MYSTERIOUS DANCER

Last night, I saw the whisper of a ballerina dancing at my door…

She dances to my brother’s music

Remember when she was dancing on my sketchbook?

FRAMED AND MATTED GIVEAWAY / NOW CLOSED

F&M_2

Framing artwork, especially your own, is no easy task! There are an infinite amount of choices, the prices are usually outrageous, and it can take a good amount of time before your final piece is ready. I decided to give Framed & Matted a shot, and I was beyond impressed!

I ordered the free frame and mat samples on their site, and as soon as they arrived, I knew exactly what I wanted. I love when you’re presented a handful of quality choices (having too many choices make decisions ten times more difficult). You build your frame around your artwork dimensions online, and voilá! It only took about a week and a half for the frame to arrive. I set the artwork inside the frame (super easy), but you also have the option to mail in your piece for them to place inside the frame for you.

My framed piece turned out beautifully.

This week I’m giving away a limited edition print to one reader, which Framed & Matted will have framed in the frame of your choice. Head over to instagram to find out how to win!

*Must enter by Friday, January 31st*

WINTER DREAMS

Watching the snow fall…

Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 11.49.00 AM

There’s always been something about snow that gives me the most wonderful energy. I can’t remember a time that the sense of wonder and excitement didn’t come over me as soon as I got the news of an incoming storm. Of course, growing up in Georgia, that didn’t happen too often.

Since living in the northeast, my love affair with snow has not faded even the tiniest bit. If it’s snowing, there’s a good chance I’m out wandering through it’s momentary beauty.

Lucky for me, snow seems to be a common theme this winter in New York City. It surprises me how negative snow’s reputation is around here. Yes it can get messy, it’s accompanied by bitter cold air, repetitive shoveling, etc… but if you stop to look around, it’s really one of the most beautiful sights to see. Your entire world blanketed in a soft glowing white. Snow casts a silence over the city like nothing else… with just the sounds of the winter wind and crunch of fresh snow under your feet.

I hope this inspires you to look at snow differently (if you have a negative view of it), and see what a truly beautiful gift it is!
