Have you ever admired someone from afar and had a feeling that you’d be friends if you knew each other in real life? I have that (insane) feeling about Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Garner (they seem so nice! We’re all Southern!) but I’ve always had it, in a more realistic way, about Christine Schmidt from Yellow Owl Workshop. I’ve been a fan of her work and the way she runs her business for a long time. I’ve admired the way she’s grown her business while keeping creativity and fun at the center of everything. Getting a peek inside her daily life was just as fun and interesting as I expected and I hope you’ll all enjoy this little snapshot of her work life as much as we did. xo, grace

8:30 Pack Emmy’s cliche lunch and get her ready for Silvia our stellar nanny we share with another family. Clean up desk/kitchen table kitchen for photo shoot. Although I have a studio, I prefer to work alone at home and THIS is what my “office” usually looks like.
4:30 Mail lady brings be this eBay score from Columbia. ebay phone app is dangerous but this is officially a work expense. Evan- I swear!! Call Maria at the studio to check assembly and packing of outgoing orders.
9:00 Walk up the hill towards home and discover Emmy awake way past bedtime. Secretly psyched to snuggle a bit before tucking her in. We watch “Burning Love” on iPad until my eyelids get heavy. Tomorrow is Saturday and even though deadlines demand work tomorrow, I am very lucky. Goodnight!
