A Sweet Summer Pop-Up with Madewell!


I love it when big brands make it a point to embrace and work with local businesses — and I think Madewell does an amazing job of this with their local maker features! This past weekend, I had the pleasure of popping up at my local Denver Madewell store, hang with the girls in the shop, and showcase my cards and prints. I brought some of my favorite designs along to the event, including my latest summer additions.

Also, how cute are those outfits in the background?? I definitely didn't leave the event empty handed — especially loving this Hasta Luego graphic tee I picked up! Madewell usually hosts pop-ups around once a month, so be sure to check out stores in your area to meet some cool local makers!

This Saturday (July 28th!), I'll be at the New Belgium Summer Makers Market in Fort Collins — if you're in the area, swing by for beer, live music, and tons of local handmade goods!





A Fun Mother's Day Pop-Up at Wish Gifts Denver

Last weekend was a first for me! I was on-site at Wish Gifts to do some live lettering for Mother's Day shoppers, including gift tags and personalized gift items. Wish Gifts is one of my favorite local shops in Denver, so it was really a treat to do a pop-up event with them — they carry a huge selection of fun and eclectic items, and it's the perfect place to shop for just about anyone (including yourself!). 

It's so fun to see the unique things that people came up with and to hear some of the sweet stories behind the personal touches. In addition to offering cute personalized gift tags, I got a ton of fun custom requests from shoppers. My favorite was definitely lettering names and phrases on Corkcicles — especially the glittery stemless tumbler that said "Mommy's Sippy Cup"! (Also, how cool is that metallic pen??)

I've got some more exciting events coming up this summer, so be sure to sign up for studio updates if you want to know when they're coming up — if you're in the Denver area, I'd love to meet you in person!
