My First Blog Conference… Ever

The Haven (south haven)You aren’t going to believe it.  I can’t believe it either.  Take a breath…

I’m going to my first blog conference.  Yep.  It’s true.

I’m excited.  I’m nervous.  But I’m much more excited.  I’m ready to learn so many new things that my brain will start to hum from information overload (or is that the bubbly?).  I hope I’ll make some new bloggie friends.  I know I’ll laugh and cry, because I’m laughing so hard (with my new bloggie friends).  I can’t wait to be awestruck by all the creativity and positive energy.  I’m sure so many amazing things will happen that I can’t even begin to imagine at this point in time.

In one day… I’m going to my first blog conference.  And not just any conference.  I’m going to Haven in Atlanta, Georgia.

I know.  I’m still pinching myself.

If you’ve never heard of Haven, its tagline is “because there’s no place like home”.  How cool is that?  And don’t you believe it too?  There IS no place like home.Rainbow over gazebo

Haven brings together like-minded DIYers and interior design bloggers who like to  build window seats or paint furniture or sew window treatments or accessorize a bookcase… anything to make a house your own special home.  Doesn’t that sound awesome?  A group of people who love their home and want to make it beautiful and uniquely theirs come together to learn and share ideas.  Sweet!

Ok.  Ok.  I know you’re wondering “Why the heck is Michele going to Haven though?”  She’s never used a drill or a saw or any sort of power tool.  She’s never painted a piece of furniture and she took home ec about a million gazillion years ago, which means she hasn’t sewn a stitch in that long too.  Ok.  Fair point, but…

Can you keep a secret?  Shhh…  I’ll tell you.

I want to learn.  There.  I said it.  I want to LEARN!

As Big Sis M says “Mom you’re the best cooker!”  Well I wasn’t always the best cooker, but I learned.  I took classes.  I practiced.  I burned a few pot roasts.  And I learned.  I want to learn how to use a sander.  I really want to learn how to use a drill, because those things kinda scare me.  I want to paint a piece of furniture and have it stand beautifully in our home.  I want to look around my home and spy the extra special things I did to make our home the best place for Mr. Rosey, the Girlies and me.  More sweet!  Right?

But wait…there’s more.  There will be classes on how to make this rosey little blog a bloomin’ garden of roses.  Yep.  Our Rosey Life will be coming up roses… or something like that.  I’m just so giddy like when the Girlies walk into a candy store… eyes wide open and smiling.Chocolate cupcake

So that’s the good news.  I’m going to my first blog conference this weekend and I can’t wait!  And do you want to know about the icing on top of the cake (I’m staying with the sweet theme here)?  I’ll bring back all the creative goodness I learn and share it with you too.  I’ll post pictures to instagram.com/ourroseylife over the weekend, if you want some sneak peaks.
