Crafternoon: To Live And DYE In LA
Two of my favorites things in life are cocktails and crafts. A few weeks ago I invite over a few of my fashion blogger friends (Sydne of Think Thru Fashion, Laurie of Laurie B Style and Kelly of Buss Buss) to join me for a little of both. We sipped spiked lemonade and pulled out the bottles of Rit Dye for an afternoon of colorful crafting.
Ombre is a very popular trend for Summer and Rit Dye has an amazing blog where they tell you step by step how to achieve the ombre effect. Click here for all the dye details.
Little did we know Laurie is the QUEEN dyeing, but it’s only because she’s had years of practice. Check out her youtube page and she’ll tell you why!
Thanks Laurie for the fun video!
Craft parties are a great way to spend quality time with your friends. Crafter and author Maura Madden has a great book dedicated entirely to crafternoons. The name of her book is actually called Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty With Your Friends All Year Long and it’s full of fun tips on getting artsy and crafty with your friends (obviously). I encourage all my readers to plan a summer crafternoon!
I had such a blast spending the afternoon with my friends. Thank you ladies for coming and playing with me! xoxo
