free ticket

Hi ladies! Liz here, reporting to you live from my laptop...

A while ago my sweet friend Stephanie Nielson posted this quote on her blog. It's so powerful and really spoke to me...
There is in every true woman's heart
a spark of heavenly fire,
which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity;
but which kindles up and
beams and blazes
in the dark hour of adversity.
-Washington Irving
Every one of us has a Spark and that's why we're so excited about this event... to be inspired by other creative woman... by you.
Leave a comment with your name to be entered to win a FREE TiCkEt to SPARK!!

Likely said...

I would love to be chosen for this free ticket. I am coincidentally going to be in the area for my grandmother's 80th birthday party that very week and actually already extended my flight to include going to spark. But just last week I decided I couldn't spend the $300 because one of my good friend's husband (in our ward)just lost his job and I couldn't justify spending the money on something for me when they need it more. Isn't that the way it always goes? We put ourselves on the back burner.

Anyway, I know I will love it. I need something to help me get over my creative anxieties and I really think Spark could help.

Picked or not, thank you. I hope it is everything you dream for it to be!

Sorry for the long comment.

beck said...

This sounds like an amazing weekend and a great way to meet other crafty people! I would love to go!

Katie said...

I read about your event on NieNie's blog, and I am just wondering if novice creatives can attend? My life has been feeling a little "itchy" lately, and it has dawned on me that it is because I have not been listening to, or expressing, that creative spark within me. If you pick me, I will definitely not be the most talented create-ess there, but I'll certainly contribute a passion to learn...and then to share with others! Thanks!

I stumbled onto this blog... I actually can't remember (one blog led me to another and here I am). This sounds fantastic, and is exactly what I need to jump start that fire again. I have been yearning so badly to get my creative juices flowing once again. They have been buried by a few years of meaningless work and laziness, etc... but today is a new day. I am ready to get my "SPARK" on!!!
