BlogPodium Ready (sorta)

I'm heading on a little solo adventure this weekend to BlogPodium. I'm so excited to see some awesome people, soak up some knowledge and inspiration, and diagonal sleep in a king size bed. woot, woot!

I dusted off my cards from last year's bloggy adventure to put to use again. They're still good aside from the lack of an instagram url (funny, there is no way I'd skip that nowadays... how quickly technology changes).

I was inspired by (ok, totally copied) DIY queen Cassie and decided to fancy them up for 2013 with a gold leaf pen. Best invention ever, I love the shiny gold edges! They're all set to go in the awesome gift card holder I picked up from the dollar bin at Target. Score.

Blog Business Cards (gold leaf pen edging)

Also, did I mention I will be meeting Sarah Richardson??! Yes, pinch me. Along with some other lucky bloggers, I'll be touring her office, sipping tea and chatting all about her new show 'Real Potential' (it airs Sept 19 on HGTV Canada). If you're a fan, you know how crazy exciting this is. Yep, it is going to be a good week.

And what was I thinking planning a family photo session and a trip to BlogPodium all in the same week!?? Trust me when I say this is the tidied version of what my bedroom has looked like this last week (or two - sorry Mike!).

Packing Mess

Who else is going to BlogPodium this weekend? And what are you wearing?? haha.

I'm super excited and super nervous, please come say hi if you're there too!

  23. First off, I just happened onto your blog from Pinterest. Secondly, I've already bookmarked you! Third, these cards! They are what I've been searching the internet for! How do I find the maker of these lovely cards???

  24. I love the business cards and hope they were a big hit. But i have to say I'm a bit jealous that you meet Sarah Richardson and that the new show only aired on HGTV Canada. I remember watching her design show over and over and over again when I lived in Vancouver. Then we moved to California and I had to wait for her new show. I record all her episodes and yes, watch them over and over again. Hope both her office and her were super inspiring.
