Home Goods and BlogHer Event

Since this is a blog that celebrates creativity and writing, blogging about the Home Goods/BlogHer event that I attended in Tucker, Georgia on Saturday, May 21 was a no-brainer.

Writer and blogger, Linda Sands

Linds Sands, writer and blogger at Another Good Thing, invited me and five other friends along for a morning of shopping, creativity and fun! 

All of the bloggers and their friends received $50 gift cards and free reign of the store.

The excitement and creativity was palpable as the shoppers discussed decor, asked for feedback and helped each other find just the right accessories for their homes.

Lulls in shopping were filled with women introducing themselves, sharing the names of their blogs and the exciting paths their creativity had taken them.

Author and blogger Sandy Coughlin

I had the pleasure of speaking with Sandy Coughlin, author of “The Reluctant Entertainer” and blog of the same name. A few years ago, Sandy noticed that many people were reluctant to entertain in their own home. She created a blog that offers hosts and hostesses practical tips that are inexpensive and can help alleviate the fear some feel when being hospitable. Her blog caught the attention of agents and publishers, leading to a book deal. Check out Sandy’s work at reluctantentertainer.com.

Thank you Linda, BlogHer and Home Goods for a wonderful morning!
