Attending the MyPrintly HP Printer Mom-Meet-Up
I was invited to attend the +MyPrintly HP Mom-Meet-Up presented by Maria Bailey and the HP Team. I was so honored and excited to attend this event. I was so much fun to be able to bring my mother along for this fun journey. This event was allowing us to see the first use of some pretty cool new printer paper that allows for people to print from their social media accounts and allows for a caption to be printed onto the photo and then you can stick your photos onto surfaces. How COOL is that?!?! Yeah I think so too. :-) Now we were able to print our social media photos and made cards by using two HP apps that are available. One is the HP Social Media Snapshots app, and the HP Cards app. Both of which were fun and easy to use. Some of my photos did not work in the apps due to its size. Play around and keep switching photos and you will find the ones that work and the ones that do not.
We attended this event in Portland, Oregon. It was set up all nicely with a variety of tables and lots of HP Printers that were named some pretty fun things like Daiquiri and Mai Tai. These printers were there for us to print our great +Disney memories as well as other photos we had. Then we had some fun arts and crafts projects to do. At a couple tables there was a picture frame decorating station that allowed for our creative Mommy sides to be unleashed. I had the pleasure and honor of meeting +The Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo and joined her table for lots of fun, Periscope app using, crafting, laughter, and fun story telling. What a joy to laugh and giggle with so many fun ladies, (and a few men too.) Love the curly hair too, Kathy! I have a head of that myself. ;-)
At the next fun craft table we were able to decorate our own cupcakes with Mickey Mouse confetti, icing, and of course the famous @MickeyMouse ears on top for finishing touches. My mom could not help but make two cupcakes. She said one was just not enough to unleash her creative sides. I took my time and enjoyed the mingling that was going on at this table. Many fun stories that were being shared about adventures to +Disney Parks and all the things they experienced and saw.
The food and beverages were very nice and tasty as well. Offering a wide variety of dishes to satisfy many taste buds. I enjoyed myself and the food for sure. A little wine was a nice way to cool down with it being over 90 degrees in Portland that day.
Of course no event would be complete without some raffles. Congratulations to all the raffle winners and some pretty amazing prizes they won!! :-) To finish the night off, everyone received a swag bag of goodies from HP. Some fun arts and crafts things, some yummy things to eat, and some pretty neat things to use in the future such as a Mickey Mouse travel tag, some HP Printer paper with the sticky side to print some social media photos, and even some blank cards to use and print invitations or birthday cards on. I must say this was one SWEET MyPrintly HP Mom-Meet-Up in Portland, Oregon.
Thank you very much for the fun I had, and for allowing me to share it all with my mom!
