  • I live in NYC and am a long time reader of your blog. It would have been cool to pop by that show you went to on Saturday night to say hello, but I had a family obligation. Hopefully on your next trip you can have a meet and greet or a workshop for your fans here! I can’t wait to see what you make now with all your inspiration!

  • Would you hurry up and have babies :). I can’t wait to see you and Jeremy as parents!

  • Thanks for taking the time to take photo with me at the Sucre show! I absolutely adore your blog and sucre ( Jeremy is quite tall–or maybe i’m just height challenged?!)

    also, i was so planning on trying to make it sucre show on saturday, but got sidetracked by a too-long ikea trip. glad ny was fun for you! xx

  • Fantastic shots of the city! Is that you with the wide brimmed hat on?? Adorable! I love! xoxo

  • Speaking of projects and to do lists, I have a little request…would you consider the topic of lists for a future post? I keep many project lists and to do lists, but sometimes I find myself constantly rewriting old project ideas/long term to do’s on my new lists and begin to think, am I ever going to do this?? How do you keep your projects/to-do’s from piling up? What thought process do you go through to decide what projects are worth doing, personally and professionally?

  • I would love to have that coffee sign in my home, it just looks so awesome!

  • Love the pics! And I love Brooklyn, particularly Williamsburg.

    Oh man, there is no better place in the states to get cheap manis and pedis than the good ole NYC… time to plan another trip!

  • SO pumped that you got to Roebling Tea Room during your first Brooklyn trip. Coincidentally, I ate there on my last night as a Brooklyn resident. Hope somebody got the mac & cheese!

  • Good to know you enjoyed your time in New York. I’ve been in Brooklyn for about 6 months now, and I love it. I get the option to visit Manhattan, but really love the chilled out feel in Brooklyn.

  • Oh My goodness! So awesome! Did you make the coffee look that way? Or did it come that way? It looks so cool!
