Recently Cheryl Bledsoe fulfilled her dream to bring Jeff Pulver and his traveling #140conf to the Northwest!! She presented the idea; acquired the funds to make it happen; coordinated about 65 different speakers; gathered a team of volunteers; presented a session herself; attended and hosted a few tweet-ups; and all in all, did a fantastic job pulling off a WILDLY successful and fun event!  In fact, Mr. Pulver was so proud of what Cheryl put together that he invited her to be one of 30 VIPs for today and tomorrow’s HUGE #140conf in New York City!  She flew there and spent the day at the conference – I am sure she’ll have a lot of fun stories to share with us when she returns.

Never heard of a #140conf? It’s a Twitter thing – we only have 140 characters to type a message in a “tweet” (similar to a text message), and this conference is publicized through and put on by avid Twitter users.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
