DJ Update Again

Now that you know all about Willow & Shea I'm excited to announce their POP UP shop is opening next week in Greenwich, CT.  If you are anywhere near CT it is going to be worth it to stop in!  These little post cards are hitting the town today all around Putnam Ave.  Let me know if you spot one!

DJ update

Sometimes I like to post about my day job because, I LOVE my day job.  I work with the most beautiful and creative people who are producing amazing products and curating for the good.

I recently worked the St. Louis Fashion Week Butik with Willow & Shea.  It is an online boutique where you can shop for a cause and donate a percentage of your sale to the charity of your choice.  How cool is that?

I did not do any merchandising but I did get to learn a lot about the Willow & Shea brand while familiarizing myself with the products.

Items are curated all over the US, supporting small businesses, artisans, and green products.

If you want to bond with your daughter or give a girlfriend the next big thing, it is temporary tattoo jewelry.  It sold like crazy while we were there.  We only had a few left and they are coming to the website soon!

Fall Paper Goods

During my watercolor painting kick I got inspired and started to mix all of these fun fall colors.  There is an artist that I admire who is always sketching with black ink and then going back in to paint with watercolors.  I wanted to try out some of her method here.  I came up with some fall party paper goods with geometric shapes and a floral design.
Above are some food labels.  I just cut inside the gray lines and fold them over in the center.  This way your labels can be double sided and you can mix and match the floral with the geometric sides.

I always cut inside the gray outline here and tape two together with a toothpick in between as another food label.  Or you can hole punch it once at the top and another at the bottom and insert a straw and use it as a name tag for drinks!

Of course I had to have two different options for cupcake wrappers.  The background is a natural watercolor paper texture to give some interest to the fall or thanksgiving table scape.  To print off your own high quality pictures you can purchase them at my etsy site here.

The spirit of it all

The older I get the more I like Halloween.  Part of it, is having the CUTEST little neighbors and I look forward to them trick-or-treating at my house every year!  And now thanks to Pinterest, Halloween decorations are getting much cuter and more in line with my style.

I may be a little late this year, but I'm starting to get into the Spirits of Halloween...  Click the links below to download these desktop wallpapers!

All About that Bass Pastel

I know I keep talking about Meghan Trainor's song All About that Bass.  I'm working on getting some extra printables to match this as well!  So be on the look out there!

The style of her video is so simplistic and fun.  The colors are girly and vibrant, so I decided to make a party invitation that has that same look and feel.

Here is a clip from the video...

The color in this picture is some how a little brighter than it really is on the invite.  You can see a birthday invite here, and a bachelorette invite here.

All about that Bass: Part 2

I'm all about that bass....
Well at least the cute paper goods / accessories.  Aren't these printables the cutest?  I'm all about adding to the party.  Get it?

I love excuses to use my tiny vintage plates that never seem practical to use for any occasion.  I guess the non-practicality is what makes them decorative and adorable.

I also like all the possibilities with just a few different paper goods that can be used in so many different ways.

You can find my printables here...

First Attempt

I got to hang out with my new niece Harvie the other day and happened to have my camera around.  It was the first time that I've ever taken pictures of babies and man, was it hard.  I have new respect for newborn/baby/child photographers.  

I think I'll stick to product.  It doesn't cry at me!
