So, I had a completely different post planned for today with a really fun and easy project that I love and am excited to share, but it just didn’t feel right to post about it when my mind is so far from home right now. I’m currently on a plane (in air wi-fi is the best) headed to Salt Lake City for the Alt Design Summit which is the yearly blog conference of blog conferences for people like me.

 

stripes and sparkle

 

I’m packed up with stripes, sparkle, shoes, handbags (not the ones above, although that would be awesome), and a ton of business cards.  What does this have to do with you? Well, two things…

Firstly, I am nervous as all-get-out.  I don’t feel like I should be posting about homemade bath sachets when I’ve got a lump the size of Texas in my chest.  Why do you ask?  Well, last year when I went, I was so new to this blog and all of you were new to me.  I didn’t have much to lose, but a ton to gain.  This year I still have a ton to gain, but way more to lose.  I wouldn’t want to make a change to House of Earnest that would lose any of you, or wrongly represent what I’ve set out to share, but I also want to shake things up and offer some newness to this place.  OH yeah, and I’m speaking… double yikes.

Secondly, I’m so excited to share with you that I’m meeting with people from Better Homes and Gardens, Sherman Williams, Keep.com, and Bing to better this blog, explore next steps for how to get my creative ideas out there into the world and overall keep this blog thing energized, organized, and chalk full of newness for you, my dear readers.

So, That is what’s going on inside my head this morning.  I know it’s not necessarily home decor based, but if you guys are up for hearing more behind-the-scenes of life in the blogworld type posts, definitely let me know.

IF you’re still reading and you also really like parties, fashion, and clothes, then follow on Instagram – I’ll be sharing lots of photos of the parties I’m attending all week (tonight it’s dinner with Better Homes and Gardens!), the outfits I’ll be wearing, and the tips, treats, and drinks that will be flying around.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing one of my favorite things about being out west and I suppose the diy project will have to wait until next week!  Have a fab Wednesday out there guys!
