Today, I’m really excited to share with you a cool project I’ve been working on for the past few months! One of my friends, Chelsea Rose Moore, and I have started a creative workshop that’s debuting on January 25th. It’s a one-day retreat in DC with four sessions hosted by local artisans from the Northern Virginia area. tgpMLT2

Do you like working with your hands? Making your home beautiful? Entertaining and organizing pretty events? I think you might just like the Gathering Project. We have four amazing workshop hosts who will be teaching you about their favorite things and then help you make them! Bonus: You’ll get to take home something you make from each workshop!

During the event, you will learn to style a winter table with Rebecca Gallop of A Daily Something, make seasonal drinks with Rebekah Pizana, craft a winter wreath with Amy Showalter, and paint signage art and lettering with Erik LandstromJanHost5

We really want you to come to our first event. We are also providing breakfast and lunch during the day! From 8-4:30pm, you’ll be hanging out in an awesome DC loft (The Loft at 600 F), which is super chic and artsy. We also have a ton of amazing sponsors including (but not limited to)  Eric Nielsen of Mahogany Print Productions, LoCo Joe’s Coffee, ScrapCutsLily and Val, Knead and Know, June JarsKaufmann Mercantile, and Birch Fields Photography.

Some of these sponsors have even offered amazing things for us to give away so you won’t want to miss that!

Hey look, it’s me and Chelsea!

Sharpie Therapy / 6

7 Jan


In case you’ve missed past weeks of Sharpie Therapy and don’t know what I’m talking about, check out my introductory post here! This week I’ve drawn out some of my  favorite J.R.R. Tolkien quotes. His birthday was last week and he has sure said some incredible things! Which of his quotes are your favorite?



Weekend Recap / 8

6 Jan

Well Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It’s been a joyous season and I hope you’ve been able to have a few happy adventures as well. Thanks for giving me a little break on the blog. Bradley and I had a busy 2 weeks traveling to Indiana for Christmas and coming back just before the new year. We spent New Year’s Eve with Brooke and Levi, which was a ton of fun.

IMG_4840Thursday afternoon it started to snow and continued into the night.

IMG_4865 IMG_4904 IMG_4869 IMG_4866This is how I look when it snows. My husband can attest to the fact that when it snows I’m like a little girl who got all she ever wanted on Christmas morning.

IMG_4861Last night we watched the Colt’s game with one of Bradley’s friends. If you watched the game or heard about it, you know it was quite the emotional ride. I’m definitely a fan, but I’m not as much of a fan as these guys. 🙂

IMG_4919 IMG_4908Thank you Colts for pulling that win off. You made these two guys very happy!

What was your weekend like? Football, food or fitness?
