Utterly Engaged’s New Year’s Party & Design Challenge

The Utterly Engaged New Year’s party / design challenge was held on a very rainy January weeknight all the way out in Anaheim.. but here we are today, warm, dry, calm and stoked to see Article 8 and the images from the Design Challenge. We didn’t place but we are pretty damn proud of what we pulled off! The challenge rules consisted of a $150 budget, and using fabric, paper, or an industrial material as your main focal point (not flowers). I brainstormed so many ideas but landed with what I thought would be the Freshest: Nautical Modern. I had SO MUCH FUN doing this, despite my time constraints, being away for the weekend, and being very sick. Oh man was I stressed! But in the end we prevailed…! I must thank my AWESOME partners for the challenge – Jenny Wei and Tuan Hua. Also Bunch’s mini fan group for the night… who braved the weather and traffic on a work night… you guys rock and I love the love. Thank you. :)
