summer vacation- see you next week!

by Grace Bonney

After the site relaunch, planning the book tour and shipping our very first newspaper*, it’s time for our annual summer vacation. Each year our team closes up their laptops for a week of computer-free fun and this year that week starts today. We’ll miss talking to all of you this week, but we’re gearing up for the launch of our very first book and book tour so we’re going to use this week to rest and get ready for all the excitement that September will bring. But before we head out I wanted to remind you that today we’ll be posting the book tour RSVP info for the following cities: Los Angeles (1pm EST), Vancouver (2pm EST) and Seattle (3pm EST). All of our book tour events have sold out within a few hours so far, so please stay tuned if you’d like to attend the craft event and/or celebration/signing in each city.

Before I sign off I just wanted to thank you all for your support this summer. We’ve been through some big changes and big projects and it’s been amazing to have all of your feedback (good and bad) and support throughout this year. I know the fall is going to fly by so I just wanted to take a moment now to say how much all of us here at Design*Sponge love getting to talk to each of you every day. We’re so excited to finally get to meet some of you in person this fall!

I hope you all have a fantastic week and a safe and happy holiday. We’ll see you next week! xo, grace

*We will be releasing a digital version of the paper after the holiday next week. Stay tuned…
