Geometric planters from Art Stvdio Brooklyn

Yellow ceramic tripod planter

I love succulents, colorful planters and geometry, so I was immediately drawn to these Southwest-inspired planters made by fellow RISD graduate Erica Peterson.

Hillary Visits

Hillary & Kristen at Chinati

We were very happy to welcome Hillary to West Texas for a few days recently. She came all the way from San Francisco to see us and my bump! She got to come to the baby shower and the next morning, we loaded up the car and took a mini road trip to Marfa & Fort Stockton.

Baby Shower Hostess Gifts

Hostess Gifts

A lovely group of family friends decided to throw a shower for our baby on the way. I wanted to give each of them something to say thank you, but I wasn't sure what to do at first. After scouring Pinterest and Google Images, I found lots of great ideas, but ultimately decided to go with something homemade to give it a personal touch without costing an arm and a leg (I had ten gifts to make, so I couldn't spend $20-$30 each, as much as I wanted to!)

Homemade jalapeƱo jelly seemed fitting for this group of Texan ladies. I designed the packaging myself and included a recipe card and a small spoon and knife for serving the jelly with cream cheese and crackers.
