My mailbox has been filling up lately with September issues of my favorite fashion magazines. One noticeable trend - embroidery! It's everywhere! I couldn't think of a better time to launch my collection of hand embroidered wall art than at the same time that embroidery is seeing a resurgence in fashion.
Here are some beautiful items I've come across online...I would love to have them in my closet!

On the hunt for a good magazine basket, I was perusing some of my favorite home sites recently and found myself oogling and bookmarking a number of desktop accessories. I'm always looking for ways to upgrade my desk space and thought I'd share a few favorite finds.

When I am not in my studio working, I find myself out and about on a hiking trail here in Southwest Colorado. The wildflowers have been in peak form lately - perhaps blooming a little later this summer due to late spring rains - and I can't help but snap photos of them while I'm on a trial. Here's some beauties I've come across over the past month.
I'm thrilled to announce the launch of my collection of hand embroidered artwork. This has been a labor of love and a project that I have been working on for many months. After sharing a lot of my work on Instagram, it's great to finally have products available for sale!
The USPS is at it again! Time for one of my favorite round-ups: brand new stamps for sale. Since my last post, the USPS has added a handful of fun new stamps. I love buying my stamps online - there's never a line, they always have every style in stock, and it arrives in my mailbox a few days later!

When I first launched my paper goods collection, I primarily worked with ink and all of my cards were based on my own hand illustrations. This year I have begun to incorporate more painting into my work (read more about it here) and have really enjoyed the process of conceptualizing new design ideas that will be painted.
My preferred medium is gouache, a type of paint that is kind of like a cross between watercolor and acrylic. My paintings are pretty free flow - I don't plan out what I'm going to paint and just see where it takes me. With this new collection of cards, I tended to gravitate towards bright rainbow hues and lots of florals. You can shop the new collection here.
