Busy is good, but I hate when I don't have enough time to blog and catalog my design inspiration and experiences. This time I'll blame in on a few new and exciting projects (yay!) and a little on Uncle Sam and a little thing called income tax (not so yay). I was talking with my friend/accountant tonight about how the reason I'm so unorganized is because I'm a creative left brained person and you can't possibly be both left brained and right brained. That's probably not true, but it's what I tell myself every tax season when I realize just how unorganized I am.
Sunday I went with my good friend and bride-to-be Adrienne to check out the progress of and be fitted for her custom made head piece by Doloris Petunia of Santa Monica. Courtney Miller's home/studio was a creative feast for the eyes. It was so fun and inspiring looking at all of her works in progress and hearing about how she got her start and how her business has exploded this past year. She began selling on Etsy but is now selling her one-of-a-kind out of this world cuffs at Anthropologie. I saw photos of her sparkly creations prior to heading up to her studio, but after seeing them in person, I realize that the photos don't do them justice.
Hand sewn and each piece unique...Courtney is the tops when it comes to stylishly creative. (It must take her a long time to do her taxes too...)
