Our talented friend and graphic designer Marcie of Red Star Ink agreed on leading the workshop, so we knew we were onto something special. The event quickly sold out and we had a full house, with 32 attendees, making it quite an enjoyable morning!

When Vida was one-month old my friend and super talented photographer Rebecca Antuna took some pictures of her and Ian. It’s crazy how time flies because today little Vida is 6 months and I’m now sharing these pictures. I love how they turned out and I’m so glad we took them considering no one was getting any sleep and the house was upside down. These sweet memories will be with us forever!
If you are looking for a great photographer in San Diego be sure to check out Rebecca’s website to see her beautiful work. I should also mention that her Instagram feed is one of my favorites – I love how she captures those precious moments of her beautiful family :)

A few months ago Jen of My Three Sons and I held a fun “String Art” workshop at her lovely home in South Park, San Diego. It was so successful and fun that we’ve decided to continue the concept of making and mingling. After a lot of brainstorming we are excited to introduce you to “Urban Craft Camp” – creative craft workshops to inspire the maker in all of us. Our next class will be held at Progress, a modern boutique shop in South Park, San Diego and we’d love if you could join us for a great morning of crafting, mingling, and treats. We’ll show you how to create a one-of-a-kind tote bag incorporating hand printing, embroidery and other surface design techniques. Come Make + Mingle with us! Space is very limited so please go here to reserve your spot.
If you are interested in becoming involved and promoting your business please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for creative minds to partner with.

What a fun time we had at the Valentine’s event at the San Diego Anthropologie store. We had a full house of darling ladies ready to craft a Valentine garland that we created especially for the event.
Refreshing drinks and aren’t those jars adorable?
Still dreaming of those tablecloths.
Beautiful flower arrangements.
Everyone got to take this lovely goodie bag home full of goodies that a few of my local sweet friends and shop owners kindly donated to the event.
Sweet Conni helping me to prepare for the event.
Happy camper :)
Our face painting station was a big hit.
The sweet Anthropologie San Diego store managers, my big bump and I :)
So many cute faces.
and fun ladies :)
