We had a blast at the studio celebrating the upcoming holiday season! We sipped and dived deeper into the yummy and artisanal world of craft coffee courtesy of our neighbor Cuvée Coffee Bar.
For this two hour workshop, we sampled four types ranging from fruit to chocolate flavors and paired them each with gourmet pastries from our other favorite neighbor, Chicon. Bourbon chocolate chip cookies anyone?
While we sipped, we gave ourselves an A+ for effort as we decked out our ornaments in an array of acrylic paints and gold-leaf and DIY'd our very own handpainted gift wrap.
The holidays brings out the creativity in everyone, and it was a blast to see what the girls dreamed up! We're already brainstorming next year's holiday workshop!
We were thrilled to host a Mavenly + Co. Masterclass, a two-day career workshop for creative women entrepreneurs.
The traveling workshop is led by two girl bosses from ATX and focuses on setting women up for success as they are either transition or navigate through different stages of their lives and/or careers.
Mavenly + Co developed a curriculum in collaboration with a team of higher education and positive psychology professionals to help us ladies thrive professional environments.
It all went down August 27-28 with a happy hour the night before at Eastside neighbor, Kitty Cohen's.
On the second day, we were lucky enough to enjoy a Q&A panel with some of Austin's most impressive women entrepreneurs, including Jane Ko (A Taste of Koko), Mica May (May Designs), Natalie Davis (Canoe) and Danielle Sobel (Juice Society). They dished on their backgrounds and how they created lives and careers with purpose.
I highly recommend digging deeper into the Mavenly and Co. platform. It offers resources and a community long after the workshop is over. We are always on the go, so it necessary and therapeutic to check in with your peers to not only seek advice, but to celebrate each other.
