Some of my favorite shopping sites went up today on Lucky Magazine’s website in my blogger blackbook. (Thanks for having me, Lucky!)
I’m back from summer camp! Oh, I mean Altitude Design Summit.
I could name all of the amazing people I got to meet and hang out with, but it would seem a little braggy because the summit was just that good. I mean, you saw the list of speakers, right? Add to that the awesome attendees and you have a list of my nearly all of my favorite design bloggers. The organizers behind Alt did an outstanding job, and I’m honored to have been included!

The panels were fantastic. In addition to the Keynote events, we were able to choose between three tracks for each session: Design Theory, Form & Function, or Hands On. I loved listening to what some of my favorite bloggers and influential people had to say on each topic, but it was even more exciting to be able to chat with them personally. Best of all, I left feeling inspired and ready to make this little ol’ blog of mine the best it can be.
Now you’re wishing that you went, right? Don’t worry. It’s all going to happen again next year, and I can’t wait.
