Meet/Make/Do (a blogger's retreat and workshop)

You may have seen some rumbling on my Instagram lately, but I never fully explained anything further than that about a really exciting event that I put together with two of my dear friends, Kelly of Studio DIY and Chelsea of Lovely Indeed. This event is literally one year in the making. It all started when I went to go visit these two in LA for the day early last year…We went to Bottega Louie and the flower market and a few hours later, we started talking about this crazy idea.

It quickly unfolded and after what can only be described as an excessive number of Skype meetings, we decided we HAD to make this happen. So what’s ‘this’?


A three-day blogger’s retreat / workshop in Palm Springs, designed to recharge and inspire. All sponsored by the fine folks at Bing. There will be plenty of relaxing by the pool, in between brainstorming sessions and project/styling activities. And that’s probably all I should say for now, except that we’ve invited some very awesome blogger’s to participate. The whole thing will go down at the end of February and we’ll be sharing plenty of inspiration photos and projects from our time there.

You can follow along with the hashtag #MeetMakeBing and I’m sure I’ll be posting more deets either here or on my Instagram as we get closer.

P.S. If all goes well, we will more than likely roll out more events like this one. So even though this first event is invite only, there just may be a chance for you to participate in the future.
