Crafting + Beer + Food Truck + Awesome People = My idea of a perfect way to spend an evening.
The other night, Meg and I headed to the Eat | Drink | Stitch event hosted by the lovely Kristen from Hey Paul Studios.
And guys, I was in love. This event was the epitome of what I've been searching the past few years for--gals crafting the night away while sipping a delicious drink.
Kristen supplied cute fabric, quirky embroidery designs, and a rainbow of colored thread to choose from. It was then up to us to decide how we wanted to customize our designs.
I'm not usually too adventurous when it comes to beer. Give me a Miller Light, and I'm good. I have to say, though, that I did really like this beer.
While I did like their beer a lot, what really struck me was the name of the brewery. I'm a nerd at heart and wonder a lot about the universe, so their tag line, "Lighten up dark matter, have a craft beer" really stood out to me. So much so that I had to use my craft fair money to buy a t-shirt and a glass. (If you want to know more about the big rip theory, click here.)
Thank you, Kristen, for a wonderful night! It was inspiring to be around all these crafty ladies, and I love any reason to get to hang out with Meg more. In fact, it always boosts my creativity when I hang out with people who are doing such fun things around my city.
