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.

All of these new prints are on their way to Decorative Arts and soon can be bought on my new website!  Woo Hoo!  I’ve  been talking about it for over a year now but finally it’s almost to my liking.   I’m in love with this garden print and can not wait to place it in the perfect spot at Waldo’s Secret Garden where I will be living all summer after graduation!

I stopped by Countryside Citrus beachside yesterday and loaded up with citrus to get creative!   Here’s a peek at a few ‘3D prints’ so far!  All of these real life citrus prints are variations of different prints I have created digitally over time!  Gracias for the key lime pie & citrus, CSC!  The citrus came in handy last night once we started barreling through vodka! There is nothing better than fresh salty dogs!

Dave & Cindy kind of day

In dave & cindy, i made this on February 6, 2014 at 4:42 pm

A few weeks ago I took photos of David Busch and Cindy O’Dare for their radio show (and personal archives!).  I love working with these two because creatively, we are all on the same page – anything goes!  We all just showed up with bags of costumes.   I like to think of them as the modern day Rock Hudson and Doris Day.  Here are some of my favorite photos from the day!

Is it time to wear bright, fun clothing yet?  Spring is my favorite time of the year!  Not like it’s been incredibly cold in Florida but, ya know.

Featured!

In i made this, ideas on January 16, 2014 at 4:29 pm

A few amazing things happened between December & January!  I was so honored when the Editor of Portfolio Magazine approached me for a feature! Check out the full magazine here!  Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company also featured me on their Facebook which was equally honoring and so sweet of them to share my citrus inspired prints (second photo).  Then one final one I found about last night was that one of my favorite sites Inspired By This featured one of my prints on their instagram a few weeks ago!  The beauty of pinterest! (last photo)!  I have to say Thank you so much for all of these people following and supporting my artwork –  it really motivates me to keep charging forward with all my design work!
