{FREE} Convention Planner + Registration Giveaway!

You might have read a few days ago that I get to go to my first ever homeschool convention this year.  I’m nervous.  I’m excited.  I’m over the moon with delight!

This is a BIG step outside of my comfort zone, I have to tell ya.  I’m a home-body.  An introvert.  I’m much happier meeting people online than in person. But I KNOW this is going to be an awesome few days for my family and I and I kind of can’t wait. ♥

To help myself be prepared to seriously enjoy the 2015 HEAV Convention, I created this lovely planner that I want to share with you.  It’s set up so that you can use it for any convention and any year.  Take a look at the pages:


Convention_Planner_2015_Birds-05 Convention_Planner_2015_Birds-04

Convention_Planner_2015_Birds-07 Convention_Planner_2015_Birds-06

And then there are plenty of pretty note pages… Like these:

Want your own Convention Planner?  Of COURSE you do!  🙂

First some printing tips:

Open the PDF and then choose to print as a BOOKLET.  Tell the printer to print out pages 3 through 14 in booklet format and you’ll have a lovely book, half sheet sized, that should fit nicely into a purse or bag without taking up tons of room.  You’ll want all that extra space for all the goodies you’re going to bring home! ♥

Another Gift For You!

I am a long-time HEAV convention go-er. You already got the best advice – comfy shoes. Very important.
The next most important thing to bring, in my opinion, is a wheeled crate. If you have younger kids with you and will be bringing a stroller, this probably isn’t necessary. A cart is best for purchases. You can usually buy one there from Rainbow Resources.
I always bring some kind of little notebook but your planner will take the place of that.
If you tend to get cold, a sweater is a must for the seminars. Those rooms get chilly! Not so much for the UCS (it’s warm in there!) or the exhibit hall.
My last piece of advice – try to bring an attitude of enjoying the convention…not trying to do it all. There’s so much to do and see, no one can do it all. I always have to fight the feeling of missing out on something but if you race around trying to get to it all, it’s not a good experience. Pick and choose what appeals to you and leave the rest for another day or another convention!

    Sandra Modersohn says 5 years ago

    Moderation is the key in all things, isn’t it? Thank you for the great advice. I will do my best to remember not to get too carried away! ♥

The thing I can’t do without is the shopping cart on wheels to hold all your treasures, but make sure you tag it with something bright and colorful so you can identify it. Like luggage. Sometimes you can’t bring your cart into certain areas and you have to leave it outside the room with all the other black carts. It makes it a lot easier to find. Enjoy your first conference!

    Sandra Modersohn says 5 years ago

    Oh, great tip about tagging the cart! 🙂 I love that. Thank you so much! ♥

Great tips and planner! I cannot wait for convention!

For the HEAV convention, a good thing to bring is GOOD WALKING SHOES! This is NOT the time to try and look cute for the whole time. Oh, dress up to go out to dinner one night if you want, but sensible shoes are a must for the Curriculum hall! I’ve been there quite a few times, and each time I go I feel as if my head will explode with all the information I’m getting. Each night in the hotel room, I’m completely spent. I LOVE this convention, and since we can’t afford to go this year because of financial hardships, it would be just wicked awesome if I won!

    Sandra Modersohn says 5 years ago

    That WOULD be wicked awesome! lol Good luck! ♥ And thanks for the tips!

      Another quick tip; budget budget budget!! Not just your money (which, definitely is a must) but your time. I print out the schedule ahead of time (two copies) and both my husband and I go through them, highlighting the seminars we are interested in. Sometimes they are the same, sometimes they are different (oh, who am I kidding. MOST of the time they’re different!) If there are more than one seminar in the same time slot that I want to go to, I pick the one I’m the most interested in and go to that one. They record each one, so you can go to the recording booth after convention and buy the recordings of the ones you missed. You can buy them one at a time, or the whole convention. I have them on my iPod and listen to them throughout the year when I need a little refresher/reminder.
