The event was hosted by Sandee of Sandeegraphy, Toni of Perfumed Red Shoes, Jean of Life on a Flavored Runway, and Chinchin. I've never met any of them before. In fact, the only people I know are my blogger friends, Jane and Rose. But if there's one thing I've learned in my lifetime, it's to appreciate the beauty of doing things without waiting for anyone to push me and to be capable of making decisions on my own. Wehey! I sound so grown up right there!! ;)
The hosts sure picked the best place for our first ever Pen Meet! I fell in love with The Henry instantly. Like. Instantly!! No joke! Goodness, the place is filled with so much character. As you know, I'm an artist wannabe and I may not look and act like one but I do feel quite a strong connection with places like The Henry. It is truly Like No Other.
I know I'm supposed to blog about Pen Meet (sheesh, hehe!) but you'll be seeing lots of photos of the hotel here along with ooohss and aahhhs of visual goodness!
The event was at the second floor of the hotel, inside a room they call Space 40. The second floor lobby is a sight to behold, at least to me and mainly because of this beat bug. How cool is that?!
While I was looking inside Space 40, I couldn't help but silently tell myself.. Am I lost? I don't think I'm in the right place! The people around me were so insanely talented and skilled, while I was just a super artist wannabe! But I'm not usually someone who engages in negative self-talk, good thing! So I shook myself and said, just enjoy! And I did - with whatever talent or skill I have! Haha!
The event started with an introduction of everyone followed by sharing of artworks. I don't have any to share with them so I just watched and learned and tried my brush pens courtesy of Pens Galore.
Here's a quick tour around Space 40 plus the food! I came with an almost empty tummy. Food was really good by the way. Thanks to Rica's Cafe!
I snagged this pretty notebook during the event too! Because, notebooks! And you know what I become when I see pretty notebooks. Help, I can't stop hoarding.
