Monthly Wrap-Up: August

floral paperThat's it! Summer. Gone. It's bittersweet, because while it's sad to see the lazy days fade away, fall can be such an inspiring season. Even if the weather continues to be summer-like, post Labour Day it's back to business for most of us, whether it be school or new work projects. It's the time of year when you feel pumped to start something new or learn a new skill. Speaking of education, I'd like to remind all you design and lifestyle bloggers out there about BlogPodium on Sept. 21 here in Toronto. It's a fantastic conference, and this year it's an all-day affair. Yours truly will be speaking at one of the sessions, and there are plenty of other fabulous presenters lined up, including Sarah Richardson. As a treat for all my readers, I'm able to extend a 10% discount off registration. Purchase tickets here and enter the code blogpodium10. Hope to see you there!
