My awesome friends Sarah & Tom got married this summer. Sarah & Tom are a wonderful couple who met in Washington DC. They wanted to add a little bit of inspiration from the place they met to their wedding reception, so they named each of their tables after DC Metro stops.
I created this Seating Chart for their guests to “find their metro stop”. It was displayed framed on an easel in the entrance way to the dining room. The beautiful images were done by Sarah & Tom’s wonderful wedding photographer Anna Simonak, you can check out more of her work on her website. The Table Identities were modeled after the columns found outside of the DC Metro Stops. We combined the blue wedding color theme with the typefaces that were used throughout the wedding stationary to modify the tradition look of the DC Metro stop signage.
It was an amazing day to celebrate the amazing couple, I was so honored to have been able to be a small part of their special day!

My good friend, Ali, asked me to paint something special for her brother & sister-in-law who are expecting a sweet baby girl in the Spring. They hadn’t completely committed to a name for their soon to babe… so Ali asked me to paint a couple of extra letters so they could mix and match between the two names that they were debating (Ruby & Ellory).
I love the outcome of these particular letters! They incorporate so many design elements that I LOVE; bold bright color, graphical pattern, & awesome contrast!
This was another fun long distance request from a wonderful friend back in The States! Mommy Amy sent me pictures of Baby Hadley’s nursery & instructed me to go ahead & do whatever I wanted! I created these letters to match her lovely Brooklyn Pottery Barn Kids bedding. Check out the inspiration pictures of Baby Hadley’s nursery & the finished letters below!
I forgot to mention that for Baby Hadley’s letters I kept track of a few things I get asked about from time to time, so here are your fun facts for the day… I used 5 custom mixed colors and 20 different paintbrushes for the 6 letters of Hadley’s name! I welcome you to contact me if you would like something custom designed for you!
I feel a little extra patriotic when I’m living abroad. To decorate our “home away from home” this season in Germany, I decided to add a little American spirit! I painted bold, graphic designs on letters to sit on our living room shelves. They appropriately frame our giant black & white photo of Manhattan Island. I welcome you to contact me if you would like your very own custom painted letters!
My family & I were fortunate to take a little November vacay in Italy. It was the perfect time of year to visit the Amalfi Coast! Tourist season had just ended, that means no lines or crowds, & the weather was perfect! We had lots of fun enjoying the black volcanic sand beach in Positano & the incredible beauty of the Island of Capri. We seriously enjoyed everything we ate too! The freshness of the ingredients was something that can’t be experienced anywhere else… takes delicious Italian food to an entirely new level!
Here are some pieces of brightly colored sea glass & tumbled tile pieces that I collected from the beach in Positano. I am so excited to add these materials to my global collection!!
The Little Beauty in a perfectly beautiful place!

This bracelet is one of my personal favorites! Maybe its the story behind how I acquired the materials I used to make it… While we were living in Zürich, Switzerland my husband & I were able to do lots of traveling! We were on a little Italian adventure & found ourselves happily “lost” in Venice, Italy. On a side canal I found an adorable bead shop! Although Venice is known for their incredible glass, this shop had a little bit of everything, all made locally! I couldn’t leave without stocking up on some incredibly unique materials!
The fun square striped resin beads, which I found in Venice are accented with Austrian Swarovski Crystals. The bracelet is closed with an adjustable length toggle clasp. If you are interested in making this bracelet yours, you can purchase it here from my Etsy Shop! I welcome you to contact me if you are interested in having me create something special for you!
