Crazy for Crust

Come See Me at Pinners Conference AZ!

Hi everyone! I have some exciting news: I’m going to be a presenter at the Pinners Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona this October. Will you come say hello??

Pinners square

Have you heard of Pinners Conference & Expo? It’s not just for bloggers! Pinners is two events in one: a collection of over 90 classes taught by pros (like me) AND it’s an expo with over 200 vendors talking about all things DIY, food, scrapbooking, crafting, you name it! It’s Pinterest come to life in a conference! And I’m going to be presenting!

You can register for 1 class (mine?) or all of them, and you can even register just to walk the trade show floor. Think of it like one of those Home & Garden expos, but with classes taught by bloggers you see every day on Pinterest!

I’ll be teaching a class all about PIE CRUST. I’m going to demo my favorite pie crust recipe, show you how to make my favorite apple crumb pie, and give you tips and tricks to make lattice and decorative pie crusts. You’ll be able to (hopefully) get your hands dirty, play with dough, and eat some pie. I’m also going to do a GIVEAWAY during my session that will include some amazing prizes to help you make your favorite pie at home!

The great thing about this conference is it’s NOT just for bloggers. Anyone who is in the Scottsdale Area, or anyone interested in all things crafty, foodie, and Pinterest can attend. They even have hotel discounts at a few local hotels. PLUS you’ll get to meet ME! (Ha, and I’ll hope not to pass out while teaching at my first conference.)


Pinners Arizona takes place October 7-8, 2016 at Westward in Scottsdale, Arizona. My class is scheduled for Friday, October 7 at 3:00pm.

This conference is totally affordable too: prices start at $15 for two classes and the packages work up to $99 for a VIP pass. You can save 10% by using the promo code CRAZYFORCRUST at checkout.

Right now when you register you’re just buying your tickets. Once the class registration is open (soon, if not already) you’ll be emailed to register for classes. Be sure to select my PIE class!

Okay, so one more time:

Come see me in SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA this October 7, 2016. I’ll be teaching my first ever class – all about pie crust – at 3pm and I want you there! Make sure my class isn’t empty, mmkay? That would be embarrassing.

REGISTER today using my promo code CRAZYFORCRUST to save 10% off registration!

I’ll see you in October!
