It feels like it was just yesterday Lesley, Allison and I gathered at the MADE shop in downtown Tulsa to welcome Instagram and Be Crafty friends.
As the room filled so did our bellies. We were treated with mini donuts from Lick your Lips , coffee from Mod’s and yummy scones from The Round House . I can still hear the loud laughter, the kind where you realize that there is a whole lot of fun going on. Cute business cards were being passed as new friendships were made.
We ended the meet-up with some awesome giveaways from some of our favorite shops. A big thanks to all of our sponsors for donating your time and talent to our meet-up. We love what you do and feel blessed to have the opportunity to share your awesomeness!!!
And we couldn’t have a party without some awesome decorations. Studio Mucci provide us with the balloons and tissue garlands. Inspire Lovely made sure we had fancy bags to hold mini donuts and I think Lesley might have snuck away with the Nourishing Notes print that was featured on our dessert table.
After the meet up we were nourished with an amazing meal by Elote . Our bellies were filled and we were ready to craft the afternoon away. You’ll have to head on over to Lesley’s blog to see some of the food pictures. I think I was stuffing my face and didn’t get a chance to get a picture.
As soon as lunch was over we handed out the swag boxes. I don’t even know how to begin to thank the sponsors for all their hours, and hard work they put into providing for our crafters. Every little detail was over the moon and I hope you take a chance to check out their shops and support handmade.
After everyone opened their goodies, and boy did it feel like Christmas, we got right to work learning how to make chalkboard frames and painted wood spoons.
So many choices to be made as everyone chose their frame and paint colors. We all got a little creative when it came time to figure out how find room to dry 63 wood spoons and 21 chalkboard frames.
Let me just start off by saying this girl is A-MAZING!! We all gazed as we watched Lesley teach us more about chalk art and the many different techniques to use when writing on chalkboards. What a gift she has.
Wow. What a fun day. Thank You. Thank you to those who were apart of Be Crafty Tulsa. And thank you to my dear friend Jenna and Kate for helping take pictures. I will never forget this day and I hope that as a community you continue enjoy the beauty of creating handmade.
