A Really Nice Day

On my last day in LA, Claire, Lili, Lauren and I had a craft day together, where we were also joined by the wonderful Leigh of Synonym Journal. All I can say is that it was such a nice day and exactly what I needed. These girls are the best and I feel so lucky to know them.

We had a beautiful lunch in Claire’s backyard, and then took inspiration from a book Claire picked up in Paris and did some printmaking with fruits, vegetables, seeds, leaves and more. I left LA that day so inspired but with a heavy heart having to leave behind this beautiful collective of dear friends.

Can’t you just feel the sun in these photos?

    This is a lovely post. It *would* be great to do this with small people but actually I love the idea of printing alongside friends as you did, chatting about whatever and making art together.

    That looks like so much fun! I love the colors of the paint together with the vegetables.

    i sure miss you sweet Cheri!!
    what a beautiful post!
    this day was full of such beauty… both the loveliness of the LA sunshine mixed with our creativity and kinship, and the feeling of being in the present moment, being grateful for each other and the specialness of the day, and sadness about you not living here in LA. all swirled together.

    i miss you!
    move back
