This week, I'm so nostalgic for Tulum its a little silly. It could have to do with the fact that its been cold and snowy here, and everything under the snow is still mostly dead and brown and crunchy. Its no secret that this time of the year is my least favorite. If I could, I'd follow summer all around the globe every year.
Luckily Etsy is full of awesome Mexican made and Mexican inspired things to bring the vacation back home!

Any of you going (or just returned from) somewhere warm for Spring Break?

I forgot how much fun I have making Styled rooms! It has been way too long. I've just caught up with my sewing goals and have finally had time to do it again. Hooray!
This week's post is inspired by the most gorgeous photograph taken by Jennifer Young. Check out her inspiring blog, I ART U, here. That amazing saturated shot of color against the landscape behind it in this image is just stunning. I think it would bring the perfect amount of energy to a workspace - just enough to get you through a tough project.

Well hi friends!
Let me start by apologizing for the very long time its been since I posted anything. I have all kinds of excuses, but I'll spare you. Except for this one - I won't spare you this:
Last week I was in Tulum, Mexico. It was so beautiful and warm and spontaneous. I desperately needed it. I can't wait to fill you in on that trip in more detail.
I also have some exciting news to share with you - I'm a featured seller on BRIKA!
I am so excited about this partnership. BRIKA is a beautifully curated site stocked full of gorgeous handmade items at special prices for a limited time. I've discovered some really fantastic sellers via BRIKA, and I'm honored to be among them.
BRIKA shot a video telling their story - its lovely. You can watch it here.
I have been one blessed woman when it comes to pillows lately. Lots have been selling in a few different channels, which is really exciting - and very validating. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes. I'm also itching to make new styles that I've had the ideas for in my head for weeks, and just not the time to produce them. Can't wait for that!
If you've been thinking about buying a Bright July pillow, now is the time. The limited time sale I am running with them will be up for another week, and then it will be gone. So head on over to BRIKA, folks!
Its good to be back.
