lots of crafty things in my near future. it’s june, and in magazine world, that’s when we celebrate christmas. just got in a vintage dough bowl’s worth of stuff from etsy for our kitchen gifts chapter. merry christmas!
I love this box that the new Roost catalog was wrapped up in. Very cool.
Some sweet Valentines from my co-wokers, plus a couple props that haven’t been put away yet, ended up becoming a cute vignette on my desk this morning.
The last few months Zack and I have been doing some pretty serious DIY in our little house. New wall colors, new dark wood floors, new color schemes…overall just going for something brighter and more sophisticated. The green walls were tormenting my very being and the blue-brown color combo of last decade + all the FREAKING BIRDS! GONE!!! With the market being the way it is, we’ve accepted the fact that we’ll probably be in our house through kiddo #1, so it’s time to bite the bullet and make it more up-t0-date!
We’ve got a lot of work behind us, but there’s still plenty more ahead. This weekend will mainly be hardwood installation, but I’m finally going to have my way with the study. It used to be Zack’s man room, but with us both being in there now, I want to give us a fun workspace where we can sit at our computers, get inspired, be creative, and laugh at people who still use the Curlz MT font.
Before and after photos soon, but here is my #1 inspiration for now: a chalkboard wall. I am obsessed with chalkboard surfaces. Oh the potential that it has…to be able to draw freely on the wall without repercussion! The other 3 walls will be gray, so the black wall with the white chalk should look really crisp and monochromatic. Our chairs are orange, so you can imagine how awesome that pop of color will be…

LOVE this iPhone camera app I just found called myFilm. I love the tilt-shift look; I think this does it better than the Tilt Shift Generator app.
I should have gotten 2 pairs of these because I know I’ll wear them out before I stop loving them. Great shoes + cuffed, dark skinny jeans is my favorite look.
Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of working with a lovely bride, Laura Ogard, and her equally lovely parents. Her style and my style were so compatible, so it was a snap to pull off a cupcake buffet for her wedding that was exactly like she pictured. Caleb Chancey, a great photographer and all-around good guy, did a beautiful job of capturing this wedding and was so sweet to let me use some of his photos for my blog. (Thanks CC!) And thank you so much to the Ogards for letting me part of this big day!
I can’t get enough of the vintage plant stand that they borrowed from a family friend. It took all my restraint to not take it with me! And the beautiful horse stables the reception was held in couldn’t be beat.
I love a bride who appreciates balancing traditional wedding cake flavors with fun flavors. In addition to classic vanilla and chocolate-chocolate, Laura also chose mint chocolate, strawberry, red velvet, s’mores, and caramel.
