Happy Friday everyone!
I’m beyond excited to share this content with everyone. Last weekend, I teamed up with Double Dipped Calligraphy to style a calligraphy workshop. I love learning and teaming up with Stephanie to host this workshop was great. Hosted at WORK in Downtown Redding, kept the vibe cool and modern. Using the classic ink and nib style of calligraphy, Stephanie delighted us with her knowledge and technique. She has been creating custom calligraphy and prints for 4 years, after discovering the craft for her wedding. Make sure to check her out here!
It’s midday on Thursday and our post from Tuesday has been a huge success. You guys loved it! We wanted to let you know that we’re cheering you on and that you can start the challenge anytime you like. We know some of you are wanting to start the challenge and we wanted to give you this little incentive. We designed this printable card for you. Once you complete the challenge, print it off, fill it out and post it to your Instagram using the #glistenandgracenomoneychallenge.
With the onset of fall, back to school days, and cooler temps, comes a rollout of fresh colors and textures. One of my favorite trends this season is the addition of copper finishes added to home decor. Last year we saw the revival of rose gold for fall jewelry. This year, the trend has gone widespread throughout home furnishings. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been loving the gold trend, but am more than happy to embrace this new finish. Lately I’ve been playing with copper as vessels for floral arrangements, but I’m happy to take this a bit further with a few DIY projects around the house. Paired with deep greens, matte black, mahogany wood finishes, and concrete, it’s a color combination I absolutely loving.
It all started out as a normal Monday. I worked out, made coffee, did some reading, sand got ready for the day. I packed up my bag and headed to the office. Then my business partner and came in and made a statement that stopped me in my tracks. It was simple, but stunningly provocative. She stated, “I’m going to try to spend no money this week.” As soon as I heard this, I immediately became reflective. “Could I do it? Is this something that I could accomplish?” I received it as my personal challenge for the week.
