This past week I was lucky enough to attend Brit + Co's Re:Make Summit with fellow blogger Kara Harms. Re:make was created with the mission to bring women together to collaborate and spark creativity. The summit includes inspirational speeches from top female industry leaders such as Nasty Gal's Sophia Amoruso and Top Model Tyra Banks. We also had the opportunity to attend guided art workshops including watercolor and sketching. I flexed my creative muscles with a watercolor geometric abstract and sketched a diamond in the rough. The best part of the summit (besides all the awesome swag!) was meeting and listening to fellow women who are driven by their creativity. Courage was a common theme of the conference because as any self-employed artisan will tell you, it takes courage to break conformity and follow your passion.
One thing you will notice in all these pics is an explosion of color! Brit + Co is not afraid of using bright and bold hues to adorn every nook and cranny of their events. Along with the colors and decor, there was a vibrant energy among the attendees. There were so many people to chat with, activities to join and of coursing a ton of crafting. Highlights of the day included a book signing with Sophia Amoruso, a catwalk competition with Tyra Banks and getting my hair braided into a crown at the Braid Bar (see our mini end of day photoshoot below).

Gotta love all that swag!
As I mentioned earlier, one of my favorite parts of the conference was hanging with the stylists at the braid bar. I've been wanting a braid crown for many months now but felt too intimidated to try it myself. The summit took place at the Fort Mason docks giving us a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge on our way home. After a long day of fun and inspiration, watching a San Francisco sunset was the perfect end to a great day.
