i swear each time we team up with anthropologie for an event it’s more fun than the last. we created this valentine’s paper locket DIY that we shared in the magazine and right here in our make it column, and last week we taught a bunch of new friends how to customize their own at the anthro store at the americana at brand here in los angeles.

so many cute faces showed up, and they weren’t kidding around on the crafting.

natalie and i loved interacting with fellow DIY fiends. those latte bowls work perfect for cereal but also to display all of our supplies. they have a lot of great colors.

the team at anthro always has the best treats for us. i mean, champagne and rasberries? okay!

we had all our crafters bring photos from home to personalize their lockets.

natalie was happy to give detailed instructions to a cute little creator who came out to play.

the craftmaster wore this stunning lace-back dress.

there were some awesomely personalized photos and sayings…i know we can all relate to that statement from time to time.

i want to thank everyone who came out and helped bring make it to life! i hope to do another workshop soon!

see a little clip of the action here…thanks wade for capturing that!
