I took a break out of my typical work day to celebrate the launch of Amy Atlas‘s book, Sweet Designs, Thursday night at the Williams Sonoma in Chicago. I’ve been a fan of Amy’s for years now, and have already poured thru every page of her new book. After connecting with them over the years over facebook and twitter, it was such a pleasure to meet Amy and her “Commander in Sweets”, Lisa at the party. Lovely, warm, friendly ladies….a pleasure to spend the evening with.
I also met up with Jesse from Shop Sweet Lulu! The two of us enjoyed watching Amy discuss the design concepts behind the summer picnic table from her book, sampled her strawberry trifle, had her sign our books and chat with us about everything sweets.
Chicago was the first stop on Amy’s book tour. Take a look at the line-up below, and if she is headed to your area, I highly suggest reserving your spot to hear her speak. Amy and Lisa, it was a pleasure! Thank you for spending so much time with me, and I hope your next visit to the Windy City is a little bit dryer!
