thank you alt

I attended Altitude Summit in June. I. LOVED. IT.

As expected the business cards were beautiful and so creative. There were pretty parties and great attention to detail. The ‘high school girl syndrome’ of feeling like you have no friends and are totally awkward was re-lived all over again…only this time, there were no mean girls…just nice ones. Fashion was fabulous. Talent was out of this world. And, I learned A TON.

I am so grateful for my experience at Alt and really hope I make it back every year, and take both sisters with me.

Among the many, many things I learned, here’s 10 things I took from the Alt Summit {then be sure to watch the video at the end}…
1. Martha Stewart is not a b****, but rather like a beech tree
2. We need to hashtag everything.
3. I want the energy and positivity that radiates from Rachel of Handmade Charlotte {she is really talented too, so check out her site here}. And, fashion advice from pinfluencer Alexandra Evjen would be greatly beneficial too.
4. A lightbox will rock our instagram world {thanks @zelmarose and @sarahderagon} and help with my composition, consistency and color.
5. We need to find more creative ways to date our hubbies {thanks Camille at Fridays We’re In Love}.
6. Joy Cho of Oh Joy is just adorable and a fantastic business woman, and we can “create something from nothing.”
7. We want to work with Bing, The Honest Company , Silhouette and Wayfair on a regular basis.
8. Dream Big. Be Brave.
9. It’s time to collaborate y’all. We’re brainstorming ideas now Freshly Picked, Freckles in April, Shoes Off Please, Spitfire Girl, McCall of the Wild, Agnes & Dora, One Charming Party, LuLu the Baker, Yellow Bungalow Shop, Hillary Butler, Annie Reeves, One Little Minute Blog, The Alison Show, White Plum, Design Improvised, Pepper Design Blog, fellow Colorado gal Courtney Khail, Thrifty Littles, Happy Confetti, Planning Pretty, Petit Lemon, Leland Gal, and The Banner Shoppe…and all those who we didn’t get a chance to meet, but really wanted to {please, please introduce yourself}.
10. My dream job doesn’t exist, I must create it. Thanks Melissa at Best Friends for Frosting {so glad I met you during checkout with my kiddos running around}.

As we gathered together to talk about our special experience at Alt, we had our friend and wonderful photographer Meredith of Meredith Moran Photography bring her camera and handmade marquee letters {so so cute…you can buy them here} to capture it all on film…and say ‘thank you’ to everyone on the amazing Alt team.

Please take 1.5 minutes to watch our video. Enjoy!
