4th Birthday Bash: The Re-Cap

I am so excited to be able to share a few images from our 4th Birthday Bash!

Our store was stocked to the brim with gorgeous goodies from Smock and Jenna, from the Smock team, joined us and gave lessons in pinwheel-making all evening long.

Erin from Wild Orchid Baking Co. kept our bellies full with her incredible cupcakes. And, satisfying our sweet-tooth tendencies, Laurie from Lolly Candy put together an adorable spread of gummies and chocolates while the team at The Goldenrod provided their signature saltwater taffy. Finally, our pals at The Juicery kept us cool and hydrated with their brand new artisan ice pops.

We were thrilled to be able to give away 3 amazing door prizes including custom letterpress stationery from Smock, a Smock goodie-box and a gift certificate to Gus & Ruby Letterpress. It’s always such fun to be able to give back to all our fabulous customers in some small way.

Thank you so very much to all of you who came out for the event! We had an absolute blast celebrating with so many of you. And, a big thank you to Megan from Emilie Inc. Photography for capturing all the fun. It was a joyful night full of good friends, great crafts and sweet treats; we are lucky gals, indeed.

It’s almost party time!

We are just so darn excited for our 4th Birthday Bash this coming Thursday, August 8th, from 6-8pm. Are you getting excited? Hope so!

We are getting the store all prepped and prettied for you and adding all sorts of fabulous Smock products to the mix for your perusal. Smock has the most fun, fabulous patterns for their products.

And on Thursday, it’ll all be 20% OFF in celebration!

Just a taste of all the pretty paper:
