This past weekend, we were honored to co-host Schoolhouse School with our friends at Schoolhouse Electric Co. Schoolhouse School was a day-long series of workshops centered around the idea of holiday entertaining, highlighting the talents of folks in our building on NW Nicolai as well as other favorites from around town (and one from Oakland!). Students spent time learning Calligraphy with Maybelle Imasa-Stukuls (of Oakland, CA), flower arranging with Anna Mara Flowers, and table styling with Commonwealth Vintage Rentals. It was wonderful to be involved and to see how a little bit of instruction empowered students to create the most beautiful arrangements and their own styles of hand lettering. We were very inspired by this day and in are in awe of you all!

Inspiration, studio, travel

Our second trip to Tokyo was a blast! Our official mission was to exhibit at the Tokyo International Gift Show. We shared a booth with other Oregon based companies; one specializing in essential oils, the other in natural fragrant room sprays. Between the two we were smelling lovely all trip long! Our off-booth hours were spent exploring ramen joints in building basements, jogging around the Imperial Palace (where the Emperor actually lives!), walking around Ginza, gathering inspiration in Daikanyama shops, drinking Whiskey in Shimbashi and scouring the 100 yen stores for studio gifts. Not a moment was wasted and yet we barely scratched the surface! Sayonara for now, Tokyo. We hope to see you again next year.
