Over on the Instagrams, I’ve been noticing fellow OKCers checking out the latest installation at the OKC MOA. Created by the (evidently amazing) Lisa Hoke, Come on Down is running through April 14th and is totally worth the visit. I can’t describe it any better than the Museum website, but suffice it to say it’s a giant sculpture of multicolored awesomeness created by everyday found objects. Pepsi cups? Yup. Lego boxes? Yup. Paper coffee cup lids? Yup. It was absolutely stunning, and the real thrill was to see how she created texture through these rather basic everyday finds.
Over ten years ago as a graphic design student, I dreamed of getting to work on certain kinds of projects. I realize now that I was envisioning my ideal client – creatives, people not afraid of color, bold thinkers – and working on Uptown Candy was one of those experiences. A sister store to Uptown Kids, Uptown Candy opened in November just in time for the holiday rush. And what a rush it was! Now two months later, the store still brings a smile to my face every time I go in . It’s totally my happy place! And I wanted to share it with you too. Continue Reading →
I’m partnering with Whole Foods and Etsy to bring you a fun-filled night of holiday inspiration. Join us next Tuesday night at Whole Foods Oklahoma City in Classen Curve at 6pm for all kinds of delicious holiday treats, and tons of fun gift wrapping ideas, DIY projects, and more! It’s totally free — make your holiday season merry with us! And! We’ll also be bringing along some Pencil Shavings Studio goodies for a mini pop-up, so if you missed us at the Holiday Pop-Up Shops, there’s still time to get gifts for Christmas!
I just realized that I completely forgot to post these last photos from our weekend at Carlton Landing. Which I am still obsessing over and lamenting that we do not live there in the lake house of my dreams.
Here’s a little-known fact: I am slightly obsessed/intrigued/whatever you want to call it with chickens. Not enough that I want you to start giving me chicken-related gifts at Christmas or that I want to actually have chickens in my backyard. No no no. But I do love sitting with my sister-in-law Chrysi and perusing the Instagram feeds of Simply Seleta and Kristin Rogers because they treat these chickens the same way I would’ve when I was a kid (read: dressing them up in outfits and pushing them in strollers). I cannot get enough. It is absolutely hilarious.
So. When we got to Carlton Landing, Jude was thrilled to see REAL(!) LIVE(!) ANIMALS(!) that we could get up close and personal with. In other words, we visited the chickens approximately 72 times in as many hours. But how could we resist when they lived in such a lovely abode?
