here.Typically, when I am selecting conferences to attend I am very very particular. I base it on the speakers being experts or creatives that I look up to, what's being taught, location, price and what information that is crucial to my investment, When I got word about AH Inspired and the speakers I knew I just had to be there.
We kicked the first night off with a lovely and colorful cocktail welcome party! Kim from The Tomkat Studio knocked it out of the park. We had such a great first night! Also, look at all the lovely speakers and staff in a pre-party photo op below!
Inspired was a collection of some of my favorite creatives. Some I have followed for years, others I have met in person and a lot I wanted to meet. It just all made perfect sense, oh and the occasional pj parties and surprises were just a added bonus. This conference has been one of the best in my opinion and worth the investment! So many fun memories!
One of the main reason I felt Inspired was worth the investment is because some of the headline speakers who I consider experts in their field and are continuously making a way for other creatives.

Speaking on topics like collaborations, SEO, blogging, client experience, branding, balancing life and work, floral design, watercolor, chalk lettering and so much more. One on one and more intimate time with the speakers was such amazing part of this journey. That alone is worth the investment I would say.
Sponsors: Just a few to mention Cricut, Emily Ley, May Designs, American Crafts, The Tomkat Studio, Lara Casey, Southern Weddings, Nauge Designs, Smitten on Paper, Shutterfly, Tieks, Mail Chimp and more!

Each speaker bought so much to each session and information that was obtainable, informative and applicable. I couldn't have asked for better content honestly! I felt refreshed, content and at peace returning home. So greatful for this intimate experience.
So thankful for the few days with other creative women, forming new relationships and soaking every beautiful moment up! Looking back at this group photo is such a beautiful thing, something that can not be measured, but only remembered I believe.
