If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of folding thousands and thousands of tiny little shapes. To celebrate my best friend Liz on her 30th birthday, we did a very colorful photoshoot with an overdose of chocolate cake. Love you, Lizzie. Thanks for being such a good sport. Little do you know, I’ve already started planning just what we’ll be up to on your 40th. Check out my etsy shop if you’d like to recreate this insanity […]
The first step I took in wedding planning was to create a wedding website. I didn’t have all the information that I needed at that time, but it helped me get a better grasp on what I needed to do next. Seeing as how I already had 3 WordPress blogs, I knew I was going to go with them as the platform. The great thing about WordPress is that you can make your own wedding website for free. Now that’s […]
You guys know me–nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day like a shoddily handcrafted neon heart. Throw in a pair of the London Fashion Week Sky Highs and you’ve created nothing short of a masterpiece. That’s how I say I love you to all my followers. xoxo, for the love of nike
You guys remember my wall hanging for giants? Well I made a mini one. Like it? It would love to hang in your home. Grab it for yourself here, my friends. I’ll even include a little surprise for ya if you message me and say you saw it here first.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been etsy-ing it up lately. I’m proud to say that Jennifer’s Mondo Village of Greatness is now offering custom origami hangings and mobiles. The photos below are of a piece I made for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual gala in New York. It’s over 7ft. tall and 12 ft. wide. Take a closer look here. Buy a bundle of shapes for yourself here. Turn them into a mobile or garland on your own. Or you can use them […]
I have to admit, that navigating through the whole wedding game, I’ve felt very out of place. I’m a corny person by nature, but so much of the expected behavior felt beyond corny to me. My fiancé and I did our best to pick and choose what things made sense for us, and what we wanted to avoid. We definitely wanted to make sure that family and friends played key roles in the process. So obviously, the folks in our wedding party were […]

Weddings are so much work (it’s pretty silly) but I can’t wait to get my party on. Stay tuned and I’ll fill ya in on all the Nike details. I have my wedding crafts packed up and ready to entertain the crowd. Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are a lot of times that I don’t want to use my “fancy” camera. But when you’re used to the quality of a picture taken by a 5D, the typical iphone photo feels inadequate. My quick fix for that problem is to make the photo my own with an artistic twist. This go round I figured I would make my own camera filters that could be used with a disposable camera or even an iphone. I cut a small hole […]

Well my little love bugs, I have some big news… I’m engaged! Can you believe it?! We threw an engagement party the other night with very personalized decorations. The Nike footsteps share a bit of our story. I came from Texas, and he came from Pittsburgh. We met in Chicago and fell in love! I made a giant replica of my ring, complete with Ceylon Sapphire. How gorgeous is that?! I’ve always known I didn’t want a diamond engagement ring, […]
