I’m back today with a little more love from my time at Engage!12 at The Breakers in Palm Beach… I can usually be seen sketching the incredible decor and details and love to share the results!
I had a little fun sketching some of the Engage!12 speakers…just a little. These each take about 2 minutes are meant to be pretty rough and whimsical… Here we have The Party Goddess, Cindy Novotny, Shira Savada and Mindy Weiss!
I’ve started a new tradition at each conference where I begin sketching an original pattern to see what evolves as the event does….This pattern evokes the immense vibrancy and spirit of the speakers, attendees and of course decor that greeted me at every turn!
And lastly, the iconic Sylvia Weinstock!
One simple statement is ringing in my ears from this particular experience. I furiously scribbled Cindy Novotny’s words into my sketchbook. “Faster, Higher, Stronger” After Friday’s events my interpretation of these words are a bit changed…I’m inspired to Forgive Faster, Rise Higher, and Love Stronger. Amen.
I had the opportunity to hear Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings speak at Engage09 last week. I was excited to learn that Darcy is a sought after illustrator and her book “Our Wedding Scrapbook” is filled with her original artwork! Here is a little excerpt:
“From America’s leading authority on weddings comes this beautifully illustrated scrapbook-a unique resource that makes it easy to create a personalized keepsake of the special moments, celebrations, and memories of their lives together. From first-date jitters to the engagement, from the wedding day through the honeymoon and anniversaries, the scrapbook helps a bride capture the defining moments of her wedding in personalized, creative ways.”
So I am thrilled to announce I am giving away one copy of this lovely scrapbook to a RiceInk reader!
