Peony Season

This time of year is my absolute favorite because my peony bushes are in full bloom! I also got the chance to participate in a very special #My5Days workshop arranging flowers so my house is filled with bouquets. I can’t wait to share more about that workshop at a later date, but for now I will be enjoying all the blooms.

August Around The Web

Happy Wednesday, friends! This August was pretty work-focused as my team had a big deadline for Mother's Day cards and Dale spent his month on a time-consuming rotation in his last year of medical school. We enjoyed a few lazy weekends at home in St. Louis, and I was lucky to have a visit from my mom last week. Dale and I also traveled to Ohio for our friends' wedding, which was the perfect way to end the month!

This month was full of inspiration around the web – my favorite discovery was the work of Tom Abbiss Smith. I have been really inspired by his abstract collages, and this is one of my favorites. I would love to order one of his prints! Here are a few of my other favorite finds:

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.
