Not that having hosted only two workshops in my own studio makes me a seasoned veteran now or anything, but I have to say that flowers make for the prettiest photos hands down, so I’m super excited to share the Houston floral workshop recap with you! Yes, yes I realize it’s taken me way longer than I thought considering the class was a few weeks ago, but hey, life happens!
First things first, thanks so much for everyone that came to the class! I could seriously kiss all of you for showing up because it’s pretty terrifying putting yourself on the line to make a class happen when you never know if people will even care to come. Secondly, do flowers not making everything one hundred times prettier or what?! Fifty Flowers helped us out with all of the florals so that we could get all of the fan favorites even though Houston weather doesn’t really permit them, and Maria of Maxit Flower Design took it from there when it came to teaching the arrangements with tips and tricks along the way…
In case any of you have ever wished that the Apple Sticky Notes desktop app could magically transform into a real-life disposable desktop note taking system, your wish has been granted. I’ve teamed up with Scotch® Duct Tape to bring you a clever way to transform any plain desk into a note-takers paradise with this DIY chalkboard desk for quick and easy geometric notes using their new removable chalkboard tape.
Even better, you literally only need to supplies to make this project, and you can personalize it into whatever shapes you’d like: hearts, polka dots, letters, you name it! Oh, and the kids will have something to color on that isn’t the walls…
Alright, I’m back from West Texas and slowly getting back in touch with reality again. I figured after my “woe is me” posts lately I should reward you for sticking with me with dessert and bright colors! So, with the holidays coming up, it only means one thing..well two.. endless food and crafting. It’s basically what I live for every year. To combine my two loves, I made these DIY colorblock trivets to help you spice up the dining room table or kitchen to really solidify that you are, in fact, the hostess with the mostest.
You can make these little guys in whatever colors or shapes you’d like, all you need is a blank slate trivet and your trusty ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape…
In case you missed out on my recent mini styling sessions at the floral workshop last week, you’re in luck! Macy’s asked if I would show you all how I’d style the new Martha Stewart dining collections this Friday at the Memorial City, and Saturday at the Woodlands Macy’s locations from 1-3pm for free styling for Martha week in celebration of her new collections! I’ll also be available to give you one-on-one style consulting, plus you’ll have a chance to win an autographed copy of Martha’s One Pot book, sample a new recipe and shop the newest Martha Stewart Collections.
Of course I have to add my own little DIY touch too, so expect to see a little confetti, macarons, a touch of gold, and there may even be a few other surprises up my sleeve, so be sure to come by and say hello!
This event and announcement is made in partnership with Macy’s. Thank you for supporting the brands we love that allow us to keep bringing you bigger, better, and free content straight to your inbox.
