Oh May Goodness

Amy Tangerine | Oh May Goodness - beautiful brush script + styling

Is anyone else in total disbelief that it's already May?! Sure, they say time flies when you're having fun, but even with some bumps and not-so-good things that happened in April, I think the months are just zooming right by. If you're curious as to how I shot this (I love behind the scenes stuff myself, which is why you could follow along on Snapchat amy_tangerine as I share a lot there). After I scripted it using these watercolors and stealing flowers sent from Mixbook (I have a custom card and address label collaboration with them) I set it up on the floor by the large window and took about 6 photos.

I didn't, of course, include my toes. All photos taken on iPhone 6. To see more on how I edit my Instagram photos, check out this video.

Vegas Uncork’d

Last week I had the honor of attending Vegas Uncork'd at Border Grill in downtown LA. Chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger cooked up an AMAZING Latin-inspired feast, complete with tequila tastings! it was such a treat to be able to interact with the chefs and be able to hear their personal stories on not only how they created the menu but also how they got to where they are today! Very inspiring.

Not the best thumbnail but I went with it for this video. Wish I were going to Vegas for the actual event, but maybe next year... who's with me?  Hope you have a wonderful and delicious weekend!

For the love of paper

Mother's Day Handmade Gift Guide

Scoured Etsy for some fun Mother's Day presents I would want to receive myself (no, that's not really a hint for JC or Jack - wink wink). Instead of waiting until the last minute (although it is less than two weeks away!), I thought it would be fun to do some browsing online.

Hey St. Pete and San Diego! Here's just one of the layouts from my Better Together class that I am teaching at Whim So Doodle and Paper Tales in May. We will be making 3 layouts and a traveler's notebook. I'll also be teaching a brush lettering class in both locations as well. I update my sidebar with events when I have them. Here's another little sneak peek.

If you can't make it in person to these, I may have some extra kits that I will be putting in the shop in May. Also if you have a local store you want me to come teach in, please feel free to have them contact me! Can't wait to see some of you in May!
