are you an inspiration hoarder? i keep little knick knacks from everywhere i go. i usually tack them up to the cork boards in my office. but lately i have been into what we call an “inspiration string.” it’s a twist on the ole mood board!

flyer designed by anthropologie

i hope you can come hang out and make these cool inspiration strings with us at the Anthropologie store at The Americana at Brand on March 22nd in LA! I will be hosting the event with my friend jen {the co-founder of ban.do!} and we will have all sorts of fun supplies to make some of these beautiful strings of your own.

we encourage you to also bring some of your own items to add that personal touch: photo strips, postcards, little notes. these will make it that much more special!

make sure to rsvp to anthroevents@anthropologie.com. can’t wait to see some of your faces there! let me know if you are comin! OH! and there’s no specific start & end time to the craft so feel free to come anytime between 6-9!



Add your own
