I’m finally getting around to writing about my Alt experience. By now you’ve read all the re-caps and seen the beautiful cards, so I wanted to give you a more personal look into my experience and share with you some of my new blog crushes.
1. The Artful Desperado - Gabriel’s blog is a breath of fresh air in the Art blog space. He really knows what he’s talking about. I met him over a couple drinks in a saloon at the hotel. He’s hilarious, and I must say it was nice being around a guy after so much estrogen. His blog has become a daily dose of artful inspiration for me.
2. The Field Trip Company - Technically this isn’t a blog. It’s an adventure company (which I must say is even more awesome). Natalie and I crossed paths a few times during Alt. First was at a Round Table about Facing our Fears on Friday morning. She was overflowing with energy and big ideas. I really love the idea behind her company and can’t wait for them to come to LA.
3. Michelle Edgemont - Michelle actually led the Round Table where Natalie and I met (fun fact), but the first time I met Michelle was at the Hello Social Wednesday afternoon… Yes, before Alt officially started. Michelle is a floral and wedding designer in Brooklyn and has so much great stuff going on. As a bride myself, Michelle’s creative blog has given me even more reading material. Plus, she’s just an awesome person.
4. Pinegate Road - As is the case with a lot of people I meet at Alt, I met Kelsey through someone else. We were standing around, and then other people came to stand with us, and we all started talking. Kelsey is a grad student at SCAD studying design blogs and hand lettering… HELLO! Amazing… Her blog is beautiful and well crafted. A new favorite for sure.
5. The Style Umbrella - Ashley and I shared a car together to our Wednesday night dinner hosted by Citizens of Humanity. She’s an accomplished writer with a silly sense of humor. We hit it off right away. I loved bumping into her at different panels and parties. Her style blog is fun and fresh, just like her personality.
