Florida Blogger Meetup

So, last weekend was the Florida Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers blogger meetup.  We met for the first time as a group last February in Orlando at Downtown Disney.  We had a great time at our  February meetup .
So since that time, I have gotten to know many of the ladies better and have totally enjoyed building friendships and business relationships.  I COMPLETELY believe my business has grown because of the tips and hints I have learned from some of these ladies. 

So, I was excited for the opportunity to meetup with these fabulous ladies again.  Over the summer I spoke to Melissa from Truly Chic Inspirations about the meetup and agreed to help organize the meetup along with Lauren McKinsey and Lavonne  from LF Events.  We had a good time working and planning together. We met at a cute little restaurant in Mt. Dora called Garden Gate Tea Room.

Here are some photographs from our day!

A special thank you to Renee from Bees Knees Creative for the fantastic cupcake icing demonstration and VERY detailed pdf file too!  I can't wait to try some of those techniques!


We had FANTASTIC swag bags (more on this very soon!), thank you to all who gave items or gift certificates. 

I have to say... that room was FILLED with more talent and PURE energy than should be allowed by law!  Go take a peek at their blogs, sites and shops and make sure to find this talented group on facebook.

AND, it was so nice to meet/see you ladies!
