Storage doesn’t have to be strictly utilitarian, and it certainly doesn’t need to be unattractive - there are so many beautiful organizational items on the market right now! If you’re like me, January is a big month for getting my home in check, and I need it to be both functional and chic. Here I’ve gathered a few of the prettiest storage solutions to help you corral the clutter in style!
About six months ago I decided to take pottery lessons. I was in desperate need of a creative outlet that would not only physically prevent me from working, but one that would also occupy my mind so I wouldn’t think about it either. You see, I have a tendency to work - a lot. For the most part it’s incredible. I’ve been self employed for the majority of my adult life and absolutely love what I do. But what I’ve realized over the last few years (yeah, slow learner) is that I must set aside time to nurture my creativity. Like, actually write it in my calendar.

One of my goals last year was to launch the Style Sessions | Prop with a Pro™ workshops, and I’m happy to say they were a great success! From the enthusiasm of the attendees to the perfection of the venue, Elsie Green, I couldn’t have been more pleased with how these one-day styling workshops turned out. Our next Style Session will take place on Sunday April 14th, 2019 in California wine country - the perfect place for a girls getaway! If you’re excited to join us for the next one, we’re offering early bird pricing until Jan 15th. Click here reserve your space! In the meantime, here’s a recap of the experience and a teaser of what’s to come.

But there was always this small inner voice reminding me how I felt more of a connection with my blog readers through our shared interests and slower pace.
For years I’ve been making these tumbled, hand dyed gift tags and since I was running low on my supply, I thought I’d whip up a new batch and show you just how easy they are - and the surprisingly simple step that gives them their trademark worn textured look.
This season I was inspired to try a unique spin on traditional holiday gift wrapping by using warm muted tones and colors that could easily transition to other gifting needs throughout the year. Let’s get started!
