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 […]
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’m a travelholic, I admit. But this weekend, I actually stayed in town. That left time to act like a tourist in sunny Chicago. On Sunday, I went to the the Lincoln Park Conservatory, The Chicago History Museum, and Lincoln Hotel for a drink at The J. Parker. The Lincoln Park Conservatory: This paradise under glass was built in the late 1800s. Room after room is categorized and filled with different plants. It’s steamy, beautiful, and overwhelming to think how […]

A week at Outer Banks is enough to rejuvenate any soul, even one that’s been freezing in Chicago for far too long. I’ve been trying to travel up a storm lately, and this has been one of my favorite trips. As the Beach Boys would say, “We’ve been having fun all summer long.” And happy day– I have a new favorite Tee. Take a look at Awesome Sports Logos. Read the story behind this Mississippi Middleton Fingers shirt. Irreverent and comfy, just the way I […]

So I just got back from spending the weekend in Nashville. It’s a lovely place, but I’m not so sure I belong there. It’s the land of country music and cowboy boots. It seems that I should fit right in, being from Texas and all, but I can’t say that I do. Any place that has giant figures of Elvis up and down the street isn’t for me. As a child, I would burst into tears every time “The King” came […]

New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to dress up in your fancy-smanshy clothes. I wore my new aluminum jewelry from the Art Institute in Chicago with my favorite black velvet dress. Throw in my long beaded gloves from Target and a faux fur hat from Canada and you’re ready to ring in the new year! But don’t forget the lipstick…super red Dior Addict Gloss will do the trick. Then top the outfit off with the Fashion Week Tokyo Sky […]

Welcome to your Wednesday Rewind, folks! This is a post from 2011. I was rummaging through some old photos and found this series. Butternut squash and fall and chevron and Nikes and Missoni. Sounds like pure bliss, huh? yep. What do you think I should paint this year?
I fell in love with Chicago the day I moved here. Three years later, and I still think this city’s got it goin’ on. Beautiful summer days and free art shows. You have to check out The Happy Show by Stefan Sagmeister in the Cultural Center. It really gets you thinking. I know the sign at the beginning says the exhibition will not make you happier. But maybe it can paint things for you in a new light. Or it can help […]
