altitude design summit 2011

the view from our hotel

Well, I am back from quite a whirlwind and hardly slowing down.  I was in California for 4 days shopping for the store (pictures of that to come), woke up the next morning and caught a flight to Salt Lake City for the Altitude Design Summit and am leaving in a few days for another buying trip in New York.  Yikes.  Thinking about it starts to overwhelm me...
Anyway, about Alt.  It was fantastic.  A little daunting, but fantastic.  I am still trying to process all we learned (I should be on twitter how often?), but had so much fun and can't wait to put all this new information to use.  My brain is still on overload, so for now how about we just look at the pictures...

having fun on the streets of Salt Lake
everywhere we went people stopped to ask us about our madpax
a much needed stop for lunch
I think we needed the beer more as much as we needed the food.
don't you love checking out Anthropology in every city you go to?
you know its going to be good when you walk in and they hand you a lunch box full of free goodies...

the amazing french confectionary in the hotel.
and, of course, me with mondo from Season 8 Project Runway
It was a wonderful trip and I feel ready to tackle some of my creative projects that were starting to fade.  It was great inspiration to say the least...  Loved meeting so many of you!  Hopefully we'll be back next year!
