Spring Break

March 23rd, 2015

Hi everyone. It’s late in the day but I wanted to pop in to say I’m taking this week off for Spring Break. I go offline every few months, it helps me recharge and avoid burn out. I’m here in Las Vegas catching some rays for a few days but I’m working too, just not online. I’m photographing the final prints for the spring fabric collection and it’s coming together so well, I’m excited to share the new patterns with you next week.

This quote resonates with me right now since it is takes bravery to present your original designs to the world. You’ve got to trust in yourself to express your personal style, and I’m a big believer in putting yourself out there come what may – creativity does take courage. And isn’t the world much more interesting with artists that do just that? I think so. :)

I’ll be back next week with much to share, see you then.

Weekend greetings! It’s the start of Spring Break for me so I’m headed to Las Vegas for a few days of play time and to work on little projects around the fixer house too. Today it’s a round of featured spaces and projects spied around the web in the regular Best of the Blogosphere series, enjoy!

Don’t miss Nicole Gibbon’s beautiful Brooklyn brownstone makeover. (Full house tour at Lonny.)

Oh cuteness. Make wallpaper animals (dino, whale, fox, etc.) with templates found at This Little Street. (Links to girlish versions too.)
