Re:Make 2013: That’s A Wrap! (Part 1 of 3)
It happened. We hosted our first Re:Make conference this past weekend in San Francisco… and it was awesome! For those of you who couldn’t “make” it, we thought we’d put together a recap of a few of our favorite moments from the event.
On day one, we had makers from all walks of creativity take the stage to discuss how digital innovations are revolutionizing the way we make. (Ahem… hence the phrase “Re:Make.”)
What else went down at Re:Make 2013? So glad you asked!
Obviously, there were photos. A LOT of photos. In fact, we had not just one, but two photo booths on site. Attendees got to take ridiculously awesome pictures in both a slow-motion photo booth and a Giggle & Riot photo booth, complete with Benefit Cosmetics props.
Beyond the lobster and free cocktails, there was also a lot more free food.
Guests created their own yummy breakfast treats at Brika’s DIY Donut Station and enjoyed mini cupcakes from Kara’s Cupcakes during cocktail hour. We don’t count calories at Re:Make. Just FYI.
It was so fun to watch everyone contribute to Velcro Brand’s Inspiration Alley during a project break. We kept this piece up during day two of Re:Make as well.
We even had a “projecting break” where everyone had a chance to make some Brit + Co. nail string wall art. It was so rad watching hundreds of women pick up a hammer. Rock on, ladies!
We watched a LEGO Artist create a site-specific piece out of hundreds of LEGOs. More on that later, but let’s just say, it was totally amazeballs!
Oh, and did we mention there were more GIANT BALLOONS from Studio Mucci?! These got Instagrammed like woah. #lovethem
No detail was overlooked. Even our electric sockets were washi taped!

If you lack a certain way with words, then perhaps you can rely on showing how you feel this holiday season with an artful greeting card you can make at home! Brit dropped by our crafting studio where we teamed with Camp by Walmart to create a choose-your-own-adventure holiday card tutorial. In the interactive video, it's up to you to decide what type of card you want to make — sentimental, or stylish? Three-dimensional, or keep it simple? After you've selected your design vibe, Brit helps you assemble it all together so your last-min card is ready to send. Get ready to pick up a few new DIY tricks when you watch the video now!
