Simplicity 

 sim·plic·i·ty –  1.  freedom from complexity;  2. absence of luxury, pretentiousness, ornament, etc.; plainness: a life of simplicity

A life of simplicity.   What does that look like?  In my humble (simple) opinion, it looks like a life that has room or space to it.   Unhurried, uncluttered and unstressed. 

Gardening and foraging at home to create with, fits a simple life.  It causes you to unplug, get your hands dirty, and slow down. 

This foraged bougainvillea placed in a handmade ceramic pot, is an example of simple.  By using one type of flowering branches, loosely placed, there is a simplicity that is restful to look at.  Try it!

Hooray Magazine Feature

What an honor to have Hooray Magazine pick up a shoot I styled for a Mother – Daughter Brunch.  The shoot was a dream to style and dream up.  It was a labor of love, that featured my daughter, myself, and my dear friend Laura and her daughters.  What a talented group of ladies.  We all used our talents to make this shoot so lovely.  Here is the link to the article Mothers+Daughters.  Thanks Roma Bea Images for the great photos!

Wedding season is upon us! It is a joyous time of year. This year has been busy here at Studio Mamas! Between screen printing and florals for events, I’ve been hoppin’. These gorgeous wedding invitation suites, and journals, which were screen printed for a missionary to sell for her fundraising, are just a few examples of the work happening here. What a joy to work with such sweet designers and brides!!! I love it!!
