Make and Mingle Event at West Elm in Denver


Thanks for all the amazing comments and supportive words after our most recent ‘keeping it real’ post. We feel all the love. It felt good to keep it real on the computer screen – we’re real behind the screen, so may as well be real on it, huh? We know y’all have joys and struggles, too, so now let’s get together to stitch n’ bitch…and have fun, of course! Join us, will you?

We’re at it again. Kaitlin at The Every Hostess and us are hosting our 2nd Make & Mingle event at West Elm in Denver, CO. We are going to make DIY cross-stitch holiday cards. No sewing experience required – seriously, none – if we can do it, you can too! Buy your tickets here.

We’ll provide everything to make the cards look a little something like this…



Thanks to amazing sponsors like Curly Girl Design, Fleur de Lis a paperieCory Renee, Bake it Pretty, and Sage 8 Studio you will go home with some wonderful swag. You can sip cups of decaf or caffeinated cheer thanks to Peet’s Coffee & Tea. Plus, Ladybird Poppy will lift your spirits with her gorgeous floral arrangements, too. It’s going to be pretty. Colby Elizabeth Photography will be there to snap all the memories.

Help us keep the lost art of hand-written cards and old-fashioned mail alive, and join us for a night of crafting fun! Plus, who doesn’t want to spend the evening in a gorgeous store like West Elm? Spread the good cheer, and invite friends!

Make & Mingle Macaron Workshop


It’s happening. It’s seriously happening.

Along with Kaitlin at The Every Hostess, we are thrilled to announce a new series for those in Colorado who love to create, learn a new craft and have fun while doing it.

We shall call it Make & Mingle.

The kick-off workshop of the series is super sweet, literally. We are hosting a Make & Mingle Macaron Workshop at Glaze, the Baum Cake Shoppe, in Denver, CO.

The pretty and delicious desserts that fill pastry shops seem so daunting and difficult to make. Well, the only way to learn how to make a Macaron is to just do it. We are going to be in the kitchen with a Glaze pastry chef who will teach us how to create the delicate, gluten-free desserts.

We only have 20 spots, so hurry up and sign up. Workshop is May 18 from 5:30-8 p.m. Call 720.387.7890 to register. Tickets are $60.

It will be a lovely evening, and a great opportunity for the creative community of Colorado to connect. Don’t worry, we won’t send you home empty-handed. You’ll get to take $20 worth of macarons with you, as well as other fun goodies in your swag bag, including a gorgeous print from The First Snow. We are suckers for swag bags.

Thanks in advance to Prema who is going to rock your world with stunning florals. And, thanks to Fleur de Lis for a pretty invite.


We can’t wait to Make & Mingle with you.
