What's in my Conference Bag for HAVEN 2013



pencils | notebook | media kit | business cards | iPad | iPhone | bag

For those of you who haven't heard the news... I will be teaching one of the classes at Haven this year!!   Kinda crazy.  The even crazier part are my fellow instructors (who happen to be two of my favorite bloggers) Emily A. Clark & Sarah Macklem of the Yellow Cape Cod!!  Sounds fun right?!?  

Last year Haven was my first ever blog conference & I was, well, terrified.  I didn't know what to bring, what to say or who to talk to.  And while I was a bit of a wallflower, I did manage to meet some amazing people.  Just remember that everyone is there for the same reasons... to learn (yes) & have a great time!

I think I took everything & the kitchen sink to the conference last year (like my laptop & a full size college ruled filled back to school binder!) & after getting even more swag, my bag was overflowing (& crazy heavy)!  This year I will be taking the necessities (& a few of my personal must haves!) 



Can't wait to meet all of y'all in person!!

  1. I am so excited and as a first time attendee was curious about what to bring. My back and shoulders will definitely be thanking you as I am the worst packer ever. I will for sure be taking your advice! ;) Jesse @ Scout & Nimble

    1. They are Gwen! Basically a little blog resume... I took full size versions last year, but thought a smaller size would be easier to manage this go around ;).

  4. I'm so upset that I will miss the conference. I would have loved to meet you, but I chose 5 weeks in Germany with my family (like every year) instead. I really hope the conference will be on a different date next year.
    Love all your stylish conference accessories ;)

  13. Ah Kristen - I found my way here via Emily Clark and Saturday 6.. as i'm looking around i'm like, hey, I know this person! I was in the class you did at Haven :) I really enjoyed it, and afterwards I showed you a pic of my mantle and asked your quick opinion. I am so in love with your blog and your house pics - so glad I found it! PS - I love the O-Gloss from Smashbox, my absolute favorite!
