Studio DIY is Hiring: Creative Development + Styling Assistant

Studio DIY Hiring

You guys! We’re so excited to be growing the Studio DIY team by one more! Hoo-ray! We are looking for another creative mind and stylist to focus exclusively on developing and producing DIY content for the Studio DIY brand! The person who fills this role will work super closely with me to steer the direction of Studio DIY’s future content, and help put it all together too.

A quick (long) synopsis: This is a two-part job. Part creative development and part creative production. We are looking for someone who understands Studio DIY’s style and vibe but brings their own unique, new and out-of-the-box perspective to the brand. This person should push boundaries and bring a different point-of-view to the brand, while still staying true to Studio DIY’s core messaging. We clearly already have piñatas, donuts and balloons on lock. We are looking for someone who will be able to execute those ideas, while also bringing new ideas to the table.

We are looking for someone with art, design or styling experience, but someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty, day in and day out. Being detail-oriented is important ABOVE ALL ELSE! Yes, the blog is a craft blog, but DIY is our JOB and these DIYs should look like you could have bought them at the store. Someone who is enthusiastic and has a great sense of humor.

We hope to transition this position to a full-time position in 2016 and are looking for someone who is willing and excited to grow with the brand. You must be based in the Los Angeles area. If this sounds like you, please read the details and instructions on how to apply below thoroughly.

Job Tasks Include:

-Producing DIY projects and other creative content for Studio DIY
-Developing and brainstorming NEW ideas, concepts and topics for Studio DIY
-Styling DIY + other shoots
-Sourcing and shopping for materials, supplies and props


-Styling, art and/or design background
-EXTREMELY detail-oriented
-Self-starter and creative thinker (We need someone who is self-sufficient, decisive and confident in their creative skills.)
-On-set photo shoot experience a HUGE plus
-Must be available 2-3 days/week to work at Studio DIY HQ in Downtown Los Angeles, starting ASAP
-Must have your own car and laptop


Email with “Studio DIY Super Trooper”  in the subject and the following:

-Your resume
-A short paragraph about yourself including why you want to work for Studio DIY, why you are a good fit and your career goals
-A link to (or examples of) your portfolio
-Links to your Instagram, Pinterest and/or other social accounts
-Desired hourly rate

We are looking to hire as soon as possible and will begin reviewing applications on Monday, July 27th.

And yes, I know I spelled trooper differently. EHM #troopstudiodiy! Get it!? 😉

DIY Retro Swim Frapp(uccinos)

There’s a story, of a Vanilla Bean lady. And GIRLFRIEND needed a little sunshine! Starbucks asked me to personify one of their Frappuccinos and I felt it was my duty to give Ms. Vanilla Bean a little retro sunbathin’ makeover! Ok, I mostly just wanted a flower swim cap for myself. But WE ARE ALL WINNERS HERE! So for those of you who might be throwing just one more big summer shindig, I highly encourage you to turn your drinks into the bathing beauties they were always meant to be.

Sprinkle Party Printables

Sprinkle Party Printables

I’m really stinkin’ stoked to announce a fun partnership I’m doing with HP today! On July 18th, HP is launching an exclusive model of the HP Pavilion 17″ on HSN’s Today’s Special segment and I’m headed to HSN’s HQ in Florida to join in on the fun! I’ll be covering the behind the scenes of the whole shebang (along with some other awesome ladies!) on my social channels but first, a sneak peek!!

In honor of the launch and of the “birthday” of Windows 10 the segment is gonna be birthday themed (BA-BAM!)! So today I’m giving you a little peek at what I’ll be contributing to the segment…. some sprinkle party printables inspired by the bold and sassy-pants colors of the exclusive HP model! If you say the word “birthday” you know I’m gonna be there with BELLS on. Or, well, sprinkles on? You’ll have to tune in to the segment to see the rest of the goodness planned, but for now… I can get you prepped with some sugar-y sweet party goodies!

For those of you, like me, who might not have it in the budget to just up and buy a new laptop, one of the best parts about buying this exclusive HP Pavilion 17″ model is HSN’s Flex Pay plan. Kinda like layaway… but you get the product right away. And it comes equipped with the schnazy new Windows 10. BOOM! I took photos of my fave sprinkle combos and used my new (Blue! Do you LOVE that color?) HP to help me edit the photos and turn them into three awesome printables for you folks! Party hats, ice cream wrappers and party blowers… gangs all here!

1. Print your sprinkle image on regular computer paper and cut a 2.5″ x 10″ strip. Fold the strip in thirds, so the ends slightly overlap in the middle.
2. Run a skinny piece of tape over the opening to secure.
3. Roll up the folded paper and secure with a small piece of tape or rubber band and leave it rolled for as long as possible, up to a day even! In the meantime remove the old cardboard/cardstock from your party horn, leaving just the plastic blower piece.
4. Remove the tape/rubber band and pop open one end of the folded paper. Slip it over the end of the plastic blower, fold the ends of the paper in and wrap with a piece of (pretty!).

For the party hats, print out the template above on cardstock. Cut and roll into a party hat shape, securing with double stick tape. Poke a hole in each side and slip elastic through, tying in a knot. Hot glue pom pom trim around the bottom.

For the cone wrappers, print out the template on computer paper. Cut out and roll into a cone shape. Secure with double stick tape and slip over an ice cream cone!
