Go Mighty Party & My Blog Crushes by Leslie Fandrich

Go Mighty asked me to photograph the Friday night Mini party that they hosted at ALT Summit with Red Envelope. What a fun party to shoot. Creative Bug made an incredible piece of pin art that spelled out the words "crush on you" and guests decorated hearts for their blog crushes. By the end of the night, the wall was covered with beautiful love notes for everyone's favorite bloggers.


I love to see a little love thrown around. Everyone in the room was smiling and it was such a great energy to experience. Check out the rest of the pictures on Flickr.

Here are a few of my blog crushes! I have met all these lovely people in person and they are just as wonderful in real life as they are on their blogs. I'm going to keep it simple and just link to them, go read for yourself and you'll see how amazing they are.

Do you have blog crushes? Have you told them lately? I encourage you to leave your blog crush a comment today or send them a tweet and let them know that you love the work they do. It might just make their day.

Speaking of love, you have two more days to order my Tinsel Heart print for Valentine's Day


"Happier at Home" Book Party & Giveaway by Leslie

I was honored to attend a book party for Gretchen Rubin's new book, Happier at Home. I've seen Gretchen speak twice and both times she inspires and gets me excited about living my best life. Her previous book, The Happiness Project, was filled with great advice, anecdotes and principals for being happier in your life. In her new book, she dives deeper and discusses what we can do in our homes to cultivate a sense of safety, inspiration and calmness. 

I'm so excited to share this great book with you that I've decided to give away the copy I received at the party! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me ONE thing that makes you happier at home, OR one thing you would like TO DO to be happier at home. Here's mine:

I am happier at home when I spend time on my screened porch reading in the hammock.

To be happier at home, I would like to tackle all the clutter in my studio and have a place for everything. 

I really look forward to hearing what everyone has to say! I'll leave comments open until Sunday, 6pm EST, do a random drawing and announce the winner of the book on Monday. Just one entry per person. In the meantime, here are more pictures.

Check out the full set of my pictures on Flickr, as well as Maggie's pictures.

The Go Mighty team of Maggie, Sarah, Laura and Amber have also posted about all the details!

Check out the gifts that were given to each guest.

The party guests were all beautiful, inspiring women.

There was lots of good stuff to Oooo and Ahhh over, including Laura's homemade pickles!

You can also enter to win a complete set of gifts!

Here's a picture that was taken by Sheri Silver of me at the party with my partner in crime Jill Vaughn from Terra Savvy. We had such a great time!

Most of all though? I'm looking forward to hearing what makes each of you happier at home.
