Today is a busy day in the studio after a burst pipe at home last night (we’re fine - see my DumbleTub highlight for context). 🙃 . I’m so excited for tonight’s Hands Occupied Studio Warming! It will run from 6-10 pm at 3323 W Diversey Ave. in Chicago. There will be drinks and snacks and everyone is invited to contribute to a community weaving project as our first creative act in #handsoccupiedstudio. All details are linked in bio. 🥰🥰🥰 . Speaking of the weaving, the giant loom came together nicely, and I’m so excited for what we’ll make together! I just unearthed some favorite yarn, fabric & ribbon scraps from my stash (including some ribbon from my own wedding backdrop). I think weaving something special together is such a sweet way to invite new friends into the space. ❤️💛💙 Can’t wait for tonight! 🧶🙌🏻
