P.S. Aren’t you dying to read about those red velvet cupcakes?
Q: Item of clothing you can’t live without? This is a tough one because I have several things on heavy rotation. But if I can only chose one, I’d have to go with my BDG jeans. Years ago, I wore dresses everyday. But as time goes on, I’ve become more a t-shirt and jeans kind of gal.
Q: Favorite tool in your creative arsenal? Definitely my alphabet rolling rubber stamp. My mom got it for me for Christmas last year, and I use it for all kinds of projects. It’s super fun to play around with. Other than that, I’d have to go with a notepad and a pen (as boring as that sounds). I love writing down my ideas on paper and then transferring them to the computer later. I get my best thinking done with a pen and paper.
Q: Totally obsessed with… These playful knit stools from Claire Anne O’Brien. I am not even sure I could bring myself to sit on them. But they’d sure look good in our home.
Q: Currently craving? Red velvet cupcakes. As always. I am dangerously obsessed with the ones from Cami Cakes (here in Jacksonville). But those jeans that I can’t live without are starting to hate me for it.
Q: Currently working on? A couple of projects that I hope to roll out over the next several months. Can’t say much about them right now, because I decided to keep these tight-lipped until they are closer to completion. But I can say that one of those projects is a blog redesign, and the other two are completely new.
