The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of good luck and wonderful adventure. Through our Instagram account, a few weeks ago Monkeyhouse founding member Amelia O'Dowd shared the Southern Makers "Instaloop" contest with us. I entered then promptly forgot about it. Much to my surprise, while I was teaching in NYC two weekends ago, I got a message from Heather at Welle Studio in Montgomery, AL saying that we WON! Holy cow! According to the contest we won two tickets to Southern Makers that very next weekend plus a $1000 gift card. By the time you added in the gift bags, the package was worth around $1500!!! Turns out we won SO much more than that.
Southern Makers is hard to describe in just a few sentences. It's like the most wonderfully curated craft fair filled with some of the most generous and talented makers you'll ever find under one roof. We met so many truly incredible people and we look forward to introducing you to them! If you aren't following us on Instagram (@MonkeyhouseLovesMe) or Facebook, you should! We posted about our whole weekend and there are still many more images to come!
We were so honored to be treated like rockstars for the whole weekend and we are already scheming and planning ways to keep the Southern Makers experience going around Monkeyhouse.
There's so much going on around here, but we still want to hear from you! Tell us what you're doing to celebrate spring or what sort of making you've been doing!
Best-- Nicole and All your friends at Monkeyhouse
