  11. I moved to ATL last June and heard Haven 2012 was coming to town. WOW this would be such an amazing event to attend. I just ordered my business cards yesterday for my first Antique/Garden fair this month, so going to this event and learning from the pro’s on how to market myself would be such a blessing. I shared it on my FB page.
    Pray I win. :-)

  12. See I was so excited about this “Golden Ticket” that I didn’t do a separate comment about my FB share.
    I did share on FB, and if I had a twitter to chirp and tweet all about I would.

  13. This is the first news I have heard about this!! I just tweeted it and now am commenting on it! I LIVE in Atlanta, and would LOVE to go. Ticket please…. thanks!

  14. I would so love to win the Golden Ticket!! I live in Social Circle, an easy ride to the big city.

  16. Hi Tracey,

    First of all, HUGE CONGRATS to the Sell Out for all of you. What an accomplishment. I would love to win. I need a girl get away from all these boys.Remember, I have four just like you!
    Blessing for Easter,

  17. Oh wow, this would be amazing to attend! I bought a few mega-millions tickets last week, but I think I’d rather win this! :) (Fingers and toes crossed!!)

  18. This is a great opportunity – I’m hoping if I’m the winner that I can transfer my winnings – this is right up my friend Lisa’s alley!

  19. I would sell a kidney to cover travel expenses if I won this golden ticket!

    Just kidding…well, maybe. ;)

  20. Here’s my second entry — I shared the giveaway on Facebook. I would L-O-V-E to win!

  21. I NEED this ticket! My sister Kristin has one and I have kept saying, I need to get my ticket, I need to get my ticket and now they are sold out?! What a dumb thing to procrastinate, huh? I can’t wait to see you there, Traci!!

  22. Dang, I was going to talk to my boss on Thursday about getting the time off! But if I win the ticket, I’ll definitely TELL him next week I’m taking the time!

  23. I *think* I tweeted — that’s why I need the ticket, to learn how to do this stuff better!

  24. Would love to win the final pass into this terrific gathering! I am about to open my first booth in a local antiques shop and want to add a blog to the mix as well. Hope you pick me! :D

  25. WOW! this is every bloggers dream! Please enter me to win a ticket! This is so sureal to be right there with all my favorite blogger friends!! Thank you so much for this chance :)

  26. Ok girlfriend, you KNOW I want to go to this conference, so here goes EVERYTHING! :) Wish me luck! I want to meet all my online girlfriends! (of course I’ve already gotten to meet you, but we really do need to get together for lunch or something soon!…maybe when schools out)
    Missy :)

  27. Ahh! I didn’t know the event had a max. amount of participants! I didn’t even get a chance to order my ticket yet. :( Hopefully I win, so I can still go :) *fingers & toes crossed*

  28. I was thinking I didn’t “fit” in to this conference since I am not technically a DIY blogger…but since Blissdom (and being inspired by all you lovely girls) I have truly enjoyed dipping in to the DIY/Decorating blogging way more than normal! Kinda wishing I would have just said “YES” to Tonya when she begged me to buy a ticket months ago. Guess I will just have to see if I can win one! How awesome would that be!

  29. I live about an hour away from ATL, so this would be PERFECT for me. :) I’d love to meet all of my favorite DIY bloggers!!

  30. Pick me, pick me, pick me….PLEASE! I realized at BlissDom I’m more of a home blogger than I thought I was. There were hardly any home bloggers there. I so want to meet so many of my awesome home blogging friends I have made. PLEASE!!!! :D With Sugar on TOP!

  31. I would love to win this ticket! I’ve been watching for giveaways and here’s the last one! Praying I win, seriously. :)

  32. I also shared this giveaway on Facebook, so enter me again please!

    thanks for the chance to win…I REALLY want to go!

  33. This opportunity would be golden for me! I have entered
    every giveaway and haven’t won, but I’m not giving up, nope.
    I know if I won I would meet so many talented bloggers, a dream
    cone true for sure.
    Thank you for this awesome giveaway. Pick me I won’t disappoint you
    and this would help me so much!

  34. I can’t afford to go to a blogging conference this year. How sad. Winning a ticket would put a great big smile on my face. Pick me, random computer generated number picker!!!

  35. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! My husband has been out of work for three months with a broken back and I haven’t been able to finally purchase a ticket until now and I find out on the exact day I was going to purchase it I find that it is sold out! My family is all stoked for a trip to Atlanta and I have reserved our hotel spots already. Wow. Please pick me. Please pick me!!! Can you hear my desperation??!


  36. Sharaed your exclusive giveaway on Our Blue Front Door
    Facebook page. Yahoo hope I win!

  37. I live in Atlanta and I had planned on buying a ticket. So happy for you but sad for me that you sold out! I hope to win the last ticket so I can attend. Thanks for the opportunity!

  38. Would love to be the lucky recepient to a Haven ticket! Live about 90 miles NE of ATL and a trip to the city would be great!

  39. I would very much enjoy receiving this, but if I don’t, I hope whoever does truly enjoys themselves!

  40. But for the expenses–I would already have my ticket.
    So it would be SO APPRECIATED to WIN the last one!
    Crossing my fingers! Catherine

  41. If I win this ticket, I will give you a BIG KISS on the lips. Or not. Your choice.

  42. I shared on my FB page! I said I would faint if I could attend. Don’t you all want to watch me faint?!

  43. Oh no!! I was so looking forward to attending Haven! I would love a ticket if you have extra!! My (and my Sister’s) blog is all about Southern DIY and Haven would be great to learn the trciks of the trade :-)

  44. I would absolutely love to go! I follow so many of the bloggers mentioned- I would love for a chance to meet them!

  45. Would be so grateful for the chance to attend with all of these amazing women!! Thank you for doing a giveaway! :)

  46. I am already planning to go, but I have to admit, that between the price of the ticket & hotel, we are a little overextended. At least we had airline miles! Thanks much for this giveaway!

  47. I just joined Twitter yesterday and tweeted this morning. Oh, please pick me! I need to go to Atlanta for the very first time for an amazing Haven experience! Thanks.

  48. Oh I wanna win! And now I’m singing, thanks to that Willy Wonka picture up there, “I’ve got a Golden Ticket”! LOL. If only I DID have a golden ticket! Hoping to win!

  49. I would so love to go to the Haven conference. I’ve only been blogging seriously since last fall and have so much to learn. I’m not too far from Atlanta and would be thrilled to get to attend.

  50. I am near tears because I didn’t realize the conference had sold out. Just this evening my husband and I decided it would indeed be worthwhile to have me attend and I see now that I am too late. Here’s to my very last chance. Fingers CROSSED!

  51. Thanks so much for doing the giveaway! How exciting! It would be absolutely life-changing to be able to attend such an amazing event! I can’t even imagine how much valuable info I would absorb and how many amazing people I would meet! Fun, fun, fun!
