A rainy weekend is on tap in Brooklyn, so I guess I’ll be home organizing my Pinterest boards, checking out a movie or 2, and planning our California roadtrip for later this year…any tips?
If you’re attending Alt Summit in NYC on the 20th, I hope you’ll stop by the early crafting session from 8-10am because I’ll be hosting with Jenny Komenda and Mara Kofoed! Can’t wait to meet you all!
Congrats Kathryn & Ryan on your new baby girl! She’s a cutie!
Little by little I’ve been spring cleaning my closets and have a bunch of new or practically new stuff for sale. Please somebody take them off my hands! For some reason I’m in total purge mode, so I’ve got a ton more to add, but figured I’d start with a couple of things and see how it goes.
Enjoy your weekend!

All this week I’ll be guest pinning for design*sponge as their June Guest Pinner and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be focusing on their theme for the month, weddings & parties (keeping it modern of course!), so hopefully you’ll be able to glean some inspiration for your own events, weddings or otherwise. Hope you’ll follow along!

If you’re in the city (particularly Brooklyn) this weekend and are engaged, you should definitely stop by the 1st annual Atlantic Avenue Wedding Extravaganza happening Saturday, 10am to 5pm. It’s a totally free event happening all day, and featuring all 28 local businesses you’ll find just within a few blocks of Atlantic Ave between Columbia St to 4th Ave. Starting with brunch at 10am at Bacchus Bistrot (409 Atlantic) or M.O.B. Restaurant (525 Atlantic), event goers can spend the day scoping out potential locations for their wedding, meet local vendors (from dresses and wedding cakes to wine and hair stylists), and listen to awesome wedding bands perform on Boerum Place and along the length of the avenue. There will be 2 mock weddings at the art deco venue Roulette at 1:30pm & an outdoor fashion show featuring dresses for the bridal party at 4:30pm on Boerum Place and Atlantic. Every couple walks away with an event program showcasing all participating vendors, and you’ll have a chance to take part in an ongoing contest throughout the day where you can win 1 of 3 prizes, the top one worth $1700+! Check out all the details here.
On the day-of go to Boerum Place and Atlantic to get your sweepstakes ticket and check in!
For information on all the businesses participating and for full schedule, head over the Atlantic Ave BID site.
