We are so excited to head back to the West Coast for another event in California! I’ve never been to San Diego, so I’m excited to fly out for a craft event and book party at West Elm. If you’re in the area and want to join us for some craftyness and lots of book fun (including Smilebooth photos!), I hope you’ll come hang out! The RSVP details are below . . . see you in November! xo, grace

West Elm is hosting a huge sweepstakes with us! Enter here for a chance to win a $2,000 shopping spree and trip to NYC to shop with me and the D*S team!

Suggested For You


  • YAY! I was so bummed when I thought I wasn’t going to get see you on the book tour – everyone skips by SD because LA is “so close”. Can’t wait!

  • Wow, there’s already a wait list? But I’ve had this on my calendar for months! Hopefully I can come for “craft time”. Either way I’ll be there to get my book signed and hang out!

  • I thought there was a signing for San Diego on Nov 11th? If not then I’m so bummed because I won’t be able to return from a business trip in time to make it to the Nov 10th session. :(
