Painting & Painting. And More Painting.

By |August 16th, 2016|

My mercy we have been painting.

I’m pretty sure two separate days this week, at approximately 6 p.m., Julia has looked at me like a very tired puppy…not saying a word, but completely glazed over and exhausted.  She’s the best, by the way.  Each time we’ve hit that point, we’ve stopped and had a glass of […]

Keep Moving/Haven Conference

By |August 9th, 2016|

I spent last weekend in Atlanta surrounded by good friends, a little wine, and a whole lot of inspiration.  Honestly.  It’s not just one of those cheesy things people say.  Or maybe it is.  But for me, last weekend, it was true.

I was in town for Haven Conference, and my friend and I…you probably know […]

The Truth of It All

By |August 7th, 2015|

I think I’ve been avoiding this post for a while.

I’m not sure why.  You guys know quite a bit about me, and I’ve shared so much of my life here with you.  The truth is, I’ve been quite uninspired the last 6 months.  Maybe longer.

To create, to paint, to tell a story.

Life became real and […]

Planning a Creative Retreat

By |July 23rd, 2015|

Well we are back from our Creative Retreat. This one was a little different than the last.

Last year’s Creative Retreat, we spent a ton of time on customer quality service and infusing magic into our business, and lots of energy defining our styles individually and as a brand.  And of course we had lots of […]

Shop The Space

By |July 3rd, 2015|

Good Morning from the beach!

I’m sitting outside enjoying my morning coffee and wondering if I ever have to come home.

Do I??  Maybe nah.

We’ve been digging around for inspiration while gearing up to work on some projects both at my home and for clients…and we decided to start […]

New Blog Features

By |July 16th, 2014|

Well, you may have noticed that we have a new look here on the blog.

It was time for more clean space to make room for things like larger photos and videos.

And while I love the new, even cleaner look, I am even more excited about the new features on the site.  It’s sort of a […]

What It Takes: Dream Makers

By |March 11th, 2014|

Let’s start with this.

I am not magical or have the world of business figured out.  I am not a Wall Street tycoon nor will I be on the cover of Forbes magazine as “businesswoman of the year.”

I will tell you, though, that this topic has been on my mind […]

Reader Survey–What You Want

By |November 7th, 2013|

Hey friends!

It has been quite a while since we’ve tweaked things around this corner of the blogosphere.  I’m ready to tackle a little blog rearranging and organizing, making this site work the most it can for you.

There are a few hundred tutorials and redo’s, but sometimes they can be hard to find, or at least, […]

Those bloggers you know would just get you and you would just get them.

In. real. life.

Meet Karianne.

She and her fam took the plunge for […]

some blog updates to know

By |February 22nd, 2012|

Hi there, friends!

There are a few changes around this blog of mine that I wanted you guys to be aware of.

Something small but really exciting to me–we’ve added “home” to the tagline of perfectly imperfect.

Obviously, most of what I write about involves home, so I […]

a perfectly imperfect blog story

By |November 11th, 2011|

You know how you’ll hear a designer or another creative say, “I’ve been rifling through fabric bins since I was a kid,” or “I’ve been painting as long as I can remember.”

I was not that kid.

I was studious, athletic, and always purchased a matching set.  Always.

I to the kea, P to the Dub, and BHG

By |March 17th, 2011|

It’s been a busy couple of weeks around here, and I don’t know how in the world Layla, Ashley, and Rhoda convinced me to drive to Atlanta and back in a day last weekend, but they did.

And it was F. U. N.

Like I wish I could bottle that kind of fun.











We started our […]

Something I’m so excited about getting started is the Community here at perfectly imperfect.  I wanted a way for us to be able to chat more, and a way to showcase your questions and work.  You’ll just register as a user, and be able to add topics and help each other out.  It’s also a […]

Hello WordPress

By |February 28th, 2011|

Well it’s quite different over here.

I’m absolutely in love with the new look…what do you think???

There’s still the process of updating all the photos and organizing all posts under categories, but I think Tony did a great job of getting most all of it available to you.   Until then, feel free to use one of the […]

Some Changes In The Works

By |December 26th, 2010|

This year has brought about so many changes for us as a family, and for me on a personal and business level.  A huge part of that has been the starting of this blog, which I shared with you the other day.And this guy, well, he pretty much blew me away this last year.  All […]
