my prints + knees on leaves

In fun, i made this on August 30, 2013 at 8:24 am

I am so happy to announce a few of my prints will be up for sale on Katie O’Dare’s wildly popular website, kneesonleave.com!  Katie is such an inspiration and I’m so lucky to have her in Orlando!  Our hang out sessions usually consist of a few cocktails, a notepad to jot down our ideas, and tons of creative flow –  I like to think we keep each other balanced with any design dilemmas  we run in to!

meet Jenny!

In fun, i made this on August 26, 2013 at 2:07 pm

Jenny is one of my very best friends since 9th grade! We had a fun photo shoot over the weekend all over Orlando!   Jenny is an amazing artist (paintings below) like every birthday or holiday I’m usually begging her to paint something for me but Jenny left behind the artist lifestyle and got her bachelors at UF and Masters at UCF landing her an amazing job in a defense company!  I still wish we could be streets performers together beating bongos and over using “namaste” but alas … she’s still a talented beaut!

from the farm

In food ideas on August 22, 2013 at 11:16 am

I look forward to waking up every morning lately because I make a little coffee and then start making my newest obsession – baked eggs!  I looked up a ton of recipes but I just started tossing some ingredients that I had readily available into the dish and bam it’s the most delightful meal and I am not a breakfast person at all … usually I like chicken noodle soup or possibly spaghetti in the am.

eggpost

2 eggs| handful of sliced tomatoes | handful of spinach | sliced turkey ( if extra hungry!) | goat cheese | salt n peppa |

what I did: sautéed the spinach and tomato in olive oil  & then tossed in all the ingredients cooked 12-15 min at 450

balloon beach style shoot

In Style on August 8, 2013 at 5:44 pm

I ordered these rather large balloons last year and was determined to use them for a photo shoot of sorts!  They were massive… I mean 5 more and I would’ve been levitating across town ( i think?)  Anyway, I teamed up with the lovely & talented Ashley Morgan again from Ashley Morgan Photography  to capture these beautiful moments on Vero’s beaches.  I love working with Ashley – it’s always last minute and we have maybe 2 days to plan but that’s what makes it fun and impulsive + usually how I operate in general.  Enjoy!

Oh and that lovely Willow & Clay gown?  It’s supposed to be a wedding dress (or so that’s what the lady told me) but I saw it as a play- around- in -the- beach dress.

atrium

In Waldo's Garden on August 8, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Like any other 26 year old I keep begging my parents for an atrium at the house!   Waldo’s Secret Garden is in the midst of some neat renovations and while an atrium isn’t quite in the cards yet – I knew if I showed my Mother this plant wall she would go bananas and I was right!  This living wall we spotted while wandering Winter Park in Prato is definitely in the works for the fall weddings at the Garden!   Can’t wait to get started for the special days ahead!
