Hiving Fun in Berlin

27 May

Last week-end I had the pleasure of attending the first ever The Hive European Blogging Conference in Berlin, Germany.  I had a wonderful week-end full of meeting new friends, learning the ins and outs of the blogging world and listening to some very inspiring women talk about their blogging experiences.  Unfortunately I didn’t take too many photos during the week-end because I was so concentrated on getting around to all the presentations and workshops and chatting with new friends but here are a few.

Presentation by Sister Mag.  These two women are so well spoken and inspiring.

 I was also lucky enough to participe in a really fun  food photography workshop by Anne from Anne’s Kitchen (who is the human equivalent to a cupcake…extremely sweet!).

We had a great selection of props, materials and food to work with. 

One of my favorite items from The Hive goody bag was this wooden USB stick from in Italy name cards.

Thanks to all The Hive organisers for such a great week-end.  I’ll hopefully see you in Berlin again in 2013!

    FANTASTC name cards – did they make them for you or did you? If you did, would you make some for me.

      I designed them and had them made. I’m really happy with the way they turned out.

    I love the USB stick too! I haven’t owned one for years, so getting one free was perfect!
    Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who didn’t take a ton of photos. It was lovely to meet you that weekend, Jillian!

    Any help would be really appreciated!
