I normally show pictures of interior decorating projects, but today I wanted to let you know I’ll be a mentor at the Haven Conference for bloggers this summer. The Haven conference has been around since 2011, but my first time was 2015. If you are a blogger in the DIY/Home Decor space this is valuable information. If you are not a blogger, I think you will still find this interesting.
It was so exciting to see my friends in person. I got to hug so many for the first time ever.
Here I am teaching my photography class in 2016.
I want to welcome everyone coming here from the Haven Blog Hop from MOM 4 REAL.
Here is another photo from my photography session. I look so serious, I must have been explaining the difference between an aperture and an f stop.
Below is a photo from Haven 2015. Here you see Kriste from Rosemary and Thyme on the left, then the sisters from the Pink Tumbleweed (no link due to a current security issue they are having on their site) Marian (Miss Mustard Seed) and me.
Truly, Haven is one of the highlights of my summer.
If you are following the blogs on the Haven blog hop, be sure to check out the next blog at THE LETTERED COTTAGE.
You can find all the blogs participating in the Haven Mentor blog hop below. Hope to see you there this summer.

You have inspired me – going to look into the Haven conference! Is there a link to find out about dates and events?
Lisa, there should be a link in the post. but here it is. http://www.havenconference.com/ Let me know if you are going!!
I’m a bundle of excitement and nerves at the thought of attending this conference. I’m afraid I may be a little star struck.
I hope I have the opportunity to meet you there.

Very fun to see pics of you… and fun to see a pic of Yvonne, as well. 🙂
Top 10%??? Of ALLLLLL blogs or just decor blogs? Goodness!
Julie, our podcast is in the top 10% of all podcasts, not just the decor ones.
Julie Briones says
That is SOOOO awesome! CONGRATS!!!!
Thank you for keeping dreams alive so we can visualize them and make them real.
Carole Shiles says
This was really an interesting blog. The Haven sounds like a powerhouse for all bloggers. Wish I could be a fly on the wall!
I always thought that Haven was just for designers and bloggers who make $$…never thought I would qualify! I am just a little blogger thats been doing this for about 5 years or so….
Would have loved to know more before the dates….it’d be nice to meet you and the other bloggers I follow….
Well, maybe next year….
Nancy, it’s for bloggers at any stage of the game. Some people come to Haven before they even start their blog. Would love to meet you!
Nancy, Haven is in July. Let me know if you end up coming!

I’m not a blogger but love to read them and get inspired.
Hi Anita, congratulations on the podcast. That’s an amazing achievement. I’m attending my first Haven conference this year which is no easy feat given that I live in Australia. I’m looking forward to meeting so many inspiring bloggers there. Thanks Kylie
Hope to meet you Kylie!!! Yay!!
Looking forward to it 🙂
