It’s that time of year when all we are waiting for is spring, but we have to try to be in the holiday spirit for the biggest Minted challenge of the year. I have been really busy so I was only able to get a few new designs in, as well as some of my faves from last years collection. You never know, they might be winners this time around (crossing fingers). Below are all my entries and voting is open till May 15th! Just click on each to share your rating. Thank you!

Opal House for Target

Target launched another brand recently and not only is it pretty inspiring, but its super affordable and stylish as well. Opalhouse includes bold colors, textured pieces and a huge focus on details. With the brand’s 70s feel it definitely has a sense of nostalgia. However, the furniture is quite modern and the decorative elements are rich in many ways. I think it’s a nice blend of old and new, perfect if you want to bring life and warmth into your home.

Here are some photos of the new brand and its collections, along with some of my favorite pieces. Enjoy!

I’ve been slowly working on developing a new card series that reflects my love for poetry and it’s been a little challenging. From digging through years of writing to figuring out the best design direction, it’s been an interesting journey. Since it’s quite personal, I feel like I’m sharing a piece of my heart, while trying to create a platform for others to make an intimate connection with each other. It’s sort of the way I felt while I was working on my Reflection Series, but this is deeper.

Being an artist you really need to be brave and just dive in, even though you don’t know how others will react. But I have always felt safe in the creative place I am in while doing the work. As long as I’m being true to myself and creating art, I am exactly where I need to be. I hope to launch this series by spring, but until then I’ll be a busy bee piecing it all together.
