Style Social Blogger Series

So last night I went to the first event in the Style Social Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Series. It was a DIY Decor event at Anthropologie hosted by Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest and Jen Gotch of ban.do.

It was ah-MAZ-ing.
I was having one of those days where all I wanted to do was stay under the blankets and read. But I had signed up for the event and I've been wanting to meet more crafty people, so I went, albeit all frazzled and (of course) late.

When I arrived, it was kind of like magic.
Bri and Jen had set up tables filled with crafty goodies--it was like an explosion of awesome: glitter, balloons, washi tape, stickers, twine, golden animals, paperclips with attitude, sparkly twine, and knick knacks galore.
We were invited to use any of the supplies we wanted to make a fun garland. I just loved being in a gorgeous setting making crafts, laughing, taking pictures, and just letting our inspiration take us anywhere.
It was exactly what I needed. Also, it was crazy fun meeting Bri and Jen, who were both adorable as can be and super nice--exactly what you'd expect from such creative women!
I came home and promptly hung my garland on the very empty wall above my desk. It makes me smile to look at it, and it reminds me to just loosen up and have fun.

Many thanks to Bri and Jen for such a rockin' idea, to the team at Anthropologie & The Americana at Brand, and all the crafty contributors--especially Angela & Ithyle, who provided the gold animals that have stolen my heart.

There are more workshops coming up over the next few weeks--I'll definitely be going. If you're in the area, maybe I'll see you there!
