Winter Workshop: Minimalist Christmas Decor

Workshops combine two of my favorite things: creating and togetherness. Now add Christmas to the mix and I’m in my own personal heaven. I have a sneaking suspicion I’m not the only one who feels this way. Last week, Briana and I got together to do a simple shoot for the upcoming Winter Workshop. It was so much fun and surprisingly relaxing. I would like to thank Taylor Swift, decaf espresso, and the delicious leftover hazelnut coffee cake for making it a wonderful experience had by all.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you can expect at the upcoming workshop. (Scroll down for more info & a link to snag your seat!)

5 tips for the perfect host

Everyone has their own version of makeup. It may be a spotless house. Or maybe it’s a “my life is wonderful” face put on just before guests arrive. Makeup covers what we’d rather hide and enhances what we wish was better.

A Fall Wreath Tutorial

There is one fall tradition I’ve managed to hang on to every year without fail: making a fall wreath. Yesterday my sweet friend, Kacey, and I got together for some fall crafting. It was so relaxing and the perfect way to bring in the season.
