Ok, this will be a photo heavy post 🙂 I want to show you all the goodies that I got at HAEDCon. Some were gifts, some I won in drawings and some I bought… well I bought a lot 😀

First is the HAEDCon goodie bag presenting Hannah Lynn´s design.

I bought two thread packs on HAED´s website and picked them up at HAEDCon. It´s for QS April Fairy and Hidden Harbour. They look so pretty 🙂

I bought Hannah Lynn´s goodie bag and it is so super cute. It´s a wooden box that looks like a book.

After HAEDCon I went to Joanns and Michaels in Portland to stash up on DMC theads. I kitted up about 7 new HAED projects. Can´t wait to start them all 😀

HAEDCon 2017

Last weekend was HAEDcon 2017 and I was so lucky to be able to go 🙂 It was so amazing!!! HAEDCon was held in Seaside OR, which is a cozy little town by the ocean.

I had a direct 8 hour flight from KEF airport to Portland OR airport. I started my journey by having a cocktail at the airport 🙂

I landed in Portland around 6 pm local time. The drive to Seaside takes 2 hours. I didn´t want to drive to Seaside in the dark so I stayed in Portland for the night and drove to Seaside early in the morning.

I was in Seaside around 11 am. HAEDCon didn´t start until 1 pm so I decided to walk around. The weather was amazing and the sun was shining.

At 1 pm it was time to attend HAEDCon 2017. The convention center was very close to my hotel so it was just a short walk away.
