  • Stripes

    This is Elise.

    An Ode to the Stripe. I wish I could channel Shel Silverstein or Dr. Suess right now and write you a little tale or poem about where stripes lead, or how we wonder about where stripes lead. Or about a little stripe who gets lost in a vast pattern on a vaster striped quilt and how he discovers his role in that world. Ooooorrr about a big ambiguous animal who is covered in stripes and all the other big ambiguous animals make fun of him for being different, but in the end his stripes make him famous... then all the other animals love him...wait...this is starting to sound like a Christmas song... No? Eh, no.

    Enjoy the stripes!

  • DIY Easter Eggs

    This is Katie.

    So here is a thought; skip the dye this year. I have decided (for this year only) that dying eggs is a creative cop out. Thaaaats right. We're goin eu natural with pops of black, white, and gold...my favorite. Break the mold with us. Not the shells. Just the mold...


    Supplies: 

    Brown and White Boiled Eggs

    Black Sharpie (try different sized tips!)

    Chalkboard Pen

    Gold FeltTip Pen

    Stamps

    StazOn Black Stamp Pad

    Now go nuts! Don't be shy! Do whatever feels fun and happy. I promise, even if you do not have a creative bone in your body (that you know of), you can still participate. Can you draw a straight line? Congrats...your egg is already better than mine (see top left egg below). Can you delicately tap the tip of a sharpie to the shell of an egg? Congrats...polka dots are my favorite! Can you create flipping cute and charismatic animal faces on a whim? Congrats...you are Elise. But really, that is the beauty of this DIY. Remember:

    "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is deciding which ones to keep." - Scott Adams

    Again, here are the four techniques...

    They really are adorable, aren't they?

    Happy Easter, Hunters!

  • White Out

    This is Elise.

    And I'm sure you know Kate by now. She is our unofficial, official model and creative consultant. Here we have her decked out in a couple of all-white looks. I love mixing white with beige, with cream, with swiss coffee... (paint color of room, but cream and swiss coffee is good too). We're all very glad this is a "thing" again, and can be translated into many different looks and feels. Dress it up, dress it down, dress it all around...as I always say...sometimes. Enjoy.

  • Speaking of Cacti...

    This is Us.

    Yeah, we're kind of in a cactus phase right now. Today I (Elise) got enlisted to paint some flowers for my mother's living room (See dead looking daisy).

    And I (Katie) discovered I can paint watercolor cacti. So I did just that. In bulk. It was great.

    I (Elise) followed suit, but added my own giant cotton-looking puffs onto my cacti. It was great. Add a little ice cream, and DAY MADE.
