skirt Magazine Creative Conference 2011


I just got back from a wonderfully fun and busy weekend in Atlanta where I attended the Creative Conference, held by skirt! Magazine. I’ve been blogging over at skirt! for about a year and was really excited when I first heard about this event. As most conferences go, it was packed to the brim with information and just about every minute was planned with some sort of activity.

What set the Creative Conference apart was how many genuine connections were made. It might sound cliché to say “friends for life,” but I truly believe I will keep in touch with some of these ladies for a very long time. Even if you haven’t attended a conference like this, it’s so important to find a support system that serves as your cheering squad. And if you’d like to attend next year, you’ll definitely see me there!

I’ll be sharing more this week about some of the things I took away from the conference, including my up-close-and-personal with fabulous author Emily Giffin and how I won some cool loot, thanks to my 2nd grade teacher! Happy Monday y’all!
