I'm 3 weeks into summer holidays & here's what I've been up to:

1. I celebrated my 13th wedding anniversary today.  Hubby & I went to the new Cameron Diaz movie Sex Tape!

2. We have been working our tails off the last 5 days getting our house ready to put on the market.  Today we met with the realtor & the FOR SALE sign is on the front lawn!

3. I am trying to complete my biggest TpT product ever!!  I planned it all out on the drive home from Vegas & each night I try get some work done on it.  It's a slow process

TpT Vegas!

I am finally home after being on the road for 18 days with the family.  We drove down the Oregon & California coast, then back home through Vegas.  I planned the trip so we'd be in Vegas for the first ever TpT Conference on July 11th.  I was totally blown away by the whole experience - the energy, the creativity, the expertise, and the TpT celebrities.

Here are my 5 take-aways from TpT Vegas:

1) NETWORK - I need to get my store name out there.  I noticed a lot people had super cute business cards that they were handing out.  What an awesome idea! 

2) Larger Products - The majority of my products can be completed in one class, but one speaker suggested creating larger products.  I started working on a 2 week product last night.  I'm excited for this new challenge.

3) Believe - Everyone has a TpT story.  I want mine to be awesome.  I can do this!

4) You can write several blog posts at once & then set a schedule for when you want them to go live on your blog.  I did not know this!  How cool is that?

5) Set Goals!  I am a list maker & goal setter.  I love crossing things off a list.  For some reason I never posted clear TpT goals in a place I could see every day.  This I am going to do.

It sounds like there will be another TpT conference next summer in Vegas.  I've got a lot of work to do before then.
