we just got back from one of our favorite cities. austin is so full of interesting spots. we dined at a couple of delicious places that you should check out if you’re visiting: elizabeth street cafe (look how cute the interior is), sway (new thai restaurant with community style tables) and gourdough’s doughnuts (food truck).
and check out our blogshop…
sometimes your workspace needs just a splash of movement and color, so we thought these garlands by le petite fest would perk up our student’s desk areas.
nannie inez is an amazing store and they gave these quirky little boy and girl notebooks by tokyo-based illustrator noritake.
all our goodies were held in these totes from magpie fields with just a hit of gradient that we hope expressed the sentiment of the class.
our friends at son of a sailor make these fun necklaces that they sent along for our austin blogshoppers.
these bright print coin purses are from basik855 (they make larger versions as ipad cases) and are great to throw in your purse or just carry as a teeny clutch.
ana from grown up shoes decked out our space with vintage furniture from loot vintage rentals and the high five factory made this awesome backdrop for our smilebooth. the students had a blast taking tons of pics together.
i think these rifle paper co. cats pajamas cards from amelia are just the best.
these adorable gift tags are made by locals satchel and sage. i think they would be perfect to label things. you know i’m serious about getting organized these days!
the byrd collective made these STUNNING florals, which i wish i could have brought home with me. she’s the gal to call in austin, folks!
we were so excited when we found out our pals at bkr were rolling out special valentine’s day bottles with hearts…right up my alley.
bake sale never ceases to impress, and of course there tasty treats were the talk of the shop.
we held our austin classes at vuka coop this time around, and it was such a creative space. perfect for our workshop, with space to learn, gather and share.
these inky co journals were perfect for note-taking. each student got two notebooks, and the one labeled sketches will be great to do some thumbnails for new blogshop skills.
check out these class pics, can we say tv show?
