DIY Crepe Paper Flowers for Think.Make.Share.

Today on Think.Make.Share. you can learn how to make these beautiful crepe paper flowers! This was one of my favorite workshops to participate in, I loved how each person's flowers turned out so unique using the same steps. I plan on displaying mine in a vase, but I have also seen some beautiful paper flower cake toppers. Now I just need an occasion to bake a cake! I hope you're inspired to get making. 

AIGA KC Design Week: Juan Carlos Pagan

Tonight I was able to attend Juan Carlos Pagan's talk in KC for design week! I haven't been to an AIGA event in awhile and it was wonderful to get to spend an evening hearing about his work. JC is an art director, typographer, and designer who loves to manipulate letterforms to tell stories. His talk focused on doing things the hard way, and his passion for creating definitely comes through in his work. Thanks AIGA KC, and my friend Lila, for bringing another great speaker to KC! 

Here are a few of my favorite projects Juan Carlos shared during his talk:

Natural Beauty Picks

I have mentioned it a few times here on the blog, but I have gradually been replacing my beauty products with safer, more natural options. Today I decided it would be fun to gather up some of my favorite products I have been using, as well as a few I am planning on purchasing. All of the Honest Beauty products below are ones that I have purchased and loved! I have found that Beauty Counter is wonderful for eye shadow and blush ( I prefer powder blush, which Honest does not offer). The last few product are either on my wish list, or something I have just purchased! Both the body lotion and deodorant were recommended by Elsie of A Beautiful Mess. Their natural product round-ups have been keeping me inspired to branch out from some of the larger brands. I also would love to test out Beauty Counter's tinted moisturizer, I do like the one from Honest I have been using but am also open to other options. I am always curious what others love too, so if you have any recommendations please let me know!
