DWC at The Big Fake Wedding
DWC Creative made it's way into the wedding world! A few weeks ago, I participated in an awesome event called The Big Fake Wedding [previously mentioned in this post] in Denver. Please learn more about it on the BFW Website!
As a vendor, I provided paper accents and signage for the wedding. I hand-lettered watercolor bunting, chalkboard signs, watercolor signage, paper flags, and hand-lettered cards to decorate the venue! I had a blast working with all the vendors and meeting new people. It was a great experience and it definitely allowed me to branch out into new projects that I am really excited about! [I will update you soon!]
Check out these links below! To Etsy, the Ruffled Blog Feature, and to The Big Fake Wedding Vendor Guide that provides a list for everyone that participated in this awesome event!

I have to start by saying that Mud Whimsy was my favorite booth. I had to buy myself a hanging air plant!
She's got retro design and whimsical animal critters. What cute little ceramics!
I wanted everything from her booth!! Including her Puggle…
Her ceramics are available (Puggle not for sale) at www.mudwhimsy.etsy.com
MORE air plants, JELLY FISH air plants.

Frozen Dead Guy Days
So this will be the second year I have made it up to Nederland for this fun event called Frozen Dead Guy Days. An event that includes a Hearse parade, coffin races, a costume polar plunge, live music, and craft beer does not leave room to disappoint. This quirky little town can get down celebrating a guy preserved on ice!
If you're wondering why the heck there would be an event that almost sounds like it should be on Halloween in the middle of March, I'll give you the short run down (and let me know if I have this wrong. It seems like it's too crazy to be true). 1989, a Norwegian man brought his recently deceased grandfather, Bredo Morstølto, to the US to store him on dry ice in a California cryonics facility. 1993, he and his mother brought Bredo to Nederland, CO to keep him in their backyard shed on dry ice (where he still currently remains!?). And since 2002, the tiny town (population of 1,446 teeny tiny) becomes a huge weekend long celebration to pay homage to their unique resident.

This year, Kay brewed a collaboration beer with Jeff Green of Very Nice Brewing Company and they tapped the beer during FDGD. A Cherry Saison! It was delicious. They got to talk about on the radio with the guys from Colorado Craft Beer Show AM 760, so that was pretty cool! Hopefully we will hear the whole interview on their website soon.
Twisted Pine Brewing Company also participated in the coffin race for the first time this year, but were paired up with the 5 year reigning champions for the first heat so they didn't make it too far in the competition. My favorite team theme was The Cereal Killers, all dressed as cereal mascots (Tony the Tiger, Toucan Sam, Trix Rabbit, Captain Crunch, etc)!
Here are just a few more photos from FDGD, and some friends we ran into.
These last 2 images are candids I took of some free spirited ladies that were sitting next to us. That would be cool if anyone in Boulder/Nederland recognizes them so I could give them a print! It's always a bummer when you don't bring business cards…
