i was thrilled when the americana at brand asked jen and I to throw a DIY event at anthopologie this month. i’ve been a big fan of that store ever since I was a kid. one thing i always admired the most was the visual presentations that store puts together. so much effort goes into the merchandising, and I totally appreciate that. (right?!)

to be able to go craft wild and fill all of those anthropologie bowls with glitter, balloons, stickers, clips…(everything a crafter can imagine, really) well, that was pretty amazing. and we had an awesome turnout! so many people came and made inspiration strings with us (i definitely teared up when a few girls said they had driven from mexico that day to come!)

it was also really special to be able to talk with DLF readers face to face. so many times it feels like i am hidden behind this blog, so it’s cool to connect like that. and to be making such a fun craft while doing so. i wish i could show you what everyone made, i was so impressed!

and thanks to my dear friends kelly, emily, joy, audrey, bonnie, emma & elizabeth for coming out! that meant a lot to us!

some friends sent us these rad postcards for people to use – they are starting a company called the weaver house and i am in love with it already! (you have to watch that video!) and ann shen’s postcards are gorgeous too!!

knot & bow – you sure know how to send the ultimate packages of love. silver twine, heart stickers, metallic doilies…OH! and big thanks to angela+ithyle for making those adorable gold animals (no one could resist them!)

we really had the best time, and can’t wait to do it all again someday. I put all of your instagram photos & more of bonnie’s beautiful photos all in a facebook album over here. if you have any from the event, we would love to add to it, send em our way!

(thank you so much for capturing the event, bonnie. love your photos!)

    Anthropology has one of the most beautiful window displays. and when you go inside their store you can not feel anything but happy. I heard that each store has its on designer that does the decor. and their look does not all come from their corporate office, is that true?

    Scout says:

    Your bangs! They’re so cute! Also, doing an event for Anthropology sounds amazing! 🙂

    Scout says:

    I mean Anthropologie!

    I absolutely love this idea. I can’t wait to make one for a friend. She’s starting a year of traveling and moving around and this would be the perfect portable home decor and a great way to display memories from home.

    Abby says:

    i’m still finding glitter around my house… i might have used a little too much on my inspiration string (is that even possible?!)
