China Recommendations

We’re going to China! Last month I was looking up airfare to random cities (like you do) and found tickets to China that were the same price as tickets to Hawaii. Paul’s brother and his family are living outside Shanghai and we’ve been looking for an excuse to go for a while now. We bought the tickets on the spot and now I’m planning a trip (with kids!) to China. If you’ve been I would love recommendations on places to go and what parts of the country to visit. I love remote and beautiful places (even if you have to travel a little farther off the beaten path.) Any suggestions appreciated!

Dot Wall DIY

Today I’m sharing how we made the giant dot mural in our studio. It is a really simple process to make, all we used was acrylic paints and giant sweet potatoes. I based it off of this project I made with potato dots from a few years ago. In our studio upstairs there is a big room with floor to ceiling windows. One wall we needed to leave blank for photoshoots but I wanted some sort of mural on the other wall. We want to have craft nights and classes (announcements coming soon!) and so it needed a little somethin’-somethin’ besides a blank wall. In the future I want it to always be changing and have different artists come paint it but for now we have our giant dot wall and we love it. The details for making your own are below.
