Crayola VIP NYC Pop Art Pixies Event – Part 1

Crayola treated my tween daughter, Sammi, and me to the most amazing VIP Pop Art Pixies event in NYC on November 19 – November 21.  We’re big fans of Crayola already and huge fans of travel, especially to New York City, so it was easy to say yes when were asked to attend! And let me tell you when Crayola says they’re putting on a VIP party, they mean it. We felt like royalty from the minute we accepted to the minute we arrived home and even a bit afterward too.

Having the time to bond with Sammi, getting time to craft with the Crayola Pop Art Pixies products, meeting other bloggers and their daughters and visiting sites in New York City was one of the best times I’ve had hands down. We started off flying into LaGuardia, where we were met by the Crayola gang who whisked us off to the luxurious W Times Square Hotel. We met up on the 5th floor where were given Tote bags, ID tags and T-Shirts with our very own Pop Art Pixies Avatar. Then, we had time to go to our room, take it all in (if possible), look at the view and get changed for the VIP Pop Art Pixie Premiere Party Dinner.

Before entering the party, we walked the pink carpet. Sammi was too shy to be interviewed, but she was just getting warmed up. Inside we found a room full of moms and daughters talking, eating and smiling. We joined in and soon began one of the Pop Art Pixies crafts we’d enjoy. That night, along with the delightful company, delicious food and courteous service, Sammi and I took time to work on the crafts together. That was such a joy. I found it so relaxing. Sammi thought they were fun and liked using her creativity. Doing something one on one that is peaceful, not competitive, and allowed us to talk is a real gift.

After the party, we said goodnight to new friends and some we’ve known for a while and headed up to our room on the 52nd floor. As excited as we were, the next day was a full day and we had to wake up early. When we were ready to slip into our comfy beds, Sammi hugged me and told me that she was having a great time. That made the start of our Crayola event even more special.

  1. I am sooooo happy that I finally got the chance to meet you and Sammi! I hope we will get to see each other again real soon!

    Same here Annie! We’re still reliving the trip and smiling about it. It would be great to see you again too!

  3. How fun! My cousins are 8 and 11 and I would love to take them to NYC one day.

  4. Sounds more like Aspergers to me, even though she doesn’t like people, she seems a bit TOO social for autism. Autism seems like it would have been noticed by SOMEONE a long time ago, it’s a lot easier to not notice Aspergers and just assume that’s your child’s personality. I have a good friend who’s brother has Aspergers and they didn’t realize until he was in sixth grade, but now he’s in eighth grade and he’s not a social butterfly, but he does have a decent circle of friends. He accomplished this through therapy. Well whatever it is or isn’t, good luck with your daughter. (:
