  5. Chandra says

    I’m coming to Haven, but I’d love to bring my daughter (who will be celebrating her 21st birthday!) with me. She’s my partner in crime.

  6. Christy@Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer says

  12. Michele says

    I would love to go to Haven again this year. Being a teacher, I didn’t think the dates were going to work. Just found out those dates are open!

  13. Colleen says

    I’m always afraid of doing something wrong. We’ve lived in our house for 13 years and I still don’t have anything on the walls. A ticket to haven would be awesome to get me inspired and hopefully past my decorating paralysis.

  14. says

    Oh Beth…this would be a dream come true for me! I’ve been blogging for a year and would love to make personal connections as well as learn to make what I do even better. My fingers are crossed. What a blessing it would be. Thanks for giving away a ticket!!

  15. Gina says

    I would love to meet everybody at Haven! Been following so many of you for years. Thanks for the chance to win a ticket.

  16. says

    I debated going to Haven this year and I just couldn’t justify the money. I would love to win! That would be an amazing gift for an up and coming DIY blogger!

  17. Debbie Byrd says

    Why I would love to win this ticket and chance of a lifetime….how can I find the words?! All my life, I’ve been redoing/re-purposing things – painting my sister’s old maple bedroom suite white, when I was 14. Watching…with intense interest, my aunt cut out a mural to go around a winding staircase when I was 10 years old. I will be 56 years old next week. But on the inside, I am still that girl who is as excited as she ever was, about all DIY projects! When I ‘found’ the blogger world of decorating, DIY, you would have thought I’d won Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes….seriously!! As corny as it sounds, I remember looking at all the wonderful ideas and talent, and smiling through tears saying….THESE are my people!!!!!!! And you are. Give me a fabric store any day over a shoe store. Or a paint store over a clothing boutique. And look right over there….see….on the side of the road, see that shelf that someone just threw away??!!!! Give me this kind of joy any day….who wants to go to Paris, for crying out loud?!!! :)

  18. says

    I am actually kind of new to the blog world, but Haven sounds AMAZING… I’ve been dying to go but couldn’t really justify the expense. So I would love to win a ticket!

  19. says

    Thanks so much for hosting and the chance to win a ticket! I would LOVE to go!! I didn’t get a chance to meet you at SNAP so maybe I would have a better chance at Haven! ;)

  20. says

    Thanks for hosting! I’m coming to Haven but I’d love to win a ticket so that my husband could attend the sessions, too. He’s my DIY partner in crime!

  21. says

    I had the opportunity to meet some great gals and fellow bloggers this past weekend at Lucketts May Fair. They told me about Haven… I would LOVE to go! What a great opportunity for us new bloggers!!

  22. Kara says

    I would love to win a haven ticket to come and see all of the many talented bloggers! While I’m not a blogger yet, I have tossed the idea around with my sister! It would be great to get ideas and tips at haven! Thanks for a chance!

  23. says

    I would love to attend Haven so I can meet all the inspiring bloggers attending and learn ways to improve my blog.

  24. says

    I am aching with every fiber of my beaing to go to Haven…..too much? Haha, I really want Haven to be my first conference. The home improvement/DIY bloggers are the friendliest around and I want to learn as much as I can from everyone. I really need to step up my photography skills and learn more about making your DIY posts shine. I am crossing everything that can be crossed and hoping I win a ticket!!!!

    Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  25. Diana Walters says

    Hoping to win the Haven tickets! Would be a great girls weekend! My fingers are crossed, and thanks for the offer!

  26. says

    I have not had time in the past two years to do anything super fun for myself. This would be a great opportunity!

  27. says

    Thanks for another great party, Beth! I had been thinking about going to Haven and didn’t realize it is sold out! boo hoo. I sure would love to win a ticket though, thanks for the chance:)

  28. Christy says

    I’d love to win! I just signed up to start and blog yesterday, so this would be AWESOME!!

  29. says

    I would love to meet new people and get ideas and resources to help the moms I work with! We all need a bit of new inspiration!

  30. says

    Beth, Thanks so much for hosting the party. I’m so hoping I win the ticket. I would love, love, love to meet so many bloggers and learn so much!

  31. says

    Would love to attend HAVEN this year! I missed out on purchasing a ticket because the school I run begins the following Monday. I’ve regretted it ever since they sold out! Skipping the first day of school (even as administrator) would be SO worth it!! Thanks!

  32. Jamie says

    I’ve wanted to go for two years now and just can’t seem to get it together before the tickets sell out!! It would be so much fun to get to meet other bloggers face to face!!

  33. Demi says

    I am a Design Enthusiast and I love it!. I would love to learn more and more and more!

  34. maggi barth says

    I would like to win the Haven ticket to go to the conference I tried so hard to go to last year!!!

  36. says

    Thank you so much for a wonderful giveaway Beth!! I would love to attend & meet blogging friends face to face. What a wonderful opportunity to learn & make our blogs even better!!

    xo, Tanya

    As a blogger that missed Haven last year and Snap! this year, I will be devastated if I miss Haven again this year! I’d love to win! Thanks for hosting the giveaway.
