LEARNING NEW THINGS AND MAKING STUFF WITH OUR HANDS
We are the creative directors of Pop-Up Magazine, a live, on stage event featuring stories, documentary films, photography, facts and radio. www.popupmagazine.com
The Curiosity Shoppe
From 2006-2013, we owned and operated The Curiosity Shoppe, an online and brick-and-mortar store/gallery on Valencia Street in San Francisco, offering "curios for the creatively inclined".
THE CURIOSITY SHOPPE FOR TARGET
In the Fall of 2012, we designed a limited edition line of home décor, gift and stationery products for Target stores, inspired by road trips and Americana.
We are the authors of three craft/do-it-yourself books:
Wallpaper Projects, published by Chronicle Books, 2009
Show Me How, published by Harper Collins, 2008
More Show Me How, published by Harper Collins, 2010
We like to make things. We do it all the time. Often it's for our own personal enjoyment, but sometimes we do it for professional reasons as well. Here's a collection of some of the projects we made as the DIY editors of design*sponge from 2007-2009.
We have also contributed projects to some of our favorite craft books:
Crafting a Meaningful Home by Meg Mateo Ilasco
Design*Sponge at Home by Grace Bonney
Vintage Craft Workshop by Cathy Callahan
Stencil 201 by Ed Roth
Simple Times by Amy Sedaris
Recently Lauren has collaborated with our pal Victoria from SF Girl by Bay on some fun photo shoots.
