From the pages of my holiday book Creatively Christmas

HI everyone! I can’t believe it’s been2 years since my holiday book Creatively Christmas has come out! if you had asked me 4 years ago if I ever thought I would actually be a published author, I would have laughed at the idea. Now, I am working on Book 2 and a fictional book as well,I have a stencil line, and licensed products at places like Wayfair and Kess Inhouse, as well as One Bella Casa. Seriousness, if you are just starting out creatively, and you have dreams, follow them. Every little bit you do adds up. My next big dream is to have my designs in  Anthropologie ,Pottery barn and Target. Hopefully in another 4 years, I’ll be able to say I did that too (fingers crossed.)!

*Update… I now have my own retail store where I sell my own designs. Pretty crazy!!

  1. I have to share that when I received your book (I believe I pre-ordered and waited :), we had just moved for the first time as adults – away from all our family. Because we were new to the area, we also rented an apt for the first time ever. I remember sitting and pouring through the book, soaking up all the ideas. Doing that brought me out of my funk of not wanting to even decorate that apt. I made the pom garland and strung it all around the wall to wall patio doors. Every time I entered that little apt, it made me happy to see it. It is a beautiful and inspiring book 🙂

  2. I have it and I love it. Looking forward to your appearances in Anthro, PB and Target. Then I will tell people, “I know her!!!”
