First of all, I have to apologize for the lack of a new post yesterday. In the year and a half since I started this blog I have not missed a post….so you know it wasn’t something I did on a whim. I just reached a point last night where something had to give…and it turned out to be my post.
As some of you may know…I am attending a blogger’s conference in Salt Lake City called Altitude Summit. Today was the first full day of festivities and WOW…what a day! Not only did I get to speak in a workshop on “DIY’s + Pinterest” with the incredibly talented Chris Gardner of ManmadeDIY.com, Jenny Batt of Hank and Hunt, Chelsea Costa of LovelyIndeed.com, and Melissa Esplin of MelissaEsplin.com…but after the workshop I ALSO got to chat with Jessica Alba. 🙂 She is in Utah attending the Sundance Film Festival in Park City (her film A.C.O.D. premiered Wednesday) and talking up her business venture “The Honest Company” with bloggers. I have to say…she couldn’t possibly have been nicer! Such a pleasant surprise. 🙂
Below is a picture of the DIY gift bag I presented to my fellow panelists AND Jessica Alba! It included a bag of my Highly Addicting Granola Clusters, a sampler of essential oils, some Homemade Altoids, and a bar of my Homemade Soap from Wednesday’s post! It also included a few other non-homemade goodies…but I was especially proud of the DIY stuff. 🙂
It was a small gesture…but one I hope will have some sort of lasting effect. 🙂 Two more days of conference ahead…and then things will settle down again….but I promise to have a “real” post tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks for your patience!!
