- Stella Jean, Stella Jean, Stella Jean!
- Obsessed with these pleated landcape totes.
- Geometric patterns are trendy right now, but these West African homes are the real thing.
- Awesome rhombus stools!

- DIY bow tote bag.
- Super simple dotted neon wrapping paper.
- A DIY industrial clothing rack from pipes.
- Love a leather project – simple key fob.
- DIY idea: yes or no?


- Whimseybox was in the freaking Wall Street Journal!
- Ze Frank is back + always makes me smile.


- Rachel and I stopped by the GE Garages on the Rice University campus and practiced our MIG welding skills. They’ll be around until May 3rd, so go check out laser etching, 3D printing, injection molding and all kinds of other maker-y goodness.
- This is the second and last weekend of iFest, so get out and enjoy the festival before it’s a million degrees outside.
- And Saturday is the Texas Beer Fest at Discovery Green. Yum!
- Lemonade Day, a great program that teaches kids about entrepreneurship, is coming up on May 6th.
- The next Black Sheep Social Media ShinDig is Wednesday, May 9th. Register here!

That’s all! It’s been quite a week here with all of the news about Whimseybox being accepted to Excelerate Labs for the summer followed later that day by a mention in the Wall Street Journal. Thanks to all of you for your support- it means the world to me! Now go enjoy your weekend Smile
