The Makerie

The Makerie is a U.K. based paper design studio. I can't imagine how much time and patience it would take to make their creations. Check out more of their portfolio here.

New print!

We've been having a lot of fun arranging our new apartment. We finally started putting art on the walls which makes such a huge difference! I try to mix it up and not just have my own art on the walls which would be boring (for me) so we're incorporating a lot of artwork from our friends and local artists. I just bought a new print from Diana Sudyka, one of my faves. Her work is so whimsical and fun and I like how inspired she is by the natural world. I know birds (especially owls) are everywhere but I couldn't resist this guy:

School Supplies

Buying school supplies was my favorite part of going back to school. I don't get to buy fresh supplies each August like I used to but I still have a thing for notebooks, pens, folders, etc. I've seen a new company named Poppin on a few blogs recently and it looks pretty awesome. Modern, colorful, office supplies that aren't too expensive (at first glance).

Weekend in California

Los Angeles lemons! From Molly and Sean's tree.

We just got back from a lovely, sunny weekend in L.A. and Santa Monica! We went for Katie + Bob's baby shower, it was a shame we couldn't stay longer but we had some wonderful times visiting with old friends:)

love is in the air

Last weekend was the first of three weddings we're going to in the next month and this weekend we're flying to L.A. for a baby shower- lots to celebrate these days! I feel so lucky that we can share these milestones with our close friends.
Started getting my studio set up this week finally, I am so excited to have more space to spread out and to have a great excuse to get everything organized!

Mail time!

After spending most of my day dealing with Comcast, this was a nice surprise. I absolutely love getting things in the mail- so this was a special treat all the way from South Africa!  My new pencil case and pillow from Skinny LaMinx:
