Beauty in Brokenness

By |March 27th, 2017|

There’s just something about being broken.

After you’re at your bottom, whatever that looks like at your place in life, you begin to slowly crawl your way back up…if you’re lucky.  And while you’re crawling up, you’ve already recognized it.  You can almost taste it.  Know it’s real.  And while you’re terrified,  you wonder if it […]

Creative Business: On Teams, Being the Front Man, & Miracles

By |March 22nd, 2017|

These videos (in my head) were just supposed to be a way for you to get to know the company I collaborate with.  To meet the people that mean so much to me, and to see us chat back and forth about what we’re doing and where we’re headed next.  Casual.

And the videos have been […]

Graphite Console Table Makeover

By |March 20th, 2017|

We’ve been working on moving me (and Ashely) into the new studio space the last couple weeks.  We’ve had to do this in between other projects, so it’s slowly coming together.  AKA we just got a trash can in there a couple days ago.  Ahem.

So while actually decorating the space has been put on the […]

Marsh Collective & Perfectly Imperfect Video Series: Part 4

By |March 17th, 2017|

Well.  There’s this…

John refers to some of our team as the muppet judges in today’s little segment.  And in fairness, we did all laugh.

Today’s questions I’ve gotten asked…

What do they do? (because we basically talk about this one in almost every video)

Have you moved?  Are you going to?

 

Happy Friday, folks.  We’re having a wedding at […]

Meet Marsh Collective-A Video Series for You

By |March 16th, 2017|

Every time I’ve sat down to tell you more about the people I work with now, I just sort of stare at the screen.  I’m serious.  I just get stuck.  This is not because there’s not a lot to say, in fact, it’s the opposite.  There is so much, too much even, to say about […]

Side Track Coffee Design – Before & After

By |March 1st, 2017|

One of the projects I came into at the beginning of my collaborating with Marsh Collective was the design for Side Track Coffee…

 

Since I came in at the end, I had nothing to do with the actual design minus input on that bright green under the bar and shaking my head up and down that yes, […]

Soo…What have You Been Doing?

By |February 4th, 2017|

In light of my most recent post, I thought it fitting to answer this question—-what have I been doing???

It’s so interesting to me that minus the year I wrote the book, these last couple of years have been my most creative…and I’ve barely recorded it. So what I have I been doing?

I’ll take you back […]

On Blogging, Creativity, & Insecurities

By |January 30th, 2017|

You know, there are just times when the stars align, and for just one brief moment, things actually make sense. This weekend was such a time.  I went to Memphis (more on this soon), and shared about creativity and business and we painted and laughed.  I met some people who said things I needed to […]

Christmas Decorating with Ava

By |November 27th, 2016|

Listen.  I know everyone thinks their kids are cute.  I know they’re mostly just cute to us.  But in the spirit of that (and the fact that I had zero desire to decorate the house for Christmas today & she got me into it), I’m going to record a few of our conversations […]

Stephanie’s Playroom- Wallpaper Installed!

By |November 21st, 2016|

Whew.  Well the blog/site have been dooowwwnnn for about 3 weeks.  Thanks for your patience there, guys.

Since then, Stephanie’s playroom is pretty much complete.  I only have to hang a couple more pieces of art and shoot the space.  Remember I said we had a little set back with a leak?  While first decided to […]

Stephanie’s Playroom Inspiration & Design Board

By |October 25th, 2016|

Now for the good stuff.

I told you about Stephanie’s girls’ playroom we’ve been working on…

 

The main objective was to refresh the look of the space and reorganize the girls’ art/playing school supplies and give them a more grown up place to lounge.

We’ve changed some things (remember we had a wallpaper incident, so we no longer […]

Design Project- Stephanie’s Playroom

By |October 20th, 2016|

I told you a while back we’ve been taking on design clients again, and when I tell you I love it…I love it.  And I missed delving into these projects so much.  That, writing, and photography are my favorite parts of what I do.

I’ll be sharing all the projects here on the blog, and I’ll keep […]

The Market on Chapel Hill Displays

By |October 18th, 2016|

We had blast at this year’s Market on Chapel Hill…

After my decision to turn PI into a design studio, we brought way less.  We stuck to my typical palette of wood/white focal pieces and mixed in some accents and smalls.

Our backs mostly thanked us.

 

 

These white crocks.  With the preserved leaves.

And the heirloom pumpkins….

 

Lord at the […]

Fall

By |October 5th, 2016|

 

Because heirloom pumpkins might be one of my very favorite things on earth.

Forget a bouquet of flowers.  Give me pretty pumpkins.

We’re slowly recovering from The Market on Chapel Hill…all the display pics coming soon!

PI Studio Makeover

By |September 21st, 2016|

Oh my word.

When I say running.  I mean running lately.

I’ve had these studio pics ready to share with you for some time now, but between all of the projects we’re working on, there’s not been much time to sit down and write.  It’s a hard transition for me and my business…for blogging not to be […]

Happenings at Factory South

By |September 9th, 2016|

It’s been a hot minute since we talked about Factory South.

We opened the store in April 2015 and this, if you remember, is what it looked like…

We moved things around here and there, but overall it maintained the same feel and style.  As time passed, we decided to sell the brand to the folks I’m working […]

Creamware Dessert Pots, Fishs Eddy Sprinkles, & Photo Shoots

By |September 7th, 2016|

We’re currently buzzing around PI.

Literally.

I have 2-3 huge design projects going right now (yep I’ll fill you in soon), and we’re gearing up for The Market on Chapel Hill and the fall shopping season for the online store.  My work in Opelika has been busy and exciting, and I have news to share on that […]

The End of Your Comfort Zone

By |September 2nd, 2016|

Hey y’all!

As you know, I’ll be popping in once a week with some behind the scenes talk, inspiration, or maybe just to give you some random positive vibes for the week. Regardless of what my weekly posts turn into, my goal is to keep it uplifting.

First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. […]

Giverny is Here!!

By |September 1st, 2016|

Well you can get your own can of Giverny now, folks!  I’m telling you, next to French Linen, this will be my new favorite.  We begin planning our Market on Chapel Hill space today, and I have a feeling this color and French Enamel will be heavy hitters.

In case you missed my first makeover with […]

Small Farm Table Makeover | Chalk Paint White Wax Tutorial

By |August 23rd, 2016|

Well, I’ve officially gotten back in the proverbial groove of painting.  The store was open last week, as we were still putting the finishing touches on the space.  I’ll share some before and after pics with you soon, but I wanted to show you one of the projects I worked on…

You’ll have to mind our […]
