First there was Haven, which was definitely my highlight of the summer. I feel really bad that in my recap post I left someone off of the “awesome attendees” list. So now I want to take a second to tell you to visit Julia at JustSomethingIWhippedUp. She is a BRAND.SPANKING.NEW blogger, and is fixing up a house back in Boston, which makes her near and dear to my heart.
In addition to the conference I also wrote about Hands of Haven day in honor of Habitat for Humanity.
While visiting the east coast for Haven I stopped by mom mom’s house and helped her upgrade her bathroom vanity backsplash:
I actually have a few other projects to share from that visit. I can’t wait for you to see her other bathroom!
Hands down, my post popular post this month was not a DIY one at all, but was about the trip back home where I had a LIFE ALTERING experience with a stranger on my flight.
Of course Haven wasn’t the only conference I attended this past July. I also attended BlogHer'14 right here in San Jose, and although I wasn’t able to connect with as many bloggers in my niche, it was still a TON of fun.
I did get a few projects done in between all my traveling, including organizing our playroom and giving you a tour:
I also set up a Silhouette work station which helped me get rid of a lot of clutter that used to be housed on the dining room table:
I had one super fun and whimsical craft this month, my decoden candy jar:
And a brussel sprout recipe collection rounds off the month (to balance off the sugar from that candy jar!):
I actually have plans to attend one more conference in August and then hopefully I can jump back into some big projects. So much to do.. so little time..
So what have you been up to?
