d*s book tour: salt lake city event details!

Amy and I are so excited to head to Salt Lake City next month for a crafting event and book signing/celebration! Salt Lake is such a beautiful city, and I’m excited to spend more time there before we’re back again in January for the Alt Summit. We’re having two events in Salt Lake: a crafting class and a celebration/book signing. The details and RSVP information are below. Hope to see you there! xo, grace

Event: Craft/Book Signing/Celebration at Anthropologie
Date: Tuesday, November 8th, 2011
Time: 5–8pm (5–6pm craft workshop/6:30–8:00pm signing + celebration)
Location: Anthropologie (The Gateway, 116 South Rio Grande Street, Salt Lake City, UT)

Details: We will be teaching all craft-event participants how to make their own custom wooden wax seal! Craft guests will watch a demo, make their own wax seal and leave with the seal they made, along with sealing wax and stationery to test on. Afterward, we’ll get together for the larger celebration of the book launch, where you can buy copies of the book and have yours signed! Drinks and treats will be served. Proceeds from this event will benefit the local arts charity, Visual Art Institute.

We will also have a custom backdrop designed by Holly Fowler against which you can take photos with your friends and fellow guests!

RSVP: The crafting event is limited to 35 people, so please RSVP HERE soon ($10 per person for the craft event; your ticket is good for the signing/celebration, too). The main event will fill up quickly, so please RSVP HERE for that soon, as well.

    Janya, tickets are free for the signing, but it’s probably a good idea to rsvp.
