Midwest Planner Meet Up Recap

Sunday, October 25, 2015

Hi guys! I just wanted to do a recap of the meet up yesterday in Oak Brook Illinois! It was my first meet up ever and I am so happy I got to meet other planner addicts like myself! First and foremost, if you are not part of the Midwest Group and you live in one of the states listed below, please join us! You can find our group here! If you are not part of a regional planner group and you would like to join, please go to the Planner Con page which can be found here! You should be able to find a group with your state in it. If you cannot find it, message Louise, the admin of the group.

Tori, Claudia, Shayla and I admin the Midwest Group and we would love to see you there so you can be a part of our next meet up!

I havent been to the Chicago area for a few years, so it was nice to be in a more metropolitan area compared to where I'm from! I drove up Friday evening and met Tori at the Doubletree prior to the meet up to set things up. It was so nice to finally meet her and Claudia because I talk to them almost every day!

We had tons of prizes to raffle off including a Day Designer, a few Erin Condren planners, a Happy Planner, an Emily Ley planner and more. Everyone was so generous with their donations and I am so thankful to be part of such an amazing community! Our first winner was Dawn (@housefulofgrls) and she won the Erin Condren planner and a bunch of other EC goodies. Thank you Erin Condren for such an awesome donation!

Here is a picture we got of the huge planner stack!

Here are more raffle prize winners! Claudine was so generous and she brought us 6 washi tape despensors filled with goodies!

Shayla also coordinated a swap and it was definitely a success. Here is a snapshot of the ladies that participated in the swap! I hope you guys left with lots of fun planner goodies!

More swap goodies!

Another highlight of the Meet Up was having Blitsy come demo for us! The girls showed us how to make planner stickers and I think I have a new hobby! Thank you ladies so much for coming! Make sure you follow Blitsy on Instagram @blitsycrafts!

We also did an auction for our friend Rachel @penpalhappyness! Rachel is one of the sweetest people I've ever met and she is in the process of bringing home baby Puckett! We auctioned off 2 goodie bags and we raised over $300 for Rachels adoption fund. We love you Rachel!

  1. Oh man this sounds amazing!! I live like 45 minutes away from Oakbrook. I just got my planner not very long ago so I wouldn't have had much too share but this sounds like a blast!
