Ampersand for Command // DIY Holiday Gallery Wall

To give our Gilded Modern look our own playful touch, we created a gallery of painted holiday artwork, which we placed in simple frames to hang alongside a huge DIY gold himmeli wreath (we used this great tutorial for the wreath). The beauty of the gallery wall is that, using Command™ Picture Hanging Strips, it is the easiest thing in the world to put up, move around and take down­— perfect for something you don’t want to keep up all year. For the full step-by-step of the gallery wall creation, head to Command.com!

8 Days a Week: thank you to Monica Spiehs

Ampersand Design Studio

We are so excited to introduce you to Monica Spiehs and her mad sewing and pattern designing skills! We can't even express how lucky we were that Monica volunteered to help us with our sewing projects! She was a rock star taking on so many pieces and designing them as well. We just gave her a few thoughts on what we were looking for and she made them come to life! She made the a-line skirt in the yellow polka dot fabric, worn by Michelle from her own design. Then, she created the little numbers dress with the ruffled sleeves for her own daughter, Lilli. We can't even handle the cuteness of both, the dress and Lilli! Really, are you kidding with how darling that dress and all its little details are (the yellow buttons, the pink top stitching... ahhh!)? Then, there's the baby romper, modeled by sweet Amya! Another dose of sweetness overload, no?! We just loved the ideas Monica had for how to make our fabrics come to life! We are pestering her to start making patterns for the rest of us to use because they are just too good not to be out there in the world! As if those weren't enough amazing projects for her to take on, she did our flag banner as well. So cute for a nursery or kid's playroom, don't you think? Monica: thank you doesn't even cut it. We are so grateful for your talent! Thank you for your time and generosity and for supplying one of our lovely models! We can't even wait to see what Monica is up to next. We are hopeful it includes some patterns for her designs or some kid's clothes!

Mother’s Day Anthro Event // painted flower pot DIY

Ampersand Design Studio

We already shared a little recap of our Mother's Day Anthropologie Event here, but we thought it was only fair to make sure that all of you, even if you couldn't make it to the event, could still do this fun little painted flower pot DIY! We've shared our super-easy steps below!

The only supplies you will need are: painter's tape, scissors, paint, a flower pot, (optional hole-puncher) and a wooden skewer! And of course the perfect flower or plant of your choice to finish it all off!

We had to share one more shot of our entire fabulous group of attendees! Such concentration, right?

And, here you go – a free printable for your very own flower picks! Just click right here to download:
