Every once and awhile I get a request to do one of these. I thought it would be easier if I just added a few to my Etsy store for easy ordering. These are not hard to make at all and add a nice personal touch to dress photos. I also have a ton of

I’ve seen tons of lettering videos on the iPad and I’ve wanted to try it for so long. I found an excuse to go to an Apple store last year and play on one to see if I’d even like it. Here was the very first thing I did on an iPad in an Apple

Settle in, this post might get really long. I want to share with you the week my family and I spent in Cuba this year. Also, I tried something a little different with my photos, so they posted not as HIGH of a resolution as I’d have liked, but you can see some more in

28Apr

In January, I took a frame weaving class and I am kinda obsessed. The process of weaving is so theraputic. I am giving the last one I made away to my little brother and his girlfriend, so to replace it I created this one. I am still getting used to making them and started this

When the photographer Rachael reached out to me, I was worried I wouldn’t have enough time to help her out for this photo shoot. Luckily, I had a lazy Saturday to fill and knocked out ome invitations, place cards and cocktails recipes just in time. I love when people reach out to work on things

I made these for Easter this weekend. I did a bunch of lettering last year for the 30 days of Bible lettering challenge and loved the project. I really need to try to do the same thing again sometime this year. But for now, two simple ones.

I took my weaving class last month and loved it. My first little weavings left something to be desired, however. They were small testers that we made in class to learn the tricks and patterns. I started my first real one the day I got home from class. First I drew out some pattern ideas.

I am so excited to share this with you all. I was asked to help with this styled shoot by the photographer, Erin Kling. She and I went to college together in Harrisonburg and I am so thankful she held on to my name for an event like this. The amount of work Erin and

Over the past four weeks, I took a frame weaving class at the Visual Art Center. I wanted to take this for so long but haven’t been able to find a suitable time, but this winter, I made it work. I planned four weekends in a row in Richmond, something I never do, just to

Every year I make a new set of Valentine’s day cards. I tend to lead a First Friday workshop at the art center where I teach and it’s always a perfect project to do with a new group of students. This year, I tried a few different things before settling on this lock up. It
