2011 Summit of Awesome

I'm speaking at Hello Craft's Summit of Awesome again this year, October 20–22! I'll be traveling to the East Coast on an epic tour with my main squeeze to spend some relaxation time in Providence, Rhode Island with my fabulous uncles, visit Etsy HQ in Brooklyn and celebrate our fourth anniversary, then head to Baltimore for this year's incarnation of the crafty summit. How awesome is that?

On Thursday, October 20, I will join Rachel Bone and Jen Menkhaus for a panel called Community, Mafias and Street Teams. Anything with "mafias" in the title is guaranteed to be a lot of fun.

Then, on Saturday, October 22, I will lead Connecting to Your Community, an in-depth conversation into the importance of contributing to a community in order to achieve a balance between meaningful creative life and the hubbub of a commodity-driven marketplace.

I can't wait to meet new people, reconnect with friends I made at last year's Summit, and learn loads of great information, not to mention spread these ambidextrous ideas with like-minded individuals. If you're in the Baltimore area, Early Bird tickets are still available, and at $200 for three days of awesomeness, it's worth it.

I hope to see you there.
