A Peek into the Studio – A varied palette

This time of the year is one of the most exciting in the studio.  We find ourselves working on some of the most varied color palettes of the year.  The mix of colors is a result of finishing up projects from everything like late fall invitations and accessories to early spring invitations and summer 2010 […]


Artful Admirations – Palomas Nest

Back in 2007 when I first started writing this blog I stumbled upon these lovely little ringbearer bowls on etsy.  I fell in love with their simplicity of form and material and the simple message of love each seemed to bear.  Well here we are 2 years later where the creations of Caroline of Palomas […]


Out and About this weekend

It is not often that I have a chance to meet my clients face to face. The only regional interaction I have with prospective brides is at the handful of wedding shows I participate in each year. I relish these shows as I am able to translate the Momental online experience into a live experience. […]


Feeling alive, getting inspired.

Last night, I posted an interesting question on Twitter.  Certainly not a question that has never been asked before, but an interesting one just the same.  The question was simple –  “what makes you feel most alive in your work?”  I immediately thought of the question I am asked so often – “what inspires you”?  […]


A Peek into the Studio – Custom Wedding Certificate

Nicole contacted me earlier this year after reading an interview I did for The Bride’s Cafe.  She had a very special request and hoped I could help.  Nicole envisioned a custom, hand-painted wedding certificate allowing space for each wedding guest to sign as witness to their marriage.  She explained her color palette included bold jewel […]

A Peek into the Studio – Sneak Peek at Painted Paper Bouquets

For the past few weeks my Mom and I  have been involved in a special little project.  I had this idea to create bouquets made entirely from hand-painted watercolor paper.  So last weekend we headed out to local markets to find vintage elements to adorn these creations.  I have always been secretly obsessed with old […]


Change is good

I have been wanting a change for my Current Projects gallery for some time now.   Today is the day. After weeks of scribbling new name ideas on paper with no truly fabulous results, a dinner with my Mom was all I needed to dream up the perfect name for my Current Projects gallery.  We […]


Artful Admiration – Samantha Robinson

I stumbled upon this website while reading one of my favorite blogs, Unruly Things.   Samantha Robinson is a porcelain artist whose website is one of the most innovative I have seen in some time.    I just adore the pencil-sketchy-casual feel with pops of unexpected color. Dive into her website to find lovely porcelain vessels […]


Happy Labor Day!

I realized yesterday that Labor Day weekend is just upon us!   The fact that I did not realize the Holiday was this weekend,  made me think…perhaps I need to slow down a bit.   I found this image from one of my favorite artists, Gustav Klimt (more on him next week) and it made […]
