From the first launch of Blog Society, a core part of our mission when hosting events has always been to not only to enrich and educate bloggers but to nourish the inner creative in all of us. Taking time to craft, play and create often gets pushed down the priority list but every time I've hosted an event based solely around DIY or craft, the reaction is nothing less than amazing. Everyone walks away relaxed, happy and the mood feels lighter than when they entered.
So take that feeling and multiply it by ten and that's the vibe that happened at our most recent Unleash Creative Sydney event. I was grateful to team up with Magdalena Franco (who founded Unleash Creative) and our four craft mentors: Kirbee Lawler of Kirbeeart, Rin of Papered Thoughts, Alex Falkiner of Alfalky and Madeleine of Made by Mosey.
There was confetti, a photo booth, copious amounts of sugar, snacks and splashes of colour - it was everything you'd expect from a crafternoon and I absolutely can't wait to do it again. If you missed this event, I hope you can join us next time...
