Felt Rosette Flower Pin and Blissom ’11

It’s hard to believe that the much anticipated blog conference, Blissdom ’11 is just over a week away!

Flat TidyMom

Nashville/Blissdom or Bus

Last year I wanted to attend SOO bad, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me.ย  So my amazing friend Cathe took Flat TidyMom to Nashville.

This year I’m excited to say, that I will be attending thanks to my love of fresh laundry and Bounce, my incredible sponsor!!ย ย  I’m a Bounce Bar girl!!

Have you seen the new Bounce commercial…….the Forgetter Woman? It’s hilarious!!

I thought, if I have time, I could make a few felt flower pins to wear at Blissdom, and maybe give to a few friends………..not sure I can make 500 in a week though! lol

These make great Valentine gifts too!

  1. One day I may get to go to Blissdom to learn and meet all the great women who blog. Until then I love reading about the excitement and fun. Those felt flower pins are adorable. Oh, and I am a sheet bouncer. Wait. That would make those who like the bar a bar bouncer. Ha.

  2. I’m a bar girl! Can’t wait to see you in Nashville!

  3. I’m going to Blissdom for the first time. I can’t wait. It’s getting so close & I’m getting even more excited.

    That pin & camera strap are GORGEOUS! That camera also looks just like mine. Someone has great taste. : )

    As of right now, I’m still using sheets. We have sensitive skin in this house so I haven’t made the switch yet. We can’t use anything scented or there are issues.

  4. I just love that grey and white with a pop of red combo… so fresh! Be careful with all that cutting… save some fingers for the keyboard:) Inquiring readers (like me) want to know all about your trip.

  5. And you can’t make 500…because? Ha! Kidding. I can’t wait for you to go and get back so we can read all about it and see all your great pictures!

    I do love that commercial – that’s so my life! Oh, and I’m still a liquid girl…does that make me old-fashioned?

  6. I’m going to Blissdom! It’s my first conference, and I’m so excited I can’t stand it! Hope I get to meet you!

    I prefer the bar, but with a new baby in the house, I had to switch back to sheets. The bar is so much easier, though.

  7. Yeah!
    TidyMom is a BOUNCE~GIRL!
    I love it!
    I can just see you now!
    You’ll be BOUNCING all over BLISSDOM!
    I am THRILLED for you and BRIDGET!
    How much FUN you will have!
    I wanna see pics….and lots of them!!!!!!!
    I am BEAMING for you both!
    And I love the felt pins!
    And…I have GOT to have a camera strap!
    Is there ANYTHING you can’t DO my dear!
    TidyMom ROCKS…and she’s headed for BLISSDOM!

  8. Looks like you are going to be busy.
    Lately, I seem to just be making a mess, that is all ๐Ÿ™‚
    Wish I was going to Blissdom would have been great to meet you.

  9. I always forget that Blissdom is in Nashville! As a native, I’m jealous you get to see the Opryland Hotel renovated from last year’s flood before I do. I hear its spectacular! Have a wonderful time!

  10. The Bounce commercial cracked me up!

    Love the felt flower.


  11. Your felt flowers are so cute and I’m wondering if that camera strap is going to be made with polka-dotted material for your sweet friend. The blue one you show in this post is very pretty.

    I’m not attending Blissdom and will live vicariously through all the posts about it in between throwing loads of clothes in my dryer and tossing in a Bounce sheet ๐Ÿ™‚

    Enjoy the conference and meeting old and new friends Cheryl.

  12. I just love the fabric rosette. I think my daughter and I would love to try making these as Valentines gifts.

  13. I’m trying to make some flowers too….and some little secret gifts too! Hope to meet you at Blissdom!

  14. I’m a sheet girl!!

    And I’m coming to Blissdom (obvi) and you are totally getting 17 hugs.



  15. ummm…gorgeous pin and camera strap! i use mrs. meyers sheets.

  16. Aww, how exciting! I wish I had known about it enough in advance to have been able to go. Oh well, there’s always next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Bar girl, all the way! Those suckers last forever (it seems)!

    Have a blast at Blissdom!

  18. I already have my flat “you” in my suitcase – it was the first thing I packed! I like the bars AND the sheets – can I be Switzerland in this case? Adorable pins and camera straps – you are SUCH a creative chicky!!!

  19. I love those pins!!! And I can’t wait for Blissdom!!!
