Baum-kuchen Open Studio: A lovely afternoon with friends

18 Jun

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of co-hosting a really fun afternoon with some of the sweetest and funniest ladies. After the Inspiration Lab with Eunice, I had the idea to get together again and share what we’ve done with our Traveler’s Notebooks since the workshops. We had a really great group RSVP to join, and Wakako and I got to work planning the afternoon. She was kind enough to let us host the event at the Baum-kuchen Studio. {Thank you, Wakako!}

We chose to do an Analogue Swap during the Open Studio, and I don’t think it could have been any more fun! Everyone brought along two (or more!) items they love to use in their Traveler’s Notebooks and shared them with everyone else. We talked about what we have been doing with our notebooks lately, any struggles that we have with actually getting organized or putting pen to paper and about our other favorite tools that we enjoy using.

Wakako shared her take on the afternoon this week. So, be sure to check it out, too.*

Here are some shots that I snapped to share with you…DSC_6152{Wakako brought in some beautiful flowers that her daughter Satchi helped her gather for centerpieces} ๐Ÿ™‚

DSC_6149{Wakako made some light sangria to go with the yummy treats I picked up from Lemon Poppy Kitchen. Beth shared the little green bags with some really fun items inside for the Analogue Swap, and Jennifer gifted everyone pens from her latest trip abroad.}

DSC_6151{A few of the analogue items shared during the Open Studio: the mini Sojourner keychain is by Rowena, the beautifully wrapped package with a wax seal is from Eunice, and Jennie shared some items in lovely bags she painted with watercolor. If you look closely in the lower left-hand side of the image, you can see the end of my name in the hand-lettering that Wakako did for each of us at our place at her beautiful table.}


DSC_6159{Amy shared her seriously impressive pen collection with us. Needless to say, there were many questions and pen-envy!}

DSC_6171{A few of us stayed way past the end time and chatted for a while, shopped a bit… or a lot!, and shared more ideas. This is a shot of some of our TNs.}

It couldn’t have been a more enjoyable afternoon with all these wonderful ladies. Can’t wait until next time! xo
