March Glimpse

Soooooo.... I think I'm back. My blogging hiatus ended up being a lot longer than I anticipated. And now apparently March is over (when did that happen?).  Here's what I've been up to...

 My big event, Greenville Grok, went off without a hitch. Which meant I went without a lot of sleep.

 One of my awesome volunteers.

 Lots of smart people and fancy coffee.

 Special signage for our big sponsor
Lib made the logo out of wire, then wrapped it in yarn. It only took about 8 hours.

Waiting for the afterparty to start. 
Paper chandelier made by Lib and I, custom pillows printed by Dapper Ink.

 The highlight of the afterparty: mini milkshakes!
And my dear friend Emily.

Also in March, Cory and I attended a Farm to Table dinner hosted by our favorite local organic grocer, Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery.

We grabbed some veggies while we were there.

Space manicure, done by the amazing Janelle.

 Trying to win at Life.

March also marked the departure of one of my best friends, Heather.
These dear folk are now in Chicago, which really stinks (at least for me).

After Grok, I spent the rest of the month packing up their house, helping with the move, and hosting a farewell party.  For the party, I printed off lots of pictures from Facebook, and stuck them up all over using washi tape. It was really fun to look back on old memories and all the people who love them.

 What's a party without cupcakes?

And of course a fire.

Oooo, love the orange and gray chandelier! Do you have a tutorial somewhere?

Erin said...

Thanks! No tutorial, but it's very simple. We took 12x12 sheets of colored cardstock, and had them cut into 2x12 strips (had them cut at a copy shop). Then the strips were sewed together, with a little space left in between. We sewed each color in a separate strand, but you could mix them up. Then we assembled the chandelier by attaching the different strands to the ceiling, and cutting them at different lengths.

This garland: is the same basic idea, but draped instead of hung vertically. Super easy and really quick to make.
