Wrapping Up Your Gifts | French Linen, Feathers, Moroccan Bells and Pine

    Wrapping up gifts for those that I love is half of the fun of giving. This year I am wrapping gifts in vintage French linens but you could also use yardage of any fabric you have on hand or use vintage linens. Vintage napkins are very generous in size and will be large enough for most small to medium sized gifts. I wanted to share my sources for the gift wrap materials I used in our latest Holiday …

Shop Our Home | Favorites From Our Holiday Home Tour!

  We loved sharing our home dressed up for Christmas and your feedback is always the sweetest.  We always get so many questions about our home, how we decorate and how to create a home that looks modern but feels cozy at the same time. I think creating home is a gradual and beautiful process but I think there are some key elements that bring that cozy and modern feeling together. We have gathered some of our favorite things from …

12th Year In Business Anniversary Sale! | 40% Off One Course!

  Twelve years ago I had a one, five and seven year old and once they were in bed each night I would create until the early hours in the morning. I look back now on those nights and know that those hours to myself to create and finding time no matter the exhaustion the next day was what brought my creativity back to life. It all started with home, gathering, making handmade journals, and altered letters and frames. The …

I Do Things Scared All of The Time | Building a Creatively Made Business

  When you are building your business you KNOW you don’t know anything. Everyone else around you KNOWS you don’t know things and you are figuring things out.

I am scared so many times in our day to day …

I would love to invite you to the last two workshops in our …

Gorgeous Work Being Created in Paint Your Town!
