    Thank you for this post! I have made a list, but since this is my first Haven conference, there are things I didn’t think of. I am really looking forward to the conference, and now I will be more prepared. I will see you there!

    1. Hi Susan! You’ll learn so much and meet so many people. It’s well worth it. I’m actually having to sadly skip it this summer, but hopefully I’ll be back next year.

  2. Your conference looked like such a fun learning experience. I’m new to your blog and absolutely love it. I have a question concerning your paint color in your living spaces. I want to use that color in my living spaces and, possibly, in the upstairs. Again, love your blog. It’s so inspirational and I’ve already tried your No-Bake Eclair dessert. My husband loves it.

    Thanks a bunch,

    1. I am SO tickled you found me and that you love the blog Nancy! I get the question about my wall color a lot and I wish I knew what it orginally was. I took a piece of the wall that was cut out (don’t ask) to the paint store and had it matched. I think it is close to SW Accessible Beige but it’s not identical. If you want to test my exact wall color, I can take a photo of the label that you can take to Sherwin Williams and they could make up a test quart for you. Just shoot me an email if you want it and I’d be happy to send it.

      1. Thank you so much., that is such a great idea. I can’t wait to give it a try.
        Thanks again,

  3. This was such a great post. It was so much fun meeting you at Haven. Let’s stay in touch. Hugs to you, my friend.

  4. This was sooooo interesting!!!!!!!! I’m going to read it again, and maybe again. Thank you for all of your very pertinent information.

  5. What great tips! You thought of so many things that I never considered. Attending Haven with you this year was the best! Can’t wait til the next one!
