Just before the holidays, I was happy to be asked to host a Minted Craft Night here in NYC, where bloggers, crafters and Mintie designers alike could get together and play with Minted‘s new fabric line! It was a lovely night spent at Little Owl, full of crafting inspiration boards using the fabric line, then decorating them with holiday cards and ephemera. It was amazing to see how creative all these ladies (and gent!) were with designing their boards!
The fabric line itself is great, with over 200 designs in multiple color and fabric weights, perfect for using in home decor, crafting, for weddings and baby showers, even furoshiki style gift wrapping! I can’t wait to use more of them in projects this year!

Welcome back everyone and happy 2015!! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see some bright colors this year, and this shoot is the perfect kick off towards that goal. I do love a good geometric pop when it comes to weddings!!
Miami Meets Mid-Century Modern
Situated on one of the most iconic beaches in the world The James Royal Palm in Miami Beach hosted this mid-century inspired shoot. While I specialize mostly in wedding stationery and paper goods, I also love to style and art direct. The goal was to showcase my design aesthetic, and love for mid-century and contemporary designs. I felt it was important to stay true to the dynamic and culture that is unique to Miami. Another major source of inspiration for the shoot was Ray and Charles Eames, husband and wife-duo, furniture designers.
Charles Eames was once said “At all times, love and discipline have led to a beautiful environment and good life.” I believe in this quote whole-heartedly, as this is something I put into practice everyday in the studio.
The majority of the shoot took place in the South Shore Lounge and Florida Cookery Patio.
We were also fortunate enough to have a special dish prepared by the talented team at FCP.
