Once again I got to feel like an artist for a night thanks to West Coast Creative. They put together a fantastic night once again for all us fellow bloggers. You can read about my first experience at their premier event over here.
This time we all gathered at 4Cats Kerrisdale. I managed to get a bit lost on the way out there, and was thankful there was plenty of parking on the street as I arrived a smidgen late. I missed out on seeing the sheep from Counting Sheep Coffee outside. Deland of Counting Sheep was there to tell us all about the coffee. I have done a review on it, be sure to check it out if you love your coffee but can’t have any past noon! Inside I could smell the amazing appetizers Milestones had prepared for us on location. I am now really looking forward to when Milestones opens up it’s newest location in Surrey. You honestly cannot go wrong with any of the appetizers, I highly recommend the wings or the pizza! We also got to hear from Sky of Mandala Sky. She makes beautiful clothing pieces, and we learned how she made her dreams come true of starting her own business.
Soon we were getting to work on our paintings. Simone of 4Cats guided us through all the steps to create our own Van Gogh inspired art piece. We went from a blank canvas to flowers in a vase in no time at all. I really loved the environment here, and was thrilled to learn there is a 4Cats location just up the road from my home. I’m keeping it in mind as a possible location for a birthday party when my daughter get’s older. They have a room that you can splatter paint in! Can you imagine? Little kids all in a room, wearing their smocks, and getting to just have at it with paint! That would have been my happy place when I was a kid. My piece of art is now sitting in our spare room, but I think it’s going to make it’s way onto my daughter’s bedroom walls.
The evening with West Coast Creative is always wonderful. I love getting together with fellow bloggers, many of whom have become good friends. I am already looking forward to the next event, and I know many bloggers who are also intrigued to know when the next event will be after having seen all my photos from the night on my instagram. Check out my friend Andria’s post about her experience at her first West Coast Creative night.
The ladies behind West Coast Creative spoiled us with an incredible gift bag too that we got to take home. It was filled with items from:
- Cloth Bag from Superstore
- Chalk Paint from Plaid
- Folk Art Paint from Plaid
- Mod Podge Furniture from Plaid
- Stencils from Royal Design Studio Stencils
- Party Supplies from Pick Your Plum
- Coffee from Counting Sheep Coffee
- Custom Designed T-Shirt from Mandala Sky
I’m considering stenciling my daughter’s wall with the gorgeous stencil I received, and I can’t wait to try the chalk paint. We were treated to lots of fun items, and I cannot thank the companies and West Coast Creative enough. Until the next event, I realized I need to take some time to do more art. Which is something I have always enjoyed. Thank you for bringing back my artistic side.
