seamless pattern

In charlotte bloom, fun, i made this, ideas, Style, vero beach on October 20, 2014 at 8:32 am

Creating a seamless pattern is pretty important when getting into different realms of design. I used a tutorial from Creature Comforts (also a great blog!)  to help me create this seamless citrus design for gift wrap and fabric this past week!

hello annie!

In fun, i made this on April 16, 2014 at 8:16 pm

Annie… where do I begin?  We have been talking about making clothes out of my patterns via instagram comments and when I finally got the drive to do it I contacted her immediately.  Don’t you love how social media can bring people together?  I love Annie’s style and she has the most adorable ETSY site where she sells her clothing line WRARE .  I may abuse my privileges here because I am so excited for her to make a slew of cute clothes to wear!

ABOUT ANNIE

I started sewing by hand and eventually bought my first Singer sewing machine. Purchased a mannequin and would make myself dresses, skirts, and tops. I worked 2 jobs and would come home from one, make myself an outfit for the next, and then come home from work and sew some more. Then I had a wedding to plan…and I obviously wanted to make my dress. After making my hand stitched 75+ yards of tulle and silk gown, I took a hiatus. And by hiatus I mean I got pregnant and the babe stole ALL of my creativity. I wanted to make my unborn baby girl SO many things, but I was at a mental BLOCK! Soon after she was born I made her a little dress, followed by headbands, and it just went from there. I am forever learning new tricks and traits along with managing sewing everything myself with a toddler running rampant in my sewing room/play room. Its tough, but I think because I am a Mother, I feel more motivated. That is my story. I hope you enjoy my items and much as I do.

Ashley Morgan!  I love her photography!  I don’t know what else I could possibly say about her because she is so talented and you’ll see it right away with these pictures below! We’ve worked together a few times now and I am excited to work with her and Annie both as a little trifecta on a few upcoming projects!

meet amelia!

In fun on April 16, 2014 at 8:15 pm

Saturday at the Hibiscus Festival we met the most adorable person in all the land,  Amelia Strazzulla!  We were shutting down the booth and so tired from what seemed like an 18 hour day and then appeared Amelia!   Ya know when you’re just naturally drawn to someone’s spirit?  This is her!  She even has the most adorable blog called The Floral Fox! I see really big things happening for her very soon!

A little bit about Amelia … I am a 20 year-old blogger, photographer, style fanatic, thrifter, crafter, tea drinker and avid thinker from a little town in sunny Flroida. My blog, The Floral Fox is here to provide you with info on everything from sweet recipes, savory steals, travel tips, & of course, great style!

shotguns & seashells

In fun on February 6, 2014 at 4:41 pm

Meet Chandler!  She’s the new proud owner of a very cute blog Shotguns & Seashells!  I’m obsessed with the name and all the elegant fashion tips!  Country chic & yachtical all at the same time – I wouldn’t expect anything less from this gal and I’m excited to team up for some fun collaborations soon!

A little bit about Chandler

I was literally raised on the coast of somewhere beautiful, and decided to go off to school in the South for a little change of scenery. I’m a Fashion Retail Major at the University of Alabama and have a love affair with clothes and arm candy. I’m a horse obsessed, nail polish crazed, and cowboy boot loving kind of girl. And that is how I became Shotguns and Seashells. Roll Tide.

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!
