A few weeks ago we traveled from Brooklyn to Cleveland, OH on Amtrack for a wedding we designed(photos coming soon!). When first imagining the long trip I wasn't that excited......I'm not the best at sitting still for any amount of time. Boy was I wrong!!! I'm here to say traveling by train is the absolute best. Not only did we get to talk with some amazing people, see some beautiful sights, but we also got to take that train over in true dc style. By the end of the trip we had set up a make shift studio in the lounge car and we were even crafting gifts for all the inquisitive conductors!
For us, everyday is truly a collaborative process. I feel so fortunate to have met a best friend that is also my creative counter part.....she is the peanut butter to my jelly fo sure! Since becoming friends we have always been inspired by working together and I can't imagine it any other way. When dreaming of our next collection of mats we thought it would be totally rad if we could step out of our "dc sandwich" and collaborate with all of our amazing artist and designer friends that inspire us day in and out. We played a bit of exquisite corpse with all of our homies.
happy labor day! where did the summer go?!!
here are some pics from a trip we took this weekend to western mass. it was very very refreshing to step out of the city for a bit. good friends, good food, good times. can't wait to get some land and build a little house of my own.
we are about to do a complete overhaul on our studio!! don't think we have ever shared what this space looks like and we've been here a year. Here are a few snip its.....
p.s. (for my momma) hope this helps you picture where I am everyday!!!
