Hello, friends! I was so excited about the sunny weather we had today I couldn’t help but snap a few photos. I’m really enjoying our new kitchen, and I think Otto is too.
While out and about shopping for Valentine’s cards I was happy to see my lettering applied to a couple new cards this year! I can’t wait to send this sister card to one of my sisters, and I also love working on mono-weight scripts — this “hello” lettering was no exception. I hope you are making plans to celebrate with those you love!
Hello, friends! Normally I can’t believe a month has already gone by when I write these posts but this January felt like two months in one. This month we finished up our mini kitchen renovation, rang in the new year with new KC friends, survived a blizzard and freezing temps, celebrated my friend Alyissa’s birthday and hosted a family birthday part for my grandpa. Work wise was where most of the craziness came in, I started lots of exciting new projects and my friend Meredith and I saw our mural at Ability KC come to life (thanks to lots of Hallmark volunteers)! This month wasn’t a big shopping month as we finished the kitchen, but there was definitely lots of kitchen inspiration on the brain and we made some new recipes, too. Enjoy!
I absolutely love this Parisian kitchen! We have lots of hits of blue in our house, but this has me inspired to add in more lighter shades with the navy.
My friend Alyissa created Think.Make.Share.’s downloadable wallpapers, perfect for February!
Very tempted to also get an acrylic box to display my wedding shoes.
I finally found house numbers I’m obsessed with! Hoping to get these ordered and hung up soon.
A new twist on avocado toast (for me) that I loved this month.
I’m really hoping to take a stained glass workshop sometime this year and I’m saving this for inspiration.
A cute Valentine’s Day gift roundup!
Have you been entering to win the HGTV dream home?
I’ve been thinking about ways to reduce my plastic usage, and it’s exciting to see the end of single-use plastics in the EU!
Last week was super special as my friend Meredith and I saw the mural we have been working on since November come to life at Ability KC, a local organization that serves children with disabilities. Our fellow Hallmarkers volunteered to help us transfer and paint the 28 foot mural over four days (many of which participated through #My5Days!). Take a peek at the final mural design and time-lapse video below, I hope that the patients and staff at Ability KC enjoy this mural for many years to come!
A few blooms to brighten up this cold January. Enjoy!
