renegade recap

Renegade was my first craft show and it did not disappoint! Kelly Moseley of Studio Anabel and I shared a booth. We had a great time and met many amazing vendors. I loved sharing my work, meeting new people + seeing the work of some of my etsy faves up close and personal. It was a fun weekend in Austin!

finishing touches

better late than never?!

I didn't manage to post along the way as I prepared for Renegade, so I'll do some catching up now. I've added new product to my uniquely handmade collection of paper goods. I like details and ornate motifs and often use them in my art. Taking a few that I've designed, I had stamps made. I wanted to contrast the delicate, busy designs with the simplicity of a plain kraft moleskine. It's a stretch for me not to use lots of color, but it felt just right on these.

a detailed print made simple with these notecards. For these, I created a stamp from one of my favorite prints "Poppy". Once a piece of wall art, now a friendly hello!

Rogue Wave. I never tire of listening to their album Asleep at Heaven's Gate. It's been on repeat all week while I work.

wall art

I L o v e springtime in New York. One of my favorite things to do when I'm back in the city is to walk down the High Line, a park running along the west side from 20th St. to Gansevoort. here's a few pics from a recent trip outside some Chelsea galleries before we started our stroll.


Surtex is coming up tomorrow at the Javits Center in nyc. My work can be seen at Lilla Rogers Studio booths (251-253). Wishing I could be there....It's always sooooo i n s p i r i n g!! The Javit Center is just buzzing this week with 3 amazing
shows at once - along with Surtex is Nat'l Stationery Show and ICFF. What a dream!
