Alt Summit: The Return Home
I’m back from my trip to Salt Lake City for Alt Summit. It was a great trip and there’s so much goodness I want to share—everything from sitting down with Jessica Alba (that’s me on the right!!) to hearing the words I needed to hear to killing on the dance floor with Sherri Silver. And the laughing. So much laughing. I’m still buzzing a bit with energy.
While I was there, my partner in crime Sandra Harris of Raincoast Cottage and I led a roundtable where we discussed creative jealousy, how to make art and have a life, dealing with our inner critic, and finding your tribe. It’s all of those challenges that creatives face. It’s also all of those things we wrestled with last year as we both found our voices. Our group was incredible. They shared so much of themselves and I hope they felt inspired to go home and make without fear!
At the end of the session, the group left with a poster featuring Sandra and my favorite inspirational quotes. Would you like a copy? Just click here to download a pdf. We had our friend Melanie Biehle of Inward Facing Girl design it. Love her!
And now for a personal note: Last year I decided to take myself seriously. And that thought and commitment changed everything. I wasn’t going to hide who I was or what I loved. And I couldn’t have done it without the support and encouragement from my family and friends. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
