Welcoming Baby Jamison

This #WeddingWednesday we’re going to be taking a peek at some baby shower invitations!! I had the pleasure of designing a friend’s baby shower invitation and I LOVED it. Watercolor + peaches + babies? SIGN ME UP!

Hand painted watercolor, this invitation design features a baby monogram matching the peach themed shower along with neutral florals to accommodate a neutral-loving mama! Each invitation was addressed with a touch of greenery watercolor to coordinate with the invite and a pearl-finish peach wax seal designed for baby Jamison and created by Artisaire!

I’m so excited to share these invitations, but even more excited to welcome baby Jamison when she arrives!!

Memphis Makers Series

Memphis Makers Series was a series of illustrated paintings to showcase all the talented new people I met on my felt-flower journey. A wonderful group of ladies all doing their own thing and crushing it, all makers I’ve met in the last several years are unbelievably supportive and kind. I wanted to pay homage to them in the best way I know how – art.

I loved the series so much, MaryClaire White offered her newly-renovated gallery space behind Falling Into Place and I jumped at the opportunity to show off the pieces in my very first art show! (Insert MAJOR butterflies in the stomach)

Most of my pieces are shown below, but the series included the ladies of Urban Barn Market, MaryClaire of Falling Into Place, Kristin of Everbloom, Amy Hartelust, Hillary Butler, Beth Winterburn, Maggie Russell, Kat of Muddy’s Bake Shop, Brit of Paper & Clay, Elyse of Prim Society, Nuha of 17 Berkshire (who is about to open her brick and mortar!!), the ladies of Propcellar and Anna of Hoot + Louise.

Materials: Acrylic paint, metallic gold paint & ink

Grandmother Portaiture

My dining room is one of my favorite rooms of the house (even though we literally never use it). It’s got my favorite color, navy. I have hung the navy china plates from inspiration from my wedding. And now, it has one of my favorite side projects hanging as decor!

Charcoal portraiture is one of my all-time favorites for side projects. I fell in love with the process in my figure drawing classes at SCAD. Content is usually my hang up, but when I thought of mine and Clay’s grandmothers, it was a done-deal.

The first image is my maternal grandmother, Jackie, on her wedding day! The second image is Clay’s paternal grandmother, Judy dressed up for a high school formal. Both such vibrant women, I’m proud to have them both in our home!
