The Business Cards of Alt Summit 2013

Hi y’all! I’m back from Alt Summit and trying to get back into the swing of normal life. It was the best, most exhausting four days of my life! While I’m still processing all of the information I took in, I decided to share some of my favorite business cards from the awesome bloggers and brands I met while in Salt Lake City. Since Alt is a conference for creative people, the business card exchange has become a beautiful and fun tradition, now in it’s fourth year. I have linked to all of their blogs so click around if you are looking for some awesome new people to follow, I still have some exploring to do myself!

Alt set up these boards in the hallway for everyone to stick their cards too, so fun! I was seriously amazed by all of the creativity!

Gull Rock Pottery Sculpture Garden

On my Maine road trip back in June, we received a tip to check out Gull Rock Pottery. It was well off the beaten path and totally out of our way but I’m so glad we took the trek. It’s a remote in-home pottery studio surrounded by an amazing sculpture garden on the water’s edge. It was really cool to wander through the property and in and out of the juts of land that held the sculptures.

A Beautiful Battlefield

The Antietam National Battlefield was one of our stops on our drive home. It’s hard to imagine that on this beautiful land was a bloody battle.

Jasper Beach – Billions of Stones

Jasper Beach was quite a site. Billions of stones rubbed smooth by the sea and piled high the entire length of the beach. Toward the top, the stones are large but by the time you reach the waters edge they are the size of fine gravel. Walking down the dune of stones is a beautiful site but the real beauty comes out when the stones are wet with seawater, which brings out their vibrancy.

We spent some time admiring the stones smoothness, marveling at their designs, building rock towers and laying down on the warm stones. You could spend weeks examining them because every stone is different and beautiful.
