If you know me at all, you know that my heart lies with modern, clean design. I love almost all design genres, but the simplicity and cleverness of the modern movements just speak to me.

Which is why my amazing husband (insert silly giggles of delight) picked the perfect wedding present: a REAL Phillipe Starck Ghost Chair. O. M. G. We pretty much still have all college furniture…you know, assembly required, particle board furniture. I long to have beautiful, quality pieces…and I am just so thrilled to have my first piece of REAL grown-up designer furniture.

Then last night I headed over to the Design*Sponge event at Dwelling yesterday, where they set a blank piece of paper in front of me and said, “make whatever you want.” Ahh, the possibilities! A blank piece of paper is so intimidating sometimes.

So naturally, my mind drifted off to my newlywed bliss and that thoughtful gift.

The craft event part was limited to 30 people and was just unbelievably cool. Grace was so friendly and fun to talk with – she and the other members of the D*S team walked around and chatted and it was just really neat to interact with these design goddesses!

The project was really simple and is actually in the book. You either traced one of the images provided or you drew your own onto sticky back foam. Cut it out, stick it on a piece of cardboard, and you have yourself a DIY stamp.

I had bought a pack of white napkins at Target so that’s what I stamped on. I kind of wish the material had been different so the stamp would have been more solid. But, it was still fun! Here’s how they turned out…

There were lots of familiar faces there…of course, Leigh from Dwelling is always so much fun to see, Jeni from Seastar Arts, Alesya of Alesya Bags, Charlotte from Charlotte Elizabeth Photography, Laura from Laura Olsen Photography, Melissa from Charleston Weddings Mag. So much fun to see everyone and just relax and paint! It was a great night.
