Parker’s 2nd Year Photo Shoot Styling

Parker’s 2nd Year Photo Shoot Styling

Posted by on Oct 2, 2014 in Baby/Kids, Craft, Photography | No Comments

As my kids’ birthdays approach, I imagine myself looking back on their childhood about 20 years from now. It’s important for me to create a visual timeline as I tend to speak with imagery rather than words. Since photography is one of my favorite forms of self expression, and my kids are my biggest inspiration, these […]

Saratoga Springs On Deck Art Show 2014

This summer, my husband and I participated in the On Deck Art Show in Saratoga Springs. This will be our second time participating in this unique show to raise funds for a local skate park (established by Benj & Belinda Colon in 2012). Each artist is given a blank skate deck and encouraged to let […]

Baby Shower Decor: Our Largest Block Order

Baby Shower Decor: Our Largest Block Order

Posted by on Sep 4, 2014 in Baby/Kids, Blog, Craft, Etsy | No Comments

Upon receiving a request for a baby block estimate a few weeks ago, I realized that this would be our largest block order to date. My customer was in need of blocks for a baby shower, more specifically, to serve as 10 centerpieces. After some thinking, I responded with a quote and an idea to […]

Made by Hand & Heart: Personalized Baby Blocks

If it wasn’t for the urging of a friend, I may not have started an Etsy site in the first place. Now what came first, the baby or the block? Well, it depends. Some of my customers purchase a personalized, baby block set while anxiously awaiting for baby to arrive (as was the case when […]

Handmade Bench: It’s Time for a Fabric Facelift

Handmade Bench: It’s Time for a Fabric Facelift

Posted by on Jul 24, 2014 in Craft, Interior Design | No Comments

I really can’t believe that it’s been almost 10 years since I took this bench from sketch to finished furniture. It was my first brush with furniture design and a reminder that design is only 5% of the entire process. To say that I was intimidated would be an understatement, but that burning ambition always […]

Let There Be Light: My Obsession with Lighting Design

Let There Be Light: My Obsession with Lighting Design

Posted by on Jun 2, 2014 in Blog, Craft, Interior Design | No Comments

Ah, lighting design (better known as 3D design). I didn’t realize I was obsessed until I owned a house and was hell bent on finding the perfect fixture. Don’t freak out. Each lighting fixture was created pre-Lucas. Besides, I could never find time to string thousands of beads now-a-days. I bet you’ve gathered (from previous […]

Art Imitates Life: Birthday Party Favors

Posted by on May 12, 2014 in Art, Baby/Kids, Craft, Graphic Design | No Comments

For my son’s 4th birthday, I tried to come up with a loose theme that would capture his interests. Lucas inspired me to keep up with my own art as I watched him spend HOURS drawing, painting and creating this past year. I swear, I have to keep the paper hidden as he will draw […]

Baby Shower Gifts: Custom Made

Baby Shower Gifts: Custom Made

Posted by on Apr 29, 2014 in Art, Baby/Kids, Craft | One Comment

One of the best things about carrying a line of nursery products is the opportunity to gift them family and friends. My mother always made it seem effortless, but she spent many hours crafting, knitting and sewing beautiful, one of a kind mementos. That must be why I jump at the chance to create for […]

A Modest Nest with Lots of Love

To all the interior designers out there…much repsect. This project was so involved that I started to panic as Lucas’s due date approached. Not only did I fuss over every aspect of this room, but this very space was under construction just months prior. On the list: knocking down walls, patching up doorways and a […]
