January definitely started out easy breezy since it takes everyone a week or two to get back into the swing of emails and what not, so I took it slow, too. Then the last week and half came around and it went from 10 to 150… which seems to be a running theme around here.. but I did manage to capture some behind the scenes peeks at the shenanigans!
These DIY slang cakes are one of my favorite photo shoots from this month (the other’s you’ll see later this week and next!), and it’s always a blast having Monica in the studio with us. She’s one of those people I still pinch myself over the fact that I get to be friends with!
If you’re following along on Instagram and Snapchat, you know we just had a whirlwind weekend in Dallas for Create & Cultivate. It was so fun getting to meet a lot of other bloggers and longtime readers that I really admire and am thankful for.
Sometimes I feel like we get left out of a lot of things living in Houston because most creatives are in LA and NYC, so it was nice getting to see everyone in Texas!..
Not that I’ve ever written a behind the scenes lately post that didn’t start out with an explanation of how crazy things have been, but after a last-minute, whirlwind trip New York last week, and a weekend filled with the catching up, cold medicine, and prepping to go out of town again next week, it’s seriously been a doozy. See what I mean? Even my sentences are trying to run away from me.
We have a big video shoot going on today, which I’m equal parts terrified and excited for. It’s been a lot of coordinating details, but I love the satisfaction of having cool videos when the project is over. I have sort of been keeping up with Snapchat (and have found it kind of fun!), so be sure to follow along there for some down and dirty (okay, maybe dirty isn’t a good adjective for Snapchat) behind the scenes action too!
This weekend is my brother’s birthday, so we’re going to be taking a little break to celebrate him, and then we’re off to Boston next week for a fun chocolatier adventure with Lindt chocolates (we’re going to be working with them for all of 2016!), and for the Wayfair Conference I’ll be speaking at next Friday. If you’re hoping to snag a last minute ticket, I’ll be giving away a pair to a lucky follower over on Instagram today, so keep an eye out!
In the meantime, here are some scenes from last week…
Here we are again with another behind the scenes post, and can I just say that sometimes I wonder what people’s impression of Sugar & Cloth would be if the first post they read was a behind the scenes post? With the random crap I write about it could be anything from wearing the same dress 3 times in a week, to shooting on the floor, to Jared and I wanting to kill each other. It doesn’t really make for the greatest picture painted of us, but then again it could make our other posts look like such a great accomplishment achieved by insane people. It’s a toss up really.
In other news, we’ve been busy over here! I’ve also been slightly hopped up on allergy medicine, so that always makes the regular day-to-day a little more interesting, so this should be fun…
