AT THE MOMENT | EB LEATHERWORKS + HIBRID WORKSHOP

June 8, 2016

hibrid-ebleatherworks-workshop-1

 

I’m sure you all have seen me post about this lovely lady here, Miss Emily Bordner of EB Leatherworks during the past few months and some of the Alana Hadid x Lou and Grey Collection that included 5 Points x EB Leatherworks leather wrap clutch. I was also extremely honored to be able to hand-letter personalizations for some of the clutches as well!

We’re excited to be at it again together, and this time, in Kansas City…for a workshop! We will be at Boulevardia, Saturday, June 18, from 5-7 p.m. hosting a custom keychain workshop. For just $5, you will get a leather keychain to put together from Emily, and then have your monogram hand lettered on it by me! Both of us will also have products there for you to purchase as well if you’d like AND we will also have a surprise collaboration piece that will be available there as well! So look for us in the Maker’s Market and come get your perfect mix of leather and letters!

Also, if anyone wants to drink beer AND volunteer, Boulevardia is currently seeking volunteers! You get free tickets to the event, and free stuff! Visit here to become a volunteer: Boulevardia Volunteer Registration

PAPER & PATTERN | RECENT INSPIRATION

June 1, 2016

I’ve been loving a lot of bold, flat pattern design lately. Full of contrasting colors, flat shapes, and  brushy textures. Black, white, royal/neon blue, peach, and touches of soft pink are still winning me over as well. The playfulness and simplicity of these is what I love most about them. They are child like in ways with their color and irregularness, but executed on point!

INSPIRATION | SKYSCAPES FROM GIRL MEETS COAST

May 23, 2016

I’ve been ready for summer and nice weather for months now I feel like. Coincidentally, I came across Kate of Girl Meets Coast in the #candyminimal hashtag on Instagram, and it could not have come at a better time.

Kate is a photographer who frequently travels the Central California Coast documenting her journey beautifully with colorful gradations of relaxing hues. Her colorful take on the landscape has never made these seashore shots, towering palms, and sandy beaches look so good!

Do any of you have that one, or maybe few things that you have an addiction to and ALWAYS buy no matter many of them you have?! I’m a sucker for cacti, coffee cups, notebooks, and planters! Since we love these little addictions so much, why don’t we celebrate them?!
