If you have been following me on this blog or over on Instagram you know my love for Behr paint. It’s my go to for all painting projects and pretty paint colors.
Well, I have been holding a little secret and I am so excited to share with you that I have partnered with BEHR paint and joined their Behr DIY expert team. I can’t wait to share lots of fun painting , DIY and some interior projects with you for the rest of 2015.
Today I thought I would start it off sharing one of my favorite pink hues that is always stocked in my paint collection:
I quickly fell in love with Sugar Blossom jewelry after receiving my very first bracelet. I wear one pretty much everyday, and sometimes all at once. They are so comfortable . The cute little pink tassels are my favorite along with the gold heart charm.
I don’t know about you, but during the summer months I always feel behind when it comes to scrapbook + journaling. I had so much fun making these pages, especially with my new typewriter. Hop on over to Maggie’s blog to see the full layout.
Yesterday I shared part one of our Friday Harbor workshop. Today I am excited to share with you part two; our picnic lunch.
The girls and I had lots of idea’s on what we wanted to serve at the workshop because lets face it, we can’t craft without a little sugar. With the timing of the Island Ferry and workshop being in the middle of the afternoon into evening we thought It would be fun to have a picnic lunch in the barn… it was pretty magical.
How has it been over a month since BE CRAFTY traveled to the San Juan Islands ??
Earlier this spring my friends Ashely, Lesley , Sara and I chatted about getting together to host a workshop together. I am always inspired by these girls and the work they create, how could I say no . Plus, Sara invited us to the the beautiful island where she lives. I am so glad she did.
The workshop took place down a dirt road in middle of the Island in a dreamy old rustic barn.
Ashley created the name tags for all the attendees. Lesley personalized them with her fancy handwriting skills.
Once the barn doors were open and everyone settled in we gathered around the table . We started the workshop off with introductions. I love this time as we get to learn a little bit about each other before we start crafting.
I taught the first project of the afternoon. Since I love panting, I thought it would be fun to crate a project that incorporated my love for paint and color. Before we got to the painting we created a macramé to hang our painted pot.
After everyone created their macrame we had a painting party. The table was filled with eye candy paint colors from Behr paint.
The painted pots were set aside to dry as we tuned into Ashely as she taught us how to better use our phone cameras with tips from her phone photography Snap Shops course . She usually teaches online, so it was such a treat to get to learn from her in person.
After her teaching, Ashely led a photography related craft. Everyone got their picture taken with the bouquet of balloons with a mini polaroid camera to use in their project. There might have been one less white balloon after all the photos were taken ……..
Maggie Holmes sent us embellishments from her Confetti collection to decorate our painted wood picture holders.
Throughout the workshop cute little deer popped in to surprise us with a giveaway. A big thanks to our giveaway sponsors :
