The Summit of Awesome

Today I will be attending the Summit of Awesome. 
It has finally come to Baltimore and I am so excited, 
and even a little nervous to be honest. I can't wait to 
report back the happenings of awesome that occurred!

The Summit of Awesome was more Awesome that 
expected, I met some really great and talented people 
and learned a tremendous amount. 

Things about Copyright and Trademark {I soaked that in 
like it was the sun and I wanted a BURN!} it was good 
information from an intellectual property lawyer. 

And Social Media. I think I will ReEnter the world of 
Twitter thanks to Willowtoons and Lish and their great 
talk on social media. 

I heard from Biggs & Featherbelle and Figs &
Ginger about wholesaling (wow have 
they grown and they are getting bigger and bigger)

And Danielle from Etsy, if you 'Etsy' I am sure you've seen
 Danielle, well she was there and gave us all some great 
information on how to utilize Etsy to its fullest potential to 
have the greatest success. Contact me if you want some 
tidbits, I am happy to spread the word

And in the moments when there was no class to sit in on 
we crafted (how fun) so there were no moments of awkward 
silence between strangers, just fun crafty moments of creativity 
between artists. I highly recommend hopping on board for 
next years summt!

I'll be there!


A Veil or not a Veil?

Would you ever consider wearing a colored veil?
I wasn't 100% behind the veil idea but I did want something
to spruce up my hair. 

Than I stumbled across that image up top 
of the beautiful bride with the scarf in her hair... amazing. 
Right?! Couldn't you imagine an outdoor wedding with a 
really beautiful handpainted scarf in your hair. {Than you 
can wear it again and again too!} I like the first one listed 
the best. Any thoughts?

PS. You can find more beautifully hand painted scarves 
at Silk Couture by Takuyo have fun!


Kiki and Polly

Just some more reasons that we LOVE Kiki & Polly, and their
 amazing art. I adore those colors. I want our wedding to be the
colors of the bottom painting... {xox}

Sketchbook Scans

I stumbled upon Design Instruct's 50 beautiful Sketchbook Scans
this morning and I had to share some of them. Taking a page out of some 
sketchbooks is like diving into another universe. I love seeing the way 
some artist's minds work... 
 Allen Sutton
 David Fullarton
 Joshua Philippe
 Mattias Adolfsson
And a couple from my sketchbook, just to throw in the mix. 

And a page from my talented grandmother's sketchbook. {xox}


Heart Umbrella


Halloween Costume

What are you dressing you as for halloween this year. 
I think having a little baby to dress up is going to be 
the most fun ever! Look how adorable this grouch is!



Inspired by Steve Jobs and his amazing persistence....
here is a note from Pixar. 

Imagine if Steve Jobs had given up after being fired
from Apple... No Pixar, No iPod, iPad, iTunes, iPhone he 
changed the world. That was persistant. 

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Steve Jobs

Please don't forget to Persist. Think of the alternative.
