Haven Conference 2012 Update

The Haven 2012 Conference wrapped up today.  Two awesome days filled with amazing sessions!

The welcome session was lead by Sherry and John from Young House Love.  They have great chemistry and were a riot!  I love the story about how their business evolved!

After debating with myself on which sessions to attend....and yes, it is sometimes a full out loud debate :)... I finally decided on


Here are photos from some of the sessions......

I so need to try Annie Sloan's Chalkpaint! I'm thinking my son's dresser will be my first victim , I mean trash-to-treasure opportunity.

 Rustoleum had a great cocktail party on Thursday night. Great appetizers, beverages, and jazz music!

The icing on the cake was that I won the drawing for the grand prize pack from Ryobi!  WOW! Gotta have more awesome power tools!  They are going to ship them, so they should be here next week!

Yeah! It reminds me of  the picture of me wearing my tool belt with my wine when we were giving our Master Closet a new life!

The whole conference was great! From what I could see, it ran smooth and bump-free.
Hopefully, they will plan Haven 2013 for next year!

Now, I'm going through business cards of the people I met and checking out their blogs and their social media.  I'm half way through the stack....

If you were at Haven and are swinging by, THANK YOU!  What was your favorite part of the conference? Please answer in the comment section.

  1. Hi Robyn! My favorite part of the conference was meeting new lovely, smart, creative women like yourself! I enjoyed our lunch chat! I am also going through all the business cards I received. Showing support for my fellow bloggers by following along with their blogging journey. I also was inspired to update my blog. I learned so much!
