Ohio Valley Blogger Meet & Greet 2013
I recently attended a local (Ohio Valley/Pittsburgh) blogger Meet & Greet at IKEA. (#ovbloggers on Instagram/Twitter)
I attached my business cards to the DIY mini chalkboard clips for cute little presents for my new friends.
I came home with so many much swag from vendors and bloggers! Christmas in July. For real. Take a look…it’s like a dream I spy game of goodies!

One thing I love about blogging is meeting (even “e-meeting”) others who share a passion for DIY and blogging. That includes you! So glad you’re here and that we’ve ‘met’! And now I’m counting down the days to the Haven Conference and the opportunity to see and meet MORE awesome blog friends face-to-face…yay! I’ll also be working on a local HomeTalk meet up towards the end of the summer so if you’re local – I’d love to see you there. More details coming soon!
Oh shoot. I would have loved to have gone to this. I am an ohio valley blogger near pittsburgh. I didn’t even know about it. Oh well, maybe next time. It looked like a lot of fun.
Darn, Lauren! I actually found out very last minute myself. I’ll keep you posted when I hear of another. I’m not OV, but will be planning a somewhere Pgh-ish event soon! 🙂
It looks like a ton of fun. I am not a blogger and living in FLA, it would not be frugal for me, but I know it was a great event for you gals.
Looks like so much fun Roeshel, and I can’t wait to see you at Haven!
Thanks so much lady for this great post!! Had a few wonderful ladies stop over to my blog and give me some beautiful comments!! Really appreciate it!! Thank you! It was great meeting you and can’t wait to hopefully connect again one day!!!
I look forward to getting together again, Nicole. I’d love to get to know everyone a little better. 🙂 Have a great week!
I had no idea you were from the Pittsburgh area!!! I grew up in Pittsburgh and now live in Northern VA! I knew I liked you :p
Well next time you’re in the area (family reunion?!), we have to make plans to meet! 🙂 xoxo
I was so happy to see your recap – it looks like a great time. I had hoped to attend but prior commitments kept me in Cleveland. Maybe next time . . . Thanks!
I look forward to meeting you, Sharon! So cool that you’re so close! I had no idea! 🙂
Roe- This was a great post! And i love the pics of us…too funny and silly. Can’t wait to hopefully connect again at the Hometalk meet up.
I didn’t take pics either:( Next time! It was great connecting with so many local bloggers, and the swag bag was indeed fabulous:)
