Flowers will forever be on our favorites list!

If you're here joining us for the #bloomigchallenge, welcome! If you aren't sure what that is, this month we are using the month of December to share more of our heart and personality with special daily prompts on instagram. We welcome anyone to join and you can find us at @bloomtheworkshop. As part of this December challenge we have asked you all to write a blog post every Monday and this week's is "Favorite Things". Today we are sharing a few of our very favorite things with you!  

1. Calligraphy Kit |  We believe in staying creative outside of our designated crafts and calligraphy is one of the places we find inspiration. We absolutely adore these calligraphy kits by Jenny Sanders of Graceline Art. They are currently on sale. You can learn from Jenny herself at our upcoming Carmel, California workshop this April! 

2. A Great Planner | There are so many good planners to choose from these days. For us, space to write out business related appointments as well as personal items is a must. We also suggest a planner that leaves rooms for jotting ideas and even keeping an editorial calendar. This chambray 2017 planner by Sugar Paper LA is aesthetically pleasing AND perfectly able to keep us on schedule

3. Box + Bow Gift | When we happened upon Box and Bow earlier this year we were smitten. We love the thoughtfully curated collections and think they are the perfect gift. We personally love "Cheer" for the holidays and "Steep" for the tea lover!  

4. A 50mm 1.8 Lens | One of Ashley's favorite things to recommend is a 50mm f/1.8 lens. This is the most cost effective solution to taking a step toward taking better photos, whether you are a budding professional or just need to take good photos for your blog or business. 

5. Auto CAD | Michaela recommends Auto CAD for her interior design and event projects. She uses this to draw floors plans to scale and be sure furniture fits into client spaces.

6. Candles | Of course, how could we not include a candle? We think after a long day of work there is nothing better than lighting a candle, pouring a glass of wine and scrolling through instagram stories. Okay, sort of kidding about that last part, but seriously-- these Ellery May Candles are the best! We are obsessed with "Capri" and "Christmas Hearth".
