I’ll See You In St. Paul!

Hello everyone! I’ve been packing and preparing and now the time has come… I’m heading back to the US for a week only this time I’ll be in St. Paul, Minnesota for The Creative Connection where I’ll give a keynote and do a signing and I’ll also be working with Anthropologie for another fun event and signing out there, too! If you want to join me at either event, please click here for more information on TCC or click here to learn more about the Decorate Anthropologie event in St. Louis Park, MN just outside of St. Paul. I’ll be in St. Paul this evening – I can’t believe I’m going back to America so soon after my US book tour (I thought) wrapped up! Not quite yet. :)


I’ll be blogging from the road so stay tuned… I have a 10 hour flight ahead of me so most likely I won’t be back online again until Wednesday. Can’t wait to tell you all about this week – I’m excited to see my friends again and make many new ones.

    Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow :-) at Anthropologie.
    While in St. Paul if you have some time to kill, Goldstein Museum of Design has an exhibition going on ‘Beyond peacocks and Paisleys’ with textiles from India and its neighboring countries, it would be a worthwhile visit :-)

    Hello! I got excited when you said you were coming to Minnesota, and then my heart nearly stopped when I read “St Louis Park” because that’s where I live and it’s my favorite place on earth! Have fun!!!! Let me know if you need any recommendations on anything!

    You lead such a wonderfully exciting life – I love following along via the blog. And I’m so SO bummed you aren’t coming to an Anthro near me (Charlotte, NC). That would probably have made my year. :)

    Hey Holly! You did an amazing job at the Welcome Dinner. I know you said you were nervous, but you couldn’t tell at all. You’re a natural! I could have listened to you for hours! :)

    I just read your beautiful article in Where Women Create…..what an inspirational read you are! You talk of your struggles and fears, it makes me want to keep working at what I do. Nothing comes easy, and its not sheer luck that you are doing what you are today….

    I wish I could actually hear you deliver your keynote address….go get ’em tiger!

    Ciao Bella!

    Holly, You are gorgeous! Thanks so much for chatting after your keynote, and for sharing your wonderful journey with all of us. I’m still contemplative from what you had to say…especially your definition of “love” vs. “passion”
    Thanks Holly!

    Hi Holly,
    I have been reading your blog for years and have never been brave enough to comment but when I heard that you were coming to my local Anthropologie (King’s Road, London) I just had to get in touch to tell you how much I am looking forward to meeting you! I already have your decorate book which has been much thumbed whilst working on our home but I will be buying another to give to my best friend who is currently house hunting for her first home.

    I have booked a place at your talk on Sunday and really can’t wait! You must be exhausted with all of your travels, but I guess exhilarated to know how many peoples lives you touch with your wonderful blog and now book. Thank you for being so inspirational and I apologise for taking so long to comment…it really wasn’t nearly as scary as I imagined!

    Oh no, I knew I’d get it wrong…I typed in my blog address incorrectly! I’ve changed it now. Must do better next time Kate
