Michaels Creative Crew – Part III

By: Amy Atlas, in Amy's Latest, Behind The Scenes

Crafting at the Michaels Creative Crew Event.  I kind of loved the circle cutter

I hope you had a chance to check out the Michaels Creative Crew Part I and PartII posts.  I’m back today with the final post of this event.  After checking out the Michaels Stores headquarters, we were invited to Jo Pearson’s house for lunch and a sweet dose of southern hospitality!

This is a peek into Jo’s very cool crafting room at home.  Scroll below to see some of the very creative items in her home…

Jo’s home is decorated with many antique and vintage finds.  It was like being in a museum. Check out these mannequin legs used for support on her stairwell!

And a wall filled with game boards?  Pretty cool, right?  It would be neat if these were on the floor in a game room…

Of course, she decorated her own restroom with a gem-clad toilet seat…

The quotes pinned up on Jo’s wall were particularly appropriate for her home…

Wee!  After lunch, Jenn of Hostess Blog and I enjoyed a little downtime on Jo’s handmade swing…

We then headed on our bus to the Michaels Store in SouthLake.

We checked out the latest new products in the stores.  Of course, I couldn’t get out of the baking section!

Then we headed into their crafting room for some good ‘ole crafting.  There were stations set up for jewelry-making, foam stamping, card-making, cake decorating, and more!

A peek at the foam stamp crafting area…

And more!

We had a roundtable discussion after the whole event with the Michaels team…

Thank you to the Michaels team for such a FUN and informative event!
