Instagram Road Trip || Austin to Seattle

My lovely friend Liz Le Dorze is currently in the midst of a road trip from Austin, Texas to Seattle, Washington and she's instagramming as she goes. Liz is the owner of the Komedal Road studio on Bainbridge Island, W.A. where I taught a series of workshops last September. Instagram is my favourite social media platform for keeping up with what everyone's up to. Also, unlike facebook and now pinterest, instagram still has the simpler format of just showing you everything in date order rather than showing you what they think you want to see. 

So I spotted Liz was off to Austin and using the hashtag #austintoseattleroadtrip to keep track of the journey. She already has one of the best instagram accounts out there so if you're on IG I really recommend following her @lizledorze_komedalroad. En route from Texas she is going to be shooting the new clothing line by Stella Love which is just the most super lovely collection.  

Take a peek at the Stella Love line here - all designed and hand sewn in Seattle. The fabrics that they use are in small quantities so all the items are basically limited edition - when they're gone, that's it! I really enjoyed looking through the archives as each season is so beautiful and the photography is just amazing. 

I can't wait to see what Liz and Maresa come up with on their road trip.

*New* Date Added // How to start up your creative business workshop

This is a very quick blog post to confirm that we have added one last date for the Start Up Your Creative Business workshop for 2014. It will take place on Friday 14th November at The Decor Cafe in Putney, SW London.

If you'd like to book a place, please book online here and please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. There are 6 spaces and 4 have already been booked up from the waiting list.

The workshop covers so much material in a day, it is really quite full on but so exciting to see all these new ideas coming together.

We cover everything from things like legalities and the key practical differences of being a sole trader vs a limited company, to using social media to promote your business. And so much in-between. For the full outline please visit the website here.

We are very free with our experiences and really hope that those attending will be inspired in the same way as people like Nicky Heard who set up a business designing beautiful homewares and recently exhibited at Decorex 2014.

It really is amazing what you can achieve when you put your mind to something.

Right, I'm popping off now to prep the studio and workshop for the Paint Like A Pro workshop this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone.
