eek. It has been an intense, exciting & eventful few months and all of the sudden a lot of time has passed since I've done a real post. There is a lot to catch up on! Let's start with the highlights....
In July, I began a new job working full time designing textiles for children's apparel at TJX in Framingham, MA. It has been a big adjustment from my full time freelance life, but while I am a little sad to be spending less time in my cozy home studio, I am relishing the whimsical work I am creating with this truly talented team of designers.
My scribbles will soon be seen on little rompers, tshirts, tunics & dresses at TJ Maxx, Marshalls (USA), Winners (Canada), &TK Maxx(Europe). I have been amassing new artwork and prints at an amazing rate, and look forward to sharing more soon!

Thennn... in October(on the 6th to be exact), I had the pleasure of throwing a great big party and marrying my very best friend, Ryan. Wedding planning was frantic, fun, fabulous & full of many opportunites for creative projects. We were lucky enough to have the love and support of many friends, family & skilled craftsmen to see us through our artistic adventures, but I somehow still managed to have my hands in almost everything...
I designed our wedding website(above), our invitations(below)...

...patterns(of course!) for both my bright blue dress, and the ties worn by my dude of honor(Nate, my brother), the best men, and a blue bowtie for my handsome groom. With the help of spoonflower, a very skilled seamstresses, and a very talented & patient Nana, my prints became fabric, became garments that we wore with smiles so big they hurt.

We had a wildly wonderful time with some of our very favorite people on this great big tiny earth, dancing the night away under a silvery moon(made by my dear Daddo), and reveling in a room full of
so much love.
... and, in the meantime...
...some of my very favorite freelance clients have been up to some fantastically fun things, that I look forward to gushing about very soon on this here blog.
So, life is good, and it's good to be back :)
