Toss flowers cut straight from the garden into a ball jar filled with water. Choose a color palette that contrasts or complements, textures that are bold and fluffy. Mix it up. Don’t be shy; gorgeousness will shine.

Thanks to a generous gift from Loop Events we’ve added some light hearted & rustic furnishings to our garden. Useful and cute, how can one resist?

Playshop Anyone? July 28, 2009

Lila B. hosted our first Playshop…yes — NO WORKshop — just a PLAYshop.

Armed with loads of potatoes, paints, brayers, rubber cement, fabric, and some creative courage we began with an artistic exercise. Afterloosening up and stirring up our creative spirit we began free-play hour for the decoration of our own inspiration book & tote bag.

 Wow, I’m still impressed with what everyone created collectively and individually. As you can see from the photos – we had some fun.

 If you’re interested in feeling like your 7 again, sharing some giggles, color, and or a stirring up your creative juices – let me know (Baylor@lilabdesign.com). We’ll be hosting more of these…and boy, they’re good for the soul.
