Heres just a smattering of the artwork and products I have available for sale in my shop.
















I took the same drawing and recreated using 3 different mediums; Colored Pencil, Ink, and Watercolor Marker.


Some of the prints also make pretty darn cute throw pillows.




or even tote bags too.

12 Dreamy Laundry Rooms {that can actually make doing laundry enjoyable.}

Ah Laundry Room. The room you hate to love and love to hate. 

It's laundry day at my house, and my laundry room is definitely a room I love to hate. Mainly because its long, narrow, is not very functional, and its just plain ugly. Frankly I've had enough of it and its time for a renovation. So in between loads, I've been surfing Pinterest looking for for some design inspiration to create a space that I actually enjoy doing laundry in!

DIY Felted Ball Mobile

Last December, we were blessed with a new addition to our family! My sister gave birth to sweet baby boy, and my boys were over the moon to FINALLY have a first cousin. I knew I wanted to make something special for his nursery, so when my sister mentioned a felt ball mobile she saw and really liked, I jumped on the chance to DIY one for him. 


How awesome is that feature wall! His entire nursery is magazine worthy, and I promise I will snap some more pics of it and take you on a tour next time I visit.

In the meantime, I'm going to give you a quick tutorial on how to make your own felted ball mobile for your baby (or nephew!) Its really quite easy. The whole project took me only about an hour.

Trendy Tuesday ~ Pantone's Color(s) of The Year 2016

I always look forward to hearing what Pantone dubs their "Color of the Year" as its usually right on trend with whats happening in the world of fashion and decor, and its a great way to start my Trendy Tuesday series for the year. Past colors of the year have included Marsala (2015), Radiant Orchid (2014), Emerald (2013) and Tangerine Tango (2012).  This year was a big surprise as Pantone announced for the first time ever not only one, but two colors of the year! They are Rose Quartz and Serenity.


The warm pink and cool blue tones are a match made in heaven. I've actually been crushing on blush tones for a while now so I'm tickled pink (ha! get it?! Corny I know...couldn't resist) about this years choice.

Lets take a look at how these two colors are being used together in interiors.

A year in review with Graham and Brown

I started on the journey of becoming an brand ambassador for Graham & Brown back in July, and it's hard to believe the year is just about over! I'm still loving the little enhancements to my home decor that Graham & Brown have helped me accomplish over the past 6 months.  Let's take a quick stroll down memory lane and rehash the trend forecasts over the past year! 
I started out creating some fun Instagram collages using Graham & Brown frames for the precious trend. I wanted to preserve all of my precious memories, and the frames were the perfect touch for this little corner in my living room.


The Horizon trend was inspired by nature, and these feather prints really helped make a statement in my kitchen!


But I think that my most favorite trend this year was the Industrial trend. I love how the  Lit Star added some pizzaz to my Industrial Holiday Bourbon Bar!



 I also revealed plans for the boys playroom while exploring the Eureka trend, which I am hoping to get started in early 2016. The Frames wallpaper is going to be perfect for this space!
