Homemakers, Show Us What You’re Reading!
Guys, it happened. Homemakers is here! DIY-ers everywhere finally have their copy of Homemakers in hand. If you haven’t yet snagged yours yet, we *highly* recommend doing so STAT. (Did we mention our rad gift with purchase program ends Monday?!)
Here at Brit HQ, we’ve done lots of celebrating this week. On Wednesday, we hosted a party for all of our SF peeps! (Shout out to everyone who came to hang!)
Hundreds of people poured into Brit + Co SF for a glass of bubbly and a chance to have their books signed by Brit. Partygoers also walked away with the ultimate DIY Starter Kit, thanks to our friends at Scotch.
Bonus: Our friends at Eventbrite came to celebrate too! They gave attendees a WAY too-good-to-be-true discount on the book. Co-founder Julia Hartz (one of our very favorite #girlbosses) was also there for a champagne toast!
Amidst all this celebrating, we want to thank Y-O-U. It’s you, our amazing B+C fangirls and guys who have made this week so special.
We’re not too proud to admit we’ve been glued to the #Homemakers hashtag on Instagram (+Twitter!) this week. Your book photos and DIY projects have warmed our hearts. We had to share a few of our favorites!
Already have your copy of #Homemakers, but haven’t shared yet? Oh, please do! We’ll be re-gramming/tweeting/sharing all of our favorites on Brit + Co (hey, you might find your Instagram in a post like this one). PLUS, we have a few extra DIY Starter Kits for a few select folks who show us their books :)
Fall is right around the corner, and we're getting amped up for our next session of Selfmade, Brit + Co's 10-week interactive startup school. Designed to help you create a new business or grow your existing one, this course is personally led by Brit + Co founder Brit Morin and co-founder Anjelika Temple, and supported by more than a dozen of the top female entrepreneurs, creatives, and investors in the country. Students receive personalized coaching on everything from how to get out of your comfort zone to how to scale your business, and everything in between. And now, thanks to Office Depot, even more of you can join the course!
