I was still on the fence as to whether or not to go again this year ….when I went on the site a few weeks ago and saw the speakers:
MY MIND WAS IMMEDIATELY MADE UP TO GO!!!!
Prior to attending my first conference in 2013…I was still trying to find my NICHE…(this is a BIG WORD in blogging) You need to know your NICHE so you can consistently direct your energies.
I still struggle with “Where do I fit in? AS AN ARTIST?
DECORATOR? ARTIST WHO DECORATES? OR Just a (super) fan of design.
ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!
ALL I DO know is that when I fell into this group…I felt the most “AT HOME”. Many of the designers have big names in the business and I must admit, I was a little intimidated…I did not want to seem like a poser trying to be a Designer…but I was welcomed with open arms as an ARTIST who complements Design and in the meantime I have expanded my Decorating experience with so much inspiration and guidance from my new friends! I CAN’T WAIT…!! Every time I have gone I get a little scared and excited and every single time I make amazing connections that bring friendships and work!
in FACT, LAST YEAR, on the way out the door, my friend Lisa Mende introduced me to the designer Traci Zeller who she shares a design studio with. Traci and I then collaborated on there 2015 Homearama design house in an Equine neighborhood and I painted 13 Horse paintings!
There is a special rate UNTIL January 24 if you are at all interested. I cannot say enough about how worth every penny it is! The connections alone are worth the price of the ticket!
Also, do not forget to nominate your favorite blogger for the Design Bloggers Hall of Fame Awards. Nominations for the Design Bloggers Hall of Fame are now open.You do not need to be attending. – hurry, nomination deadline is the end of the day (Eastern Standard Time) on January 15, 2016.
The awards will be presented live, and the inductees recognized during the 2016 Design Bloggers Conference at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta on March 7, 2016.
MAYBE I WILL SEE SOME OF YOU THERE! LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE GOING !!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
