the awesome recap

i'm a little late, but i'd like to blog a bit about my experience at the summit of awesome a couple of weeks ago. {and, yes,... it was pretty awesome.} the gals at hello craft put on one heck of a conference. it was well organized and jam-packed with amazing crafty-celebrities, some of whom i got to meet! including ::

kari chapin, author of "handmade marketplace" (an awesome read for crafters that want to go into business!)

pat & aaron of if you haven't stopped by, check it out!

susan beal, author of "button it up" and other crafty books

jena of popular blog modish

cathy + torie of crafty wonderland

even danielle xo from etsy!!!

i learned a lot of great business tips, now i just have to put them into action! i highly recommend attending this conference next year if the handmade lifestyle is something you'd like to pursue for a living. it was very inspiring and i felt a sort of... well,... a crafty-connection with everyone in attendance. These are definitely my peeps.

and then, of course...

to wrap up the week, the show of awesome was held at the ol' crafty wonderland haunt, the doug fir lounge. as a vendor (that's me at the top left in the blue shirt, doing something crafty no doubt), it was amazing to be among some serious crafty superstars including :

+ many others

it was a super fun way to end four days of crafty heaven.
and afterwards, i took a long nap. :)
