re:make 2016 / the makers.

I met so many fabulous makers at re:make this year. I was super impressed and inspired by all the talent and creativity housed under one roof. I wanted to take all the things home with me.

re:make 2016 / the company.

These ladies. We were so glad we paid for all day parking because we ended up staying the entire seven hours of Re:Make. I know; I couldn’t believe it either. We were exhausted by the end of it.

There were more fun hands-on activities throughout the venue, including leather stamping and card writing. 11:30am ish: Remeber that epic wall entrance from a previous post?
