I recently got back from the Haven Conference (my first blog conference!), so I thought I’d share some details! (Haven Conference is a blog conference for DIY bloggers like me!) I got to meet many of my favorite bloggers, received a lot of great tips about blogging and DIY projects, met representatives from some terrific brands and brought a lot of swag home!
The below picture is of me with Ashley from Domestic Imperfection. We met up at the Atlanta airport and shared lunch together at our hotel with Julia of Cuckoo 4 Design and Ursula of Homemade by Carmona. It was fun hanging out with those gals! My neighbor at Haven was Kathy of A Delightsome Life. You should really check out her blog — she blogs about a relaxed cottage life. Sweet!
The conference was held in Atlanta last week. The conference opened up with a presentation sponsored by Home Depot. The speaker was Chip Wade of HGTV!
I love this video captured by The Happier Homemaker! In the video, Haven team Rhoda, Sarah, Beth, Chris,Traci, and Haven events planner Kristin, performed an awesome rap about being a DIY blogger! They had some pretty impressive dance moves! I love the lyrics, too! BLOG, BLOG, BABY!
One of the classes I took was taught by sister bloggers Whitney and Ashley of Shanty 2 Chic. The class was quite fun and well attended!
At the class, I made a cute DIY photo clipboard using Rust-O-Leum stain. The stain was quite easy to use and apply!
I attended several of the classes with Ashley of Our Temporary Home. You should check out her blog!
Besides learning a lot of wonderful blogging tips and meeting some awesome bloggers at the Haven conference, I took home a lot of free conference swag! I was lucky that I was able to get it all into my suitcase for the trip back home!
We were shown this video at the Haven Conference at the welcome session — it features Haven Maven team, speakers and footage from Haven 2013. It’s set to one of my favorite songs!
