I’m Speaking at Alt!

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this with you guys yet – I’m speaking at Alt!  For those of you who aren’t bloggers, Altitude Design Summit is an ultra fun conference for lifestyle and design bloggers and I am over-the-moon excited to be speaking there this year.  One of the best things about the conference is the unbelievable parties and amazing fashion, so expect some photos to come.  Plus, the cherry on top of the cake, hubby will be tagging along to Salt Lake to ski and a friend of ours even snagged us tickets to the dramatic feature at Sundance on Saturday night after the conference is over – it may literally be the most fabulous long weekend I’ve had in YEARS.

If any of you out there are bloggers and will be attending the conference, I’d love the chance to meetup and say hi!  I’ll be speaking on Thursday along with Kirsten, Mara, and Erin (all fabulous bloggers in their own right – if you haven’t checked them out I highly recommend doing so now) and we’ll be dishing all about how it’s still possible to start a blog and find success.

Finally today, all this talk about blogging and other bloggers has made me realize it’s been a while since I’ve highlighted some of my favorite finds from around the blogosphere.  So here’s a little roundup of what’s been catching my eye lately…

This DIY Play Hardware, Auto & Gas Store is so unbelievably cool – forget the kids, I want one for me! (You know how I like to play with paint chips.)

I’m smitten with the new-to-me blog Finding Joy.  It’s beautiful, it’s salient, it’s real – it’s everything I treasure in a blog.

Joanna always makes the BEST documentary recommendations.

I’m in awe of this hip and oh-so-tidy home office featured by Jen on I Heart Organizing.  If you think that pin board is cool, just wait until you get a look at the rest of the room – the inside of that cabinet is unbelievable.  (P.S. stay tuned for a fabulous giveaway from Jen next week!)

For more of my favorites, come join over 40,000 others and follow along on Pinterest.

Happy weekend!
