Life For Now And Always

Life For Now And Always

Guys. I had a baby. Three months ago today to be exact. When I actually think about the fact that three months has gone by since literally every cell of my life changed, I’m floored. I’ve been contemplating where to go with my next blog post since my last post. Originally I wanted to do a post about(READ MORE)
A MOON SHOWER

A MOON SHOWER

I of course, planned and decorated my own baby shower. That might sound crazy to some people but I think it’s impossible to be a creative being and not be hands on for this kind of celebration. Not only did I envision the theme of my shower around my son’s middle name but I had a second shower theme(READ MORE)
I Am Now A Renegade

I Am Now A Renegade

PSA guys… I left my design cave. I entered the real world. With real people. To set up a booth that caused me so much agada I don’t even know where to begin. To (hopefully) sell my cards to human beings and interact with them and hear what they think of my work. Cue panic attack. But, by the grace o(READ MORE)

FREE PEOPLE STYLE STATIONERY SHOOT

Guys, this morning I had a hormonal meltdown. I made a plan to go on a day trip up to Cold Spring, NY. The plan was to see some cute shops, have a nice lunch and maybe take a few photos, since it was a beautiful day and I finally had my part time photographer husband with me. But then my computer wa(READ MORE)

Holiday Madness

Well, Thanksgiving is over so let the madness commence. It’s so sudden. As soon as we clean our plates from an incredibly delicious meal, it’s immediate Holiday mode.

Harvest and Autumn and Fall and Babies

...Still waiting for the leaves to change and the cool nights to come. But apparently, it's fall. I normally feel sad when summer ends because I loathe wearing shoes that require socks. This year feels different though. And it might be because I'm pregnant? (YAY! smooth, I know) And one of the thing(READ MORE)

Summer 2017 Events & New Products, Hooray!

This summer I've had the chance to try my hand at some more event design, my second love. From time to time I'm lucky enough to have the opportunity to assist Paula Woods, owner of 14 & Hudson AND event stylist extraordinaire! Her talent is astounding and it's always an honor to work by her side(READ MORE)
Mother's Deserve More Than a Day

Mother's Deserve More Than a Day

The retail calendar is always a few steps ahead of the everyday, regular calendar. Which I have to say is an adjustment for me. I literally have to start thinking about Christmas in a couple of months. So strange. So about 4 weeks ago, I was already in Mother's Day mode, thinking of card designs and(READ MORE)
Let's Brunch

Let's Brunch

Spring has sprung. According to the calendar. Mother Nature hasn't arrived to the party just yet. But I have faith she'll be here soon with fresh spring blooms and a warm sun. As soon as mid march approaches I start to get really excited for outdoor activities, weekend adventures and summer planning(READ MORE)
