I almost always restrain myself from buying flowers on my weekly trip to Trader Joe’s but these tulips caught my eye. It wouldn’t really be Spring without some new blooms, would it?
Popping in today to share my finished weaving from a workshop with Haley Kellerman of B.Spoken Textiles! This quick weekend project was super relaxing and I can’t wait to get going on my next piece. I’m hoping to be able to spend a few of #My5Days this year in her intermediate class at Hallmark. Enjoy!
March has come to a close and I am fully ready to usher in warmer Spring weather, but not before recapping an eventful month! This month began with one last snowstorm the weekend we celebrated my friend Laura’s birthday, I traveled to Nashville to celebrate my cousin Liesel’s bachelorette & spent a few extra days there with my family, spent a siblings weekend in KC with Dale’s family, and had a crazy month at work filled with work on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas & Easter product! My favorite find this month was Victoria’s recap of her favorite interior paintings. The one below is entitled The Pink Room by Karen Kilimnik:
I found this roundup of wedding trends super interesting. Even though I’m already married I love staying up on the latest wedding decor for work!
Australia has never been at the top of my travel wish list, but Mackenzie’s recap may have added it to my always growing list.
Now that I know my neighborhood celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a big way these might have to be on the list to make for a parade party next year!
At the end of April we are headed to California! This guide has been helping us plan our road trip from San Francisco to LA
Last weekend Dale and I had a lovely dinner at the recently re-opened Ragazza! If you are in KC I would definitely recommend — especially the spaghetti and meatballs.
Still obsessed with Jamie’s photographs and her journey to motherhood is spectacular.
Not in the budget, but these earrings are bold and dramatic.
It’s Easter Egg season! I love when I get a chance to participate in workshops for Think.Make.Share. and decorating eggs this year was no exception. Head over to the blog to see all our ideas (and ideas from past years!). I hope you feel inspired to decorate your own eggs this season!
My last day in Nashville started with breakfast at Biscuit Love and then was spent shopping around The Gulch and 12 South! It felt great to have some sunny weather before heading back to rainy KC. I also think we may have seen almost every mural in all of Nashville. I’m so grateful I was able to have a mini spring break with my family!
This week I was able to spend a couple days in Nashville! The trip started with a few days celebrating my cousin’s bachelorette and then I met my family for a few days to explore the city. Some of our favorite stops were doughnuts from Five Daughters Bakery, live music at Tootsie’s and Honky Tonk Central on Broadway, lunch at Acme Farms + Kitchen, and a walk through Frist Art Museum. We also grabbed coffee at The Loading Dock, dinner at Whisky Kitchen and Bar Taco. We also stopped by the Country Music Hall of Fame! Here are a few of my favorite photos from our first day:
I’m so excited to share my friend Lila Symons’ talk from TypeCon2018! I was honored that she choose to talk about our collaboration on her font Fieldsmith as one of the #FontsMadeByWomen she has worked on during her time at Hallmark. I really am constantly inspired by the talented women I work with, including Lila!
