Northeastern Regional TpT Seller Meet-Up! #TPTFLOCK

This past weekend (May 2), 
I had the opportunity to attend the first 
Northeastern Regional TpT Seller Meet-Up 
in Binghamton, NY!  This meet-up did NOT disappoint!  

First, I was on the look out for Jennifer Jones from Hello Literacy!  My first ever "big" TpT purchase was made at HER store!  What TpT seller doesn't need tons and tons of new fonts to work with (my all time favorite being Type Hype)?  Check them out!
Here is my selfie with her... maybe just a little too up close on me, but oh well :).

Here is a picture of the awesome presentation that she presented that was helpful to all TpT sellers, both novice and veterans!  
Side note:  I wish I knew where she got that dress from!

However, before I saw Jennifer Jones, I was starstruck when I saw Amy Berner!  I was like, I know that face from the forums!  I had no idea she'd be there, too!  She took notes throughout the whole day to take back to TpT headquarters!  It's awesome to know that our suggestions/ideas are really valued! :)

The meet-up truly was AMAZING!  Not only did I spend the day talking and learning with others, I received a number of awesome swag gifts throughout the day.  Like somebody shouted out,

"It feels like we're on Oprah!"

Check out the gift tables! The first picture shows prizes donated from numerous TpT sellers, Etsy Sellers, business, etc.!  SO MUCH COOL stuff!  The second picture shows the gift exchange items we brought to exchange with another seller at the meet-up.  We each brought something that we truly love using in our classroom-- What a great idea!

Now check out almost all of the swag I took home!

Here is a picture of two friends of mine that teach and sell with me!  I'm in the middle!  To left of me is Melanie from Purposefully Primary and to the right is Kelsey from Kiddie Kreations by Kelsey... check out their stores! :)

I CAN'T WAIT until next year's Meet-Up!  I hope to see all my new friends there again plus some new faces! Until then, maybe I'll see you at the TpT Conference in Vegas this July?  I hope so!  Look for me :)
