We know you love Design Sponge for its crafty, helpful tips and ideas, and you owe quite a bit of your home's cuteness to the website. But if you like to get a little more hands-on, Design Sponge hears that, and the team has created a book for your everyday reference (and coffee-table cuteness). Design Sponge is coming to Chicago next Tuesday, October 11 from 5 to 8 p.m., for two launch celebrations. The first is a crafting event where guests will create and take home their own customized wax seal. There is only room for 35 people at this first event, so make sure you RSVP right now to secure your spot. The second event is a launch celebration and book signing, where you'll get a chance to meet the brains behind Design Sponge and extend the gracious thanks you've been waiting to dole out. Anthropologie, 108 North State Street (at Randolph Street); 312-899-0969.
