Design Bloggers Conference

Can I tell you a story?

A story about a girl who loved design and decorating and fixing up a 1940's cottage
and fell in love with the idea of blogging.

Taking photos every time something changed in the living room
or styling a new vignette 
or even sharing about that time 
reupholstered 'Charles Faudree' inspired sofa.

She wasn't a traditional 'designer'
but she knew that that a beautiful room filled with things that make you smile
was something that she loved.

A couple years ago, that same girl saw this amazing conference that was all about 
interior designers and blogging.
It sounded perfect. 
Learn more about blogging 
meet other bloggers 
listen to s interior designers and influential people
speak about design and trends and blogging

She thought about going... but wasn't sure if it was right for her.
She was more DIY design than traditional.
But a conference all about 
design, decorating, home and garden
and blogging
sounds like a dream, right?

It has been a conference that I have been thinking about going to 
for several years now and for one reason or another- it hasn't worked out to go each year

this diy design blogging girl is 
to be going this year.

Though I haven't been before
I can tell you that I have heard nothing but amazing things 
from people who have gone to it.
Again and again and again.
And who say they wouldn't miss it.

So several of you have asked- what is it all about?
It is about design and blogging and how it all intertwines and comes together.
It is about building business and relationships and learning new ways to grow.
Plus- inspirations-
the keynote speakers are pretty impressive.

 Cynthia Rowley, India Hicks, 
Mary McDonald and Nathan Turner
