2014 Haven Maven

When I moved back to Baltimore last may, I left behind a group of friends that I had grown to love dearly. We where all DIYers and hung out, went thrift store shopping, and did shows. We "got" each other

So when I moved back, I felt lost. I missed that group of people who understood how my mind worked, because theirs worked the same. So when I went to Haven last year, I was so excited. These too, where my people! I spent three days with other women just like me, and I was in heaven. When tickets went on sale this year, I bought mine the day they were available

For those of you who don't know what Haven is, it is a conference specifically for DIY bloggers. It is a great way to network with people, learn good info and meet with potential sponsors

Sizzix was there this year, with their crafting machines. Man do I want one! They had a bunch of projects they did using the equipment. We got to play around with some of it and make a cute flower. I already have a ton of decorating and organizational ideas for their products. I'll bet you could make party décor too!

Here is Serena from Thrift Diving playing with some bubbles! 

Here, I am posing with Mandy from Vintage Revivals, who decorated for this luncheon. She did such a cute job, and it was great for photo ops!

Modern Masters was there with their front door paint. I love their product and I am so excited to try this paint out for my own front door

Ballard Designs was there, and put cute vignettes all over. They have such AWESOME furniture

Finally, here is a picture of me and Mindi, the Sawdust Girl. She is awesome and has an amazing blog. She is like the queen of power tools!


  1. This looks like a blast! I haven't been to a convention yet, was hoping to go to The Sits girl one that was hosted in Philadelphia, but didn't make it. Hopefully there will be another one next year. I never realized Mandy was so tall, unless she was wearing really big heels! I'm 6 ft myself so I always notice other tall women!
