Still “Synergizing” …

Synergy Conference 2008It is hard to believe that is was two weeks ago when I was still packing to attend the National Polymer Clay Guild.s  Synergy conference in Baltimore. The conference turned out to be a resounding success, thanks to a large cadre of dedicated and visionary organizers and volunteers. For more on how the whole thing stated see Kim Cavender’s blog post on the Seeds of Synergy. Unfortunately, as I was presenting a seminar, I was unable to attend the seminar on blogging given by Cynthia Tinapple, Susan Lumoto and Alison Lee. I imagine one of their tips was keep your posts short, sweet and include no more than three links? BUT! there is a whole lot of blogging going on…..

  • Slides and Notes from Kathleen Dustin’s Presentation can be found on Elise Winter’s  site Polymer  Art Archive
  • Further reporting on the conference and Judy Dunn’s presentation “Should I or Shouldn’t I? can be found on her Arteprenuer blog
  • Insight on the Artistic Voice discussions can be found on Dalke Dorosow’s Blog Fandango
  • There are lots of fun pictures on Donna Kato’s blog- both of Synergy and Cabin Fever
  • Iris  Mishey has posted photos and reports of the conference on Her Israel based site
  • Martha Aleo the intrepid reporter for the Philadelphia area Guild took over 300 photos and is posting them on her blog Ornamento
  • Moon  Room Musing by Amy , some thoughts on preparing for the conference and a thorough reporting on each day of the conference
  • Janice Arbanel featured the Synergy Conference in her Marvelous Monday’s post this week
  • Jenn  Dorien at Duck Run has comments on the conference and pictures of her knitting
  • Libbly Mills, as usual is thoughtful and insightful and has also posted this week on the importance of backing up one’s blog
  • On page 427 ! of her  Polka Dot Creations blog Lisa Clarke has posted her observations and experiences
  • Barb Fajardo has posted about the conference on her blog
  • And in case you would enjoy some tea while you read all these posts on Karen’s site
  • You can find another post here at Eugena Topina’s blog
  • Melanie West has pictures  of the water slide decals she had at the vendor’s fair  here
  • There are some great pictures of the conferenc on Ponsawan Sila’s blog
  • Cynthia Blanton has some more pictures and great information on the seminars she attended
  • Maureen Carlson posted about Making Choices on her blog- “Whistling through the Cracks” also check out her poem about this theme

If I run lean on posting material for tomorrow’s post…perhaps I can post on “How to tell if you spend too much time surfing/reading blogs?”
