Instagrammers We Love: Cest Maria

Marioly Vazquez is a stylist based in Mexico and has one of my favorite Instagram accounts. Besides the amazing pastel color scheme in her feed, her projects are original and fresh.  So, I was curious to find out where she gets her inspiration and how her style has evolved over time. Below, Maria answers 11 of our questions about her work…

Craft Night Recap: Make & Give

Last week we hosted 2 events at the Oh Happy Day studio for my friends Erin Jang and Steph Hung their new book Make & Give. The first was a Craft Night and the second was a Book Party! They were so fun and we had such a good time. Make & Give is full of super original ideas you won’t find on Pinterest. It is one of the best craft books out there right now and if you don’t have one get one! Click through below to see the whole event!

Make & Give Book Party

I’m so excited to announce we are hosting a book party in San Francisco for my friends Erin Jang and Steph Hung. Remember these craft classes I mentioned a few weeks ago?  Well, they sold out quickly but don’t worry – if you missed your chance to sign up for a class, you can still join us for the book party on Wednesday January 14th! Come meet Erin and Steph in our studio from 6-8pm.  There will be a brief presentation, Q+A with the authors, and a book signing.  The good folks from Folio Books will also be here with a fresh shipment of books for sale. There will be wine provided by Jamieson Ranch, light refreshments and a few crafty surprises.  Please click here to RSVP.  We hope you can make it!

Craft Night: Screenprinting

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 SmailWendy MacNaughtonAmanda 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.
