we heart tee & cakes
What a fabulous first Makerie Meetup we had at Tee & Cakes! Our venue couldn't have been more perfect and it was really wonderful to see some familiar faces and meet some fantastic new people too. There was some completely adorable crafting going on ~ lots of cute little flag garland, fabric flowers & even a bow tie cake by Alli (above) ~ all reusable (which we love). Tee & Cakes ~ the most generous host ~ made such delectable cupcakes and mini cakes to send home with everyone (which are SO yummy!) to go with their handmade treat toppers. On top of that, they gifted us their donation jar to go towards a Makerie scholarship for next year. How awesome is that? There was such a happy energy in the air & it was great fun to witness the lovely creativity in one room. I loved getting to talk to people in person. With much of our lives online, it always feels so nice to have a face to face conversation and give someone a real hug. We did get quite a few questions about next year and who the teachers will be. We're working on that & will be super excited to announce this in September. Stay tuned! : )
Thanks so much to everyone who came out last night to our meetup and to Tee & Cakes for being the most fabulous host! If you missed it, don't worry, we'll be planning more. Make sure you are signed up for our mailing list (here) so you can keep up with the latest happenings at the Makerie.
Have a happy weekend!
