I’m featuring these jaw-dropping hand-painted cakes over on Glitter Weddings today, but the stunning creations, by the oh-so-talented, Maggie Austin, were too cool not to share here. Each of the former ballerina’s designs looks like a watercolor work of art; almost too good to eat … almost. Maggie even offers a two-day intensive flower workshop in D.C. (where I desperately need to be.)
Also, I’ve noticed that the more I blog, i.e., delve into this unbelievably creative world, the more cities I want to visit and re-visit, and the more creative classes I desperately want to take. In the past week alone I’ve considered pottery, cake painting, wire-wrapping, and novel writing.
Does anyone else have this problem? Do you take classes “just for fun”? Do you have the time or do you make the time?

I heart Wes Anderson almost as much as I love Luke Wilson. And Wes Anderson was the matchmaker.
And now I’m very very excited.
Is it May yet?

In perusing my Pinterest, a daily routine, I have noticed a trend. I ‘pin’ every image of delicate clothes on hangers. Apparently, I like clothes hangers. Am I the only weirdo with this obsession? You know you like clothes just a little too much, when you would rather have framed pictures of Oscar de la Renta gowns, than a collector’s Monet.
A big goal of mine is to update my hanger stock-pile. I have used plastic hangers since my Freshman year of college and I’m thinking its time for grown-up hangers. If i truly had my druthers (and ample free time), I would bedazzle every single hanger (a la Free People’s past campaign) like a true hanger aficionado.
By the way, Free People has a great tutorial on how to create your own sequin-dipped hangers.

Breathe – no books were harmed in the process. Books of Art by Isaac Salazar, are simply books made stunning … imagine this – by the art of folding. I’m practicing as we speak – but mostly my book just looks like I studied hard.
With sayings like “I love you more than cupcakes;” “You are the ketchup to my fries;” and “I love you like a fat kid loves cake,” Ecce Prints sure knows how to make a statement.
