It’s March! It’s almost springtime. I love this time of year. People say LA doesn’t have seasons but I say nah – that’s not true. I think they are there but subtle. Nothing like the rain and the smell of flowers in the air (well in certain neighborhoods in LA haha). It’s also St. Patrick’s day. To celebrate March’s holiday and floral bloom I made a desktop wallpaper for you! Enjoy!Leave a Comment
Symbols such as logos, emojis and icons on street signs are a big part of our lives and we interact with them every day. I explored the significance of symbols and have a fun DIY project for you over on my column, Pattern Play, at the Jungalow.com.
It’s a three parter! Part 1 is on the origin, Part 2 I teach you how to make a fun pattern based on the concept of symbols and Part 3 is a fun DIY and product reveal. You can even download the pattern! Love to see what you do with it. Use our hashtag #jungalowpatternplay and post on social media!

Hello February! I love February cause it’s my BIRTHDAY on the 7th – Super Bowl Sunday actually this year! I guess everyone watching the game is celebrating too in some way – haha. This year I am not doing anything big…just spending it with friends and family and for me that’s the best way. February is also extra special because of Valentine’s day. I made this wallpaper from love for all of you and your support for me and my business. Many hugs lots of love! – MUAH!1 Comment
I had the pleasure of designing wedding stationery for a style shoot featured recently on Smitten Magazine online. The shoot was held at the Washbow, an event venue in Culver City, CA – where I live! This gem is disguised among industrial buildings and local stores and felt like an oasis when I walked in. I had no idea it was there!
How incredible is this lounge area? I could stay there all day. The quaint patio was a total surprise to see outside this large, industrial building and was just perfect for this wedding shoot.
Summer Newman of Summer Newman Events is the mastermind behind this magical style shoot that she calls “Urban Industrial”. After receiving a style board from Summer, I designed the wedding invitations, place cards and menu in a geometric design to mimic the concrete textures used in the table scape and cake design. The washy colors with the neutral, gray envelopes were taken from the floral arrangements creating a modern, industrial feel with a feminine touch.
I am in love with how it all came together…these images are just so dreamy. See the entire shoot here on Smitten Magazine. I hope it inspires you to create something in this “Urban Industrial” style.

Today is a day that reminds us to be of service, to make a difference with our lives and to honor how far we have come. Though we haven’t reached the mountain top yet we have progressed and continue to take action to get there. The fight for equality, fairness and peace continues and today we are reminded through MLK’s poetic words of encouragement: “Only in the darkness can you see the stars” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
