The new collection has hit the shop and is a celebration of springtime renewal and an ode to the bohemian lifestyle. It includes 25+ new greeting card designs with southwestern and moroccan influences and features a combination of botanical illustrations and tribal patterns. It's artful, yet subdued and will add a modern touch to your correspondence.
As the seasons change, so do the colors and images that I am inspired by. The progression of it is pretty evident in my pinterest feed as wintery neutrals are gradually replaced by springtime hues. As a long-time color-phobe, this time of year has always proven to be very refreshing and when I tend to embrace color the most, both in my wardrobe and my designs. Right now I am especially drawn to a combination of sage and dusty rose with skin tones. I’ve been experimenting with them a lot lately and plan on incorporating them into my upcoming product release.
Happy first day of spring! I noticed some green starting to pop out of the ground yesterday and I did a little happy dance. I am looking forward to when everything is in full bloom and plan to reintroduce these pretty cards into my rotation to celebrate the occasion. Meanwhile, I've been working on lots of flowery things, which will be making their way onto new products debuting next month. I can't wait to reveal it all and encourage you to sign up for my newsletter so you can be the first to know when they hit the shop.
Over the years, Valentine's Day has taken on a new meaning for me. I now view it as a day to celebrate love in all it's forms as compared to the stress-inducing nightmare it was during my high school and college days. It's become a day filled with simple and maybe even slightly indulgent pleasures. Handwritten notes to friends and family and a romantic home-cooked meal with Travis have become the new norm.
Regardless of how and whom you celebrate with, here are a few of my picks to make this Valentine's Day even sweeter. It includes items from a few of my favorite makers as well as a few splurge-worthy goods for yourself...because we could all practice a little more self-love.
1. Set the tone with this vanilla and lavender candle from Simply Curated
2. Treat yourself to this dreamy blush wallet from Cuyana
3. Add some sparkle with this moonstone cuff from Lindsay Lewis
4. Surprise him with this lacy bralette from COS
5. Add some humor to your morning routine with this boob mug from And Here We Are
6. Send love notes with these modern cards from Evermore Paper Co.
7. Enjoy a little r&r with this replenishing salt soak from Palermo Body
As I begin to dream up new ideas for my next collection, I feel like a sponge trying to soak up everything around me. I get into these phases where I see inspiration everywhere and suddenly can't keep up with my ideas. Let's be honest, this is an awesome spot to be in as an artist. Right now I am especially drawn to rich palettes, brushstroke patterns and irregular shapes. With that said, I think it's safe to say that my new designs will be exploding with abstract details.
Here's a peek at some of the artists that I am currently inspired by:
