Becoming interview: Ingrid Fetell Lee

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.
I’m pleased to share a new interview with professional joymaker and author of Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness, Ingrid Fetell Lee of Aesthetics of Joy. We read her book last month for @LarsBookClub, but the more I read the more I was intrigued with her as a person and how she became who she is now. Her focus on joy and color through the lens of design has led me to feel like I’ve found a kindred spirit! I find her answers so fascinating and I can’t wait for you to read it.

Becoming interview: Alana Jones-Mann

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.

I first met Alana Jones-Mann about 6 years ago at Alt Summit. She handed me her business card, which was a piece of foam resembling a real life piece of cake. It was the most charming thing I had ever received. And that’s all it took–I’ve forever an Alana Jones-Mann fan! Alana is the most clever maker of cakes and treats and her work oftentimes resembles real life objects like rugs, cacti, Christmas ornaments, you name it. In fact, she’s the one who kicked off the whole cactus cupcake trend. We loved them so much that she even came to Utah to do a workshop with us for our Cactus Coloring Book release party a few years ago and we partnered on a tutorial video! And now she’s done cakes for every rad company and celebrity under the sun. She’s the absolute best in every way and I’m thrilled we get to learn more from her today!  Read on →

Becoming: Tiffanie Turner

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.

You’ve probably seen the work of paper flower artist, Tiffanie Turner and gawked. Her work is extraordinary. It’s both incredibly life like yet utterly whimsical. I’ve had the fortune to follow Tiffanie’s work from the beginning and every single photo I see is jaw dropping, even now, years later. It’s all paper! We were even fortunate to host the San Francisco artist at a workshop at our studio here in Utah. Tiffanie is the author of The Fine Art of Paper Flowers, a tutorial based book on how to create her stunning masterpieces. She has a show at Eleanor Harwood Gallery called What Befell Us until June 15th. Go see it for yourself!

Becoming: Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore Co

This year we were inspired by Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming, our Book Club book for January, and we decided to focus on learning from women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming”. You can read the rest of the interviews here. Stay tuned for more each month.

This month I’m pleased to introduce you to creative director, Eva Jorgensen of Sycamore Co. Eva is become of my dearest friends since moving to Utah and she’s one of the very first people I “met” when I started blogging. Wet met in person at the very first Alt Summit in 2010. As we’ve gotten to know each other we’ve learned that we not only share a lot of the same interests, but we’ve led rather parallel lives in a lot of ways (oldest of 4, played tennis in high school, studied art, run our own businesses, want to move to France, and many more). I thought I knew it all, but today she’s sharing even more insight into her world. Her career trajectory has taken quite a turn in the last few years and it’s been so interesting watching from the sidelines as she pivots from running a stationery company to a full fled-fled creative services company and all the fears and then confidence that have resulted from it. I’m thrilled to introduce you to Eva!

This month I’m pleased to introduce you to designer and art director, Erin Jang of Indigo Bunting. You may not have realized it, but you have definitely seen her touch on publications like Martha Stewart (back in the day! I knew every page!), The New York Times, Color Factory and more. Her work is thoughtful and clever, cohesive and highly edited. I look to her work as a pinnacle of taste. On a more personal note, I’ve been lucky to meet her in person and she’s a genuine and kind individual who lifts everyone around her. A true breath of fresh air. I’m so glad to learn more from her today. Take notes, she’s got some great advice!
