Well folks, the time has come! We’re finally kicking off the 2015 events in the new studio and I’m super excited to be teaching our first home decor DIY workshop with my lovely friend Brittni Mehlhoff on March 28th!

We’ll be teaching you how to make five different home decor projects with some of our favorite brands like West Elm, Color Cord, and Decor Art to take home, plus we have a killer goodie bag with even more home decor pretties to help you freshen up for Spring! As always, there will be plenty of photo-ops, sweets, and even lunch will be on us (we had to make a day of it, you know!). You can buy your ticket right here!

While you grab a friend for that, Jared and I are currently headed to Florida to visit my family for a bit and I’m super relieved to have absolutely no plans for a week. I have lots planned for you around here though, don’t worry! Be sure to follow along on Instagram for daily happenings behind the scenes!

Houston Calligraphy Workshop Recap

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…

We’re Moving!


we're moving!

I really wanted to name this post “Bet you didn’t see this coming!”, but I decided to be a bit more straight to the point before any family members passed out over it…

I’ve never quite been a very go-with-the-flow type of person when it comes to major life changes, but if there’s ever been a time in my life that would convert me, it would be now. It may or may not also be followed by extra gray hairs, but the point here is really that there are exciting things to come.

When I first shared the news of the new Sugar & Cloth studio a few months ago  I was terrified, excited, and totally winging it. I feel like I could be a walking spokeswoman for the phrase “Fake it til’ you make it”. Now that I learned a few lessons the hard way and have a better understanding of what we really need to make a more permanent home for Sugar & Cloth, so we’re moving studios. This is partly due to some elements that are out of my control and partly due to my not wanting to settle for less than the best S&C can be (and bringing better content to you here).

So, with a quick little drive down the street and the help of lots of friends and family, we’re spending this week prepping the major parts of the new, much bigger studio space. I’m crossing my fingers that we can get our current things migrated to the new space by the end of the week. Of course we’ll still have a WHOLE lot of DIY’ing ahead of us to get everything just right and I’ll be sharing our progress along the way with you! You can see all of the photos from our current space and the new with #sugarandclothstudio!
