{ the creative connection event--part 1--the road trip }




I just returned from the most amazing experience ever,The Creative Connection Event. Oh my, I don't even know where to begin, so I think I'll start with the road trip. I was an attendee of the event, as well as a vendor in the HandMade Market, so the best thing for me to do was drive from Cincinnati to Minneapolis. Yes, drive. For those who know me, I'm not too fond of driving, and I've never driven that far. I had originally planned on traveling with a couple of people to break up the driving, but I ended up only going with my sister, who is 18 years old, and therefor too young to drive the rented van.

All I can say is thank goodness for satellite radio.



Because we had to drive about 720 miles. One way. But, we saw some fun things along the way on our crazy road trip.

In Indiana, we saw a wind farm.















And a huge commercial { i.e. tourist} farm.











In Illinois we stopped at an Oasis in Chicago-land. How brilliant: gas, food, and restrooms all together, built right over the interstate.













In Wisconsin, we saw tons of places for cheese, and so we decided to stop at a wacky place on the side of the road. Everyone knows that Wisconsin is known for cheese, so we stopped at a place called Humbird Cheese, who claimed to have over 100 varieties. Plus they had a swiss cheese sign and clock, so we just couldn't resist.









We also saw some really cool rock formations, near the Wisconsin Dells.





We stopped to stretch our legs at a rest area near the Black Valley River. The sky was so beautiful on that day.






I had an amazing, amazing experience at the Creative Connection Event, and I'll share more in my next few posts!
