* * THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED * *
First off, we’d like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to leave us a comment on our blog this past weekend. As with every post we publish that receives comments, we feel so humbled that you would take the time to stop by and leave a message for us to find. Kev and I are sensitive creatures, and your messages have a way of touching to the very core of our beings. The encouragement and comfort we feel from them means more to us than you’ll ever know, and we’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embedding your energy and spirit into the pages of this e-journal of ours. The story wouldn’t be the same without you!
And speaking of blog readers & writers getting together for a good time…
Who wants to win a ticket to the Haven Conference?!
Haven is happening in Atlanta, (June 21-22, 2012) and I had the esteemed pleasure of designing their little paint roller logo for them last year. At the time, I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to attend the conference, but it looks like not only are we going to be able to go, Kev and his photography-biz partner, Josh, will also be hosting two sessions on Beginner Photography while we’re there, too! Fun!
Here’s the low-down on what the Haven Conference is all about…
Haven Conference is a place to celebrate your DIY spirit. You’ll find hands-on sessions led by fellow DIY bloggers who will share their knowledge on subjects such as painting furniture, shooting photography, and using power tools. For those looking to learn more about the business side of blogging, there will be sessions on topics that include social media, and how to monetize your blog. Most importantly, Haven Conference will be a place of encouragement. There will be time set aside to mingle with one another and share DIY stories. The DIY/home blogging community is a special place, and we encourage you to form connections with those in it so you can walk away feeling refreshed and inspired!
Up for grabs is one (
$199) FREE ticket to Haven. (Ticket winner will be responsible for travel fees to and from Atlanta) The conference will start at 8:00am (ET) on Thursday, June 21 and end at 11:00pm (ET) on Friday, June 22, 2012. It’ll be held at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta-Perimeter hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, and the hotel is offering folks attending the conference a discounted rate of $89/night.
If you’d like to throw your name in the virtual hat for a chance to win the ticket, leave one comment on this blog post and we’ll randomly select a winner on Wednesday (February 22, 2012) at 8:00am (Central Time).
Good luck, and hope to see you at Haven!
