Officially obsessed with this shape, what about you? Kate Spade does it again.
Also obsessed with sunshine (always) and really hoping it comes out today, because the SNOW yesterday- in April!- was totally unwelcome. Man, a few years in Houston totally turned this Chicago x Minnesota girl into a wuss. Hope spring is springing wherever you are!

So Craftcation happened! And I suggest you make a mental note to sign up as soon as tickets go on sale next year because this year sold out. It was a really great conference – Ventura is beautiful and walkable (hooray!), Nicole + Delilah really pack the schedule with TONS of programs + events and you can work on your craft, your business and your friendships all in one place. Perfect!
I had a blast teaching a leather workshop where we made business card holders. I’ve shared a few leather biz card projects, but this is a new design that I’ll share over on Whimseybox later this week. Here’s a peek:
I also talked about how to get your first 1,000 blog followers. The full presentation is at bit.ly/craftcation1000 if you want to check it out.
Yeah, I look like I’m mesmerized by my own site. There are TONS of great pictures of the event here, so go check them out so you can peek at everything that happened and get excited for next year. If you come, I’ll explain what I was doing here
Actually, I have no idea what I was doing there. Thanks to everyone who came to my sessions, hope you’ll stay in touch!
Sad news. With everything being so busy Whimseybox and the end being near for Google Reader I’ve decided to call it quits here at Dismount Creative.
JK. Lamest April Fool’s joke ever? I dunno, just thought it would be fun to get in on the pranks since we didn’t get a chance to do anything really funny on Whimseybox (unlike Birchbox, which is now offering a subscription for boxes, ha!). I’m not going anywhere, so see you back here on our regularly irregular schedule. Happy April Fools!
In the move, the following things were lost:
One plant (RIP)
One picture (smashed)*
One step stool**
*So, the picture. It is this picture that I love of Joe climbing Mt. Rainer. Because it’s SO COOL! Because (1) it’s Joe (2) on Mt. Rainier! And it was taken with a point-and-shoot by his guide and the color of the sky is amazing and totally not edited and he had it framed and I remember seeing it in his condo when we were just friends. Well, it was one of the very last things that the movers packed in Houston and they managed to bring it 1,200 miles to Boulder in perfect condition just in time for me to prop it up on the mantle (carefully, I thought!) only to have it come crashing down spectacularly a few seconds later complete with Joe shouting ‘LOOK OUT!’ just in time for me to leap out the way.
**Actually, I just finally found the step stool (in a box marked ‘her closet’!?!?) last week. Never mind the fact that I have a box of clothes that I am so disinterested in that I can’t even bother to unpack it. (Heads up, Boulder Goodwill.)
***I’m going crazy with all the boxes since things with Whimseybox are in limbo (we’re working of course, just not as efficiently as I’d like) while we work on getting an office. I’ll survive! It’s hard to complain after reading what’s happening to Ez at Creature Comforts (missing moving truck?! Glad I didn’t know that was a possibility a few weeks ago), but man it will be nice when I can find everything again.
We have a really fun, easy Pinterest contest happening over at Whimseybox and you should totally enter! It’s fast, easy and these babies could be all yours! Check it out + enter.
PS – Do it now, because there’s only a couple of days left!
