bbq inspired straw flags

In i made this, ideas on October 20, 2014 at 8:30 am

Straw flags are super easy to make and look really great for presentation for bridal parties, bbqs, baby showers and weddings!  Paper straws work fine but if you can find plastic ones I say go with those – the paper straw kind of just melts away and tastes funny (but photographs oh so well) Today’s theme is bbq! First download the PDF file I made (below) and follow these super easy steps to making drinks look that much more adorable at your next partayyyy.

Love this quote spotted on the streets of NY by my friend, David Busch!   Obsessed with gold foil and lots of watercolor these days…

I have a feeling this obsession will last forever though!

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!

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!

Featured!

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!

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!

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!
