Sometimes you need some external creative input – something that will boost your creative spirit and generate loads of creativity and happiness, reminding you about the awesomeness that your career choice actually entails but that you sometimes forget (e.g. while working on some less fun project, trying to make time schedules that nobody will follow or doing your taxes).
Yesterday this popped up in my Instagram feed and I literally jumped for joy – a conference specifically for designers! Focused on creativity and inspiration! In Madrid! With the extremely talented Gemma O'Brien, who will also host a workshop on brush script/hand lettering! Could it be more perfect? Imagine Madrid late October, still warm, sipping cava in the afternoon sun before heading inside to practice some hand lettering with Gemma. And, since I'm a hard working mom, let's not forget sleeping all night in a soft hotel bed!!
So now I just have to share this brilliant idea of me going away to Madrid for a few weekdays in October with my lovely husband and cross my fingers that one of my designer friends want to join me (if not, I might just go on my own...). Also: hoping for a bit more information in English soon, since I'm not great at Spanish.
