Hey, I can't believe it's summer already. Well, not quite, but this weekend is Memorial Day, and isn't that the beginning of summer? It's a beautiful day here in NYC, so the anticipation is building. And what is better than daydreaming about a summer in Santorini? How nice to be included in this round up of beautiful blue and white items that grace the page. (I love those sandals.) Thank you so much @oprahmagazine and @therealadamsays for the shout out!
I recently came across an article in the Huffington Post regarding the benefits of journaling, and how it can lead to a more productive and better life. It reminds me of "The Artists Way" by Julia Cameron, and if you aren't familiar with her work, I highly recommend her books and website. My sister gave me her book and workbook and I truly believe her process of journaling allowed me to reconnect and develop my creativity again. I find when I journal I am allowing myself to empty my mind of extraneous, mundane thoughts that clutter and distract me. I know we all have things to do and to be honest, life can get overwhelming (running my business, as well as design and...
I'm a little mad for Shibori. I can't help it. The process of folding and dyeing, and then seeing the patterns develop are exciting and super addictive. I am learning some new techniques while also using indigo dye, which is kind of a beast. Really messy, lots of water and dye everywhere, but the end result is extremely satisfying. I hope you enjoy the variety of patterns, which are currently only on journals and tea towels so far. I'm having a blast working through developing my process and colors. More to come!
What a nice way to start the week! One Kings Lane is having a pillow centric moment on their site, and look who made the pile. I love the shot- it is so inviting, and it inspires me to work on a pile (or two) of my own. I love lifestyle imagery- it is more about taking a dream and making it a reality. It's wonderful to be in the mix on One Kings Lane, they are such a beautiful decor destination and I'm so happy to be invited to the party! https://www.onekingslane.com/sales/66677
I am really excited about our coverage in the April issue of Vogue magazine. Such an honor to be included in their "People are talking about" section. It feels good to see my babies on the page. They are really some of my favorite patterns- I love the feather, and I have a green version coming up in the shop. I am also fond of the Bubbly Chevron shown in greens and daffodil, which was really fun drawing all of those little blobs in pen and ink. I have been developing some new color ways using these patterns, so I'll keep you posted in the shop for new colors and styles. Thank you Vogue!
