A Snowy Weekend in CT

January 25th, 2016 | Blog, Events

Connecticut lucked out this time and missed the brunt of Winter Storm Jonas. While southern states got hit much harder – and are still digging out today – we still had a white weekend
and enjoyed an excuse to stay in. Here’s a peek at what our weekends looked like:

After hosting our first Craft Night as part of Etsy Craft Party last month, it was such a success that we decided to host our second Craft Night at Elements last night. If you follow us on Instagram, you saw a sneak peek or two, but we wanted to share some more great images that we captured of all of the fun we had.

We invited some of our craftiest and most creative friends who brought their A-game! From painted and dip-dyed paper flowers to make-your-own prints (using Saran wrap!)…

Events :: International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago

March 11th, 2013 | Blog, Events

This past week, I was in Chicago for the International Home + Housewares show, the largest trade show for houseware products with over 60,000 exhibitors from around the world. This was my first time attending this show, and I have to tell you, it was overwhelming … but, in a good way! Here is an image of the show entrance. Please note the size and scale of the ginormous show banner hanging in the background as the flood of buyers and exhibitors excitedly enter the McCormick Place

It’s hard to believe we are already into September, isn’t it? We hope you enjoyed this nice, extended holiday weekend.

I did my best to squeeze in a few of my favorite end-of-summer favorites: Today I am again running in the New Haven RoadRace 20k , I managed this weekend to sneak in one final boat trip and enjoyed a romantic nighttime bonfire while watching the sunset over the water with my sweetie on the beach.
