My house is much like a person; in that it is filled with plenty of quirks and faults, but I am determined to love it regardless. That doesn’t mean that I can’t find ways to improve it however…and the simplest and most dramatic way that I’ve found to do that is with the magic of paint. After moving in last Spring, I started dreaming of two easy paint-related mini makeovers that I wanted to try.
As I mentioned yesterday, I went to an heirloom seed festival this weekend. I'd honestly never heard of such a thing before, so it was all a bit of a learning experience for me. There were pretty plants and old-timey shops (I bought the girls bonnets OF COURSE) and cinnamon rolls the size of your face.
One of my biggest goals on the site this year, as well as Kristina’s, was to expand the type of kitchen and food related content we offer. Kristina has posted over 300 delicious recipes on Design*Sponge so far, but we wanted to dig deeper and learn more about the people behind those recipes. From what their daily lives are like and what tools they swear by to what inspires them and the work they create, this year we’re adding a few new columns in the food section that are devoted to bringing you the same sort of practical information, tips and tools that our new design columns do. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to kick off a new series that celebrates cooking tools that chefs and bakers swear by- and tips for using them. Two of my favorite people (and bakers) in the whole world, Cheryl and Griff Day, are starting us off this week.

LA Went on a field trip to Kromar Printing today and learned about Offset Printing. My favorite part was seeing how books are made. And we got notepads + pens as gifts.
Oh, hey! After months and months and months...I'm back. We'll talk about that later, okay? In the meantime, let's give our friends Jerry and Greg a big round of applause for complaining on New Year's Day about how long it's been since I've posted anything. My long-neglected blog was immediately added to my list of 2014 resolutions. Also on the list?
