Cra-ppy Hour

A little over a year ago, we started hosting Cra-ppy Hour events here at our Chelsea studio. Yep. Crafting + Happy Hour = Cra-ppy Hour. A bi-monthly post-work gathering of friends, we come together around our big conference table to chat, eat snacks, drink yummy beverages, and if we’re lucky – make a colorfully random… Read more

dozynki

Dożynki

Whether it’s Thanksgiving in America, the Moon Festival in China, or in this case, Dożynki in Poland, harvest festivals are a ubiquitous affair  - probably owing to the fact that it is an observance rooted in agriculture, crops, and ultimately, food. And really, who doesn’t celebrate food? In Poland, Dożynki dates back to pre-Christian times when… Read more

Wianek

Our love of flowers is no secret. We can’t always explain why, but they make us happy. They’re bright, fresh, smell really good, and are unequivocally beautiful. Even the most questionable looking (i.e. ugly) ones have a wonderfully charming quality to them, even if they may not be our first choice in terms of decor.… Read more

Fabric Snack Bag

Fall is here, school is in session, and depending on what part of the country you’re in, it also means that Fall harvest is in full swing. So along with the return to the post-summer daily grind, we’re back to preparing lunches and packing snacks to keep both energies and spirits high in the face… Read more

Beet-Poppy Seed Ice Cream

Believe it or not, in 1984 Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month, recognizing this sweet fare as a fun and nutritious treat that deserves to be observed with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Because, ahem, dairy’s a food group, right? Any how, he was clearly onto something. Americans lead the way in ice… Read more

Moon Jar

There aren’t many things that evoke the cozy feeling of warm summer nights quite like fireflies glowing in the dark. And there’s nary a kid (or adult for that matter) who, so enchanted by the magic of these bugs, won’t wear themselves out trying to catch a jar full of the glowing little creatures. Because,… Read more

kosciuszko

Tadeusz Kościuszko

Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko (aka Thaddeus Kosciuszko) is arguably the most legendary figure in Polish history. There are countless bridges, streets, squares, and landmarks named after him – there are also more statues of him in the U.S. than any other historical figure – apart from George Washington of course. Yet few people know who… Read more

Summer Solstice Piñata

The Summer Solstice is probably one of our favorite celestial events of the year. It marks the meteorological start of summer, and occurs when the Earth’s axis is most inclined towards the Sun – resulting in the longest day and the shortest night. This makes us extra happy because extra daylight = extra sun =… Read more
