Instagram Recap: May 2015

// by @thecraftedlife on InstagramHappy Monday and happy June, folks! I know I gave you a sneak peak on Snapchat last week, but here it is– I have pink hair! It’s been something that I’ve wanted to do for ages but could never really commit to (mainly because hello, what would Martha think?). I decided to be impulsive and just do it because life is short. Plus, I can always go back to red, right?

Here’s what else happened in May:

Pantone Cards // by The Crafted Life on Instagram

I purchased these Pantone postcards and have just been obsessed with them ever since. I used them during my color hunt Instagram meet up and plan to do something fun with them in the future. Maybe more meet ups? Or a project? The wheels are still turning on this one!

Flamingo Drink Stirrers // by The Crafted Life on InstagramAll I have to say is vintage flamingo drink stirrers. Now I have to add a reoccurring cocktail series to the blog, yeah?!  I picked these up at a shop in Portland called Darling Distraction. You may have heard me talk about it before because it’s easily one of my favorite shops in town. Add it to your list if you live here or are planning a trip!

Strawberries // by The Crafted Life on InstagramMy dad got me a waffle maker for Christmas and I have been putting it to good use lately. Nothing better than a chocolate chip waffle with fresh strawberries on top! I’d share a recipe, but let’s be honest, I use a box mix. Ha! I’ve also been making hash browns with the waffle maker and it’s incredible.

Studio Space // by The Crafted Life on InstagramI had the pleasure of stopping by Anna Joyce’s studio space at the beginning of the month and haven’t stopped day dreaming of a place of my own since. My big goal for the blog is to have a studio by the end of the year. Then you could all come to Portland and craft with me anytime. What a dream!

Peonies // by The Crafted Life on InstagramI took an afternoon off and went to a few peony farms with my friend Melissa of Lulu the Baker. If you have a farm in your area, I suggest going asap before these babies are out of season. I ended up paying about half of what I normally pay in stores, so needless to say every room in the apartment had a few vases full.

That’s it! Pretty low key overall I guess. How was May for you? Some of your favorite memories or Instagram photos?
