Fly DIY Party at BlogHer13

Squee!!! The big day is here!! The day that Shannon and I have been planning for the past few months, many of which have been in secret!

It's FLY DIY Party Day at the Sheraton in Chicago!!

What can attendees expect? Well, aside from yummy food and delicious drinks, our party goers can expect a spacious suit with three different DIY stations where Bloggers can get hands on and take something home

First, there's a DIY wine glass station where you can decorate your own polycarbonate wine glass using glass markers, stencils and paints!

Second, there will be a business card holder DIY station with loads of DecoArt projects to test and try! These fabric business card holders have been handmade by Vanessa of Baily Belle exclusively for the #FlyDIY party!

Third, there's a collaborative mural station where bloggers can draw, paint, write notes of inspiration. This mural will be donated to a charity in Chicago as our way of saying thank you for hosting all of us for the weekend!

Come and join us after the Voices of the Year Reception from 9pm-12am and get crafty with your bad self!


BlogHer13 Anticipation

To say that I am excited is a complete understatement.


All of the above! And what is even more amazing is to have been spending the last few months with Shannon planning our DIY Party for Friday night at the Sheraton.

Our DIY Suite is going to be overflowing with creativity, color, fun finger foods and we are truly hoping that attendees leave with a sense of inspiration.

One element that Shannon and I were really excited about is the mural station.

Stencils, paints, markers and canvas. Bloggers will be able to draw and write inspirational messages on one huge mural, which will then be donated to a local charity.

Last year, Shannon and I left NYC thinking we should have done more to say thank you then came up with the mural concept as a way for BlogHer attendees to say thank you to the host city. We can leave a positive imprint, we can inspire and we can create. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to come together as a community, so why not!?


Pretty Fly for a DIY

So you may have read over on the BlogHer official Conference Page that there was a pretty awesome announcement yesterday.

Yep! You read that right. Ms. Shizz and I are hosting one of the official BlogHer parties this year, and we couldn't be more thrilled!

We have been incredibly busy over the past few months pulling decor, food, drink, and project ideas together to bring you a really interactive and fun environment. Over the net few weeks, we will reveal a little here and there, talking about the projects themselves and giving a few sneak peeks.

Stay tuned and start thinking about rainbows!
