Recently Minted and West Elm teamed up for a brand new art challenge! I only found time to submit one piece, but I really enjoyed working on the below painting, titled “Wildfire.” I miss painting a lot sometimes and it’s always a good idea to switch up the creative process a little. Minted then asked us to pair our submissions with items from the West Elm site to show customers and voters how we would incorporate our piece in a functional space. If you have a minute head over to the “Inspiration Boards” section on the site and like my board!
Super excited to share the above clip from the Today Show, which features one of my new Baby Shower designs for Minted! The design Sip, Sip, Hooray, can be seen around minute marker 2:30 on the Sip & See display table. The design can be purchased through Minted here! So, so excited for this feature…hopefully many more to come!
So excited to have this project featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper! It is a blog I have followed for a very, very long time and I could not be more excited to have this opportunity. And of course thank you in large part to the wonderful Katie and Matt Carter who let me work with them on these gorgeous invites! I had the absolute best time putting all the pieces together and getting to try edge painting for the first time…something I will certainly be doing more of. They also had a pretty awesome wedding, so you should check out the photos here!
Thank you to all those who helped with this project:
Printing: Sase Ink in Charleston, SC
Edge Painting: Moglea
Calligraphy: Diane Rember of Calligraphy Expressions
Minted has just launched it’s new collection of Save The Date designs for 2013! I am excited to have 3 new designs included in the collection. The above inspiration board was created featuring one of those designs, Deco Date. The art deco era has always been a source of inspiration to me and a style that I love incorporating into my own work. Strong shapes, bold uses of color, and plenty of glitz and glamour is what that time period was all about! The above design is intended to be a save the date, but this is the type of wedding I imagine it being paired with. You can see all of the new designs here!
Over the past year I have been working with Speck Products to design custom cell phone case designs for seasonal holidays. The above cases were two designs I setup for potential Halloween cases that were sent to me as prototypes. I love the Candyshell cases from Speck! They are gorgeous in person and I was so happy they sent me a couple to see first hand. The printing is vivid and sharp and I love the pop of color on the inside too! The potion case I think has been shelved at the moment, but the Skull case can be purchased here!
Just a few funny outtakes from our holiday photo shoot with the cats! For everyone who thought they were super photogenic…well they have their moments Also…a look at our holiday card for those who may not have received it yet. Sorry they were so late!

I was overjoyed to be included in a feature on the wonderful Style Me Pretty site last week! I have been a SMP fan for some time and love what they do for the wedding industry. If you or someone you know is planning a wedding it is definitely a great resource to use. They have links to several of the best vendors for photography, stationery, flowers, cakes, catering, etc. The feature from last week spotlighted 3 designers from Minted (including your truly!) and gave readers a peek into our work spaces. Even Desmond made a brief cameo in the post!
And here are some of the photos I styled for the post:
Thank you Minted for the amazing opportunity!
Well it’s that time of year again…the long summer wait as the Minted team makes their selections for the 2012 Holiday collection. The challenge closed mid June, but we will not receive any results until late September. It’s only a few months, but it is a very, very grueling wait. This year’s over 2600 submissions were seriously stunning and made for some very exciting competition. I enjoy being pushed and motivated, and this group of designers definitely does that! I really tried to put my best foot forward with my submissions and now all that’s left to do is cross my fingers and hope for the best. Cannot wait to see the final picks…whether or not I am included I know it will be a gorgeous collection.
Here’s a peak at some of my cards that made it to the final round of voting:
