I recently deleted my ETSY account with my prints because I am trying to get new product photos, a new website etc.    In the meantime I was browsing ETSY – their product photos are something serious these days!  Check out these amazing products and photography!  Those constellation coasters are just dreamy.

candy crush

In i made this on September 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm

A few months ago I got sucked in to playing candy crush and it kind of consumed my life ( and some of my friend’s lives).  Hanging out at dinner, cocktail hour or a stop light consisted of me sliding in a few more games and not paying attention to pretty much anything, listening to anyone, or looking people in the eyes.  I’m not a gamer  but whatever – I needed something to distract my mind for a few bit.  Anyway, i deleted it … I miss it … and I created this to keep from downloading it again.  so long to crushing’ candy.

new prints

In decorative arts, i made this on September 11, 2013 at 1:03 pm

I was without a car for a tiny bit of the weekend which forced me to clean & work, work, work (because you won’t see me walking anywhere in Orlando).   Friday night without a car I found myself sobbing on the phone to my Mom proclaiming “… and I don’t even have a car and all I want is a bottle of wine!” She quickly reminded my pathetic excuse of a proclamation  that it would literally be done the next day.  Le sigh  – I just worked on website landing pages & made these pretty new prints for a wholesale order I received a few weeks ago!    They are the newest ones I’ve created  and I’m super duper happy with them!frames_2 frames_4 frames_6

back porch nights

In i made this on September 5, 2013 at 7:55 am

Florida nights are getting a tad cooler – by Florida standards, that is!  But then again, back porch nights are amazing whether smouldering hot, luke warm, or freezing cold.  Here’s just a few of my favorite things to have in arms reach while I’m cocktailing.   Although, that Oscar de la Renta kaftan is not actually in my closet!

this song would be a good listening choice too

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!

Dec Arts Photo Shoot

In i made this on May 13, 2013 at 1:01 pm

I finally got to use my new camera over the break!  We had a photo shoot for some new lines that came into Decorative Arts Apparel so we found an amazing piece of property owned by Jann Jerkins and her husbamd!  It was so beautiful and sprinkle of  great expectations ambiance which was such a dreamboat! We had champagne and a grand time!  The girls were so beautiful!  It was just an overall great day!
