Yessss! Super lady AB Chao is bringing her Dewit Design Camp to Seattle in September 15th and 16th. The camp is, I’m just going to quote right from her site here: “A two-day workshop with interior stylist AB Chao, where you’ll learn everything from design basics to magazine-worthy styling.” Which I need, badly. There are rooms in my house I’ve put off decorating for real because I walk in and look around and I’m gripped by the overwhelming sense of just how much I don’t know how to make a room look pretty despite all the time I’ve put in looking at design blogs and Pinterest boards. The class is going to be awesome, sign up soon because it’s also going to be small! You can read more about it, see the Q&A and sign up for the Seattle class right here.
AB Chao is bringing the Dewit Design Camp to a whole lot of cities: New Orleans in May, Austin in June, San Francisco in July, and NYC in October (what a lovely time to be there, I’m officially jealous).
disclosure: I’m getting a discount on the price of the class in exchange for helping spread the word to all of you lovely people.

Hello Little One included the pie dough lattice cookies I created for Styled magazine last year in a round up of pie goodies for today, Pi Day. Smart girl, I hadn’t thought of that!

Amigurumi Patterns, a collection patterns that are free or available to purchase. I have yet to attempt crochet but that mustache might be a good place to start.
Big Stitch Knit Rug – the purl bee. So pretty and inviting looking. I wish my feet (and my wallet) liked alpaca yarn more.
Ombre Star Garland | Say Yes to Hoboken. This is really lovely! And making those stars can be addictive, I find it relaxing the way knitting can be.
Whit’s Knits: Big Cuddly Bunny – the purl bee. Also the Big Snowy Owl. I really want to make these for myself.

I’m very happy to have been asked to be a part of Yolo Colorhouse’s Color Your Life Guest Blogger Week. It’s super special because for every comment readers leave over there Yolo is donating $1 to the non-profit of each blogger’s choice. My non-profit is MusiCares, who help musicians cover medical bills. My husband Scott is a musician and we are lucky to have medical insurance but we’ve seen so many musicians be caught in pit of medical bills after an accident and we’ve taken part in fundraisers for them. I’d deeply appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment on my post over at Yolo’s site if you could. And to sweeten the deal Yolo is giving everybody a chance to win paint or Yolo products. Thank you Yolo, and thank you dear readers for taking a quick moment to help out!

Has anyone used Splat Washables Hair Dye? It says it washes out with shampoo. Does it? | Ask MetaFilter. The person asking tested it and it looks like it works surprisingly well, filing this for Halloween.
Hidden gems at the market | Ask MetaFilter. A question about what unassuming products are overlooked but work really well. I adore that the Queen Helene mint clay mask is mentioned, it’s one of the first products I ever talked about on this site. I used to use it back in high school.
Pretty me up, on the cheap! – drugstore makeup treasures | Ask MetaFilter. Great suggestions in here.
