  18. Hi There, just wondering how ABCD got together and whether there is a site or anything like that, as i would love to get involved...

  19. Hi Kate! ABCD was an idea that Kim (from Udessi) and I had a few months ago to get everyone out from behind their computers and meet in a very casual social setting. Anyone who likes to craft/design/create art/blog about all the above is very welcome to attend. Kim and I will continue to post about new events on our sites, and I would be very happy to add you to our mailing list. Just send me your email stephbond at gmail dot com. Looking forward to meeting you at the next one!

  20. Hey Steph! Thanks to Holly Becker and her fab ecourse, as it would have taken me a lot longer to connect with your wonderful blog! Love the look and your content is great - I am a fabric fan and your Drool-worthy Design is genius! Will def get myself to the next ABCD!

  21. Hi Danielle - thank you so much! Would love to meet you at the next ABCD; will make sure that you are on the mailing list. If there is anyone else that would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact me at stephbond at gmail dot com.
