Origami Cornucopia

origami-cornucopia-

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I can always count on the same friends, family, and food being present. This is often the only time of the year when I get to see certain loved ones and consume the yummiest foods. Why oh why must we save all the apple and pumpkin goodies for such a short time? However, I do believe the traditional decor for Thanksgiving leaves a little (a lot?) to be desired. We decided to mix things up and create an origami cornucopia, which is something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. With a rainbow of fruits and vegetables to fill it, of course. After the paper crane costume we created for Halloween a few weeks ago, we went a little crazy over origami, and this is the fruits (literally HA!) of our labor! I LOVE how it turned out. The origami can be a bit time consuming, but it’s the perfect activity to do while watching those wonderfully cheesy Hallmark Holiday films. This rainbow origami cornucopia will put all those boring wicker ones to shame!

This week

Braid workshop, entrepreneurial series for women in Provo, UT

Hello friends! I’m a bit behind on life because of my Portland trip last week SO it’s a race against the clock getting some fun projects up for Monday and Tuesday. They are going to be good! Stay tuned!

Last night I had the opportunity to speak at Braid Workshop, a new series of workshops for women entrepreneurs here in Provo. This city rocks! They anticipate needs and get it done. A special shout out to Allison Lew, the brains behind the series. She’s worked so hard to get it up and running. I’ll be doing a recap on last night’s workshop on “How to turn your creative passion into a business” soon along with some more tips about the topic. What would you like to see from it? Any questions I can answer in particular?

Best of the web this week:

Loved seeing the pictures from Ace and Jig’s India travels. I’m a big fan of this beautiful clothing company and LOVED seeing the behind the scenes.
A friend just sent over this video of Colombian band, Monsieur Perine because she thought I would love the singer’s style. She nailed it. I’m in love with everything about her and the band.
Just discovered the work of Rainbow Kimono and wow! I’ll be talking more about it soon!
This is beautiful.
Looking for a creative/crafty job in San Francisco?
Mary-Kate and Ashely open up their first store in NYC! 
This is my new favorite dress. I wore it for a week straight. Sadly, I’m not exaggerating.
Love this new collaboration with Sugar and Cloth
What a beautiful picnic!

DIY Block Print Tulip Napkin

block print tulip napkins

by Corrie Beth Hogg of Apple of my DIY 

Spring is here and I couldn’t be happier! Weekly weekend trips to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, has me giddy with spring fever! I am particularly smitten with their tulip gardens, big swaths of color in every hue of the rainbow. In honor of those gardens and my love for the season, I decided to make some fun lino cut block print tulip napkins! If you’ve never made a block print before, this is an easy place to start. The shapes are simple to cut out and there is no set pattern that you need to stick to. Dress up your table with a classic nod to spring, using the incomparable stupendous tulip!

A personal update

Heart shaped cactusI was hoping to share a rad stop motion baby announcement with you next week, but in a sudden twist of plans, I’m sad to report that I was pregnant for 11 weeks and yesterday the baby decided it wasn’t the right time to make its appearance just yet. 🙁
