Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price,
bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe,
to assure the survival and success of liberty.

So I hosted a TOMS event...and oh, my.
I've held a lot...A LOT...of art camps, but the STYLE YOUR SOLE session this past week just went down as the mother of all projects in the history of projects. My eleven little artists and I had so much fun creating the most unique pairs of TOMS you'll ever lay eyes on. We pulled out paints and markers, brushes and sponges...and a big ol' box where we splattered and slung paint from toe to heal. The best part?! There were eleven beautiful kids miles and miles from our home sweet home in Kentucky who's feet were just as happy as ours. Join the ONE FOR ONE movement! Your feet (and heart) will thank you. xoxo

Two weeks without a post?! Sorry friends! I've been up to my eyeballs in studio renovations (pics coming soon) SPROUT summer art camp (the kids are having some crazy fun), event design, and graphic jobs galore. All good things, but it's been enough to make my head spin. I'm ok with being dizzy, but I'd much rather it be after a few drinks, not a few all nighters. Soooooo, I'm back, and hopefully will remain that way. The photos above were taken from a recent (awesome) art camp project...love. These abstracts were done by 4, 5, and 6 year olds...total freedom. They taught me a thing or two. Be back tomorrow! Promise.

A new paper shop discovery! Don't you just love bumping into treasures online? I can't exactly remember how I came across the Belle and Union Co., but I'm sure glad I did. Created by a Southern gal and her husband after purchasing an old printing press, Belle and Union designs notecards, jotters, patterned paper, and lots more. I feel like just about anything that comes from the lovely town of Savannah is something worth noticing. Art seems to ooze from every corner down there. Makes me want to pack a bag and book a trip...and buy some stationery.

Is it almost Memorial Day?!?!? Can't believe that May has performed a serious disappearing act. LOVE this holiday! It's the official, unofficial start to summer...even though my boys have been out of school for almost a week now. I'm in festive overdrive, keeping very busy with event design and setting up my new studio. Lots to share in the next few weeks!

Introducing my new little obsession...the clutch! Seems like I'm seeing them everywhere. They're certainly not appropriate for everyday or every occasion, but maybe that's why I love them so much. If I'm in need on a little something to throw my gloss and phone in for the day/night, then there's a pretty good chance that I'm headed somewhere fun. With cocktails.

Say what?!?! Minted has introduced a huge line of art prints! It's official. There's absolutely no excuses for not having something pretty on your wall. The selection is crazy diverse...for the modern lover, the traditional gal, and everyone in between...and the prices are perfection. I've shown just a handful of my faves, but there's lots more to see. Check them out (it's gonna make your day).
