Get your DIY dancing boots ready my friends, because Ikea and Sugar & Cloth are teaming up to host five free (yes, free) back to school DIY events every Thursday night at 7pm for five weeks starting on July 25th! You’ll be able to come hang out with me and craft to your hearts content just in time to gear up for back to school!
Stay tuned every week to get the scoop on what we’ll be making each Thursday, how to RSVP (spots fill up fast!), and what goodies you’ll be taking home for attending. First up next week, I’ll be showing you how I like to mix and match patterns, customize your bedding, and you’ll get to create and take home your very own decorative pillows (you even have the chance of winning your own bed set from Ikea!). RSVP here!
If you’re not local, don’t worry! I’ll share all of the DIY projects and event photos here on the blog, and you can follow along with the hashtag #madeforschool.
July 25th and August 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd.
Aside from the number one question I always receive (which I mentioned here), people always ask me how I come up with ideas for projects, or things that inspire me. I can say without a doubt that adventuring to new shops, cities, and places inspires me more than anything else. I’m always intrigued by how things are displayed or used in new ways, and there is never any shortage of genius ideas behind little boutiques and local spots that are reinventing the creative wheel. To spread the wealth, I thought I’d start sharing my favorites with you here…
I’d like to introduce you to Sweet, the cutest, most drool-worthy bakery and coffee shop that you may ever step foot into. Not only does Sweet do sweet really well, but it definitely has bragging rights for the loveliest decor on the Houston macaron block, and trust me, I have been around the macaron block!
And just in case you want to take the treats (and cuteness) home with you, all of their goodies can come lovingly tucked into containers and boxes that could make any heart melt.
I had the strawberry and vanilla pots de creme… and maybe a macaron or two for the go, but I can neither confirm or deny that.
