the best part about teaching blogshop in chicago is that i get to stay at my mom’s house and relax with family after class. my mom made angela & i roast, potatoes and carrots when we got home from teaching. it was awesome. as usual, we had another stellar group of students attend this time. we taught in our friend’s studio (the barkers) again and had a great time.
let’s get into the goodie bag breakdown…
we like the message these pencils by amanda catherine designs deliver. work hard & be kind!
and on that note, i love these black and white polka dot thank you cards by fox and anchor paper by type a press.
caitlin of fox glove studio created all of our cheerful floral arrangements for this class..
you know by now that bkrs are my favorite water bottles ever.
fox glove studio made this festive geometric garland into a photo backdrop for the smilebooth we had on hand.
we had a blast taking pictures, and you can see all of them from saturday here, and sunday here! you can also check out our instagram feed for #blogshopchicago here!
these notepads by knock knock have catchy sayings. i love the mint & gold combo too.
i use tea towels to wrap a gift or package or for its obvious kitchen use. map tote makes these 3 designs. the cocktail themed shown above is my pick.
hunter’s hideaway is an etsy shop that sells these stamp duos that make designs when you repeat them, and we thought they’s be perfect for the goodie bags.
it’s vital to keep cards and gift wrapping supplies on hand. a thank you goes a long way. we gave each student a kit from california craft with stickers, tags, bags and twine for quick projects.
i’ve been wearing this delicate triangle ring nonstop since chicago. virginie millefiori makes some really cool jewelry and we gave these colorful rings to our chicago students.
