The Swags Out of the Bag {The Crafty Social: Fall 2013}

This past weekend we gathered, we took photo booth photos, we created, and we made friends.
The Crafty Social was such an amazing experience from start to finish for Sara and myself.
It's safe to say that we were taken aback by all the vendors who said yes to donating to our swag bags.
Being our first event and so close to the holidays were didn't know how it would go, but wow people were so very generous.  
This post is photo and link heavy but is worth it in the end, just think of it as a holiday shopping guide.

Kori at Paper and Pigtails, yes you have seen her name umpteen times on this blog, what can I say I kinda REALLY heart her something fierce, sent us 5x7 copies of her amazing watercolor prints. 

Need a great gift for your girlfriends or teachers maybe, Piper Polish would be perfect!
These glittery polishes add the perfect amount of sparkle to your hands.

 Its safe to say I LOVE everything Ashley Brooke Designs comes out with.  Her items are the prefect mix of sass and girlie.  So when we were told that she was donating her mugs, and said mugs came with our favorite sayin, um we were SUPER STOKED.

Chrissie Grace Art sent us a beautiful 8x10 piece of art work.  I love Chrissie's use of different textiles in her art and vibrant colors.  A great place for unique gifts for sure.

 I loved the tiny charms Houndstooth and Nail sent for each of the attendees.  The shop is filled with beautiful pieces. I want to add a few things to my Christmas List.

I loved that we got such a mix of products.  And the hair was not left out with Shimoshi Hair Fragrance, the perfect way to give your day three no wash hair a little spritz of freshness, come on we have all been there.  And some hair bling by the uber talented Sunshine and Carousels, I mean serious talk people check out her beautiful creations, from everyday to wedding day Erin has you covered.

I keep seeing Kidecals popping up in my social media circle, and I have been smitten.  It was so amazing of them to join in on our swag and send us keyboard decals.  They are SO cute, I know a few people that will be getting some VERY soon.

Not going to lie, it pays to have amazingly talented friends to call on.  Lindsay from Pen and Paint is one of them.  She came through like I knew she would, sending 10 mini notecard packs, 5 of each of the design shown.  The perfect little topper for a gift.  And add the Twine from The Twinery and your packages will be pop!

The ladies over at Bleue Boutique were so sweet and donated these beautiful studs.  Check out Bleue, its the best way to shop, flash sales every thursday night.

And last but not least we needed something to house all these goodies and Culture Flock Clothing sent over the perfectly perfect crafty themed totes. 

Not pictured unfortunately, adorable mini holiday bunting from  Everyday Party Mag.

Like I said at the tip top of this post, we were overwhelmed by the generosity of these vendors. 
So please visit them, shop and spread the love.
