This week

This week was a week playing catch up after lounging in the Palm Springs sun (and hiding in the rain) last week. BUT, I did have a great time crafting at a paper flower wreath workshop I did yesterday at Vintage Whites market. It was a bit chaotic but we had a great time crafting our hearts away and I'm absolutely stunned at what everyone created. Sadly, we didn't get a group photo but here's a little glimpse at the gorgeous creations everyone made. Aren't they beautiful?!

On that note, I'm thinking of doing more workshops around the country and I'd love to hear from you to know where I should go and if you know of venues or hosts that would be a good fit so speak up if you know the powers that be. One place I definitely want to get to is Portland for my birthday in June and Vancouver, Canada at some point. In my dreams I'm going to Australia and Tokyo...anyone want to take me there?

Come to Houston! It has fantastic museums and Paper Source at City Centre would be a really cool place to do a workshop! Or my dining room. Whatever :)
