I spent this week in California at Craftcation in Ventura, where I spoke on a panel and taught a workshop. I was hoping for sun and frolics but it was a little too moody for such frivolousness so I spent the majority of the time cooped up in doors with my winter tights and consequently getting sick. Beautiful. I’ll be talking more about the conference this week.

Then yesterday on the way back from the conference, I rode with Kelly of Studio DIY, Brittni of Paper and Stitch, and Kelly of Design Crush and I had the option of spending 6 hours at LAX before my flight or attending the release of Oh Joy‘s new collection with Land of Nod. Ummm, what would YOU have done? Yeah, me too. The party was held at Fig House in LA (above picture), designed by Emily Henderson and it was a kiddy dream come true. Sprinkles bedsheets, ice cream stuffed pillows, a bespoke bus. They killed it. AND, I got to meet a lot of people who I’ve been friends with online for years or reconnected with after awhile. It was a dreamy afternoon. LA just has it all!
