NIKKI AND JOSHUA

Hello friends!

Fall is finally here.  And with that I present to you another pillow I worked on but haven’t had a chance to share.  This paisley pillow was done on white linen with orange and tangerine Hungarian felt and embellished with turquoise beads.  I enjoyed working on this piece because it allowed me to break away from flowers and birds — which I love so much — to work with paisleys and beads.  The wedding took place in a garden in Virginia and the reception was indoors in a whimsical and vintage setting.  The color palette was dark aqua blue, tangerine orange, white, and dark red.  Enjoy!

MEGAN AND IDNISS

Hello all,

It’s HOT in NYC!  Hope everyone is having a fantastic and safe summer.  It’s been a great season so far filled with fun travels, gatherings and enjoying things in Brooklyn like Smorgasburg - yum!   

This lovely couple got married in Long Island, NY.  Megan’s storyboard is exquisite and sweet.  The photo of the cakes is my favorite!  I love the light pinks, magenta and touch of orange all mixed together.  The bride wanted a design that was organic, romantic and natural for the pillow.   Enjoy!

Hello dear readers,

Wishing your 2013 is off to a great start!  

I hope your holidays were safe and magical.  It’s been a little while since my last posting but happy to know you are still interested in seeing one of my next creations.  I would love to put more postings up of the works I’ve done, but there’s so little time left after all the fun I’m having in Mommy land.  I’m still managing to stay creative, but as we artist-parents know, life can get quite challenging sometimes (read: all the time)… but it’s totally worth it!… right?

Today’s posting is an initial pillow which many brides love to request.  The mood of the wedding was a fancy VINTAGE cocktail/dinner party, with lots of candles, intimate & personal touches such as custom silhouette decorations, pictures of parents and grandparents at their weddings at reception, 50’s cake topper and vintage hankies given out to aunts, moms and grandmothers at ceremony.  

Inspirations:  Oscar de la Renta gown

I am heartbroken about the event that happened in CT today.  Today has been a dark day and I can’t stop my tears.  I have two small children and my little boy is in Elementary school.  Please pray for the families grieving the lost of a child.

ROBYN AND JOHN

Hello there!

This was the busiest summer for our little family, but that’s not a bad thing.  I took some computer classes for textile/surface design, spent time at the beach, cooked great summer meals and enjoyed the company of friends and family in Brooklyn as well as out-of-state.  I don’t like to say goodbye to summer, but I’m happy to welcome my favorite season, fall.

I want to share a posting of this adorable couple Robyn and John whom got married in beautiful California.  They have the sweetest love story, and the proposal had me in tears (And may I add that Robyn was a dream to work with!). Robyn keeps a great Blog about her life, ventures and shares some beautiful photos.  Make sure to also check  this out!  

The cute stationary was designed by the very talented Ana Bond

SAFIEH AND CHARLES

Hello! 

How is Spring treating you?

This was one of my favorite pieces I’ve worked on.  

Safieh and Charles were married in Paris on Eastern weekend. They celebrated their first anniversary last month - Congratulations!.  

The bride wanted something inspired from their whimsical save-the-date designed by Gooseberry press.  Simple and elegant with a touch of old French.  The couple’s initials were hand embroidered on linen with vintage silk thread. Oh, and I loved that Safieh was up for a little shimmer.

SARA AND JAMES

Oh, I just love sewing silhouettes of little loved ones. Sadie, a cute Maltese (and a diva, I hear) was the muse for this project.  Since she was not allowed in the church to walk the pillow down the aisle, the couple wanted to have her there in spirit and fabric.  Sara thought of the design concept down to the collar with flowers, and I was happy to create it! 

The color palette was gunmetal, pewter and blush with an all-white reception.  The mood for the wedding:  modern, sparkly with DIY touches.

Sarah and James celebrated their 1 year anniversary this past New Year’s Eve. Congratulations!!
