MADE: St. Louis Craft Mafia Studios

12 Apr

So I am super excited to announce that the St. Louis Craft Mafia is opening a community studio space down on Cherokee Street near Fort Gondo. The  plan is to create a cooperative space for indie crafters and artists in order to:

Provide a kick-ass community-centered craft collective by
providing personal studio/work spaces for artists and crafters to
come socialize and create.

Create events and provide opportunities for sales to help artists
make money through their craft.

Develop relationships between our organization & local  
businesses/organizations that will enrich our artists’ businesses.

Remove cost-prohibitive barriers by providing shared equipment
& supplies available for all Collective members to use.  We will
invest in new shared equipment at every opportunity

Strengthen the indie craft sense of community.

You can find more information and apply for either private studio or community studio space over at http://www.stlouiscraftmafia.com/made. We cannot wait to get in there and start making the space our own. I put together a little mood board for the space. Take a look and let me know what you think!

My favorite blogs

9 Apr

So my list of favorite blogs is constantly expanding and I thought I would take a minute to share my faves with you all. I know at least one of you will enjoy these blogs as much as I do, if not more.

Design Sponge is a daily read and I love all of their content. But my favorite posts are the before and afters. Always so inspiring.

Holly over at Decor8 has the most amazing sense of color and style. She is always introducing me to incredible designers, photographers and other talented folks on her blog. Thank you for being awesome Holly!

And last but not least: Young House Love is the blog of the ultimate diy power couple, John and Sherry Petersik. They transformed their home from blah to fab and share all of their knowledge and how-to tips with their readers. Another daily stop for lots of inspiration and design ideas and solutions. And they are expecting their first child so their nursery transformation has been tons of fun to watch.

I have so many other faves but that is all I will share for today. Mostly because I need to hop in the shower so I can be ready to meet the talented and super fun S. Bosse for drinks tonight on the patio at Schlafly. Leave me some of your favorite blogs in the comments so I can add to my list!!
