A lovely box lunch was served about midday and there were giveaways, ideas, instructions and general good times. It was hosted by Terry from http://thevintagebricoleur.blogspot.com/. I know, eventually Terry will post pictures from this gathering. See them here.
Connie Spade (a licensed massage therapist and instructor) gave out complimentary 5 minute massages for either our neck or hands. What a treat! Nicole from The Little Blog took tons of pictures also. Terry suggested that I bring my camera ("as all good bloggers should do"), but when I saw the wonderful machines that some had, I was too shy to even turn it on.
I met so many lovely ladies. There was:
http://frenchcountrycottage.blogspot.com/ was the instructor for this day of blogging tips. She came prepared with a slide show (almost just like what we had in grade school - remember those?) She had some very important tips to share and we all had questions. The main question of the day seemed to be "Why are you blogging? For profit or fulfillment". That was my take on it anyway. Along with tons of information that I need to digest, if I could only read my notes...
I met some other very important people like:
Laurel has some incredible photography pictures that just make you drool with envy.
Is a new blogger and may change her name, as when we tried to find her blog, we came up with some other sites that she wasn't too pleased to see. She has so many ideas that she has already tried and taken pictures of, and is ready to share with us. Kim from "Not Too Shabby" wants to come up with a name for Melody, I know it will be a 'doozie' and fit her exactly.
Linda had some advice on obtaining your own domain... I have to check it out.
A wise woman who has taken her years of decorating and is now sharing with us how to transform our homes. Also so much fun to visit with.
Paula's blog is about her farm, and the wonderful produce, like vegetables, fruits and chickens and eggs that the farm produces - with her help, of course!
has a blog that showcases her vintage art styles. She uses western, laces and vintage finds to highlight her art.
Kim is part owner of the store "Not Too Shabby" in Folsom, CA with Bobbi. They are right on "Antique Street" - not really - but right there with all the good stores in Folsom. Visit her blog and see what they have going.
Ah, another wonderful vintage treasure chest for decorating, and such.
Whoa! she caught me right between the eyes with the first few words...
thedailyparagraph.com (I did get an email from Beth with the correct address - Horray!) this should take you directly to her blog this time...
she has an awesome picture sense - her photos of people and places make you want to see more
Lynne and Lauren who, from what I understood, don't have a blog yet... but want to.
and, I'm ashamed to admit, more that I didn't interact with to get their blog addresses.
If you have time, and I say you must make time, visit these blogs and see what they have going. I have visited them all and want to return and explore more.
