Urban Craft Camp is Here! 0

August 21, 2013

 

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 hello@urbancraftcamp.com.  We are always looking for creative minds to partner with.

Logo and flyer were designed by talented Marcie of Red Star Ink in case anyone is wondering :)

Anthropologie Valentine’s Event Recap 3

March 30, 2013

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.

Lovely displays.

Yummy treats.

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.

Thanks:  The Love Stitch for donating the crochet bow rings, My Three Sons for the sweet heart barrettes, Red Star Ink for the lovely heart cards, and Whisker Graphics for the cute glassiness bags.

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 :)

Best helpers ever, couldn’t have done without these ladies:  Conni, Jen & Jessica.

So many cute faces.

and fun ladies :)
