Hanging at Haven

Haven Conf

This past weekend, I went to Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.  It’s a two-day event for DIY bloggers (and enthusiasts).  It was SO fun to be surrounded by this group of people – the people behind the pins on Pinterest!

The conference was filled with pretty parties, amazing sponsors and informative and hands-on sessions.

Home Depot was the main sponsor, and I took a hand-on building class with Home Depot and Ana White.  (Who is not only talented, but she’s really sweet!)  And speaking of Home Depot, my roommate Angela (from Unexpected Elegance) was put in the Home Depot’s Hall of Fame because of her amazing bathroom renovation.

I also was pretty excited to see and meet Miss Mustard Seed.  I read her book “Inspired You,” and started blogging soon after.

It was was such a fun conference, and my brain is overflowing with ideas.
