Summer Break

Monday, June 29th, 2015

The family is off on a road trip today, we’re headed across California to Las Vegas to finish up a the last few spaces around the house before my dear Aunt moves in. It will be our last trip there for some time.

There are a lot of details to wrap up on this house we’ve been remodeling for the past year. This is a “working” vacation since there are many project that await, but not really work when you love what you do. :)

I’ll be installing my dream backsplash in the kitchen and another in the master bathroom, follow along behind the scenes on Instagram for a few sneak peeks as we complete the finishing touches. I’ll have a few more transformed spaces to share with you in July, and I’ll be back this Friday with another link roundup.

Have a wonderful week !

Spring Break

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

Hi everyone. It’s late in the day but I wanted to pop in to say I’m taking this week off for Spring Break. I go offline every few months, it helps me recharge and avoid burn out. I’m here in Las Vegas catching some rays for a few days but I’m working too, just not online. I’m photographing the final prints for the spring fabric collection and it’s coming together so well, I’m excited to share the new patterns with you next week.

creativity takes courage matisse


This quote resonates with me right now since it is takes bravery to present your original designs to the world. You’ve got to trust in yourself to express your personal style, and I’m a big believer in putting yourself out there come what may – creativity does take courage. And isn’t the world much more interesting with artists that do just that? I think so. :)

I’ll be back next week with much to share, see you then.
