I was excited to find that my Chanel No.5 Print was featured in this month's Style at Home magazine (Canada). It's always a morale boost to see a mention in a magazine. So many times, as an artist, a magazine promises to publish your work, requests free samples for a photoshoot and then tells you to look for your work/product in a specific issue. You excitedly receive or find the magazine, thumbing through the pages with heart palpitations, scanning like a crazy woman only to realize you were cut in the final edit. Trust me, it's an education in humility, patience and handling disappointment. That said, it's even sweeter when you get a feature that's a complete surprise! This mention came via MadeByGirl who carries my black Chanel No.5 print on their website. Below is a direct link to the issue.

I'm sorry for being so MIA lately.  I've just moved and it's been quite a chore. The results are well worth it, though. I love my new digs and this is my shipping storage area. It's organized and everything's visible and accessible. I am a happy camper.

Trying to keep on top of my business and shipping orders while moving all of my earthly goods required some juggling and some healthy snacks to fuel me. These Trader Joe's pineapple chips are my new fave. Once again, Trader Joe's comes through. Have I mentioned that I love that place??

In the midst of my moving insanity, a local reader of my blog got in touch because she wanted to buy my Veranda magazine stash. When we met for the magazine drop-off, she surprised me with this because she had read that these salads were my favorite. Can you believe how thoughtful this lady is?? 
It really made my day - thanks so much, Irene!  One of those instances where you are reminded of how refreshing it can be to meet a truly nice person and what a joy blogging can be when you are able to interact with readers and fellow bloggers.

Speaking of nice, I also wanted to say thanks to fashion blogger Maggie Philbin for this mention of my matchboxes last week. Very sweet. You can read it here:

Well, that's a short update and I will try to catch up on commenting & posting fresh content very soon.
Thank you all for your patience & loyal support. You guys are the best!
Enjoy your weekend!!


Excited to have 2 of my prints featured in the Holiday 2012 issue of House of Fifty! I am honored to have my work included with that of some terrific fellow artists.
A huge thank you to founder/editor Janell Beals, a very smart, talented and gracious lady entrepeneur who has built a great online magazine and is also super nice. Don't you just love nice and genuine people?? Not enough of them these days, so the ones who are shine especially bright. 
Check out the Holiday Issue here
I hope that you have an awesome weekend!!


I don't know about you, but I love seeing the homes and offices of other bloggers and artists. It's always cool when I spot some of my work in there, too, as was the case with Erin Gates" studio/office in Boston recently featured on The Everygirl. 
She had 8 of my chair prints framed and lined up on a moulding ledge - a great way to display them.
Read the feature here on The Everygirl.
Here's hoping that you have a wonderful weekend!

Did you have a nice weekend?  
The rainy season here in South Florida is ending and even though the highs are still in the low to mid 90's, the blue skies are brighter & clearer and it no longer feels like a steambath.  I am glad that Fall is on it's way! 
I'd like to thank of all these great blogs for their recent posts featuring my work.  Please stop by these sites and let them know I sent you. The support shared in this crazy blogging community is priceless!
 Thank you all so much and hope your week gets off to a great start.
