they say it's your birthay?

I wouldn't know. I forget everyone's birthday. I'm notoriously thoughtful, but I'm so busy I never know when birthdays are coming. I'm awful. I'd love an electronic birthday device that goes of a week before a friends birthday so I can shop. (Genius.)
I found the cutest birthday book online which will now hopefully keep me on gift giving, card sending and phone calling track. By the adorable Carrot and Stick Press!

pretty in pink

So much support. Thanks everyone for the lovely emails! I can't wait to meet everyone and share the new work.
Also thanks to Edtya and Amy for posting about the shows on their blogs!

My new business cards came in today just in time for my travels. They are so pretty in pink.

Also pretty in pink some of my favorite photos from a fashion inspiration, Erin Fetherston.
I'd die to wear one of these pieces to the show. wow.

Coat update

Still working on the nursery commission, but will post when its finished. Getting a few things finalized for the NY show- and will be posting the info for the 2nd show soon too!
Wanted to give you a coat update! For new followers: I designed a coat. In fact I designed a coat and then won a fashion design contest at vaute couture and now the coat is being sold nationwide this upcoming season.
Here is a sneak peek from the photo shoot. When vaute couture gives me the okay I'll show you more!

Since we are talking fashion today. Check out these bad boys I found over at urban. You need the perfect dress to style them or they could go terribly wrong. How would you wear these?

nursey commisson

New business cards finally arrived- will post soon so you can give some input. Glad you liked my flea market finds. I've been dabbling in personal shopping and styling these days and I was happy to see that my interior finds were just as well liked! xo
Today I am working on a commission for a modern nursery. I don't have a little one yet- and lord help my bank account when i do. So for inspiration I am using my favorite site b braithwaite.

since we're talking about kid, which never happens on this blog, check out littlefishbigpond's & mylittlesister's etsy for great baby gifts too.

if you have a baby- and are a modern mom, feel free to leave some cute illustration ideas below that you'd like to have on your wall!

flea market finds

During my travels recently I stumbed upon a flea market. Found these great glasses which I got for $2- for the set. AND this cute fan which still works for $7.

Great day for under $10. This weekend I need to find two more presentation books that are not quite as expensive as the one I bought below. If I can find white/ or gray... I'd be happier than standard black. I'll be bringing 3 to my shows and already have the one below. Any suggestions?
