paper dahlias at indie wed

Every year after the holidaze and the madness, we count on Indie Wed for a boost of creative energy! I love me a creative  project and frankly I would participate in  Indie Wed for the opportunity to create and socialize with my friends in the industry, what an uber talented bunch! And so it started with a bright & fun color palette plus some old books... 538 cones later this is what we came up with :)

We shared a booth with Reenie Rose, who preserves  wedding bouquets via oil on canvas, pretty smart! So of course we used her talents to create our silhouettes!
We had a fantastic time meeting new couples  and visiting with friends. The event ran so smooth as always! Thank you Kelly for all of your hard work :) Take a look at these gorgeous shots from our oh so talented friend Amanda Megan Miller Photography .
This is Amanda's fab booth!
We,Unity Candle rocked it out!

A beautiful new addition this year... I hope they continue to do it! The Belles and Gents Lounge; organized by SQN Events put together with the help of Goose Island Catering, Truffle Truffle, Femme du Coupe, ShutterBooth, A LA Crate Vintage Rentals, and Courtney Callahan Paper.

So many creative minds under one roof my head was spinning with joy! and these are just a few, Pemberley Events, Nible Well, Mika Vaughan Makeup Artist, Life Made Pretty, Neil Dixon Smith, Five Grain Events, Fumme Gypsy Project, Mignonette Bridal, Penelope's Press, Olivia Leigh Photograpie, Simply Wood Rings, Naturally Yours Events, so many really not enough time or room! Oh wait Ravenswood Event Center how amazing was their food?! I need one of those lentil burgers for lunch everyday!!! and Puffs of Doom? What?! Yes!!! I'LL take a dozen please!

 All in all  you can't go wrong with this event, a perfect way to spend an afternoon...but be careful you might just come home and redo your entire house! the inspiration is just that good!
Here at the shop we are jumping right into Valentine's madness, so I'll just have to settle with recycling our paper dahlias into our tree, but what I really like to do is make a bedspread out of Amanda's backdrop! Come on now! it would be amazing!
See you next year!
