can't wait for this event happening next tuesday, december 15th from 7-9 pm!! i met my friend margo through being involved with projectart some months ago + we instantly bonded over all things mindfulness. margo is a yoga instructor and the founder of #projectgoodness. we've been trying to do an event together for a while now, but finding a venue wasn't easy. then i met georgia, of lower east side vintage shop georgia nyc, over instagram -- she was wicked cool and totally down to host something. margo and i decided on a vision board workshop as a way to celebrate the new year approaching. i saw this quote recently that inspired the title of the event -- "it's only those who grow sideways that will change this world for the better," by david gillespie. so come make a vision board with us and let's see how we can grow sideways in 2016 :)
this will be my first ticketed event with proceeds going to projectart! tickets are $25 through eventbrite HERE -- all supplies are included + there will be free wine, courtesy of grapeful. georiga is offering a discount on really rad vintage clothes this night, and a percentage of sales will go to projectart too. also, thank you to my friend/amazing illustrator laura supnik for our lovely invite design.
