i wanted to share a couple more photos from the artnest. above are the snapshots of the trades. oh my. the trades! they were so fantastic that it felt like christmas, each with their own unique artistic twist. wow. and there was also an amazing little tool kit gifted to all of us from artnest hosts julie and candice:
this is what it looked like closed. love the button + ribbon and anthro fabric. and this is what was inside:
how cute is this? loving how they stocked it with items we would use for the classes. these girls had touches like this all weekend. just really special, all the details. the lovely art nester, cassandra, made ridiculously adorable stitched envelopes that held all our class information:
speaking of talents and pretty things, have you seen julie’s book? it’s a book FULL of lovely, lovely projects that perfectly emulate anthro meets vintage meets sweet + adorable. i’ve gifted this book to several crafty ladies in my life and will continue to give this one out.
