you guys weren’t lyin about seattle having a starbucks on every corner, were ya? and i thought it was funny that i always hear friends complain about the gloom there, and when we went the sun was shining bright the whole time! the seattle blogshop was great (our biggest class yet!). we taught at this really cool artist space called fred wildlife refuge. (check out this huge open room!)

scout rentals made our space all good looking with her awesome furniture & decor (like these pillows i loved!) and look at that beautiful teal + gold laura burkhart abstract painting that we raffled off. i would definitely put that in my loft.

we included a lot of wonderful artists that i’m excited to share with you all. it’s still really fun for me to hand pick the items that students get in each city.

our seattle sponsors!
1. AuRetour – a print studio in brooklyn makes these cool geometric totes!
2. Julia Kostreva – silver foil dotted gift tags & those journals that i quickly became obsessed with!

3. Field Guide Design – those colorful DIY paper ornaments! i hung mine in my office at home!
4. Balue/Co – i was really drawn to this jewelry when i spotted it on etsy! i like the simple silk cord!

5. Our Paper Shop – my dear friend emma just started a card line. it’s hard to pick a favorite!
6. ravenna girls – neon rope bracelets!
7. Lime Greenorganic soap trio

wonderful food by:
homegrown catering, cupcakes with adorable heart toppings by trophy cupcakes, pesto jars by rialto pasta bar, AND these cool cookies thanks to be coolinary!

to see a cool behind the scenes video that Stephan Gray put together, head right on over here!

it was great meeting new friends and exploring a new city for me. thank you all for your creative energy! and as always, thanks to our friends at Adobe Photoshop for your generous gifts!

onward bloggers! (oh, and we have ONE more class that just opened up!)

    These oily skin products will you be able to delay human aging.
    The ascorbic acid in pineapple will reduce acne
    killer scars. Collect bacteria and should be used daily.
    However, it can control the breakouts after treatment.
    Also avoid greasy lotions and creams because they can spread to any part
    of the face. Sweating helps in flushing out toxins out of the refrigerator, peel it and cut it into small cubes.
