come learn more!


Truly, the most pivotal time in my “blogging life” was last fall.  Husband and I recognized a season of life that was slower than usual and I was unusually motivated and creative.  It was the perfect time for us to give the blog a fair shake at being successful.  So, last summer, we began planning for a redesign nd relaunch on my own domain.  The new look (my current look) launched on October 1st–the first day of The No Brainer Wardrobe series.  I blogged for 31 days straight in Nester’s 31 days of… initiative.  It was super well received and Nester twisted my arm into expanding on my ideas in an eBook.

Then, I went to Relevant (now Allume).  It was an excellent conference where I got to touch base with some of my favorite blog friends–and make a few new ones.  These blog friends are now dear to me in a real-life, text each other, travel to see each other, and hug kind of way.  Far surpassing what I learned in nuts-and-bolts at the conference, are the connections I made.  One afternoon between sessions, I asked a few of the women to brainstorm Tiny Twig goals with me.  They heard my dreams and urged me to push harder and think bigger.

That was the genesis of the crazy amazing year I’ve had with Tiny Twig.  That was the genesis of me thinking big things are possible with my small voice.

I want you to be able to have the same experience I did.  I want you to know that your voice is valuable and that there are kindred spirits out there who believe in you. That is why I’m giving away a ticket to The Influence Conference, held in Indianapolis this October.  I’d LOVE to see you there.

  • So I would absolutely love to go, but what are the chances that mamas bring their babies to these things? She’ll be 7 months old at the time… Did you see babies at Allure, or would that be completely out of place?

    I would love to make it to this conference. I’m a new blogger and have so much to learn. This is a great giveaway!

  • Thanks for the opportunity…I have been praying that I could go since y’all first announced it!

  • Would love to come to this event. We have taken a few financial hits though these last few months so winning a ticket would be great, but I can’t get the “rafflecopter to work” it says I have to tweet to enter. But, I don’t have a twitter account.

    My husband and I just started Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and NOTHING extra is in the budget thanks to Dave! UGH. I totally thought I’d be going and had to face the reality that it wasn’t going to happen. Thanks so much for the renewed HOPE! Lol :)

    So glad to have found your adorable blog,

    Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally
    different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design.
    Superb choice of colors!
