Are you a bride or member of a bridal party?  Still looking for great inspiration and or vendors for your special day?  Well then, Washingtonian's Bride & Groom Unveiled event is just what you need! You'll be able to view beautiful dresses from Kenneth Pool and even meet Amsale while speaking with other wedding vendors such as Haute Papier, so log onto Washingtonian now to get your tickets... and to a lucky reader of our blog, we've got a pair of free tickets (valued at $110!!)... So leave a comment by midnight on Friday mentioning your favorite wedding vendor in the DC area (and since we know Haute Papier's your favorite stationer, you have to pick a vendor in another category, he he) and we'll announce the winner on Tuesday.


Crafty Weekend Fun


For all the DC locals reading, I wanted to share the news that this weekend "Handmade Nation", Faythe Levine's much hyped short documentary on the resurgence of crafting and DIY in the US, will be playing at the Renwick Gallery on Saturday at 2pm.  The event is open to the public and from everything I've read, the film is a must see.  Sadly, I won't be able to make the free showing, but I'm happy the dvd released this month.  It can be purchased at buyolympia.com.  It's definitely going on my stocking stuffer wish list!
