We love to craft at home.  I save every piece of tissue paper and wrapping paper imaginable and we use everything from popsicle sticks to paper plates for making art.  Recently I've also been printing photos from my iPhone and dslr on so we can make crafts with them - Lucia recently made a sweet collage using some pictures and lots and LOTS of glitter.  So when Jill told me about a special crafting event for grown-ups and kids at the Dwell Studio flagship in collaboration with HP printers there was no way I could turn it down. 

We headed to Soho and met with Christiane Lemieux, the talented designer and founder of Dwell Studio (I'm obsessed with everything there) who is also a mother of two, a few other moms and their kiddos.  We talked about creating fun projects using our photos printed with HP technology (we used the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer) and then we got to printing and making "fun stuff" as dubbed by my almost-three-year-old.  The best part for me was printing quality images quickly, efficiently and wirelessly from my iPhone.  The best part for Lucia was all of it - taking the photos, watching them print, and then using them to make a cool coaster for her dad and a fun canvas tote with an iron-on picture of herself and her two besties (her cousins).  I'm really looking forward to using the printer to make more things at home and also to print photos for framing and scrapbooking.

We instantly printed this sweet photobooth picture from the event and used it to make a fun coaster. 

WIN IT! We’re thrilled to offer one reader an HP® Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer that prints, scans, faxes, and copies, all in color or black-and-white, prints photographs in beautiful, sharp color at 600 dpi, and more (a $199 value).

She loved the wooden toys at Dwell and was particularly smitten with this pull train.
