whenever i draw couples, i can’t hardly wait to compare their photographs to my finished illustration. it’s a creative moment that i cherish and rarely share with anyone other than michael. but today you get a peek of the process thanks to megan (of greetings from texas), her husband danny, and a team that included awake and BHLDN.
isn’t meg’s dress beautiful? i loved drawing the intricate pattern and the delicate veil. the hollywood curls framed her face perfectly. please visit her blog for more photos and styling credits.
thank you megan and danny for inviting me to be a special part of your day. happy anniversary!

on sunday, march 10th, join me in austin for an afternoon of crafting with kollabora. kollabora is a new sewing, knitting, and jewelry making community geared towards hip, fashionable women, and they love bloggers (and our readers).
my fellow hostesses are valerie (of charmed valerie), megan (of greetings from texas), and kirsten (of triple max tons). our venue is stella says go (austin’s it-girl shoe store), and modcloth is attending, too. i hope you were able to RSVP— we’re already sold out!
kirsten, megan, valerie, and i will show you how to make three kinds of bracelets. i created the above bracelet in an ombre-valentine palette of white, pink, and red, but the design possibilities are endless. if you’re not on the list, don’t sweat! we’ll post tutorials on kollabora.
see you at the domain for our saturday shop hop, and say hello on sunday at stella says go.

we will take a group photo and street style photos afterwards in the starbucks courtyard before heading over to neiman marcus. don’t miss the CUSP presentation! you’ll get a chance to ogle their beautiful racks (i already drooled over equipment and joie) and hear more about the august conference from our co-founder indiana.
