Portland Bride and Groom- Project Wedding

Yesterday was the best! I cleaned my studio and got everything back into order after the West Elm show madness, dropped goodies off at The Crafty Wonderland Store, and when I got to Ink & Peat for a pillow delivery the owner gave me two copies of Portland Bride and Groom with my "Project Wedding" feature! I created three cake toppers and collaborated on one more (the wooden dreamy one is from Julie at Studio Olivine- very cute!) for the article.
I was so excited to see this feature and am even more excited that my hand stitched cake toppers (the large top picture) will available for custom order soon in my shop and featured at St. Cupcake here in Portland.

The West Elm show

I had a great day yesterday, the show was such a personal and professional success for me.  I accomplished what I set out to do and nothing feels better than that, no matter what the challenge. And I could not have done this with out the support of my amazing husband, Dane for making some fantastic suggestions and also my best friend and silent partner Sarah- she helped me with every aspect of this show and yesterday was no exception. It was wonderful toasting with a much deserved cocktail and sharing dinner with her last night.

Here are some photos of my booth at the event. THANK YOU WEST ELM! If you want me to design a collection for you give me a call...

Closet Visit

If you love clothes and people's personal style then this blog is going to blow your mind.  Closet Visit is like snooping in on the closets of all of the best best dressed girls in LA.


I do not even think I realized how much I loved clothes (AND SHOES)  myself before I started writing this blog...anyway- check it out. It's dreamy and inspiring me to take more chances.  This woman Bo is especially killing me.

No Sleep till Brooklyn

I am in the thick of prepping for the West Elm show this Saturday, here is a sneak peek of what I will be bringing to the show.  It has been really important for me to create a completely unique collection for this show, everything is new and it has been a blast.  I could write on and on about how preparing for this show has helped me grow as an artist and come closer to my dreams, but I am so tired I think this iPhone pic will have to do.
Good night!

Oh, and there will be hoodies...I just haven't made all those yet:)

From from this moment forward my style mantra is WWJBD? "What Would Jane Birkin Do?".  French bohemian gamine...does it get any better?
