Monthly Playlist: January

Hey everyone!

I thought it would be fun to share with you a source of my daily inspiration in the form of music! Music has always been important in my life, along with playing a big role in my work. We spend a large part of the work day in the studio weaving and listening to music. Each month I will share some of my favorites, both new and old. This month's playlist is sort of a mish-mash of a bunch of different genres and artists, but all things I have loved lately. My hope is that some of you will find a new artist that inspires you the way that this music inspires me, and we can all spread a little love!  Enjoy!

Leave me any questions that you have in the comments. If there is a particular song or artist that you really like, let me know and I can try to guide you to other similar sounds!

Xx,

#VANSCUSTOMCULTURE

Hi friends!

So stoked to share with you my recent collaboration with Vans to support art education! I so strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to succeed in anything they are passionate about. Art programs nationwide have seen major budget cuts, and without support this means the end of a passion for some students. Vans Custom Culture helps to inspire and empower students in all of their artistic endeavors.

Thanks to Vans for letting me be a part of this awesome cause!

Before & After: Sunny's Room

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share a little look inside my almost 6 year old daughter's playful and very pink bedroom! She is a classic 6 year old girl through and through and her room is definitely a reflection of her sweet personality. 

BEFORE & AFTER

A majority of our belongings were in storage, including Sunny's toys when we were renovating our home in 2015. Her room was the first one we started working on because we wanted to get some of her toys moved in for her. Most of the updates needed in this room were cosmetic, just paint and floors. Right before the floors were installed, we started painting. She had been begging me to paint her room pink, and despite all of my attempts to pursuade her with white walls, she wouldn't let it go! So I went to Lowe's and picked out three different pinks that I thought were tolerable, because if it were up to her it would have been fuscia! We originally told her we would paint one wall pink, an accent wall, but as soon as she saw the paint going on the walls she was so excited and she begged me to paint all four walls. And who can say no to a super cute three year old?!

I tried to balance out the pink walls by using white accents and sticking to a blush and gold theme. I always joke that you can see the room glowing as you walk down the hall! I love how her closet has a lower rod that I can hang her outrageous collection of costumes and she can easily get to it. 

I tagged what I could, but if there is anything I left out, leave a comment! I hope you enjoy the photos of Sunny's whimsical room!
