As I mentioned earlier this summer, I found myself without studio mates and instead of getting new ones, decided to make up the lost income by offering workshops in my big, beautiful space. Now shit’s changed and I’ve crossed over to the dark side of gainful employment and may have to give up this studio, but the event isn’t going anywhere anytime soon (well, it may literally go to another physical location in the new year, but it’s not going away-away). Luckily, Kansas City is full of badass, inspiring women, and for the third Creativity + Cocktails event, I’m thrilled to have my friend Bev Weidner of Bev Cooks (and now The freaking Food Network!) as the featured speaker.

Bev is pretty much the best. The first time I wrote her after I started all this festive shit, I thought she’d put me in her spam folder or call the police. Instead she invited me into her home and let me get her drunk (I mean, I think she got drunk… I did) while the entire Internet watched. AND she taught me how to use Instagram stories (you’re welcome?). So as you can imagine, I’m excited to get Bev, and myself, and you a little drunk at the next Creativity + Cocktails event on Wednesday, October 4.

After a moderated Q&A with Bev, we’ll chat about our own projects, brainstorm, and support each other in our creative and business endeavors. It will be part learning, part networking, part big-idea workshop, part cocktail party, and all sorts of women lifting up and inspiring other women.

Now, please keep in mind that I use the terms “creative” and “professional” very loosely. Don’t be scared off by them! If you make something, or want to make something, or make money at making something, or are trying to make money at making something, or have an idea of how you might like to make money making something someday, that all counts! Whether you’re looking for a little inspiration, have an idea that could use some feedback, or just want to spend an evening mingling and having a few drinks with some fabulous local females (sorry, dudes), this event series is for you! And it’s for me. As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m great at ideas and making pretty shit, but terrible at business things and money. (And after a few drinks I might even tell you about all the arguments my husband and I get into over money and how bad I am at it. And I want ALL THE ADVICE on having a full-time job and a toddler and a husband and two dogs and maintaining a fucking fun side hustle and maybe also not letting my house turn into a disgusting den of filth.)

Anyway, there are only 20 tickets available (and the first two both sold out in about one day) so get yours now and I’ll see you at my studio on October 4!
