I bought my ticket for the OK Planner Crawl months ago – and while I don’t have an exact estimate, I’m pretty sure that all 73 spots sold out in under an hour. I’d never been to a planner crawl before, only local planner meetings (which I love) so I was a bit hesitant, especially because I didn’t know what my $79 (with tax and fees) would get.
I’m going to tell you – it gets a lot – the video below is a bit of a peek at all the awesome stuffs that came along with the ticket price – but please continue reading after you watch, because there is so much to this awesome event.
First, the ladies of OK Planner Crawl busted their bootays and it was clear – the Theme “Under The Big Top” was awesome and there wasn’t a detail left unfinished. Balloons, carnival games and a lot of on-theme prizes and swag. Each table of 7 was sponsored and our Sponsor, Teapot Paperie did a phenomenal job – I considered sponsoring a table and to be honest, I’m glad I didn’t because I would have been shown up for sure – I only think I’m creative, these sponsors really, really are.
I was a bit shy about going (I know, who can imagine a shy Brandy) but I only know a few local planners and I was a crawl noob but fortunately, my new friend Jordan held down a chair for me and I ended up sitting with the few ladies I do know from my planner group and meeting a few more that are just fab.
Everyone brought tablemate gifts – you already get an incredible amount of swag but now all of these already overly generous folk are also digging deeper and being even more thoughtful with planner related gifts and treats (side note, I ate all the candy at one time. Maybe that’s why I couldn’t sleep…)
There were sessions where I actually had many take aways – both functionally and inspirationally – there were hilarious but fun carnival style games and a ton of conversation. Being around a bunch of ladies who drool all over paper and washi and stickers in the same way I do (and some wayyyy more so) was an absolute priceless adventure.
If you have the opportunity to head to a Crawl or any other sort of planner related event near you, crawl out of that shell and make a mad dash. I’ll be sitting at my laptop the next time tickets go on sale madly refreshing to grab my spot to the OK Planner Crawl next time too!Here are the awesome sponsors that I had the opportunity to grab swag and such from. There were so many many more:
