Exciting new things!

Wow! I can't say I'm the best at keeping up with writing this blog - but all that is about to change! To be honest, I never really had much of a reason to write here before, but recently, I've been interested in starting up a bunch of new exciting ventures and it involves doing a lot of blogging, so here goes. 

First of all, I'd like to state that I'll be attending BlogPodium in Toronto on September 21st. It's really my sister (http://www.countrychicrenovator.com) that asked me to go, otherwise I probably would have never even heard of it.

On top of that, this whole blogging thing has inspired me to go ahead with something that I've always wanted to do, and that is, create my own line of stationery and home goods. I've always had a great interest in companies that can churn out beautiful products (Rifle Paper Co. is a huge inspiration that comes to mind) and I figured - hey, I have the skills to do this, so why not? I hope to be finished designing at least the first set of paper goods by the end of October. 

I've always really liked the idea of working for myself too. It's a lot more work, but it's also really gratifying and great to build something from scratch. 

I guess that's all for now! If any BlogPodium folks are reading this - I'm excited to meet you at the conference! See y'all there.
