I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet. {Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!} Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting! We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right […]

So thrilled to finally share a behind the scenes look at our recent features in Flower Magazine!  Last summer a message in my inbox turned a good day into an amazing one.  Liz from the magazine got in touch to invite me on as their Artist in Bloom for the winter 2011 issue.  My heart jumped…I could barley contain my excitement.  After receiving a complimentary subscription the season before and diving deep into every issue since then, the prospect of being featured on the pages of this magazine floored me. Soon I was busy with a flurry of plans for […]

There are moment when your life shifts.  Usually these are small moments when big change is least expected but most likely.  Saying yes to an idea or just being in the moment with an welcoming mind can open doors to so much good.

In November of 2009 I hopped a flight to join Lara Casey and team in celebration of Southern Weddings […]

Have you seen the new issue of Inside Weddings?  I am thrilled to say our Painted Orchid invitation set was featured in the Summer issue.  WOW what an honor! I was asked to create a green and fuchsia ensemble based on Tara’s design, hand-picked by the Editor herself…can you say, gulp (I did when the call came in from Leila)?  I immediately contacted my friends at Envelopments® and they were gracious enough to create a custom Pocketfold® in one of their newest stocks – Raw Silk Gold Cabana!  Within days I had 4 expertly crafted Pocketfolds® in my  hands and […]

After a rainy weekend and dreary few days to follow, the sun is finally shining here in Northeast PA!  How appropriate since today I am sharing my very sunny collaboration with Good Life Events and Llanes Photography!  Recently Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured this concept shoot on her very lovely blog! Ready for a vacation right?  I know I am!  The caspian napkins and those jade green vases let you know immediately you are in store for a color experience.  Oh and those peach carnations were the perfect choice to allow the other colors to really sing! I love […]
