Speaking at Craft Culture


Last week I shared a little teaser on Instagram about Craft Culture - an upcoming workshop for small businesses. Insta only gives you so much space, so I thought I would fill you in on what Craft Culture is and what I'll be talking about. Craft Culture was started by Leanne Cairns an accessories designer (Belyn Design) who is from Arizona, but now lives in California. One of her dreams was to sell her creations at her favorite store, Anthropologie. Her dream came true this past year, and when that happened she realized that she wanted to be a part of helping entrepreneurs find success and achieve their dreams. Through business workshops, networking meet-ups and creative retreats, creatives will get to spend time with industry leaders in a small intimate setting to pick their brains and hear from their personal experiences.

Check out this video to see what I mean. (You might see a familiar face)

I'm so honored to be a part of the April 5th workshop at Monorchid (click here for details). Jessie Simonson from 31 Bits, award-winning author Pamela Slim, Ashley LeMieux from The Shine Project, and graphic designer Tara Hetzer will be speaking. There will also be a panel of very successful business owners, and yummy food and drinks to go along with the day. To view the full agenda, click here.

I will personally be speaking on how to make your products and images go viral on social media and specifically Pinterest. This will encompass some styling tips and tricks, as well as some Pinterest marketing and Instagram advice. I'm SOOOOO excited! Go sign up right now and get in on the early bird rate.

Pepperologie: A Five Course Study of Style

I can't wait for October for two reasons...1. Fall. 2. Pepperologie. My dear friend Jessie Artigue for Style & Pepper will be hosting a five course study of style here in Phoenix on October 26, 2013 at Domus from 10AM to 5PM along with Summer Bellessa from The Girls with Glasses, Jenny Strebe from Confession of a Hairstylist, Lauren McBride of Holistically Fit and...Me! YAY! I'm so honored to be a part of this wonderful day that is all about helping women put a little more flavor and spice into different areas of their life (style, DIY, hair, health and home). Jessie's whole goal is to help women become the best possible version of themselves, and my heart is for that too. I love that this is an event that is not only fun, but is all about encouragement and positivity for all areas of our lives.

Attendees of the one day workshop will get lunch, snacks and drinks provided. They also get a ton of swag from AWESOME sponsors (check out past ones here).  If you register before September 1st you get $100 off your ticket, so go here right now and sign up!
