Craft Night: Floral Design Class

Here are a few photos from our Floral Design Craft Night last week. It was so fun to host Studio Choo at our studio – they’re amazing! Each class started with introductions, and I shared a few ways that Bing image search can help with finding color inspiration. Then, Alethea and Jill taught the basics of flower care and how to build floral arrangements. After their lesson, each person got to choose their own flowers and start designing their own bouquets. The Studio Choo team wandered around and gave advice and instruction. I was super impressed with everyone’s creativity! Thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright for putting the evening together. We’ll be announcing more craft nights soon – so stayed tuned! (And make sure to join our mailing list to get early access to sign up!)

Andrea Pimental provided the snacks: s’mores pots de creme! (Get the recipe here.) I think I ate ten.

For the goodie bags, Poppies for Grace sent over a confetti balloons and sweetheart gift kits for everyone who attended. We had a few extra, so we used them as decorations.

Paper Generation gave everyone these awesome terrarium notecards. (Plus, she hand-wrote a message on each one!)

I love these mini pom pom flowers that ban.do sent over (fits the theme, don’t you think!?) And, Casey D. Sibley sent over a bunch of rad tea towels! See them all here.

Oh Happy Day Studio Sale

My crafting closet is bursting at the seams and I had to face the facts when the other day an employee pointed out (um, Jordan you’ve had this stuff for years and we never use it. ) I guess that means it is time for a studio sale! If you are in San Francisco stop by next Wednesday afternoon. We’re basically getting rid of all the rad stuff I’ve bought over the last few years plus lots of craft supplies (new and gently used) plus pinatas, vintage ephemera, disco balls, and other random stuff. Let’s do it!

Oh Happy Day + Pottery Barn Kids

For the past few months, we’ve been having so much fun creating DIY’s for the Pottery Barn Kids blog, Building Blocks. I’m really proud of all the projects we came up with, so I thought I’d share some of the final photos here too!  For Valentine’s Day, we designed an awesome template for Paper Heart Boxes that you can fill with treats instead of candy. I love that this Pop-Up Paper Alligator template can be used for party decorations or room decor. Our Jumping Jack Easter Bunnies have legs and arms that actually move! And finally we showed a sneak peek of my Kids’ Room. (And don’t forget to check out my favorite items from the Pottery Barn Kids spring collection!)
