Happy Monday everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. The end of last week and the beginning of this weekend was busy, busy in the Sew Creative household. On Thursday, Bean and I went to a Kids Cooking Camp hosted by the BC Blueberry Council. We learned how to make a bunch of kid friendly recipes using beautiful, BC Blueberries.
On Friday, Tara from Suburble and I hosted our 2nd West Coast Creative Co event. We hung out with 17 incredible Vancouver area lifestyle bloggers, at 4 Cats Kerrisdale and made Van Gogh inspired paintings together! We were introduced to some fabulous companies including Mandala Sky, Haywire Wine, Milestones, Plaid Crafts, Royal Design Studio, Pick Your Plum, Counting Sheep Coffee and Presidents Choice.
On Saturday morning I headed to the Vancouver Aquarium to get a media tour of the new aquarium expansion. They also treated us to a sampling of Ocean Wise canapes which were out of this world! Pan Seared Scallops in a bacon emulsion anyone? Yum!
The rest of the weekend was spent prepping for the BlogHer conference in San Jose! I leave tomorrow and am so excited to go. To keep track of my trip to California and get glimpses into all of the other fun stuff I’m up to follow Sew Creative on Instagram.
Do you know what the best part of Monday’s is? The Be Awesome Link Party of course! This week we are mixing things up a bit. Each week one of our fabulous hosts is going to pick out their favorite links from the week before and then all 8 bloggers will feature those picks on their site.
As a reminder, the fabulous Be Awesome co-hosts are: Angie of Echoes of Laughter, Virginia of Fynes Designs, Julie of Sober Julie, Me (Crystal of Sew Creative), Joanna of A Pretty Life in the Suburbs, Tara of Suburble, Stacey of This Lil Piglet and Shauna of Satori Design for Living. That’s a lot of bang for your link party buck.
This week’s features were chosen by Angie from Echoes of Laughter.
Check out these fabulous projects that Angie picked as her favorites from last week’s Be Awesome Link Party:
