Thank you so much for all the support with the launch last week of my new company Bright Lab Lights! I started working on this almost two years ago with my brother and my friend. The last time I owned a business like this was my short-lived Etsy shop 7 years ago. Ha! It has been a really great challenge to do something I’ve never done before, I really love it. Before we head into the weekend I wanted to give some shoutouts to a few people who helped us.
First, Kendra Smoot and Alpha Smoot for styling and photographing the photos so perfectly for our website. They are both so talented and easy to work with. The photos came out better than I could have imagined.

When I am throwing an extra special party I love doing something extra special with the invitation. It really does make a difference in getting people excited for the party. I love the idea of putting invitations in boxes with a little sweet or surprise. The delivery can be a little more complicated than just dropping it in the mail (I usually hand deliver most of them) but I always get a really good response from invitations like these. For these we got the boxes here and used sixlets, I think they look so modern and cute. We taped the accordion invitation to the lid so that when you open it unfolds with the party details. Find the free-printable and more details below!

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.

Today I’m showing how I would style this Folding Bookcase three ways. This little bookcase is simple and modern so it can work in any room. I tried it in the kitchen, my bedroom, and the kids room and it looked great everywhere. I really like the Room Essentials line because the pieces are beautiful, really versatile and have excellent price points. When I’m styling a space I think about how it’s going to function and then put it together with art and objects that I love. Plants, Art and Lighting make the biggest difference! How do you style your home?
