Lately I've been getting my DIY fix by heading to the local "paint your own pottery" studio. It's become a bimonthly meeting place for friends who want to get their craft on over tea and scones. Some of the techniques I've tried have turned out surprisingly well (chevron, I'm talking to you), others were a flop (ombre didn't translate), and others are too complicated to replicate again (hello peacock). Clearly soon I'll need to host a dinner party just to make use of my growing collection of platters.
My obsession with anything and everything adorned with a palm motif is still alive and well. From wallpaper to fashion and tech accessessories to stationary, once you start looking you'll find the print everywhere. It always reminds me of sunny tropical locales and as Spring has been reluctant to take hold here in the Pacific Northwest, a palm print is all I need to get by.
