Horray! It's time for our first Urban Craft Camp workshop of 2014. Come learn the art of Calligraphy with us. Just in time to make your own handmade Valentine's gifts and cards!

This is an Introductory Calligraphy class where you'll learn about the various tools used in calligraphy, basic strokes and technique, and the Copperplate font alphabet. We will focus on hand-dipping and marker techniques, with an overview of various fonts, styles and ink colors.

We are super excited to be partnering with The Library Shop to host this workshop. The Library Shop is a carefully curated one-stop shop for books, jewelry, children’s merchandise, gifts and art located inside the new San Diego Central Library.
Talented professional calligrapher and illustrator Wendy Ware will be leading our workshop. With over 16 years experience, Wendy has worked with some of Southern California's top event planners, stationery retailers and corporations to create invitations, logos and event design. Wendy hand calligraphies over forty different fonts. She lives in San Diego and we are proud to be partnering with another local creative to bring this workshop to you.

Space is limited so reserve your spot at the Urban Craft Camp site

Come Make + Mingle with us!


Book Binding Workshop at Pigment

Our Book Binding Workshop this fall was a great success with 32 attendees and a fun morning at Pigment, in North Park. 

We were lucky to have the talented Marcie of Red Star Ink leading the workshop, and partnerships with many local crafters and restaurants that made the experience extra special. The workshop covered the basics of book binding and all attendees made several handmade books and the skills needed to continue making their own at home. 

Looking forward to our next workshop coming up at the Library Shop on Feb 1st! You can stay up-to-date with Urban Craft Camp events at our site or via Facebook or Instagram.

Yellow Doors

There's nothing more cheerful than a bright yellow front door....

All Grown Up

Having mixed feelings about today! All three of my boys are in school today for the first time. Not quite sure how this happened so fast...

I'm so proud that they are all so independent and excited for school. They are kind to their friends and teachers, they love learning and are excited to share what they know with whoever will listen!

Not sure what I'm going to do with my life now that they're busy with their own, but I'll keep you posted. 

Off to bake some treats for after school so they'll tell me about their day!

Good Times in Santa Barbara

We're spending some time in Santa Barbara this week. Not too shabby. Having our first "glamping" experience. (No, I didn't make that word up) All the fun of camping without the mess. Let's just say it makes for a happier marriage in this family!

There's been lots of pool and beach time, a French festival, playing in the woods, and awesome food all around. We've got four days left so I'm expecting to be fully vacationed-out before we hit the road again.

It's good to get away.

School's Out

I love the last day of school! Epic water fights, friends, picnics and anticipation of a fun summer ahead. All three boys had a special day, and we all fell asleep early last night from pure exhaustion. 

We're hanging around the house this morning in recovery mode, and heading out to celebrate the first day off with a trip to the pool this afternoon. Here's to a great summer break!

Paris In Color

So excited to receive this package in a few days. My favorite photography blogger, Nichole of Little Brown Pen, has released a book of her beautiful Paris prints. You can find Paris in Color for a great price here. 

It's going to go straight to the coffee table for a long, long stay. Lovely.
