I’m happy to be sharing more today about the people I came across at Alt who truly inspired me. These particular folks struck me as focused and clear-headed about their work, but not so much that they couldn’t be down-to-earth as well. My exchanges with these creatives left me feeling uplifted and inspired, and I’m grateful for that.
Alix from A Ruffled Life is such a whirlwind ball of energy that she can’t help but take you along with her. I remember her saying to me that she believes in hard work, and I loved that she shared that with me because I do too. (And her deer business card was ridiculously cute.)
Making It Lovely is one of the biggest blogs on the block, but Nicole still always takes a moment to say a genuine hello. I think that speaks volumes.
Amber is the blogger behind Damask Love (and that rad embossed notebook). This girl is not only a riot to talk to, but savvy and smart about the business — I love that she doesn’t take herself too seriously.
You know I’m pals with Chelsey (A.K.A. The Paper Mama), so it’s no surprise that I think she’s amazing. She’s an artist, a maker, a writer, a mom, and comes up with some of the most creative ideas around.
I met the Shop Sweet Lulu girls in person for the first time at Alt, but they made me feel like we were old friends. Beyond being completely fun, they’ve built a brand that is clear, concise, and kind of brilliant.
I met Heidi early in the conference, and it was a total treat. Every time I saw her she was smiling. She’s a designer (her company is Idieh Design), and her business cards were killer. Not to mention the fact that they had a little temporary tattoo.
Kelly has been blogging at Design Crush for seven years. As a veteran blogger, she told me that she decided to go simple this year, and hand out a small, round sticker business card. I love the simplicity and the confidence in her choice.
Come back Friday for the third and final group of peeps who I think are doing it right! xoxo
