Happy Weekend!

Happy Thursday everyone! DC schools and the federal government are observing Veterans Day tomorrow, so I’m taking the opportunity to head out a bit early this week. Plus, I’ve been busy over at Common Room Studio getting ready for three big workshops this weekend! Jenna of Mon Voir is coming out to DC to celebrate her new book, Everyday Watercolor, and teach three of her floral watercolor workshops. If you’re local, we still have a couple spots in the class on Sunday morning – you can sign up right here! We’re also getting ready to announce some exciting workshops and events in December, so jump on our mailing list if you haven’t already! But in the meantime…

…a few links for your weekend!

Make handmade holiday cards for retired soldiers at the Old Soldiers Home/ Armed Forces Retirement home here in DC. I know I’ll be making some with my girls this weekend!

Have you seen all the amazing shoes in the Nordstrom fall sale??? These knee high leather boots are the perfect winter boot (and they’re 50% off!) and I love the side cut outs on these black leather booties (30% off!)

A Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade centerpiece! This would be so cute for a kids table design! (p.s. I’m also loving Brittany’s version)

How cute is this pink parka??

MAKE: Fettuccine with Avocado-Garlic Sauce (yum!)

I desperately want this pink chaise lounge for Common Room Studio!

Card of the week!

This is fascinating and horrifying: A toxic city on the edge of the world


This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:

Blush and gray desert-inspired wedding invitations

We went all the way to Brisbane, Australia to go Behind the Stationery with Fox & Fallow!

Add color to your wardrobe with vintage accessories!

One of my favorites from the DIY archives: DIY hand lettered dinner plates (perfect for holiday dinners!)


That’s it for me this week! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xoxo
