Design Sponge Craft & Book Party - Lowcountry Style

Last night Charleston had the supreme pleasure of welcoming Grace Bonney to town. Dwelling hosted the Design Sponge craft night and book signing party, and I was lucky enough to be in attendance and hang out with Miss Design Sponge herself. 

{Um, can we say absolutely adorable?  And she's as sweet as can be too.
Add her to my girl crush list!}

So as I was saying, the night started with a small crafting party. 


And here's a few of my lovely "craft-mates".

{Some ladies of Leapfrog PR who helped put on the whole shebang}

The craft du jour was making fabric paint stamps.  I decided to make mine a robot.


I made a onesie for our soon to be baby boy and also ended up doing a little bag for Lilly too!

There was still a little blue on the stamp when I did Lilly's robot, but I think it still turned out pretty cool.  Here's a peek at some of the other cute designs last night.

Such a fun night!  Beautiful space, lovely people, all to celebrate one talented blogger's success and new book!  Congrats Grace.

Yes... agree with the comments above that you are seriously the most fabulous pregnant lady ever... by the time I was as far along as you I had gained some major 'face weight'... anyways... love that you did a robot stamp. I bet Lilly loved it!

A robot! It's like an ode to my favorite halloween costume idea EVER. Wish I would have signed up in time for the craft event. Some of the pillows people made were AWESOME!
