Happy Friday! It’s the first full Spring weekend (since it officially started last Saturday @1:32 p.m. EST) and even though the weather’s reverting a bit to wintry in NYC I’m going to try to stay positive. These lovely orchids are from the beautiful L’Olivier Floral Atelieron 14th Street. I visited this week and was inspired by their beautiful arrangements and backyard garden.
So, here are some springy, crafty things to do this weekend if you’re in my area…
– Time Out New York lists this CRAFTernoon event with designer Janet Kim of the clothing line Graey and her friend Diana Huang teaching reverse applique with free cupcakes! (and a suggested donation benefiting The Father’s Heart Ministries)
– Daily Candy lists this pop-up indie craft fair in Soho and this perfume class with Le Labo Fragrances, the beautiful boutique that custom-mixes raw fragrances while you wait. The classes will benefit the Humanity Perfume Fountain Project, very cool.
– and when I googled Crafternoon I also found this site and blog from Maura Madden who does crafty events at The New York Public Library. I’m sorry I missed this one last weekend with felt designer Kata Golda since I’ve been admiring her work sold at Kate’s Paperie.
– And then googling all of that I found this Etsy Lab in Brooklyn where they have monthly Craft Meetings, wow!
So much to do…happy weekend 😉
