  • Missing In Action While Summer Days Drifted Away..

  • So admittedly, I have been lacking with the blog posts and Instagram updates. In my defense, I've had some pretty consuming projects occupying my time. However, during this time away and so called "hiatus", I've had much time to think. Gain some new perspective so to speak. Now, I'm not trying to get philosophical and [...]
  • Ruffle My Feathers...

  • In a previous post I shared how I am new to the sewing community and I've never really successfully sewn anything. I suppose all it had to take for me to get seriously interested and committed was the right fabric along with the right challenge! Kids Clothes Week does a competition every season with a theme. This Apri[...]
  • Something Outside The Box..

  • OK! So I'm trying something new that is very much outside my box of comfort, expertise and perhaps even talent! But it just sounds so fun that I just have to try my hand at it. A very good friend of mine Kerstin, who is extremely talented at sewing and knitting (and basically anything along those lines!) has been tr[...]
  • Green Apple Jewelry Collab

  • I am so thrilled to announce my collaboration with LITTLE GREEN APPLE JEWELRY! I had the pleasure of meeting the talent and charm behind this local designer, Mary Ann and her daughter Courtney. These two ladies are the perfect yin and yang team! Jam packed with raw talent that is clean and simple, I was instantly capti[...]
  • Accessories

  • Now the trouble that I've always had is accessorizing in the winter. With big bulky sweaters and coats, I found myself not wanting to wear much for jewelry and watches. I hated hiking up sweaters to catch the time..and Hand bags became obsolete because lets face it, schlepping 4 kids and a hand bag in the winter was NO[...]
  • Helmut Lang Handcuff Bracelet

  • So this neat little piece of jewelry was a Christmas gift from my dear friend at Helmut Lang. Previously I shared my story about how I came to be friends with the manager at the HL store in Soho. Little did I know that we'd continue to maintain this friendship for well over a year now. So apparently only a few select [...]
  • Meet The Models

  • I realized that after all this time I have never formally introduced any of my models! As I have mentioned in a previous post, I don't feel that I am the subject of this blog. The focus is my free expression of art represented in my core style. So I selected a few to help me... ~Taylor~ This young lady is one of t[...]

  • Vignettes/ Lazy Days

  • Our lives are so busy we hardly have real "days off" where we can sit, lounge and just hang. Between our restaurant, homeschooling the children, and church responsibilities we're always on the go.  This was a rare occasion for us, where we had the chance to just enjoy a day home together as a family. The boys absolutel[...]
