I have been meaning to post this for a while but I have been pretty busy. My sister recently got married and over the summer we gave her a shower at this great old B&B near the ocean in Bayhead NJ.  I made the invite and my creative mother made these wonderful center pieces with moss jars and flowers picked from her incredible garden. She made these great tags that each had a different love inspiring poem written on it. Also Instead of having traditional shower games we decided to raffle off baskets filled with different cooking items. I created a raffle ticket that each guest received when they walked in. The raffle was a success, especially that most guests won a basket of cooking goodies!!

Studios Spaces

I have recently been on a few Studio tours around Brooklyn. I was able to get a great view into a lot of great Artist work spaces. After going on both the Buschwick and Greenpoint open studios I was inspired to re-design my own art space. I have been slowly collecting new great industrial pieces including a vintage Bakers Rack that I am going to turn into my bookshelf and art holder. As I am slowly collecting my new pieces I thought it would be a great idea to make an inspirational board of spaces that inspire me. I came across this great website called Pintrest. And on the first page alone I grabbed a few great photos of spaces that are amazing! Please enjoy below!!

Please stayed tuned. I will be uploading photos of my art space once I finish collecting new pieces. I am so excited to work on this new project! I look forward to sharing all my ideas.

Woodland Whispers

This has definitely been a snowy winter here in Brooklyn. I created these inspiration pages in a nice soft palette that reflects the colors and mood I have been feeling this January. These colors are a great for decorating or starting a new piece of artwork.

Most of these inspiration pieces above come from Etsy. I especially love the poetic look of the Snow covered trees from  Lucy Snowe photography shop. And who could be without a great owl mug to fill all your hot coco through the winter. This artistic peice of pottery comes from Ayumi Horie's Pottery shop. I love the way she mixes  the sketchy lines with a dab of color. Also make sure to check out this great little owl from Lilly Bon Bon. and one of my lady prints on Etsy.

I absoulety love these dream catcher pillows from my friends new Bf4e etsy shop. They also have great jewelery and with every HOPE ring that is sold they donate 10$ to the Lungevity foundation!! I also love these wintery deer pillow pics I found on flickr!!

Drink Fabulous!

The entertaining season has officially begun! I thought these pics were great inspiration for fabulous looking bar ideas.

Im planning on hosting a few dinner parties during the holidays and I am excited to set up my own stylish little bar. Sometimes to start my inspiration process I flip through my old domino magazines. Above I  found this great bar area, inspired by a holiday outfit. I love the dark artsy gothic edge to this one! 
 I also found some inspiring pics from this great blog called La Dolfina.
(I also want to use some of my retro cocktail drawings from the above pictures, on napkins or print them on little labels. Stay tuned for future pictures of how my bar comes out)!
