Excuse me whilst I crash….

I’m back from Alt Summit in SLC.

My brain is full all the way to the top with new information.

via Instagram missiemort ,  I don’t know who the photobomb guy is


I learned lots of new things. I mean lots.

I met lots of people. I mean lots.

It was all good :)

One major accomplishment though- I was able to get my sister into some photos… she’s a bit photo averse (well so am I but she’s worse).

I’ve got a full update planned, but knowing myself I’ve got to let things percolate a bit in my head first.  Then I’ll share my thoughts with you.

Lots of “to do’s” for my blog:  fix my about page, make a media kit, email a few people I’d love to work with.

But for now, I’ve got groceries to buy and mail to sort through. All those good things you do when you come back into town.

’til Wednesday,

    Sounds like a very inspiring trip! I just started a new blog and can’t wait to start taking part in those kinds of inspiring opportunities!

    So funny that guy photo bomber your shot!

    What app did you use to make your Instagram collage with? I love the Smile.

      To make my instagram collages I use PicFrame. Then I pull the photo into Phonto (another app) and add the icon. The icon is actually a font from Rhonna Designs. With phonto you can write on your photos with fonts, this includes dingbats (like the rhonna font). Then just pulled it into Instagram. It sounds complicated but it’s pretty easy!
