Anne and Kelli Palm Springs Wedding

It was such a treat working with client's Anne and Kelli this summer while they planned their wedding in Palm Springs. The color pallet came together beautifully! What a gorgeous location.

Anne designed their travel-ticket themed invite and I printed the invites for them. Anne and Kelli came over the day of printing and participated in final ink selections and took a couple of turns at the press with my guidance. I always invite my local clients over to participate if you're interested. 

Thank you to Randy and Ashley Studios for sharing the beautiful images with us.
You can see the full wedding here .  As well, if you scroll to the bottom, all of the talented vendors are listed if you'd like to book something for yourself. 

Getting Christmas Engaged?
Make sure to book your invitations early... I only take on a handful of wedding clients a year due to schedule restrictions with my greeting line and other corporate clients!

The real vote is here

I did not realize there were so many candy corn haters in the world till recently. I mean, Candy Corn? It's the waxy, sugary candy Grandma keeps in the candy dish. How can you hate on Grandma's candy dish?

Gummy Bear Heaven

I've been itching to do more videos and collaborations. So hopefully in the future you'll see more fun projects like this. I was fortunate to be introduced to Erina Murata by a friend. She lives in Japan, I live here but I sent her a message and said I love your work! Let's do something together. She said YES! and voilé.

You can find Erina's work on the Social @muumenna

Before and After: Jami Snow Skincare

Extreme Makeover: The office version ;)

my office buddy next door to me is also a friend of 30 years. She hasn't been feeling well lately and needed a spruce up of her skincare space so I planned a takeover attack. With friends and family involved I took donations and stealth-like asked her what color she would want to paint and other little details. She didn't know that I was plotting to pounce when she took a few days off in a row.

Day 2 painting and curtains are back up after washing

we couldn't change out the flooring so we opted for inexpensive cork panels to cover up carpet

The Final RESULTS!

BEHR paint - Minted, curtains and shelves - Ikea, Temporary wall paper - Chasing Paper, Console Table - Home Goods, the art / macrame piece is pending. I'm not crazy about it so we're going to take it down and rework it somehow.

Entry way near front door has the same matching paper from Chasing Paper and an Ikea mirror
and small shelf for clients to prep themselves before leaving from their facials and other appointments.

She was so surprised and excited for her new, calm and beautiful space. I'm so excited I could pull it off for her! We blended some of her original artwork and pieces into the finished room so that it felt like her space but still freshened up.

Shoe swoon

I've always been a shoe whore, but the last few years of back troubles I have to swoon from a far. I'm pretty much relegated to specialty clogs now, an occasional regular pair but nothing with a heel any more and nothing with a leather sole, I have to have a rubber sole to make it work. 

I miss heels. I miss feeling chic and sexy in them and catching all the great sales [um Barney's Warehouse is an extra 40-50% off right now] 

Here are a few pairs that have been added to my Pinterest shoe board as of late.

New Product! Grocery Shop like a BOSS!

This Grocery Shopping list is a selfish product. I really needed it for myself!

This notepad is 5.5" 8.5" and is set up in coordination with Trader Joes™ shopping Isles. If you don't have a TJ's nearby don't be disheartened, this organized list can be used in any grocery store.

Divided into categories, this list is separated out so that you don't forget a thing at the market anymore. My mom use to make her shopping lists this way and I have carried on the tradition. I really created this product out my own needs and getting in and out of the store fast and efficiently.

Each notepad has 50 sheets which is nearly 1 full year of weekly grocery store trips! And because we all love those errands so much, I made the list as perky and as fun as possible.

Available now in the shop
