prepping for “bliss”

next week i leave for blissdom!  it will be my 3rd year going and i am so excited!  its always a fun (and exhausting) time, but this time will be especially so with my awesome roomies:  lisa, maggie, and jess – so fun!

to make things even more fun, all four of us are part of blissdom‘s first ever handmade marketplace!  if you’re going to blissdom, come and see us!  i am hoping i can fill up my table with whatever i can fit into my suitcase!

are you going to blissdom?!

if you can’t make it to the handmade marketplace, you can place your orders early!  just order by this wednesday, february 15th in order to get it by next wednesday.

so, here’s what you need (yes NEED):

a tiny pouch, for your business cards and the ones you’ll collect from all your new friends.

a zippered pouch, to toss in your purse, holding your hand mirror, makeup, burt’s bees and other daily needs.

an ipad case, for slightly-more-discreet-than-a-laptop tweeting and emailing during sessions.

a bloom belt, to add to your lbd (little black dress) for the cocktail parties.

a ruffled scarf, for the drafty conference rooms.

a covered notebook, for taking meticulous notes during your sessions.

a petal pusher or ruffled mum pin, to fancy up a basic outfit.

a wristlet clutch, for those cocktail parties, so you don’t have to lug around a giant purse in your lbd (and bloom belt!).

and a travel tissue case, for drying your teary eyes at the always moving keynote speakers.

    Is anyone else having problems with the shop site opening up ?

    Is the marketplace open to the public, or only Blissdom participants? I live about 15 minutes from Opryland, and would love to be to shop from some of my favorite bloggers’ shops.
