Silk and Velvet...

Really love these new scarves I have been working on.  Silk cut velvet paired with hand-dyed silk.

There's No Place Like...


Loving this little shoe from L.L.Bean Signature! 
Just can't decide which color I like best, kind of want them all :)

A Stone's Throw...

Just found these amazing 'stone' pillows on etsy.
In the right room these would look SO cool!  Ironically, they look super cozy.
Loving these!

This year my dad decided to send out Thanksgiving cards to his business clients in lieu of the traditional holiday / Christmas cards.  I  think it's a nice idea!

So I was commissioned by my dad to make the Thanksgiving cards.  I researched mostly vintage post cards (my go-to when researching).  Somehow the turkeys, pumpkins, pilgrims, etc. weren't working for me..
This is what I came up with:

About Me

My photo
All of my items are hand crafted by me in my Brooklyn, NY studio. I believe in USA hand made, supporting local, and supporting quality. All materials I use are sourced and purchased from vendors in the USA. I truly am inspired so much by nature. Just walk outside and there's millions of things to be inspired by, whether city or country. At different points in my life, or year, or day I can look at the same thing and see it in a completely new way. I realize Im not the first person to be inspired by nature, but I find it amazing how we can all be inspired so uniquely by it. I am a pretty practical person; I feel designs should have form AND function. I USE all of my designs to ensure ease of use, aesthetic appeal, and versatility. If at the end of the day I don't love it, it goes back to the drawing board; or on the back burner; or just tossed on the 'prototype' pile. I also make sure all my designs are items I personally would love to give as gifts.
