(post by bri) every time i visit portland i can see myself moving there one day. besides the amazing food & drink choices, i just like the vibe there. and i miss being surrounded by blooming trees. our blogshop class was delightful to teach. a laid back bunch that I was sad to say goodbye to.

now, let me tell you a little about the special handpicked items & blogshop sponsors!

1. poketo! you know this awesome company, right? they have an insane amount of cool office supplies & wonderful accessories. i chose these pie graph sticky notes to give to the students.

2. fontana studios reached out to us about having blogshop in their amazing collective artist space. it ended up being the perfect location! cool people (check out their art!) and very inspiring decor.

3. we love citrus. this gal touched my heart. she missed her flight and her husband drove her 9 hours (!) to make it to class! he should win an award. she also brought these mini gold stork scissors and materials for the students to make these lavender heart pillows. there’s lots of fun craft supplies in her shop here.

4. my recent obsession is these twistbands! they don’t dent or damage your hair when you put it up AND they look good on your wrist. i sometimes wear 2-3 colors at a time because i think they’re pretty.

5. our lovely intern rebekah {and former student} went above and beyond for us! she has an event company A & B Creative, so she showed off her skills and made the decor for class. those gold dipped vases & this string art sign were my favorites.

6. collude: triangle earrings in my favorite color yellow.

7. ashley page norton made these merci cards with japanese masking tape! i loved her color selections. see more designs here.
8. i thought it would be fun to have little sack lunches for everyone in class. elephants delicatessen has great local food that was a big hit.

9. creative thursday: i am obsessed with these bundles of fabric with whimsy illustrations on them. she’s got a great eye for color.

10. dry soda co! i am such a sucker for good packaging. i quit drinking soda a few years ago but i will definitely break rules for these dry sodas! simple, punchy colors — they’re a great addition to a party you are throwing!

11. whisker graphics donated these mini patterned bags. i can’t tell you how many times i have used these to give little gifts to friends.
