Freezer Paper Stencil

Last week I got to go to the Alt Design Summit to help with Susan's workshop! In this pic I'm making a freezer paper stencil.  Here is a link to Susan's on Studio 5 explaining how a  freezer paper stencil, works.  It's really fun and easy. 

This is what it turned out like... a little messy, but thats because I suck with an exacto knife. 

Loves from Etsy

I love looking for one-of-a-kind handmade things on, especially jewelry. Here are some of my most favorite that I've come across!

The Penguin Book Club: A members only club!

Obsessed with these Penguin Hardcover Classic Books.

So I feel like I've seen them everywhere, and I envy all those whole flaunt their fancy books on their non-ikea shelves.
I want them bad, but $20 bucks a pop is a little pricey for a starving student and one whom is not likely to actually read them, just use them for their flashy covers. I'm thinking they will fit nicely on my ikea BILLY bookcase in between my green duck and the Harry Potter 7 book. These sheilas will be welcomed with open arms into the Phelon book family. (Please disregard the happy halloween, I know it January. Promise.)

Fortunately, I've found them on Amazon for $13.60, go crazy ladies! Good thing my b-day is coming up so I'm hoping my hubby will catch on to my subtle hints!
Here are some pics of these books in action..

My personal fav, I love that they mixed the Penguins with the vintage cloth covered books.

And since we are on the subject of Penguins, can we please talk about these amazing Penguin book cover wall art.

My name is Katie Phelon and I'm a student at LDSBC studying Interior Design.
I currently work at a local furniture consignment store called Home Again, as well as an assistant for an awesome interior designer named Caitlin Creer, and I am also interning for a super hip fashion designer and blogger, Susan Peterson! Here are some of the projects I've helped with...

I helped Caitlin with the installation of the furniture and accessories for a few Fieldstone Model Homes.

Some of my favorite pics from the models.

Love Love Love those Chairs!
Yep, I styled these bookshelves!

Caitlin is an awesome designer and I adore her style and I've had a great time learning from her hands on!

For Susan with Freshly Picked I have been able to help her get ready for a few local craft bazaars and conferences such as this week's Alt. Design Summit

cute stripe wallets! they can be purchased on her online store!

Baby mocks that Kourtney Kardashian's Baby Mason wears also can be purchased on her online store!!

With all things considered, I think that working for these stylish ladies will help me in my journey to becoming America's next Utah Designer. =)
