Sometimes a long productive day at the office involves no office at all. Today, my creative partner Kristen Maniscalco and I spent the day here while ideas and inspirations for our PipflowerPower Makeshops popped up all around us. As we worked, we were visited by hawk, spider, dragonfly, Carolina wren, hummingbird, woodpecker, and the teeniest heartshaped leaf. I think nature is trying to tell us we’re on to something wonderful. (Photo by Ryan Wilson on Unsplash)
Yesterday we launched something new from Pip studio. FlowerPower Makeshops by Pippingtooth! It’s a collaboration between my dear friend Kristen Maniscalco who is an artist, educator, and nutritional therapist and yours truly.
The ideas for botanical makeshops have been swirling around in our hearts and minds for years individually. It just feels like something we’re supposed to do together. And so we have.
These are the photos from our first ever joyful botanical makeshop for blooming, celebrating and connecting. There was something so magical about this creative day. From teaching our guests how to make the crowns, to seeing the glow on our their faces as they donned their creations for the first time–all the way to the incandescent beauty we saw emerge while we photographed them.
This is a passion project for sure. Can’t wait to grow and bloom in the months ahead! Send us an email below if you’d like to be on our upcoming makeshop lists.
Will have lots to tell tomorrow!
this is one of my favortie places in the whole wide world. it’s a magical garden where new ideas about creativity and workshops bloom, slither, crawl, sway, splash, vine, sprout, buzz, dance, rustle, alight, and burst into my noggin.
