The Creative Connection Event 2011 :

Homeade Summer Popsicle Recipes (And come learn how to throw the perfect party with us at The Creative Connection Event!)

We are SO excited for our upcoming conference next month. The Creative Connection is going to be 3 amazing days full of art, cooking, learning how to build and further businesses and connections with other amazing women, speakers, classes, panels, shopping in our huge market and so much more! (You can still get tickets and come join us in St. Paul in September if you register now! We so hope that you do!)

And now on to the delicious Popsicles and the fabulous party throwing! 

One of the most anticipated classes at Mary Jane’s Farm Day during The Creative Connection is “Creating Fabulous Parties” taught by Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio. Kim’s designs have fueled the printable party trend. Her talents have expanded into photo and party styling, which she enjoys immensely. She has styled shoots for clothing companies, local publications, and HGTV.com. Kim’s work has been featured on MarthaStewart.com, Martha’s Dreamers into Doers site, HGTV.com, and the television program Sonoran Living Live. Her work has also been featured in publications such as InStyle magazine, 202 MagazineThe Arizona Republic, and Go Gilbert! magazine. Kim is also a regular on a local radio show—Women Like You, on Mix 96.9, and a guest contributor for Project Nursery and HomeGoods. 

And as someone who has three boys at home who love popsicles in the summer, I loved these recipes and the free printable that Kim provides to her readers!
