Last Sunday, I spent my afternoon at the delightful headquarters of Baum-Kuchen, a beautiful studio/shop located in Los Angeles, CA. I was there to attend an Inspiration Lab workshop taught by Eunice Roe, the talent behind the amazing Instagram account @thedailyroe.
I left home very early, just in case the horrible L.A. traffic decided to rear its ugly head. So I got to Baum-Kuchen in plenty of time to snap a few photos before the workshop began.

Eunice shared her story as well. She told us how both of her parents were art majors and how she started journaling as a child in elementary school. Eunice shared her earlier journals with us and explained how her style has evolved over the years, from cute to the elegant vintage style she is known for today.
Eunice talked about why she journals and takes the time to create her incredibly beautiful and detailed pages. She went through all the different materials and tools she uses to create her spreads. She walked us through the process of how she creates her weekly pages and shared lots of helpful tips. Eunice even showed us how to make washi tape stickers using parchment/baking paper from Daiso.
