NEW DREAMS

NEW DREAMS

Happy 2017 you guys! Yes, yes, I know I am VERY late to the game in well wishing. I wanted to share wth you a big update in my life that I haven't officially gone public with here.

As some of you know, at the end of each year, I spend time reflecting on the previous months, and spend time praying and contemplating what my word for the following year will be. This has been my tradition since I started working for myself 6 years ago - to remind me throughout the year, what to focus my heart on. 

My Collaboration with Capri Designs & My New Shop!

My Collaboration with Capri Designs & My New Shop!

Today I wanted to share with you my new lines of stationery, handbags & travel accessories I did in collaboration with the amazing Capri Designs! This line and collaboration is truly a dream come true for me and I'm excited to tell you more about it. I'm also opening up my own online shop today, directly on my website, to make these beauties available to you!

Behind the Scenes of My Flower Shop Fabric Collection

Behind the Scenes of My Flower Shop Fabric Collection

Today I wanted to share a little bit of the behind the scenes of the creation of my latest fabric collection, Flower Shop.

My Flower Shop Collection with Blend Fabrics is a pen and ink study of botanicals where bold black and white blooms pop against a pink and aqua canvas.  Watercolor details adorn ikats and iron-gate prints in pink, grey, lime, blue and black, coordinating effortlessly with darling dots and stripes.  These hand-painted patterns capture the lovliness of a corner flower shop.

My Word For 2016: Connect

My Word For 2016: Connect

Happy New Year to you! I know, I know, I'm about a month late. I can't believe January is already almost over and 2016 is off to a fast start!

If you've been around my blog for any length of time, you know that each year I choose a word for the year for me to focus on. This word helps center me, encourage me throughout the year and gives me an overarching goal to focus my business decisions towards. 2015's word was "Expand" and 2014's word was "Courage".

My word for 2016 is "Connect" which means:
– To become connected; join or unite
– To cause to be associated, as in a personal or business relationship
– To relate to or be in harmony with another person, one's work, etc.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas to you! I hope you and your loved ones have a wonder-filled Christmas this year. May there be moments for new memories and may the joy of old memories fill your heart as you think of those who are not with you this year. This year, I'm wishing all of us Peace on Earth and good will towards all.

I also want to wish you a happy New Year too! The start of a new year is my favorite time of the year. Here's to 2016! May it be prosperous in life and in your heart. Thank you for swinging by this year. It's been a joy sharing my journey with you.

Happiest of holidays to you and yours!

Uppercase Compendium Feature

Uppercase Compendium Feature

I received my UPPERCASE Compendium of Craft & Creativity this week! What an absolute delight. To top it off, as I was flipping through, admiring the gorgeous work of so many talented artists and crafters, I was pleasantly surprised to see my work featured in it! I seriously had no idea I had "made the cut" when I submitted my work months ago. What an absolute honor and treat to be included in this stellar publication.

NEW Art Prints in my Etsy Shop

NEW Art Prints in my Etsy Shop

Today I'm excited to share with you that I've added some NEW art prints to my Etsy shop! I'm starting out with 4 of my favorites that I've created this past year. If you follow me on Instagram, you may be familiar with some of the images.

Over this past year, I've been working on "expanding" by creating more artwork with traditional media. I've been having a blast exploring, creating and growing and have been receiving lots of positive feedback on my work (thank you!).

I've also wanted to be able to connect with you directly in more and more ways. One of those ways is to expand my Etsy shop and offer art prints that would be beautiful for your home.
