Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Brisbane ABCD (Artists, Bloggers, Crafters & Designers) Meet-up at the Powerhouse. The meet-up was organised by the fabulous Kim of Udessi and Steph from Bondville. It was wonderful to meet so many creative and very talented people. Regetably I didn't get to talk to everyone so that will be my mission for next time.
Most people were able to drop a little something in the gift bag, which was so much fun to go through when I got home. Thanks for the kitkat Kim! So, given that I'm going on holidays for a week I thought it would be cool to share the links of some of the ABCD lovlies to satisfy your pretty-things cravings.
