Pillow Talk: Household Textiles Become More

Pillow Talk: Household Textiles Become More

Posted by on May 27, 2015 in Craft, Interior Design | No Comments

Growing up in a large family, you learn to cherish what you have and create what you are unable to afford. When it comes to personal possessions, I’m very much a minimalist. Fabric, on the other hand, has a way of luring me in and inspiring a slew of projects. I’m not ashamed to admit […]

Lucas, My Light: A 5 Year Old Soul

Staying true to my birthday tradition (in which I capture each child with a tailor-made photo shoot), I give you Lucas, at 5 years of age. Since Lucas is my first born, he obviously holds of a very special place in my heart. Weighing in at 9lb 9oz, his boisterous personality must have been lurking […]

Happy Birthday & High 5, to my Lucas

I think most parents would agree that a 5th birthday is a pretty big milestone. And what better way to celebrate than with a festive party with friends and family. As a mom/creative, I tend to put a lot of effort into my kids’ birthdays. It’s just my nature to express adoration through craft, design, […]

I’m not one to throw away my design convictions simply because I decided to bring adorable children into the world. Those curious hands may test your patience, but they’ll also inspire you to be more practical with interior selections. A few weeks ago my highly active 2 yo decided to turn mommy’s handmade cabinet doors […]

Interior Design: Our Office Space

As an artist & designer, the never-ending visual dialogue that plays in my head can be overwhelming at times. My sixth sense is to evaluate, critique and rearrange pretty much anything that comes into view. And since it is my job to create, I guess it’s only natural that my surroundings compliment my mood and […]

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a terrible time finishing projects. Upon arriving at the 92.7% completion point, I throw in the towel. I’m convinced that I’m addicted to the “anticipation” of completing a project, not the actual finished product. One of these projects that has been lingering for quite some time […]

Image is Everything: New Block Packaging

Those who know me best will tell you I have a bit of an obsession with product packaging. I didn’t acknowledge this obsession until I entered the field of design (specializing in branding) a little over 10 years ago. However, I think my appreciating for packaging developed while I was teen. While most of my […]

Petite Retreat Recap & Reflections

When I was first approached to show my products at the Petite Retreat, I must say I was a bit hesitant. Very fortunate that Ilissa, owner of Binx, believed in my work…but still…hesitant. I know how much work goes into prepping for a trade show since I have a bit of experience designing them for […]

What happens when you run out of time to make costumes for the kids? You improvise. This year’s Halloween inspiration came to me as we walked through Gimboree for the first time ever. I couldn’t get over the adult looking duds in toddler sizes. Oh so many mod dresses and hats…I just about died and […]
