…Home & Remodeling Show & Ticket Giveaway

So….The Home & Remodeling Show is this weekend! I’ve been asked to be one of the guest presenters and my time slot if Sunday, 20th from 1-2.

Yes, that is a total of an hour long presentation! akkk! I’ve put together a Power Point, which I haven’t done in a good 10 years since my marketing days.

As I was pulling together images & ideas, DH told me that it would be helpful to discuss something that would help those listening. I decided to touch on the most commonly asked question as one of my topics: How to Start a Creative Business.

I will also be doing an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint demo and offer my techniques.

Here’s the rest of the presentation topics.

1. Intro

2. How to Start a Creative Business

3. Chalk Paint Steps

4. Demo

5. Interior Design/Vintage Decor

    Hi Christen!! I stumbled on your site via Ask.com….inquiring about chalk paint. Can I say how adorable you are! And how inspiring your tutorials are! I am officially putting my hobbie into action as a new biz venture. I currently have an accessories company and bring one of a kind pieces of jewelry, purses, scarves etc to my clients. I was looking for pieces for my home fashion finds and when I saw your site I realized I have what it takes to make most of those pieces myself…thus guaranteeing total originality. So I am saying THANK YOU and I look forward to growing my love /hobbie into my biz! #inspirational
