Headed to Haven 2015!

Well, I can’t believe a year has passed and here I am again, getting ready to attend Haven 2015! This will be my 4th year attending the conference, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful experience.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia where the 3 day DIY & professional blogging conference will be held on July 16th-18th.  Over the years I have met and become friends with so many amazing bloggers from all over the country who are passionate about DIY projects, and creating lovely spaces for their homes. I have learned so much about blogging, photography, and home improvement by attending Haven, and this year provides many more opportunities to learn new skills.

I am looking forward to connecting with sponsor representatives and learning about new products for my home. They always have such goodies to share with us and it’s great to be able to try their products first-hand.

If you would like to see more of what Haven is all about, you can click on the years to see my photos of all the fun!

Haven 2014 Recap!

This past weekend I attended the Haven Conference.  Haven is a DIY conference where bloggers come together to meet and attend sessions geared around growing your blog, photography, building relationships with brands, building furniture, painting, and so much more! You can read my recaps from 2012 here, and 2013 here. This is an event I truly look forward to!

One of the best parts of Haven is meeting fellow bloggers from all over the country who enjoy crafting and DIY as much as you do!  This year I was thrilled to meet Gina  The Shabby Creek Cottage , and Kelli Life at 818. I follow their blogs and they are such lovely talented ladies! I met KariAnne  Thistlewood Farms  at last year’s conference and I was happy to see her  for a hug and photo this year. Blurry or not, I am glad to have it! Oh, that guy down on the bottom? That’s HGTV Star Mike Holmes from Holmes on Homes!

I love attending the Haven Conference as it is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others who all share in the DIY spirit. There will be another Haven in 2015! I plan on attending, and I do hope to see you there! One quick tip for ya! I did bring my Canon DSLR camera with me but as you can see, most of my photos are from my phone! You will get caught up chatting, laughing, and making connections. Enjoying the moments is more important than getting the perfect shot.
