oh hi.

En route to Craftcation I pit stopped in Ojai for total fangirl moments! This was only my second time ever driving from Northern to Southern California on my own and my first time taking the ‘back freeway’ to Ojai – what an adventure! I almost drove the whole way non-stop, except I saw a vista and stopped for a photo. ๐Ÿ™‚ When I finally made it to Ojai, I had three stops on my list (besides gas and a potty break!).

international women.

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. To celebrate, I participated in Zynga’s International Women’s Day festivities at their headquarters in San Francisco. They hosted a maker pop-up with women-owned businesses. Shout out to my friend Mimi of Hello Shiso for suggesting my business for the event! Here’s a before and after of my booth space. I brought all the flowers, pennants, and of course, Boss Lady wall hangings. We set up in the communal / cafeteria area, and Zynga provided all the tables and linens – made my crafty life so easy! Bonus: we got to partake in all the Zynga goodies! Bevvies, foods, and snacks! Mmm. But the stars of the event: these movers and shakers! I met so many wonderful ladies who make and curate wonderful goodies!
