block printing

Have you guys heard of Dabble? They put together super affordable classes that are 3 hours long at most and are hosted by different people/businesses all over town. It’s a great way to try something new and see if you like it, also a way to discover new places in your city and meet cool, like-minded people.

Anyone who knows me would guess that this is right up my alley seeing as I’m a professional dabbler, you name it and I’ve probably taken a class on it.

I took my first Dabble class this week, a block printing class hosted by One Strange Bird, the cutest little shop full of so many awesome handmade goods. Our teacher Nicole, was the perfect hostess and we all had a blast picking a design, carving our block and then printing on fabric. I’m pretty pleased with my design and think I may make a pillow or something with it, what do you guys think?

Oh, you know, a pretty picture just because. Also, when I see this image, it reminds me of having long hair and trying the whole bun with chopsticks look, I could never quite pull it off but it was fun to try.

I’ve been slowly collecting pictures and postcards to start an inspirational wall in my office and I’ve gotta say, putting it together is a lot harder than it looks. I keep putting things up and taking them down, rearranging, changing my mind. Phew, let’s just say inspiration can’t be forced.



Although I’ve been ignoring the rest of my house, one place I haven’t ignored is my office. I am completely addicted to office supplies. I own more post-it notes than I can count and don’t get me started on planners and calendars. So, mmmg is right up my alley, such cute, cute things!


The husband and I took a walk to our nearest Starbucks today and came across some sweet color action. These were taken with my iPhone and they turned out ok but I think I’m gonna bring my actual camera next time and take some more pictures. I am just obsessed with these bright hues!

I have mentioned my love/hate relationship with cooking before and when I found these charming and cheeky items by nourishing notes, well, let’s just say that I think I’ve found some inspiration to get back in the kitchen…
