Do-It-Yourself design enthusiasts and curious crafters alike are invited to re-imagine, re-use and re-invent their creativity over Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 7-9, 2011, during the exclusive P.S.– I made this… at Waldorf Astoria Orlando experience, hosted by designer DIY expert Erica Domesek.

Domesek, the founder of the innovative DIY brand P.S.- I Made This… and website, is a current sensation in the designer DIY world, with projects featured in publications such as Glamour, InStyle, Self, Lucky, The Wall Street Journal and Teen Vogue, and appearances on the Nate Berkus show, Martha Stewart, NBC, E!, and CBS.

The weekend at Waldorf Astoria Orlando, with 498 guestrooms and suites, will commence on Oct. 7 with a “P.S.– I made this… cocktail” welcome reception and book signing with Domesek. Upon check-in, all guests will receive a complimentary copy of Domesek’s book, “P.S.– I Made This…,” which features more than 25 projects inspired by iconic fashion looks, runway trends and celebrated style mavens for readers to create for themselves.

During Friday night’s welcome reception, guests will have the opportunity to meet the P.S.– I made this… founder and enjoy make-your-own cocktails and hors d’oeurves artistically conceived and designed by the resort’s mixologists and chefs.

Following a relaxing afternoon poolside or at the Waldorf Astoria Spa by Guerlain, guests are invited to experience the weekend’s signature event, a “P.S.– I made this…at Waldorf Astoria Orlando” Crafter-noon Class led by Domesek.

With inspirational, vivid mood boards and clear, easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, Domesek’s unique design projects are tempting to anyone ready to dive into DIY.

In addition to Domesek’s appearance, the resort will feature a schedule of four hands-on “how to” sessions throughout the weekend, featuring various subject experts, including Waldorf Astoria staff.  One “how to” demonstration will feature a guest chef from Europe.
