 ONE | The School of Styling Aug. 4-6 | This brand new workshop created by Kaitlin Holland of Simply Put Vintage sounds like an absolute dream! Here is the description of the lovely conference...

"The School of Styling is a workshop for creative individuals looking to deepen their knowledge of business and gain experience styling, no matter their profession. Our goal is to teach and equip new and established wedding and event stylists, interior designers, photographers, bloggers, prop stylists, and business owners how to design and style a space, event, or photo shoot creatively. We believe in the power of community and we have strategically created this workshop to foster creative and encouraging relationships." 

I would love more than anything to be able to attend this conference in August. I truly believe this conference will be so incredibly beneficial for my business and my aspirations for Morgan Alexandra. I will be counting my pennies and crossing my fingers!

TWO | Making Things Happen Oct. 27-28 | I have wanted to attend Making Things Happen with Lara Casey, Emily Ley, Nancy Ray and so many other inspiring women for many years now. This is the first step many creatives take to turn their dreams and goals into reality. I would love the opportunity to dig deep into my fears and better define my core!

THREE | Trouvaille Oct. 5-7 | This stunning workshop is put on by Rhi of Hey Gorgeous Events and it is just that... GORGEOUS! This conference is truly a hands on design intensive created for event planners and designers to better their skills and businesses.

FOUR | The Influence Conference Sept. 25-27 | This incredible conference is all about discovering how God works through you to reach others! Whether you are a blogger or a social media user, this event is about how you can influence your community through faith.

FIVE | Return to Rest 2015 | When I first found this retreat last fall, it was all I could do to not buy my way to New Hampshire right then and there. Created by women of faith, this conference is rooted in taking time to rest in the Word and with others around you rather than worrying about your followers or likes.

SIX | AH Inspired Sept. 14-17 | This darling conference by Amber Housley is created for women who own a creative business and are searching for close-knit-catch-you-when-you-fall community. I love the idea of a creative community where you can share your fears and your successes.

SEVEN | The Stationery Academy July 24-26 | This conference is absolutely made for the paper lover. I know I'm raising my hand over here! With a panel of amazing paper-preneurs, you will leave this conference with so much advice, knowledge and support from other creatives.

Have you attended one or more of the above conferences? I would absolutely love to hear about your experiences!


  1. There are so many amazing conferences that I want to attend! Why doesn't money grow on trees so that I can go to all of them?! Haha. I'm going to check out the one in Chapel Hill since that is close!

  2. You hit the nail on the head with all of these, I'm pretty sure I'm dying to go to all of them! Maybe one day :) Also, I saw on your instagram that you were at the event at Stone River last night and so was I! Small world! Lara Casey was WONDERFUL!!

  3. I just stumbled upon this post of yours, and I have almost the exact same blog post written in my drafts on my blog! Most of these creative conferences you've listed are my dream ones, too... someday I would absolutely love to attend one/many of them!

  4. Hi Morgan -- Thank you SO much for the kind words about AH Inspired! Of course, we would love to have you join us! If there is anything at all I can help answer, I'm here for you. I'm such a big supporter of conferences and workshops and agree that MTH, Stationery Academy and Trouvaille are great investments, too! You can also check out a free webinar I hosted recently about getting the most out of creative conferences: (password: inspired). Have a lovely day! xo Amber
