Maple Memories

Valentine's day is only two weeks away! It is a great time to show anyone that you love just how much you care! Everyday I wake up and think of things I'm grateful for, but it is nice to do something a little extra for friends and family on February fourteenth.

I've taken iconic and memorable photos from past travels all around the world and put them onto a maple woodblock. The result of the photo on wood-grain is truly unique and beautiful. This one is of the Brooklyn Bridge. I've always wanted to walk to Brooklyn Bridge so the last trip to New York City that is exactly what we did.

I love the black and white. This is the first edition of a hypothetical "set" of black and white woodblock transfers. The set includes photos from traveling to the Dominican Republic, the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays World Series playoff clinch, an authentic Bullfight from 2005 in Salamanca, Spain; before bullfighting was outlawed and considered total animal cruelty. - my opinions aside-I thought it was a great lost artful pastime.

If you want to be considered an amazing gift-giver, create your very own in color or Black and White. Go to my Etsy for instructions on how to get your custom, one of a kind gift shipped before Valentine's day.

Don't forget this is perfect year round!

Mom Shorts

In Florida the weather is mild around this time of year. The mid-day sun will make you wish for the skimpy clothes of summer but that moment will pass. Then the wind will come when you step out of the sun, and you will surely be freezing your tootsies off.

See the shorts on my Etsy!

I made these shorts that are great for bike riding, laying in the grass and sitting on a movie theater seat. As a woman, I hate the thought of sitting on a movie theater seat in anything other than jeans.

Anyway, don't be scared of the old school mom jeans. Cut them off, Cuff em and add a belt--if you're daring pair it with some platforms and let out that fashionista for springtime weather.

Watch the video clip below from the Saturday Night Live skit. Enjoy!

I've been looking for some girls for an editorial shoot, but all my friends moved to New York City (and other countries too, so go figure). The truth is I'm at that great age where moving forward sometimes literally moving far distances. I love this city, St. Petersburg, and don't plan on moving anywhere that gets colder than and 30 degree low in the middle of the night. Now, everyone is pretty spread out all over the world and I love it.
This inspiration comes from these great styles in the February Vogue 2012. Kendra Spears is gorgeous so this was perfect inspiration for a new spark of creativity. Pictures soon!

Thank you to The Spring of Tampa Bay for putting on a gorgeous event on Monday, November 7. I had a booth set up for LEONE and met tons of great artists and creative minds. I enjoyed seeing friends out to support the music, fashion and my booth.

Bandeau Scarves

I am trying to cut down my fabric supply and lately have been using scrap material from former projects to make scarfs and ties. There are many ways to wear these. There are small scarves and medium/large scarves. Small measure 60in (150cm), and the medium/large size averages 84in (210cm). Small scarves can wrapped around your neck twice, while the others can wrap around three times. These scarves are loops, so they connect instead of have ends. They all can also be worn as headbands, necklaces or over tank-tops as an addition to a layered look. They can be braided, form many types of loops shown in the video below, as well as tied with one knot or two. This video helps give you the many ideas for how to wear a scarf.

Pretty Peacock


I am so excited because it gets very busy around my studio this time of year! Last night was a swell time assembling this guy- a Full Three Piece Peacock Suit; Corset, Bra and Belt (tail).

The feathered bra looks one with the corset. Total feather inventory was about 25 small "eyes", 20 "swords", 25 large "eyes" and a pack of those beautiful iridescent blue breast feathers that worked very well in the same area-breasts!

This was a ball to create. Can't wait for my next costume..
