I recently worked on a special little project out of the ordinary for me. I was asked to make about 65 favors for a baby shower. The shower was for graphic designer Angela Hardison. Being a graphic designer, her friends thought it only appropriate for the shower to be an alphabet theme. The friend that asked me to make the favors had Angela write out the alphabet for us and I made little initial letter charms for all the guests. It was fun. I only wish I knew Angela so I could have attended this straight out of a magazine, adorable baby shower!!
My friend Debbie is one of the ladies that planned the shower. She throws some pretty gorgeous parties:) She also helped me make the charms.
All photos were taken by Angela unless otherwise noted.
And if you like design, be sure to check out Angela's Blog.

This was the alphabet I was given, and below are the charms. This project was such a fun little disctraction from the current chaos that is my life!

Just wanted to share some images of a recently finished commission piece. This was commissioned by a husband for his wife as a gift for her 50th birthday. The silhouette was taken from a photo of their 3 kids.
My favorite detail of the piece is the untied shoelaces of the son. materials: found silver platter, copper
size: approximately 14"x10"x2"

Here and There

I feel like I have been all over the place lately. Lately as in the last several months. I have a 7 month old baby now. 7 months!!! How did that happen?! Needless to say the last few months have been busy and somewhat non-productive in the studio. I love life as a mom but have been struggling to find balance between that and all the other areas of my life. Things are getting better, I feel like I am settling into a fairly steady routine now and I've gotten a bit of work done in the studio these last few days. Here are just a couple of snapshots of some things that are on my bench at the moment. Nothing finished...just bits and pieces waiting to be fit together.
