Round-up :: Easter Egg Designs

With Easter just a few short weeks away, I’ve been gathering ideas for celebrating the special day. I’ve been amazed at all the creativity and especially the beautiful Easter egg designs out there. From indigo dyed to hand drawn, I’ve rounded up a variety of beautifully designed eggs that you may just want to try yourself.

The Bloom Workshop California

The Bloom Workshop // Northern California 2015The Bloom Workshop discount code

Do you remember my Michaela who interned for me a few years ago? Her grandmother always told her to dream big and dream she did. Last year, Michaela and her friend Ashley launched The Bloom Workshop. And not surprisingly it’s been a huge success! The hands-on workshop was designed for creative women who are eager to learn about blogging, social media, photography, interior design and styling. Our goal is to share our knowledge on how each of these topics work together to help take blogs or businesses to the next level. Bloom’s mission is to help fuel women’s creative passions, establish authentic community, and help each attendee feel confident in their small business or blog. With special sessions on the specifics of blogging, social media best practices, design, styling and photography, a styled photo shoot to practice the skills guests just learned, and a Q&A session with a panel of experts this is a great opportunity for all eager to learn, network and hone creative skills.

Friday Finds :: 5 Favorites

It took me a couple days to get back into the swing of things around here. But we are back to our routine with the kids back at school and me back to work. Fortunately, I love what I do, so it wasn’t that hard to get motivated again. Speaking of motivating, I’ve rounded up five favorite articles and images I came across this week – had to share them with you!
