Decide to put together an afternoon of inspiration, creative fun and new connections with other SoCal bloggers?
You get the amazing SoCal Social!
Kicking off the days events was an amazing swag walk around the Old Towne Orange, CA circle. We paired off with new blogger friends and I was happy to meet and enjoy the walk with Anne from Bird/Like and Christy from Fudgeripple
Be sure to pop by and check out their blogs...sweet and fun stuff for sure!
As we walked from shop to shop Super Swag from all of the sponsors filled our bags and
was passed out in "trick or treat" style...actually just treat style...no tricks at all! We were greeted with enthusiasm by the store owners and it was alot of fun checking out all of the unique offerings along the way. So what'd we see during our shopping adventure?

After the swag walk are bags were bursting with so many goodies it was a bit unbelievable!
We then all met up at The Filling Station for a late lunch and ALOT more swag, giveaways, good conversation and some photo fun courtesy of Shutter Nonsense.
Oh, and the highlight of the lunch was meeting Mark Montano...crafting genius and all around awesome guy!
After a short Q and A with Mark he was generous enough to give each of us brand a new, hot off the press "Big Ass Craft Book 2" ..signed, sealed and delivered!" How cool is that!
And that wasn't all...before we called it a day we headed back to the Heavenly Hostess Shoppe for a Martini Happy Hour...complete with more giveaways and social fun!
Whew...what a day...super fab in every way 5 ★★★★★'s FOR SURE!
