Bead Decorating Workshop Recap

Bead Decorating Workshop RecapTwo weeks ago, I traveled to Austin, TX to attend my best friend’s wedding. During my trip, I was fortunate enough to team up with Becky of The Pink Samurai and host a bead decorating workshop. I met Becky through Twitter a while back and we became instant friends. That’s right– we planned an entire workshop without ever meeting in person first. The internet is seriously amazing!

First and foremost, we are so thankful to all of the makers who contributed to our amazing goodie bags! Here’s what everyone got:

The Burlap Bag not only hosted us in their fantastic shop, but they also donated one of their candles to everyone.

– Nail polish from Julep in the prettiest shades

– Adorable hand-printed gift tags from Lauren Kiedaisch

– The coolest temporary tattoos from Little Skunk Co

– Gorgeous illustrated postcards by Jenni Haikonen of Bottomley Cottage

– Amazingly fun prints from Tiny Deer Studio

– Becky also donated the cutest buttons ever– OMG CAKE and Food Love

I also want to thank Deco Art for supplying such lovely paint and Briley Noel for taking the photos!

Bead Decorating Workshop Recap The brilliant ladies from 2 Tarts Bakery also came with treats. I’m talking homemade pop tarts and the fluffiest pink icing ever– the kind that you’d consider moving to Texas for.
