I'm Off To Berlin + Some Updates

Hello everyone! I'm off to Berlin for the weekend to throw a bloggers and book party along with Brigitte magazine, Callwey Publishing and Etsy and I can't wait to meet everyone. The guest list is now closed and sadly, the location couldn't fit all of you so we could only accept 50% of the RSVP requests. :( I had no idea so many would reply or I would have chosen a larger location, but now that I know then the next event will be in a large space where we can accommodate everyone. This event will lovely tomorrow, we did so much work behind-the-scenes to ensure that we have our guests taken care of from goodie bags to product and book giveaways, cupcakes to enjoy, there will even be a fun photo booth where we're going to be able to upload photos to the web instantly. We're thinking to do another bloggers event next year and if we do - we'll make sure we can include everyone next time. The German blogging community is huge! moodbosrd

SO! I'll be using Instagram while I'm away, if you use Istagram I'm "decor8" and you can see my photos there as I upload them or you can follow me on Twitter because I'll try to tweet fun glimpses as I go.

This is the final leg of my book tour for 2011 and though it's been an amazingly fun 11 months of traveling to promote my book, being home for a few months will feel real nice too. I have so much decorating to do and lots of projects to share in the months ahead - AND a lot of blogging to do. I'll also be teaching classes at my work studio in Hannover over the winter - I can't wait to announce the class schedule and dates so if anyone wants to hang out with me in my home office for a day or two, I'd certainly love to have you. We can craft, decorate, I can show you some fun blogging tricks and we can drink hot mulled spiced wine. I can even take you shopping to my favorite stores. How's THAT for getting creative?!

I'll see everyone on Monday with a tour of a local shop, some great products I've been meaning to share, and tons of fabulous calendars for 2012 as it's time for my annual calendar round-up to look for that everyday next week. By the way, that photo above is a collection of things I picked up recently - I know the palette if very fresh and spring-like, but I love the color combination still, don't you?

Bye!!!
