It’s been an eventful few weeks around here, and having the second round of sold out workshops with Laura Hooper Calligraphy over the weekend made for a pretty break in our long string of construction work from building out the new studio. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get things finished enough to have the class in the new Sugar & Cloth studio, but the lovely ladies that own the bakery and cafe below our new space also have a studio for events that they kindly let us use (thank goodness!!!), on the other side of the building and it turned out just as nice!

We had the same setup for the morning and afternoon class, and I loved every detail, but especially the florals from Jennifer Laura Design that really pulled the urban space together…

Alright, I’m back on the pumpkin bandwagon again with this pumpkin loaf cake recipe and I’m loving it! It’s the one time of the year where an abnormal amount of pumpkin consumption is socially acceptable so I’m going to run with it while I can. Also, I’d just like to say that since you can’t experience the home-baked smell and taste via the internet, be consoled by the fact that Jared made this bad boy look just as good it tasted. Then again, what doesn’t taste good with a whole tablespoon of butter on it?

See the full recipe right here, on the Minted blog!

Well today marks the day that we take our friendship to the next level, because I’m totally about to let my cat lover flag fly high. Not that it’s exactly been hidden all of these years, I mean, my cat Thomas was Mr. December last year for Kelly’s annual fundraising calendar (not to brag or anything). Plus let’s be honest, Taylor Swift is totally make cats cool again after that Diet Coke commercial, right?

Nonetheless, I decided to hop on the Feastivities train with loud and proud with a handmade gift idea for your fellow cat lover loved ones with this DIY cat trinket dish. This one’s for you, Mom! (she’s actually allergic to cats, I just thought that’d make her proud)…
