Hello Friends and Fellow Muses!
Last week, all five of the founding members of The Muse Project were able to meet in person for the first time at the Steem Creators Conference in Las Vegas! To say the energy was dynamic between us would be an understatement.
There is something so powerful about getting together with a group of like minded, intelligent, driven and grounded human beings. We immediately connected and it felt like we had been long time friends.
We are a group of five women that are working to promote, encourage and support women on the blockchain. The five founding members are @ogc, @lindseylambz, @everlove, @saramiller and @coruscate.
We will be posting a video of our panel discussion at the Steem Creators Conference soon where we dig a little deeper into what the Muse Project is all about and how each of us will contribute. We also filmed a fun video of us all chatting together where we discuss the Muse Project and eat some chocolate. Ok... a LOT of chocolate. We should have both of these videos posted on our page within the next week.
In the meantime, here are some shots of the Muses in action at the conference.
Shots Around the Conference
It wasn't all deep connection and strategic planning... we shared a LOT of laughter too! Oh look... there's a chocolate bar.

Sorry Carly @ogc... this one was too good to leave out!
The Garden of Eden represented in a big way at the conference! They brought all sorts of beautiful art and Steem Gear. @everlove and @saramiller are busy manning the table while a crew of Steemians check out their wares! Looks like @coruscate is hoarding a couple hats while deciding which one to get.
Time for a group photo! Look at all those beautiful Steemains.
The Steem Creators Conference Team!! One of our own muses @ogc was part of the trifecta that brought this conference to life alongside @steemcafe and @larrymorrison. Huge shoutout to all three of them. I think all five of us muses would agree that this was an event we will never forget.
The Muses Dominating the Stage at the Steem Creators Conference
Muse @lindseylambz on stage with @richardcrill, @mariannewest and @hypnoprenuer talking about how to start your own Steem Meetup Group. I'm pretty sure everyone left that panel feeling fired up to go home and start a Meetup. They were all so inspirational! [Photo by @scottshots]
All five of us on stage for the Women's Panel Discussion at the conference! We can't wait to share the video of our panel discussion with you all. [Photo by @scottshots]
@coruscate closed out the second day of the conference with a packed room. She spoke about taking risks, letting down your guard, and how to increase meaningful engagement on your posts. Click HERE to watch a video of her presentation.
@everlove graced the stage with her creative energy and shared all about the many collaborate art projects she is bringing to the platform. Check out her page to learn more about her projects - Artists in Bloom and the Collaborative Art Journey.[Photo by @scottshots]
@lindseylambz is back at it again! She and @richardcrill share about their amazing new adventure, as they take off in @thedodgemahal. [Photo by @scottshots... I think by now you get the picture that Scott is an amazing photographer!]
The Muses Have a Lunch Brainstorming Session ... with Food from the Garden of Eden!
This meal was 100% sustainably sourced and packed in all the way from the Garden of Eden! The greens from their garden were still so fresh and delicious.
This brie was some kind of triple cream heaven.
@coruscate shoving her face with that triple cream brie while @everlove creates beautiful bites for the group. She is known for crafting bites that are "19 things on a leaf with sauce". They were delicious!
More than enough food for everyone. The giving nature of the @gardenofeden crew left a lasting impression on everyone who attended the event.
After Hours Adventures

That's a Wrap!
Coming out of this conference we are more connected and fired up than ever. We can't wait to get the ball rolling with this project and work towards our goals of empowering and supporting women on the blockchain. Watch for our panel discussion video soon to learn more. In the meantime, feel free to check out our Mission Statement.
We hope you enjoyed following our adventures at the Steem Creators Conference.
