project brown bag Spring was last month's theme for the monthly art collaboration Project Brown Bag, and holywow did this crew do a fabulous job!

Layers of bright colors, sunshine, flowers bursting from the canvas - spring has been captured y'all. And the quote! Oh guys. The quote is so beautiful I can't stand it.

Isn't that the perfect quote for spring? When life is everywhere and the world is an abundance of flowers and opportunities! Okay, maybe that's just my interpretation... but spring makes it so easy to live and experience fully, don't you think?

spring Spring is definitely my favorite season. Winter is a time to stay cozy inside, reading, resting, reflecting, and baking cookies. Spring though, spring is for doing. It brings a sense of possibility and I-can-do-it-ness. It makes me want to get out there and make shiz happen... and the fact that everything looks and smells amazing? Well that's an added bonus.

My crush on this season and my obsession with florals is why SPRING is this month's theme for Project Brown Bag. Hoorah! Ya ready to join myself and Laid Off Mom for the most awesome collaborative art project around? Yesss. Here’s how it works:

01  The first 3 commenters to leave a “Hell YES” in the comment section will have the privilege of being our art contributors for the month.

02  Contributors will email me their mailing address and a 200 x 200 pixel image of themselves, to be used in a blog post. (Please send to

03  I will mail an art canvas to the first person to comment, and brown paper bags & mailing labels to each contributor.

04  Based on the theme of the month, the first contributor will add their own interpretation of the theme onto the canvas, using whatever art supplies/medium they wish (within the allotted time limit: 2 days) then that person will insert the piece into the provided brown bag & mail it to the next contributor whose address is provided on the mailing labels. (You get the art piece, you add to it, you send it out)

05  Once the canvas has passed through each contributor, it will be mailed back to me, the host. The host may/may not make their own contribution to the piece, then they will blog about it the following month with an intro about all our artists.

After a full year of art projects, we can look back and enjoy the artwork that has passed through so many different talented hands throughout the country!

* all contributors will be providing the postage

** all contributors must live within the contiguous United States

There is no right or wrong way to decorate or add to the canvas. Create what you want with whatever supplies you have!  I’m a fan of washi tape… that’s not required, but I’m just sayin. As long as the canvas fits into the bag, you are good to go.


Good luck, friends!

project brown bag The monthly art project, Project Brown Bag, is getting GOOD, y'all. I got the final piece back from February's PBB contributors and was blown away. February's theme was celebrate. I'm so so impressed with the results. It's like each one of them knew exactly what to add to the canvas to make me fall in love with it. I mean pink poms? Glitter confetti? A CAT WEARING A PARTY HAT? Oh these ladies are good.

HUGE thank you to our contributors!!


The canvas traveled from Amy to Lizzy to Lisa; Massachusetts to New York to Maryland. Well I think it's safe to say the East coast rocked PBB. What do you think?


Louise of Laid Off Mom is hosting this month of Project Brown Bag, so head on over to her blog for more details + a chance to enter to be one of our art contributors! Go, go!
