Oops, I put together these pictures ages ago and completely forgot to post them. I didn’t manage to get many photos from the Altitude Design Summit, but here they are anyhow.
Here is Gabrielle Blair wearing on of my felt dahlia pins while introducing Mondo and Seth Aaron from Project Runway. Thrilling! I can hardly believe she was one of the organizers for this conference, a tremendous amount of work, and weeks later moved her whole family to France. Her tour of the amazing house that they’ve rented have been fantastic.
Project Runway’s Seth Aaron (a WA resident!) and Mondo. Awesome.
HP was showing off some of their computer designs and I loved this double happiness symbol on a netbook designed by Vivienne Tam.
My feet while sitting on the floor at a panel (I crept in late and all the seats were taken).
Amazing sunset #1.
Tequila and beers!
Amazing sunset #2.
The entrance to the Girls With Glasses and Kate Spade party.
The Girls With Glasses and Kate Spade party bag, we got fun fake glasses and a Tassi and a sample of Kate Spade’s new fragrance Twirl.

This is a Flexicord mini iPhone cord. It’s flexible but stays put so it works as a stand, as well as a USB cord for your iPhone. The Good:I love it for travel as it’s compact none of my other iPhone stands hold my iPhone at an angle for movie watching while in an airplane seat. The Bad: I used one as an iPhone cord in my living room for a while and it didn’t stand up to more than three months of use before the wires became separated. (To be fair, it’s no more or less than the wear and tear on the cord that came with the iPhone before that split as well.) One Flexicord lives in my travel case and so far so good.
I always pack too much food for travel, I like having a quick breakfast that I don’t have to leave the room for. I’m cranky in the mornings and taking away the detail of finding food in the mornings takes away a lot of the stress of travel.
I might or might not have stayed up late the night before my panel making a small felt flower pin using scissors I packed and the room’s sewing kit.
