A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to illustrate live at one of the many stores that Vera Bradley has. The store where I illustrated is located in Orlando, FL. inside one of the most popular malls; The Florida Mall. I had the pleasure to attend one of the events they had at another location, and I learned so much about the brand. Before the event I visited the store and Jacquelyn the store manager shared with me so much information and facts about the company.
Many fellow bloggers, friends and family members came to visit me. I’m not gonna lie but I was little nervous. As soon as I sketched my first model, I was able to relax a little and get ready for a fun day.
The awesome team from the store created this cute set up for customers, and included the giveaway, products and some snacks.
This was the giveaway! An adventure key necklace, fine point pen set and a sticky note set.

Thank you also to Vera Bradley for giving me the opportunity and I can’t wait to be part of another great event.
