I know, I know. We are one whole week into 2015, and I’m JUST NOW sharing my New Year’s resolutions!! I had a few in mind, but I knew everything would change after the Creative @ Heart Conference I attended the past few days!! I had never been to a conference before, so I had no idea what to expect. I knew a few people going, and I like to pretend I knew everyone else (because you know….Instagram stalking is a thing!). My 2 1/2 hour car ride to Staunton, VA felt like the longest trip ever!! I was so nervous about meeting so many new faces! 

Creative @ Heart is a conference for creative women to gather together and lift each other up and support one another. From photographers, to calligraphers, paper designers, event planners, floral designers, custom glass etchers, bloggers, and even lingerie designers– it was an amazing group of creative women to learn from and grow with. Kat Schmoyer and Taylor Schumann had never put together a conference, but you would never be able to tell that! Everything was styled perfectly and organized to a T. All the speakers and break-out group members were so inspiring and willing to answer any and all questions with an open heart! Of course, there were many (happy) tears from the inspiration and joy everyone was feeling. I left Creative @ Heart a different person, ready to take on the world, and ready to grow my wonderful little business, and to lift others up as much as I can.
