letters for baby caroline

One of my favorite children’s books of all time is Eric Carle’s, The Very Hungry Caterpillar… so I was very excited to receive a request to paint letters inspired by the book!
These letters were to be given as a gift to a brand new baby, Caroline, whose nursery was decorated with Pottery Barn Kid’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar crib bedding. I was very inspired by the primary colors & painterly quality of the book’s illustrations so tried to convey that with these letters.

turquoise earrings for beautiful bridesmaids

My awesome friends Kate & TJ got married this summer in their hometown in Canada. Kate wanted to give her beautiful bridesmaids a very special gift that they would be able to enjoy after their wedding day. Kate decided that earrings would be a great gift for her girls, so we worked together to find the perfect turquoise stones to complement their pretty buttercup yellow dresses.
We chose these awesome turquoise Howlite slab style stones. Each stone is unique, so I paired stones that were a similar size to make pairs.

put a {neon} bird on it!

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!

whimsical chevron baby sower invitations

I designed these special Baby Shower Invitations at the request of the awesome host, Lyndsay. The gender of the baby was a surprise… so I used the color palette from the crib bedding that the parents-to-be chose for their little one!

purple paisley for baby hadley

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!

maddie’s paisley & stripe letters

As many of you know, we move around more than the average family! Hopping around from country to country obviously has its benefits, but there are few quirky little draw backs along the way too! Long story short, we just received boxes of our personal items from our ‘2011-12 hockey season home in Malmö Sweden, to our home this year in Augsburg Germany… after a 7 month wait!
Unpacking the boxes we discovered Maddie’s 2nd set of letters, that I made for her bedroom in Sweden. I realized that I rarely post things that I make for her! I created these to match her pink paisley Pottery Barn bedding. Whoa! That was a lot of P’s in one sentence!

Just finished up some pretty pastel letters painted for Baby Leyla. Chevron stripes are very on trend now & they look super cute paired with polka dots!
The font & style of the letter is new too! They can sit on a shelf or hang on the wall.

the magical amalfi coast

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!!

wine cork wreaths

I love to do custom orders! These are two custom ordered Wine Cork Wreaths, that I created recently. Both of these wreaths are perfect to display year round! I love the preppy look of the simple wreath with yellow ribbon & the classic look of the black.
