Hello dear SISTERs!
Like every year the number of interesting events increases with the end of the year. This week SISTER Magazine participated in two very interesting but also very different activities.
After Thea had a wonderful afternoon at the Blogger Meetup with decor8 at Soho House, we of course subscribed to decor8′s Twitter account. Very lucky – otherwise we maybe wouldn’t have known and thus wouldn’t have taken part in the Gift Wrap Class with Anthropologie at Barcomi’s Deli.
At Barcomi’s Deli Anthropologie put up a Pop-up Store for the opening of their German online store. Exactly the right location: the Deli already has something of an Anthropologie Store. Hopefully the physical Anthropologie shops will follow soon because they are a happening in itself. I often go to the store at Regent Street / London for a quick inspiration visit, e.g. for Christmas decoration.
The event yesterday was perfect for the beginning Christmas time. Cosy with coffee and cake the very nice and creative Holly taught us how to create out of simple materials like cloth, paper bags, simple boxes with joy, creativity and colourful masking tape wonderful wrappings and gifts.
Holly’s advise not to handicraft alone but with friends is really good. In the group with 7 other girls the whole work was much more fun and a lot of ideas evolved while watching the others create their boxes and bags – and of course we got to know new friends: Julianne (frokenskicklig.com/), who creates the wonderful Fröken Skicklig dolls, Annie from Montreal, the two Ursulas: Ursula (cutelicious.info/), who makes very cute buttons at Cutelicious and Ursula who reads all our blogs, Anja (makingofeden.blogspot.com/), who offers as Eden very nice bird brooches and Anna (annasterntaler.blogspot.com/), the Social Media Queen from DaWanda :-)
I was really touched about all the positive feedback to SISTER Magazine. This means so much to us and gives us a lot of energy. If you have questions or remarks please comment below or tweet (@sister_mag).
A big thank you again to Holly, Cynthia Barcomi and Anthropologie for the wonderful afternoon.
