• Throwback Tuesday

    This is Katie.

    We are headed back to Tuscon this weekend for the Cultivate Tuscon Winter Market! And we are bringing Kate soooo....*roadtrip*.

    In celebration, we are pulling this fun lil post out of the archives to showcase some of our finds from the summer's market and in anticipation of CACTUS. So much cactus. If I see a cactus decorated for Christmas I am going to lose it.

  • Juicy Lil' DIY

    This is Elise. 

    The other day I had an itch to craft so I hiked down to Michael's and grabbed a few simple items. I keep seeing different variations of this oversized-cherry-earring-lewk and have been wanting to try it! Then I realized it would actually be pretty simple to make! 

    You only need 3 items from Michaels:

    • Green felt
    • Red pom poms
    • This set of earring supplies (it includes fish hook eye pins, fish hook earrings, and jump rings. All of which you'll use for this craft). It comes in different colored metal too!

    Tools you'll need:

    • Hot glue gun
    • Scissors
    • Small pliers

    How it works:

    • Start by folding the felt in half. This way, when you cut out your leaves you'll have two identical pieces! Cut out a pair of leaves with a thin connector in between them. 
    • Next, glue a red pompom to the end of the fish hook pin with the hook left open at the other end. Repeat to make a second. 
    • Finally, use a jump ring to connect the two red pompoms on their pins, the leaf, and the fish hook earring. 
    • Voila!

  • Create Dinners No. 9 - Live In Color

    This is Katie. 

    We take you back to a midsummer's night *before even the heat waves began* when 18 creatives gathered for the Create Dinners - Dinner No. 9. The theme for the evening was 50's picnic. Hair scarves, cat-eye sunglasses, summer dresses, and a dash of red lipstick set the tone for the night. 

    This group of women was especially endearing since it was privately attended by those closest to Kate's heart (and dare we say ours?). Music, a reading, drinks, questionnaires, and the most delicious food. TAKE ME BACK. 

    For this Dinner, I was the photographer and Elise did wardrobe styling! To learn more about the attendees follow @createdinners and check out our Instagram post!

    most importantly, love

    like it's the only thing you know how

    at the end of the day all of this

    means nothing

    this page

    where you're sitting

    your degree

    your job

    the money

    nothing event matters

    except love and human connection

    who you loved

    and how deeply you loved them

    how you touched the people around you

    and how much you gave them
