April.  (This does not include travel or accommodations, but I could probably be persuaded to pick you up from the airport.  Winking smile)

  63. Well there’s the blog thing and the cool people thing and they great crafts thing, but for me it’s mostly about the hide from my kids for a few days thing.

  64. I subscribe to SNAP! which means I’m pretty much blog stalking all of the giveaway ladies this week … well more than usual.

  65. I would love to come to this!! I have never been to a blogging conf before – but since I live in Idaho – I could drive to it!!!! I would love to learn some new crafts and hang with the girls – not my 5 kids:) for the weekend!!

  72. Melissa Spencer says:

    Well, I like making crap and someday I hope to be able to make crap and then blog about it. The real lure of the conference however, is that I will be 8+ months pregnant in April and I’m certain the my 2 1/2 yr old and my 14 month old will really want to spend some fun days with dad at that point and I will need to remember why I want to have another baby… sounds like something only SNAP could accomplish.

  73. I want to go to SNAP so I can meet all the awesome bloggers that I stalk! ;0) I recently started a cake blog, and would love to learn how to be a better blogger.

  74. Top 5 reasons I want/need to go to SNAP!
    5. I have an etsy shop..with nothing in it… I seriously need inspiration!
    4. I love LOVE blogging! Ok, I love reading your blog and others and I dream of blogging myself. I seriously need inspiration!
    3. My project room has become the ‘catch-all’ room. Kind of the junk drawer of the entire house. I seriously need inspiration!
    2. I recently became a grandma! I don’t know how that qualifies me, but it is AWESOME!!!
    1. I have 7 children. Six of which are teenagers and young adults who know all, and a 6 yr. old. Get the picture? I am nearly bald. I seriously would LOVE a break from my lovely insanity!

  75. I am subscribed to the Snap blog! :)

  76. I want to come!

  77. I would love to go to get away from my kids!!! Lol no I really want to go to meet different bloggers and listen to the speakers!

  78. I subscribe to SNAP’s Rss feed

  79. I want to go so I can hang out with you. And because I like to make stuff. Okay, and because I want to learn some new stuff, too. :)

  80. Because I need a getaway just for me

  81. I subscribe to snap feed

  82. I would love to attend SNAP! I admire you so much Char–mostly because you are SO real about family, motherhood and life in general. You make me feel like it is okay to not be perfect and have it all figured out. I desperately need a career change and my son and daughter-in-law have been bugging/encouraging me to step out and do something to harness my creative energies and interests ( blog + etsy shop) but I am a chicken. I think meeting and spending time with so many amazingly talented bloggers and fellow creative gurus would give me the push/confidence I need. Thanks so much for the chance and for helping me to be proud of being myself!! Love you.

  83. I added SNAP! to my RSS feed. Thanks!

  84. I would love to attend SNAP… I’m pretty new to blogging and could use any help I can get, I like making stuff and it sounds super great. Thanks for the chance to win!

  85. Why? Because it’s SNAP! That’s why! And it’s in Utah, that’s beautiful – or so I’ve heard! And because I’ve never been to a blog conference!

  86. Winning this giveaway would leave me speechless- something very very hard to do! Haha

  87. oh yes, indeed i want to come to SNAP! would love it. it would be such a great opportunity & LOADS of fun!

  88. just tweeted.

  93. I am dying to get to SNAP this would be so benefiical to me trying to grow. My ideas are plentiful I just need some guidance and tools to get me there! Pick me!!!!

  94. Hi. Thanks for this opportunity…I actually tried to register for the conference a few days ago, but I couldn’t get the pay pal thing to work. So I turned it off and decided that it was a lot of money and that maybe this new hobby of mine to re-make new things out of some thing old is just a silly time-sucker. With 2 young kids and my obsession with not being able to stop a project once I have started, often presents a problem. But after finding this amazing opportunity, my faith has been rekindled! I really do love creating things and being inspired by every day events in life. Creating new things for me helps me to appreciate all things old and new, and has opened my eyes to diverse ideas (and people) in general. I love, love, love my new hobby-aka my new passion, and I would be completely honored if I was chosen to receive this conference ticket.

  95. I tweeted about this giveaway!

  96. I would love to come…one , it would be a blast and second just to meet you Char!

  97. Two entries please – commenting AND I follow snap! feed. I REALLY wanted to go last year but couldn’t afford it. Pick me, pick me!

  98. First of all – to meet you and all the other crafty and inspirational crafters! Second – it would be great to have a valid reason to tell work you really are taking a vacation and not answering your phone! lol
