we arrived in D.C. for blogshop and I was immediately in love with the colorful trees and perfect temperature. apparently october was definitely the time to visit. the second day shifted and we were feeling pretty anxious about the hurricane rolling in. it was amazing to witness our class all coming together to help us get back to LA. looking up flights on our photoshop breaks, offering rides to other states…it was the sweetest. our flight was cancelled and we literally rushed to the airport to catch the last flight out for days that whitney booked for us while we were teaching. we owe her big time. i felt so worried about leaving everyone (even though everyone in class was so calm!) i am just so glad everyone is okay.
I felt really close to all those students, people really come together in moments like those, don’t they? i have been thinking a lot about everyone over on the east coast and hoping you are feeling warmth and neighborliness in this hectic time.
people have been emailing me asking to put together gift guides using our blogshop items. it makes me happy to think people find these links useful. we really only choose items we love and think you would love too…and to see a full list of all the blogshop items, they are on our new website!
3. we’re still spreading the minted mini art prints love.
and a big hug to marie tyler for helping us decorate that studio! funny story – when we arrived it was FULL of halloween decorations from a miscommunication with the space and it was a miracle that it looked like this before the students arrived. haha (hanging skulls, cobwebs, caution tape…it was not good)
see all of the student instagram action on our #blogshopDC hashtag.
and i just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful words about our new website! it has brought me to tears seeing the amount of signups in the last two days. it all feels a little bit surreal. and i hear a few of you have brought this PDF we made to your boss and convinced them to send you to blogshop? so cool.
