Creative at heart is

for the hustler, the go-getter, the dream-chaser

for passionate, like-minded women

an experience by creatives, for creatives

more than a conference, it’s a lifestyle

The year for you.

We’ve hosted 6 conferences in 2 years, and while picking a favorite may feel like picking a favorite child (or dog ... or flavor of ice cream), we’ve got a feeling 2017 is going to be THE year.

here's to the creatives!

(yes, here's to you!)

Creative at Heart began in January 2015 and since then, we’ve traveled to 6 cities around the country & have over 300 alumni who are currently movers & shakers in the industry. We engage in educational sessions led by the leaders you stalk online (um, who really are JUST human, too), provide smaller panel groups specific to your craft, and hands-on break-out sessions to stretch those creative muscles.

hand-me-the-tissues-please moments.

the facts

We’re all about practical, TANGIBLE take-aways taught alongside heartfelt, 

This is for you if you’ve been in business 3-4 years, and you’re ready to re-group, re-direct & re-ignite your business flame.

This is for you if full-time is still a budding dream, and you’re tired of saying “no” to the “what-if’s” and “coulda-woulda’s”.

This is for you if you’re in the wedding industry OR not in the wedding industry (promise!), because being a creative at heart is more than just wedding day timelines & off-camera flash. 

We want all of you - yep, every single one - to feel welcome when you walk through our doors.

Who is this for?

This isn’t for you if you’re not fired up about being a #bosslady & would rather be learning the hard lessons alone.

This isn’t for you if you’re just fine working from home alone day in & day out without ever getting any real, “girl, me too!” moments with women who think just like you.
 
This isn’t for you if you’d rather keep your hard earned dollars in the bank, never reaping the benefits of investing in an experience that leads to even more dollars.

Who is this not for?

Just 'cause we want all of you to feel welcome doesn't mean we'll be the best fit - we get that - and we hope you'll find a space that is

We cater to anyone & everyone who calls themselves a “creative at heart” - from designers to photographers to hand-letterers to planners to strategists to shop owners

… you are welcome here. 

Both our Keynote & Breakout sessions teach on topics that can be carried across a wide array of industries; you’ll also receive one-on-one time in panel sessions specific to your craft. 

Our 2017 Conference

We have our sights set on Raleigh, N.C. for August 6-9, 2017. Our plan?

Quality over quantity.

We’re focusing on one conference & one conference only this year. We’re building a conference that will blow your mind ... An experience packed so full you’ll need an Alumni Mentorship program to help digest it all. (oh, don’t worry, we’ve got that part covered too!)

The Team

Kat Schmoyer

Founder and Visionary

I love seeing like-minded women challenge one another -

I get fired up over bringing creatives together

for the better.

I’m an independant lady myself; I get pretty excited when I figure something out on my own (insert office dance party for one). Without a doubt, I love what I do & do what I love. Having boss lady status works for me & I’m sure it works for you.
 
But you know what? 

10 months after pressing submit on my LLC application for Dear Sweetheart Events, I realized that going at it alone might be the death of me - and my dreams. As much as I thrive under pressure, the late nights spent googling were becoming too much. I needed help.

I needed women who got it, too. 

Creative at Heart isn’t about me.

Sure, I have a cool sounding title & get to meet women (like you) all over the country. But C@H isn’t about me, it’s about YOU. All of you. Every single one. 

C@H is a safe space for bold dreams to grow, confidence to take root & results to happen. 

I can’t wait to see you there!

Matt Schmoyer

Conference Husband

Emily Yost

Conference Administrator

Let’s be honest, Matt got roped into all this because of his crazy wife’s dreams! But you know what? He’s her biggest fan. Between running the AV, helping source (and eat) the meals & driving her all over the country (literally), he’s her knight in shining Redskins attire. He’s been there for every conference & spends the downtime with the C@H Husbands wearing bathrobes at the Late Night Treat (you don’t want to miss it!).

Emily is Kat’s all around go-to girl! From emails to invoices to marketing, Emily works hard behind the scenes assisting Kat in every aspect of the Creative at Heart experience. She keeps our instagram looking fabulous, sends Kat emoji-filled texts, & serves our attendees effortlessly. She’s a C@H Round 3 alumni and her very favorite part of conference weekend is the open, honest & heartfelt conversations that take place in panel groups.
