Have you registered for Becoming Conference yet?  Well, if not then time is running out!!  This is my favorite weekend of the year with some of my favorite bloggers all teaching sessions on crafting, DIY, cooking and more!

This is a conference that I co-host every year with Jen from Balancing Beauty & Bedlam.  We invite some of the top DIY Decor, Food, and Lifestlye bloggers to come and give you hands on tips and encouragement.  You can learn everything from refinishing furniture to cake decorating, photography, budgeting, couponing, to being more purposeful in your parenting or marriage.

You get to pick what sessions you want to attend, so you can hear a little bit of everything or just be one amazing painter!

Becoming is August 8th & 9th this year.

One of the best things is that you can spend a weekend away at a conference including food for only $100 if you share a room!


We don’t have the agenda set yet, but you’ll have the chance to hear from some awesome speakers!
