It’s been a wild week over here (in a wild-at-our-desks kind of way). We had a mini photo shoot, and we also spent a whole lot of time working on The Compact Summer Camp (and starting to dream about how we’re going to bring that goodness to an internet near you). Better yet, Maddie and I leave this afternoon to attend a women’s retreat at the very same campsite (this one is focused more on fifty- to seventy-year-olds, so we’re pumped to be the babies). We’re going to come back full of ideas… and with our bags packed full of crafts and memories. Because this camp, we’re not working! So stay tuned on The Compact’s IG stories for lots of fun… once we get back to civilization and Wi-Fi.
In the meantime, one of our eager campers, who came and conquered on the first day of ticket sales is the lucky winner of this amazing gift bag filled with some of the APW staff’s favorite things! The gift bag includes: The Compact embroidered patch, Paddywax Amber + Smoke Candle, pink leather clutch from Minted, Off: Your Digital Detox for a Better Life by Tanya Goodin, You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life and You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero, White Marble Swell Bottle (17 oz), The Found Rumi Quote Enamel Pin, Last Craft Designs Beyoncé Candle. And that lucky winner is…. ANNE S.! Anne, we’ll be reaching out to you soon, and we’re so excited to see you at camp!
Have a great weekend. We’ll be thinking of you from the woods.
