Hi y'all!  Last Friday, I got to do something REALLY awesome!  I spent the day at Cutting Edge Stencils' headquarters with some awesome Hometalk Bloggers! Getting to meet these ladies in REAL life was pretty cool. 

Laura and me

I was especially excited to get to hug my sweet friend, Laura in real life! We pretty much giggled at everything throughout the entire event together. It was so much fun!

We got a really cool tour of CES and we got to meet Janna and Greg, the owners of this awesome business!  Janna and Greg both have an extensive background in decorative painting, and are very talented and super creative.  It was such an amazing experience to see the company through their eyes.  They are very passionate about what they do!  I really liked their stencils before, but now I'm smitten with THEM as well!  It was also cool to meet Michelle, who does all of their social media work! We had been tweeting and Instagramming (is that a word?!) back and forth for awhile, so it was cool to see the face behind the tweets! She was truly a sweetheart.

We also got some demonstrations and tips on how to properly stencil both on a tote bag and on a real wall!

Here's Janna using their brand new "Charlotte" stencil, giving us the proper technique and demo.

Laura was the first one up!
