I am here at the beautiful Opryland Hotel for the 2010 Blissdom blogging conference.  It is a chance for me to connect with so many other women bloggers that I admire while also learning valuable blogging tips and tricks. 

I want to give a big thank you to my Blissdom sponsors…

Elf-Magic is an amazing company who helps bring joy and magic into homes during the Christmas season.  If you followed me for the Elfcapades in December then you know what I am talking about.


This just in:

In an effort to help Mrs. Claus fulfill her New Year’s resolution, “Out with the old and in with the new,” the elves came up with a great idea — Santa’s Sleigh Specials! They have gathered up all of the extra toys and clothes they found in the workshop and put them here so everyone can take advantage of the surplus goodies from 2009! 

I also want to highlight Janice Mae from Aubrey’s Beads.  She has helped form my passion for paper beading here, here and here.

She has a heart of gold and is one of the most generous sponsors I have met. 


Her work is amazing and you would never have guessed her jewelry is paper.  I am wearing these paper bead creations from her right now. (Click on the pictures to go to her Etsy shop).il_430xN.95800649il_430xN.87660876Thank you for making my attendance at Blissdom 2010 possible!

  1. Just wanted to tell you, honey….Isaac and Kayla were just fine after I picked them up from PDO. Kayla had her bottle and went right down for her nap without incident. Isaac and I cuddled on the chair after his nap. 😉 It was a good afternoon.

    Glad to hear you made it down there safely. So glad you are having a great time!

    What a place, that Opryland Hotel is, huh? Did I mention I want to die there? 🙂

    I love you,

  2. Missed you today – got some awesome accessories today. I made two bracelets for the meeting and they now have new homes. YEAH!

    Hope you are having fun and learning new things to share with us!!!
