Alt Design Summit- NYC

Next week I am attending a blogger conference, Alt Summit, in NYC.  It's a conference for bloggers of all different sorts to come together and discuss ideas and learn whats working for others as well as meet with brands with the potential to collaborate.  All in all a great networking event!  And guess where it's being held?! Martha Stewart Living Ominmedia in Manhattan!  How cool is that?  What if I run into her in the hallways?  I. Would. Die.

I am going to a sponsored dinner on Wednesday night with Hayneedle at Morimoto's- seriously? so cool.

Here is the schedule for Thursday and let me tell you it is a blogger-star-studded event!
