Love the free "Dress Your Device" wallpapers I created? Dying to know what all the hype is about? Well, my friend, wait no longer...
I'm so excited to announce my first Domaign Collaboration with my 5th Domaign class! I'm collaborating with the talented and amazing Cockrell Twins, Katie and Kellie! I'm joining forces with them to offer a domaign class specifically for Spring; together, we'll show you how to make DIY Blooming Monograms to bring some of the warm-weather-blooms inside.

Meet the fabulous Cockrell twins! Kellie and Katie!!!

Katie
Katie and Kellie Cockrell:

Obsessed with design, TED talks, fashion (that doesn't break the bank), entrepreneurship, and equality for all humans; we are twin sisters and best friends on a mission to share things that inspire us and hopefully you too. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah we grew up taking dance and gymnastics lessons and performing all over the place like crazy banshees (we would do cartwheels and sing at the top of our lungs down the aisles of Home Depot). Fast-forward a few years, we graduated from the University of Utah, both with degrees in Communication (I know - couldn't we have picked different majors?! #twinproblems), and spent the Summer traveling in Europe. You could say we caught the travel bug but it was more like EXTREME travel-typhoid-fever; since then we've been to over 35 states in the USA and several countries, and made it a goal to travel as much as we can.  
After we returned to the US, we decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue acting and dancing. We've acted and performed in several different projects including Star Trek Into DarknessStaten Island Summer and the Disney Channel Original MoviesHigh School Musical 3Return to Halloweentown and Minutemen; you can check out more of our acting related projects here.
Kellie
More than anything, we love creativity and inspiration - which is why we started katieandkellie.com. We hope to inspire you, make you laugh, challenge you and find comfort in the fact that we're all figuring this out together!

Domaign: April Design Your Device

I am so incredibly excited to let you in on a secret...I'm officially collaborating with two extremely talented individuals. These girls are actresses, fashionistas, dancers, stylists, bloggers, um, they basically have it ALL goin' on! And did I mention that they were in the latest Star Trek movie, Star Trek Into Darkness? Yes, I know, I know they are way too cool for me. But even with all their exciting adventures, we've managed to collaborate on my next Domaign class! 

Next Monday, we'll be announcing the full details of the next Domaign event, so stay tuned! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 29th, that's when the event is!! For now, we have a an insanely beautiful clue in the form of a "Dress Your Device" to keep you guessing what the event is! So before we announce the class next week, and before I announce who I am collaborating with, we want you to use these hand-painted calendar designs created by yours truly to spruce up your device's wallpaper and bring a fresh aesthetic and feel of Spring to your iPhone device! 

Save the Date, download the Design Your Device, and tell your friends! Trust me, you won't want to miss this Domaign class!

Currently Obsessed

Can I just express how ready for summer I am? Did you hear about Mother Nature's April Fool's Joke for tomorrow? It's supposed to snow! Well I'm not laughing. And I hate when people tell me that since I'm from Utah I should be used to it by now, yeah right! How can you be used to freezing rain particles for 7 months out of the year? I'm not surprised it's going to snow tomorrow, but I'm just not happy about it. I'll survive. But the ONLY reason why I'll survive is because I'm making some strategic summertime purchases with the following 3 items that I'm obsessed with and have purchased (or am about to purchase):

Domaign: Valentine's Day Cakes

I realize it's been over a month, and these images are a bit out of date seeing as it's not the month of Valentine's Day anymore, but these were TOO ADORABLE not to share! I'm seriously like a proud mamma looking at all these photos. We had a few mishaps, yes, but with some careful crafting we were able to send each girl home with a beautiful, festive, creative, fun and tasty Valentine's Day Domaign cake for February's event. I LOVED this event so much, partly because we got to nibble on frosting the whole time, and partly because I was seriously impressed with everyone's talents. This has been one of the trickier Domaign events we've done, working with perishables is not a cinch! And everyone came through with flying colors! THANK YOU to everyone who came, I hope they turned out awesome. Please send me, or tag me, or email me any personal images you took of your cakes before they were devoured. 

And an introduction to Domaign if you're sitting there scratching your head about what that word means: 

Domaign is a new word created from the root word of home (doma-) and the ending of design (-ign) to create Domaign, or home + design. It sounds like "domain" which gives it a the double-meaning of a person's territory or home, yet this word for "home design" means so much more than your territory or what your home looks like. Domaign is a movement empowering individuals to create a well-balanced home by refined, creative, handmade, purposeful, and/or well-balanced design. Which means that not only will you design what your home looks like, you'll be designing the food you eat and your health in general, designing how you spend your money and spend your time, making and reaching personal goals, while creating and maintaining relationships. Domaign refreshes the idea of "homemaking" by retooling & repurposing it for today's changing world by expanding the sphere of people who can use it while allowing it to fit more categories than just "crafting." Domaign fits that wider realm with the following categories: interiors, health, finances, relationships & personal improvement. What do you think?

On with the cake pictures!
