Sunday was the kick-off for a star-studded event that brought designers, bloggers, suppliers and media people from around the country together for a 4 day free for all in the idea sharing department at Design Blogger’s Conference 2014. And who doesn’t love a good SWAG bag??? They loaded us down.
That’s right y’all. You saw it here first… Domino is back!!!
As soon as I entered the beautiful ballroom at The Grand Hyatt, the excitement was at frenzy level and it never let up.
I met Jeffrey Johnson and Leslie Carothers right off the bat. Matching names to well known faces is always a feat at these affairs. I promise not to bore you with every little detail (unless you are a follower on Instagram, then it’s Katy bar the door). I honestly had no idea what to expect but I am SO glad that I went. Funny how quickly you bond with people when you have so much in common. I came home with an entire bouquet of new friends (warning: we were grabbing whoever was standing near to snap a pic so these are very grainy but still, I will treasure them)
… many of the names and faces you will know. So without further adieu…. a little name droppin’. LOL
Yes, Ladies and Gents, that is the one and only Candice Olson! And she is hilarious.
And that is Tobi Fairley. It was predicted last year that she will join the ranks of Oprah and Elvis etc. and will only be known as Tobi.
This is Karen, the host of The Design Tourist on The Design Network. She was a sweet pea. There is a trend developing here . I am short!!!
On the left is Jeffrey Alan Marks star of Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Decorators.
On the right is Michael Bruno, Founder and Chairman of 1st Dibs.
So honored to now consider this gracious lady a friend. Ann Maine, Editor In Chief of Traditional Home Magazine.
And my favorite of all, my sweet friend Michelle that I went to Tybee Island with.
This cutie pie won the title of New Blogger Of The Year.
I felt like a proud Mama.
Back to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow.
