designers + artists + stylists
Today I’m excited to announce a new Craft Night happening at our studio on Tuesday, January 13! My friends Erin Jang & Steph Hung will be in town to celebrate their new AMAZING book Make & Give. We’ll be hosting a fun night where people can come and make some of the book crafts with Erin & Steph. In this class, you’ll make their Candy Capsule Necklaces and Tangram Prints. They’ll provide all of the supplies, but you can also bring more items (t-shirts, nice paper, etc.) to stamp on. You’ll also get a signed copy of their book! Click here to purchase tickets. We hope to see you there!
We held our second Screenprinting Event at the studio this past weekend and it was so much fun. I love these because everyone comes with a ton of stuff to print on and there is so much energy. At the beginning of each class, my friend Andy Kane from Sparka Screenprinting gave a short tutorial on how to use the screenprinter, and then we spent most of the time printing. Uniqlo provided everyone with a kids T-shirt, but we also printed on jackets, sweatshirts & onesies. There were 8 different designs (see them all here!) by Katy Smail, Wendy MacNaughton, Amanda Jane Jones, and Emily Isabella. If you’d like to attend an Oh Happy Day Craft event, there are still some spots available in our Woodworking classes next month!
My friend Rebecca planned this event and she did an awesome job. Our snacks came from Pop Nation. They make really fun popsicle flavors and serve them out of the coolest cart. We set it up on the sidewalk so people could take a break outside.

Gorman is an Australian brand that makes colorful and fun clothing. (If you follow my instagram then you know I’m a huge Gorman fan, they make all of my favorite dresses.) I was introduced to them last year and my husband jokes I should have a direct deposit to them because that’s where I spend all my money anyway. I love that their stuff is so different and they have great prints and cuts. They recently launched a line of homegoods and it’s so good I can’t believe it. How amazing is that eye plate? The shipping from Australia is totally fast and not too expensive. If you are shopping for clothes make sure you get the right size in Australian sizing (this sizing chart was accurate for me.) They also have amazing sales. I follow them on Facebook and Instagram and get great deals on their dresses.) Have you ever heard of Gorman?
This post is sponsored by Gorman. One of my favorite companies in the world.
I’m obsessed with flamingos. There’s something so magical about these pretty pink birds! Here are a few ways I’ve found to include more flamingos in my life. Which ones would you try? (PS -A Flamingo Baby Shower!)
When I found out I was designing the bathroom, I knew right away that I wanted to add floor-to-ceiling subway tile (with dark grout.) It makes the room feel clean and simple, but has such a powerful impact. Then, I knew I wanted to bring in lots of chrome details. There’s just something so fresh about chrome in the bathroom. I’m especially obsessed with these chrome lights I found on Lowe’s website! I love that you wouldn’t normally expect to find them over a bathroom mirror. Storage in the bathroom is a big deal for me, so I made sure to incorporate lots of baskets to for towels and toiletries. Finally, I added in pops of red through berry branches and bead garlands. Overall, the room was a success – and it makes me want to start renovating my new bathroom as soon as possible! Thanks again to Ashley Norton who helped me pull everything together on the day of the event.
Make sure you check out the photos and details about the bedroom I designed for Lowe’s here. Otherwise, if you’re interest in recreating this bathroom look, here are all the elements we picked up from Lowe’s:
