I Create Products, Textiles and DIY Projects
Welcome to my design studio. I am so glad that we found each other. A Day in the Life blog is where I will document ongoing design projects that are happening in my studio. I plan to share musings on product design, tutorials and DIY, all while helping you curate a handmade space. I love everything handmade, especially textiles and simplicity in design. I will go into more details about that in just a minute, but first a little bit about myself and why I've decided to keep a blog.
I created my first blog back in 2009, when blogging was relatively new. For 7 years, blogging was a hobby, where I learned a lot about myself as a writer and a designer. Today, I mostly design products and textiles, along with the occasional interior design.
Every day I wake up and I create something new. Some days, I work in my art studio, while other days I teach workshops or classes. This blog is my way of sharing projects, ideas and tutorials with you. I will also review and share quality workshops, events, and museums that I attend in Los Angeles for those of you who love art, craft and design as much as I do.
Through this blog, I hope to connect with you and designers from all over the world. I would love to hear from you. What does your creative process look like, right now? What new art skills are you interested in learning?
Although, I write the majority pieces here on A Day in the Life, I am currently accepting guest submissions for Children's Spaces, Asian textiles, and nature-inspired DIY. For more info, please visit my About page.
Here are some of the most popular things that I write about.
Please have a look around!
HI, I'M HILARY.
This is where I share inspiration for a hand-crafted lifestyle from natural dye methods, textile surface techniques, and the best of contemporary California design. I love dreaming up products for an artful sustainable home. I offer workshops to inspire you to live your best life by connecting you to your creativity and others. I hope to meet you in person at one of my current craft workshops for creatives like you! Join my tribe to receive your first free video on Shibori folding with me.
All layouts on this blog are created solely for, A Day in the Life. I enjoy sharing information and love when others enjoy my ideas enough to post the links on their own sites. I simply ask that you credit photos and link back to all original posts.
