I am so lucky to be surrounded by such talent in Orlando!  Yesterday Katie and I went for a drive and took amazing photos for her company Knees on Leaves!  Katie’s micro ecosystems have, in my opinion, revolutionized earthy jewels and brought our necks closer to nature.  A passion for Mid Century Design inspired Katie to create one of a kind terrarium necklaces.  Her inspiration stems from nature, all things beautiful as well as chaotic and imperfect!  Katie’s products have been featured all over the web (here & here) , sold all over the world, and has accumulated over 7,000 followers on instagram.   Hop over to her website and getcha self somethin’ great!

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

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!

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!

etsy finds!

In Ain't my art on May 22, 2013 at 3:24 pm

I feel like I’ve been lacking in creativity lately.  Well, maybe not lacking but it’s definitely on a hiatus – hidden for a bit until I finish a bunch of other work – but in the meantime, I tried to get the creative juices flowing so I sauntered over to etsy… it worked!  It always works!  Check out these lovely finds I may need to make mine!

mistakes // 01

In i made this on April 9, 2013 at 4:00 pm

I was researching online and came across this article on readership and it inspired me write a little blog on mistakes!  I make them often and it’s embarrassing but I know I will continue to make them throughout my career!  My mind is racing all day long between freelance, school and Waldo’s Secret Garden!  I wish I could say I stop and concentrate on one project but I usually have 20 tabs open multi-tasking like a mad man!  Anyways, there’s a specific publication in Vero Beach that I had issues with for months maybe even a full year (yikes)! I’m talking like I got e-mails multiple times a day “ Charlotte this is still wrong”, ” Charlotte you’re not doing it right” Charlotte Charlotte Charlotte! ha!  My fault the whole time I was saving a file wrong but finally about two months ago it occurred to me that I needed to speak to the graphic designer on their team because from what I knew I was doing everything right on my end.  Situation is fixed now, they just needed a different file type (simple!) but still when I think back on it I cringe!  I was about to give up doing the AD just on the mere fact that I was worried these people thought I had flutter nutter for brains!

lesson learned:  Speak with their designer(s) first and make sure you understand their requirements before you start creating!
