It’s about the people.

Why go to conferences? Why travel so much? Well, it’s about the people. The people I meet, the people I know, and the people I want to introduce myself to. I meet with other bloggers and companies. I move non-stop from morning to late late into the evening. It’s exhausting and exhilarating all at once. This year at the SLC Alt Summit I got to spend the best time with my roomies: Moorea, Whitney, Jen, and Morgan. Moorea, Whitney and I were so darn busy prepping our party at Alt that we barely had a chance to attend the actual conference, but I can’t replace the time we had together. It was silly and fun. We ended up spending the majority of our time in the party room and our hotel room. We slowly lost our minds from the lack of sleep and hard work. It really was worth it. That may explain the wonderful IG photos we created (plus video).

I’ll have more to share about the conference, but not now. I’m EXHAUSTED. I hope your week was wonderful! For now I’ll leave you with a video we made on day two of staying up till 2 AM prepping our party…

Beautiful Business Cards from Alt San Fran

Alt San Francisco // thepapermama.com

I turned my illustrated rings into business cards. You can find them here.

One of my favorite things about blogging conferences: the beautiful business cards. I’m such a visual person, they really connect me to the individual I’m meeting. You can introduce yourself and chat with someone for a while… and they may or may not remember what it is you do or what your website is. You hand them a unique and memorable business card: chances are they will remember you. At least that’s how it is for me. I mean, if you’re a blogger that writes about baking…. and you hand me a bizz card with a cookie attached: I will remember you.

Cookies.

I’m always just blown away by the variety of thoughtful cards at these gatherings. They are inspiring and oh so pretty. That’s why I take photos of them. Snap a photo and link to all my favorites (this means I can refer to these posts in the future, if I’d like remember the cards). Plus I want to share all these neat card ideas with all of you! All of these cards below tell me a little story about the blogger/business they come from. Enjoy!

Alt Summit NYC: Business card collections

Every time I head to a conference I get a TON of business cards from very lovely and talented people. I keep many of them for future reference, but really some get lost/torn up by my kiddo. SO, why haven’t I taken photos of my past cards? It seems like I should. Take photos, link, and collect my cards on Pinterest. Bam. Need to look up someone? I got it all organized. All of these ladies (and a couple of dudes) worked hard to create these mini masterpieces, and I want to remember them.

My first round of bizz cards are from Alt Summit in NYC 2013. A crazy collection of cool people. See a card you like? I highly suggest wandering to their site. Because I always see patterns/similarities in things… I had to organize the similar cards into groups. So many different ways I could have organized these, but these were my favorite.
