The Final FlyDIY Giveaway

Yes folks, it's the final FlyDIY business card giveaway. We've got a little chevron, a little Aztec and a little abstract stripe action going on today, all in lovely bold Ink Effects colors.

We all know my love of chevron, and what I wasn't expecting was to love the Aztec pattern so very much. It turned out really beautifully and I certainly will be sad when it gets a new home with the winner of this giveaway!

 Isn't it pretty?!

 And both the chevron and stripes turned out really well too!

Now's your chance to be one of three winners!!

Another friday, another FlyDIY Giveaway! We are getting nautical with these two business card holder designs, and there will be TWO winners this time!

I love all things nautical. There is something really charming about the anchor and the rope. They fit together so perfectly.

So, which waves fit you?

The card holders are great and are perfect for slipping in your purse. Pop in your credit or debit card, some cash and business cards and you're all set to go!

Creating a Gorgeous Food Table for the Fly DIY Party at BlogHer'13

As you all know, Shizz and I go a little overboard when we are planning our parties {bridal showers and birthday parties}, so when it came down to selecting appetizers and signature drinks for the Fly DIY Party at BlogHer'13, we knew that it had to be outstanding.

Appetizers by the Sheraton Chicago will be fabulous. The selections on both their hot and cold menus are incredible, and we cannot wait to taste their creations! The food table will be adorned with custom made white painters pallettes, an amazing handmade backdrop, and food label cards on tiny little easels. Shizz has really taken this project and run with it, and we are thrilled with how everything is turning out with it!

The backdrop? Oh....I'm getting a little old school with my crafts

Picture a rainbow of paper chains! I'm really excited about this project and think that it is going to be one of the elements that pushes the party overboard.

We wanted the food table to be beautiful, but also to be something that our attendees will be able to recreate themselves. {ps: Scan the QR Codes at the party for tutorials on all of the projects!}.

Creating this party, for us, was about creating an inspiring atmosphere and representing the DIY community to the best of our ability. We will be keeping certain elements under wraps, but you can be rest assured that the space will be inviting, bright, cheery, and inspiring!


We've got Fly DIY, do you?

Shannon and I are busily prepping decor, finalizing budgets and selecting food for the Fly DIY Party at BlogHer13.

We've come up with two make-and-take stations and one collaborative project that we are both really excited about.

Last year, we went back to Boston and London and started talking about how as a blogging community, we swoop in on the host city, take in the experience, then go on our merry way. What do we leave behind? What is our mark?

When we first out our party plan together, we knew that we wanted to be able to do something to give back to the host city. What we came up with is a collaborative mural station where bloggers can write inspirational messages, draw pictures and leave their mark on a roll of canvas. The mural will be donated to local day care centre or Early Intervention program.

We really hope that you will join us in creating this mural. We will have supplies a plenty from fabric markers to acrylic paint writers, so make sure you come with your creativity on your sleeve and your imagination coming through your fingertips!


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!
