In just a few days it’ll be March (woah!) which means spring is on its way. I thought it would be fun to roundup some favorite spring crafts from the Say Yes archives for a little springy inspiration. Hooray for pastels and open toed shoes!
We’re back with a Secrets of Stylish Moms today! Karen is a friend of mine from Henry’s school with really inspiring personal style. Born in Seoul, she grew up in New Jersey but has lived in SF for almost 20 years. She’s mother to an 8 yr old daughter who she says “can simultaneously inspire and exhaust me”. Karen has worn many professional hats, some for no more than a day. Currently she’s a picture book author/illustrator and co-owner of Reset (which I’m a huge fan of!). She loves chocolate, french bulldogs, filling online shopping carts that never go to purchase, dreaming of her perfect pre-fab house and using her daughters art supplies to make terrible art.

Up to anything fun or romantic this long weekend? Jared is off backcountry skiing in the Sierras until Monday night so we’re making Valentine cookies and laying low, oh and getting started packing!
