meeting holly becker at anthropologie

Hello everyone! I had such an unexpected treat last Wednesday evening. Anthropologie added one more visit to Holly Becker’s book-signing tour and it was right here in the Twin Cities. How exciting! Her book Decorate launched this past April. It is full of design ideas, great photos and bunches of quotes from top designers.

The evening began at 6:30 with a mood board presentation given by Holly Becker of Decor8 and to my surprise Leslie Shewring was assisting in the demonstration. Holly gave hints and tips on how we can all access the looks we are drawn to by collecting items we love and placing them on a board to get a feel for a certain room or project. This helps us keep our focus and enthusiasm for the project.

We then got to sample some lovely treats that were so pretty to look at and tasted even better…

It was lovely to take a few moments and be able to have a chat with Leslie of a Creative Mint. She is sweet, calm and down to earth. Anthropologie made such a festive setting for Holly to sign her books, there were so many unique things to look at while we waited.

It was a real treat to be able to have a few words with Holly face to face. She is encouraging. bubbly and enthusiastic. It is very apparent she loves what she is doing. Having taken the Blogging Your Way e-course this past spring, it was so much fun to meet these dear ladies face to face. They have vision and dedication, are gifted and warm. It was so much fun to spend the evening engaged in this event.
