Pottery Barn Kids + Handmade Charlotte Craft Event

IMG_0062

I hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday so far!  I’m in-flight to Vegas but wanted to quickly pop in to let you know of an upcoming event!  While I was in Salt Lake City last month, I had the pleasure of dropping in on a Sundance show with Rachel Faucett of Handmade Charlotte and she made a huge impression on me.  If you’ve ever met Rachel, you know she is a big personality with an even bigger heart.  We talked for the entire bus ride up to the film festival and I was so excited to hear about some of the amazing collaborations she had coming up and jumped at the chance to help her spread the word.

Rachel has collaborated with Pottery Barn Kids on some darling craft kits for kids and I’ll be hosting a free in-store craft event that’s going on at Pottery Barn Kids next weekend (Saturday, March 7th).  Although it will be going on all around the country (find your local store here), but I’ll be at our local Columbus store at Polaris Fashion Place leading the craft and introducing you to do adorable kits.  All kids are invited to make a free craft project – super hero wrist cuffs or an owl habitat.  These projects compliment the Handmade Charlotte DIY kits that are now available for purchase at Pottery Barn Kids.  I love they’re creative, yet accessible for the kiddos.  The superhero kits remind me of my six (yes six) nephews and I can totally imagine my niece sitting down and playing with the lacing girls kit (shown above).

I would love to see you all come out!  There are two sessions – one from 11am-11:30am and another from 11:30am-12pm on Saturday, March 7th. You have to RSVP for the event – so please call you local store asap to rsvp!

See you there!

Everything But the House – A Giveaway!

EBTH

It’s a wonderful Thursday, guys! I have a really fascinating giveaway to bring to you from Everything But the House.  I wanted to share this one with you guys because it’s new, unique, and it’s heavily concentrated in my area, although they do ship nationwide.

People always ask me where I shop for antique or unique odds and ends around Columbus, but truth be told, I don’t go to many stores, I mostly scour estate sales and garage sales.  Here is where Everything But the House comes in.  It’s an online estate sale with bidding/auction type style which I’ve found very fun. You can place your starting bid and the highest you’re willing to pay and then their system bids for you – within your price range.

So, onto the fun part!  Here are the items I’ve either recently won (Eee!) or am currently bidding on (fingers crossed!). Sometimes it’s hard to envision someone else’s stuff in a more modern or cool way when it’s surrounded but other pieces that aren’t your cup of tea, but just like at a real estate sale, you’ve got to look past the life the item used to have and look at how it could be.

Remembering 2013 + a giveaway!

Let’s try this again! My apologies that this giveaway went awry last week.  I had some issues and was at a photoshoot all day without my computer, so I had to take it down until it could be revamped. Anyways, we have an even better prize for you today, so let’s get started!

Before I went to Alt, I had a bit of an issue with space on my phone.  It was all taken up with photos, none of which I wanted to delete from my phone, or download to the photo abyss of my hard drive. So many of the photos I love are on Instagram (do you recognize these?) but I wanted to get them off my phone and get them into my hands.

In this digital age, we share, tweet, and tag photos online, but how often do we actually print them out? When’s the last time you’ve printed photos? I can honestly say that (until now) I hadn’t printed out photos since college (wedding prints excluded).

We’re going to change today, however. The folks at Printic were kind enough to offer me some free prints, so I wanted to extend the offer you guys also (yay for really fun free things)! You can simply comment below to win a full box of 50 free prints… AND there will be TWO WINNERS and everyone else will get 1 print free with their next purchase with the code: 757369 (minimum 3 print order).

I hope you have fun with it!
