PAPER ART + JEWELRY

I’ve been doing a lot of crafting lately, between working on props/backdrops for photo shoots and making gifts for Christmas. Here are a few of things that I’ve made in the last couple of weeks.

Large scale quilling I made for a Bride shoot:

NEW WORK

I’m a bit behind on updating my new work lately, I have a couple of stories from the last two issues of Home. Our Winter issue’s cover story was all about graphic home furnishings:

My favorite pieces we featured were the vintage blocks of type:

My friend Martin started photographing his neighborhood during the different seasons… I saw the winter shots, and fell in love with the dreaminess of the photos. I asked Martin to shoot Woodbridge in the summer, to finish the last of the seasons, so we could run a photo essay of the neighborhood:

PIE!

The latest Onstar logo that I styled - I asked Achatz to make the logo out of pie crust. I’m not even a fan of pie, but this one looks really delicious:

I also put up my christmas tree for my annual crunksgiving dinner. My favorite part of it is the burger ornament!

CRAFTS + JAMZ

My friend Liz is getting married this weekend, and my gift to her was a giant cross-stitch with the wedding date stitched onto it. This will be the photo booth backdrop at the reception, and then she’ll be able to hang it in her house as a keepsake… if she has room for it, yikes. Liz helped me with the gridding + stitching, and also made sure that the giant thing didn’t fall on us while making it. I can’t wait to see it hanging in the space!

Kollabora asked me to put together a spotify playlist for their blog, here’s a link to some of my favorite crafting jamz.

IT’S FALL TIME

This is the first of a series of logos that I styled for OnStar. I love the ring of acorns around the logo, and of course the cider mill donuts. Going to the Franklin Cider Mill is definitely one of my favorite things about fall. Cider mills, and getting to finally wearing scarves again!
