local love: we [gather]ed with the skinny

local love: we [gather]ed with the skinny

a few weekends back, my niece and i went to a [gather] with the skinny event, and what an amazing time we had! some of you may not be familiar with 'the skinny,' so let me give you a little background on what they are about!

erin and peter, the husband and wife combo are the backbone to the skinny. erin is the mother + founder of the skinny and [GATHER], designer and operator, and her husband peter, the idea man and erin's resident sound board. the team also hangs out with diana, their community manager, and blogger of the amazing 204 park, chelsea, their engagement community manager for [gather] and last but not least, john, their shop worker.

so what is the skinny? they're a lifestyle brand simply put. starting out with their clothing line for the baby, the kid, the big kid, the grown up, and recently started [gather]; a hang out with you and your littles to connect, play and create. 

the [gather] event that my niece and i attended was a craft of dab and dot pillows. walking into the warehouse at vacancy hall, where the skinny is located was like a dream. snacks, wall hangings, a tattoo booth and a large table set up with all the tools we needed to make our pillows. i'll let the images do the rest of the talking here to walk you through the day. 

how amazing are these handmade magnets? the girls did an 'h' for our little boy hendrik that we are expecting at the beginning on may and 'j' of course for me. these are actually tiles from the amazing river city tile company. perfect or perfect? 

obviously we need to talk about how amazing these treats were! thanks to sweetness for the beautiful and delicious cookies and kb and company for the tastiest cake pops. can i have them delivered to my home? just kidding, sort of. 

sidenote, doesn't everyone LOVEPIZZA? we had some delivered to us and it tasted so good i forgot to snap a photo. oops.

another sidenote, check out jess from canned good photos to see the images she captured of the event and give some love, and yeg wood works was kind enough to do a giveaway of an amazing piece to hang artwork (not photographed)

where can you get this adorable hanging? little city market! swoon. 

and these amazing pieces, you can get your own from scarlet wren weavings. they are stunning!!! 

our masterpieces. olivia went for abstract and i kept mine minimal to put in little hendrik's nursery. what is so awesome about this event? it's not just a craft, it is truly an event. the skinny didn't miss a beat with their setup, design, treats and community. my niece was over the moon that her and her auntie were able to spend a special day together and able to come home with a memory to hold on to. be sure you check out their next event and get your tickets to participate. you will not regret it. thanks to the skinny for letting us [gather].

do it! ^ dale + peonies LOVES the skinny
