DIY Monogram Scalloped Labels

Today we’re sharing our second custom project (see the first one here) from the Anthropologie Workshop Event! I fell in love with these Monogrammed Tumblers and decided they were a must on our tropical table spread. We thought they would serve as the perfect place settings with these monogrammed scalloped labels. Use the labels on your table or throw them around the tumbler and gift them off, either way, they are the perfect way to personalize the tumblers for the people you love most! They’d even make a wonderful gift–always love a monogram!

Featured illustrator: Helen Dealtry

This month we’re featuring artist and textile designer Helen Dealtry, who created our Lars Book Club poster and bookmark for The Secret Garden. With a focus on florals, Helen is one of my absolute favorite artists. Her works is unlike anyone else’s! And she’s done work for some of the best out there. She’s originally from the UK and got her BA in Textile and Fashion design from Winchester School of Art before heading to NYC for a job in a leading textile design studio. She teaches a limited number of floral painting classes (be on the lookout–they sell out fast!) and applies her work on scarves.

Becca’s Top 15 Projects

Becca's Top 15

Happy new year everyone! I’ll be sharing a year in review later this week, but I wanted to start with some news that still breaks my heart even though I’ve had a bit of time to come to terms. After almost 3 years, our dear designer, content editor, and confidant, Rebecca Hansen, left just right before the holidays. It’s still so tough to address and speak of because I cry nearly every time I think of it. In fact, it got so bad I couldn’t even say good-bye–I just said “see ya later,” which is how I normally like to leave things because good-byes are THE WORST and I never really think they’re final. In this case, she still lives close by so I may just show up on her doorstep every now again. Surprise!  Read on →

New Years Tabletop and Art Deco Crowns

New Years Tabletop

2019 is just around the corner (how?!?!!), and we’re busy preparing for my New Year festivities. If you’ve been here for any amount of time, it’s very likely you’ve spotted one of our tablescapes (we even have a whole series of them here!). I love finding unique dinnerware to add to my collection. I look for quality pieces that can be used for years to come and Lenox dinnerware has always been a favorite of mine. You can imagine how stoked I was to find that two of my favorites, Domino Magazine and Lenox, got together and made magic. As a long-time Domino lover, I will cheer on everything they do and their new collaboration is truly worth cheering over.

See how we were inspired by the collection to make some DIY Art Deco Crowns!

DIY origami lampshade

Origami lampshade from Paper Craft Home

I’m inspired by the clever work of UK based paper artist, Sarah Louise Matthews, and I was thrilled to find that she has released a paper craft book called, Paper Craft Home, which is available now! It features 25 projects to cut, fold, and shape. I already dog-eared the heck out of mine! It’s great for both beginners and advanced crafters so you can find a little something for everyone. Today she’s sharing a tutorial from the book, the origami lamp shade, which is actually similar in concept to a project from our book, Craft the Rainbow, with a different spin.

Strictly speaking, this lampshade isn’t origami, but it’s a great project to put your paper-folding skills to the test. Once you break the folding down into a step of valley folds followed by a step of mountain folds, it is fairly straightforward, and when mastered, you will be making bespoke lampshades for every room in the house!
