These plates are all vintage findings that have been giving a new life with the addition of animal illustrations. They can be used at the table or as decorative pieces. I love the split giraffe and would definitely hang him on my wall!

Find these and more over at Yvonne Ellen’s etsy shop.

I Made This: Yarn Wallhanging

Yarn Wallhanging DIY | Moss Points North

I would say that my usual decorating M.O. is to have every wall covered with either artwork or furniture against it. I am not super comfortable with empty space. So when the wall between my closet and my bathroom was blank for over a year it was definitely starting to bug me. The bed corner comes close to the wall and so any furniture or shelving option was out of the picture since it is a small relatively high trafficked ‘hallway’.

When I came across the DIY project for these yarn wallhangings on the creativebug blog I knew I had to make one! I was able to use supplies and yarn that I had around the house and I even used up a few skeins of yarn. It was a fun therapeutic project that I completed in an afternoon while I caught up on some America’s Got Talent {no shame!}. The trickiest part is the trimming to get the shape you want. I ended up here with a bit of an off-kiltered chevron and I decided to let it sit for awhile to see how I like it. I figured less is more since you can’t add length back on! Maybe someday I’ll trim some more, we shall see.

2 // I have a few friends with new babies and right now I’m loving the blankets and accessories found in Juniper Wilde’s shop. They look so soft and the patterns are great!

3 // I don’t remember how I came across this image for what seems to be an architecture concept (or a real building… sometimes I think it’s hard to tell!) but I love the colors and the shapes!

4 // And to round things out, Beard Buddy is an adorable shop for all things beard related!

Want: Bramble Workshop

Bramble Workshop | Moss Points North

Attention world! I have figured out what I want in life. I want to be Jessica Pezalla from Bramble Workshop! She is an event styling and store display lady and I am in love with her work.

I am having a mini career crisis at the moment and am trying to figure out which direction to head in. I have always had ideas of careers I think I would like in my head but have never truly tried to take action to make them happen.

Right now, Anthropologie window display designer sounds like the ultimate business card title and it has for awhile. So how do I make that happen? More school? Do cool stuff to get noticed? Work crappy jobs while I develop my artistic style? Who knows! Ideas are definitely welcomed.

Black Carl Promo Videos

Ok, its time to brag a bit. My incredibly talented videographer boyfriend just released several video promos for a local band and I just had to share!

The band, Black Carl, is headed out on tour starting next week and David worked with them at the beginning of the year to shoot and edit these promo videos of them preparing in the studio and doing community events around town promoting their PHX HAS SOL message. If you’re Phoenix local, help them kick off their tour next Friday at the Sail Inn or if you’re around the nation check to see if they’re coming near you! Oh, and give them some YouTube lovin’ as well.

A Taste of Phoenix Art at The Clarendon Hotel

Artel Phoenix at The Clarendon Hotel | Moss Points North

This past weekend The Clarendon Hotel hosted an art installation event titled Artel Phx. They put a call out for area artists to set up installations and artwork throughout the hotel. Several rooms had exhibits along with live dance numbers and other art scattered around the space.

My main interest at the exhibit was one put on by Epic FX. This laser installation was projected down a long hallway and consisted of different laser beams and sound effects triggered simultaneously but always randomly to create a truly unique live experience for all the guests.

The other exhibit that I enjoyed a bit more than the others was the paintings displayed from Dagne Hanson. You usually can’t go wrong with paintings of flowers!
