What sparks you? Nancy Wyatt

When April asked me to share what Sparks me I heard crickets chirping. I kid you not! Ha!
Then I asked myself what does Spark my creativity?

For me it’s many things, its colors, photographs, pretty papers, digital designs and Pinterest of course! These days most if not all of my projects start out with digital kits, my printer and I are having a mad love affair these days! I love creating hybrid projects and I must say it’s helped me keep down the clutter in my studio. Incase you didn’t know, I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the cReative Design Team members for Rhonna Designs. If you’ve been to prior Spark events then you’ll know Rhonna Farrer in fact she will be at Spark this year so keep an eye out for her.

While I am here I also wanted to share with you one of my other passions. Making friends! Yes, I am one of those whom never meets a stranger! Just ask my husband, who by the way is the total opposite of me! I crave making friends and so it was only natural that I wanted to put together a pre-Spark dinner gathering last year for Spark No. 2 and again this year for No. 3!

This is not meant to take away from the actual Spark the Event, it was simply put together to allow for some of those traveling to Spark for the first time to get to know a friendly face. This is especially great for those coming to Spark solo, which by the way I think Rocks! We will be doing a small Swap at our pre-Spark dinner, nothing too complicated. I simply asked those attending the meet & greet dinner to bring something homemade or even store bought that makes their heart happy. Something that their new Spark Sister will enjoy, something that will bring back special memories of a new found friendship at Spark No. 3.

I hope to meet you at Spark; it truly is a special event! The amount of handmade d├ęcor that goes into the event is simply amazing and will leave you feeling so special! So, if you see me at Spark, please say Hi! And I may or may not be wearing my paper mustache, ha!

In the meantime, I'd love for you to stop on by for!

I too cannot wait for Spark, though today I'm beginning to feel a little scared ... yikes ! I've never traveled alone or done anything like this before ... I'm really going out on a limb here. And Nancy ... thank you for thinking of this pre gathering ... it WILL help people feel a little more comfy. Like Debbie ... I'll give you a TX sized hug as well :)

YEAH!! I Can't wait!! =)
I found out about Spark last year after I had been watching the House of 3 web shows (which I just LOVED) I really didn't know about the WHOLE world of fun events that were even out there until then!! It opened my eyes to the world of Digital and all of the fun ways to use them!! I fell in LOVE with the ladies at the LIVE WEBSHOW from last years Spark and KNEW I wanted to go this year!! =D
So I am coming solo from Nebraska and I CAN'T wait to meet and make NEW friends and to create AMAZING ART!!
THANKS for sharing I look forward to the WHOLE event!! =D

How do I find out the details of this "Pre-Spark" meet and greet? I'm coming by my self and it would be nice to meet someone before hand :)

Mrs Morty,
You can go to to find out about the meet & greet. Unfortunately we only had enough room to seat 50 guest in the banquet area. But I suggested other still come to dinner at Carrabba's if they wanted to and be seated in the main dining room which is near the open banquet room. I know there is someone else that is planning to come alone so you could be seated with Angelica. I spoke to the manager and he said that he would be seat others in tables near our area. Then you could simply walk over and visit and participate in the swap too. See the post dated 9/5 and the others for more info.
