Country Living Event

Wow! I am home from an amazing weekend in Chicago. I met many of my pink friends from Make Mine Pink, was there to see Joyce Lucas (owner of MakeMinePink.com) receive her honor as one of Country Living's Entrepreneurs of the year, and listened to an amazing panel of women speak about owning your own business. There were 600 women in attendance. The room was full of so much information and inspiration, my head is still spinning. This is an annual event for Country Living and all I can say is if you have never been, it is definitely well worth the trip! There were a few moments that I had tears in my eyes listening to some of the beautiful and emotional stories of the ladies being honored. And I was so happy to be there and be a part of this wonderful experience. Can't wait for next year's event!

Hello Dawn,

What a nice blog! Including your family in your creative pursuits is so important. Your children must feel good to be helping Mom with the tea parties and making crafts!
Please check out www.youngqueenvictoria.com.
I have teapots for sale which I have designed that are perfect for a tea party. New painted images and the price will be available very shortly.

Best regards, Maureen Berry
