I had the opportunity to attend the Michaels Makers Summit in beautiful Sonoma, California last month and I’m so excited to share with you the many things I learned. I left with the desire to learn and create new things and to get out of my comfort zone.
The best part?
Thanks to Michaels and Creativebug, you get to take these amazing FREE classes from the comfort of your own home.
You’ll learn what paints to use, the different types of surfaces, blending, color palettes and more. I have been watercoloring all week long and cannot stop!
How to Frame Weave
Annabel shows you how to make your own frame for weaving, how to make designs in your weaving, and she shares many tips and tricks along the way!
Image Transfer Techniques
Learn 4 different transfer techniques that are a piece of cake to do! I’ve never done image transfers and was blown away. My children love to do the packaging tape trick (which is the easiest)!
How to Make Paper Peonies
Learn how to make a GORGEOUS peony in a few simple steps. I love how you also learn bleaching and texture techniques, too.

After taking these 4 classes I went home and checked out the other classes on Creativebug and oh. my. word. where do I begin?
You’ll find hundreds of craft classes in all categories like: sewing, jewelry, fine art, party decor, and more!
Another free class? Check out these watermelon slice and stack cookies!
The Michaels Makers Summit was full of inspiration, hands on creativity, and meeting creative women around the nation. In case you haven’t met all 50 of this year’s Makers, check out each of our blogs and bios here!
