At Home With on Ali Bronska, who lives in rental home in Fairway, Kan.


I thought I would share an article I worked on a couple months back with Andrea from INK Magazine, a local Kansas City magazine, as a part of their At Home series.  It was so fun to talk with her about my style and my love for interior design.  You can read the entire feature here.  I love that I now have pictures of our first house (since we now longer live in this house- as of just a few weeks ago).

Honestly, Patrick and I started completely from scratch when getting things for our place.  We moved in with two beds, some knick knacks, and our clothes. It is so fun to see how things finally came together.  We were still working on filling the space when I was given the opportunity to move, so for now most of what you see is in storage, but hopefully everything will be used in our next house we settle down in.  Hope you enjoy and thanks to Andrea for the great article.

Here are a few of the sources for the pictures above:

Day 20: A Dash of Fun Fonts

Today I have been working on some crafty additions for my Christmas presents (those will have to be kept secret) and I decided I needed some new fonts. Here are a few I downloaded from here.  The best part was that they were all free! Only 6 more days until the big day or as Patrick would like to say only 2 more days until the big day (his birthday!)

Wall of Art

This weekend we just found out we are able to stay in our place for another year..Great News. A couple months ago I stop buying stuff for the place because I was not sure how long we were going to be able to stay.  Well… we have a big blank wall on the dining room that needs some love.  I am thinking about making an art collage wall.  I can’t wait to fill the blank “canvas”.

A Little Painting

So this past weekend I decided to take up a new hobby, painting.  I have always loved drawing and photography but I have never been the greatest painter.  I got the idea for the painting a while you remember this post about Coco & Hearts artist’s home, Jen.  Well my inspiration came from her Lipstick Dot paintings. The best part of the project is that it only cost a total of $25 dollars! I may not be a professional but I think it turned out pretty well (sorry for the bad quality photos, they came from my iphone.)

Rock Chalk

Since this weekend is the Big Twelve Tournament in Kansas City, I thought it was appropriate to show some school pride.  Sav-Art is a local artist from Kansas City, who I just adore. I think he may love Lawrence as much as I do. The Wheel, Allen Fieldhouse, and the Delta Gamma house just bring me back to a great place!

Wake Up And Smell the Daisies



Happy Day back to work! I am just in love with my new Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume I got for Christmas.  Maybe because of how cute the bottle is or the sweet smell.  Either way I want to collect all four! Possible Valentine’s Day idea anyone??

Illustrator Extraordinaire





Jenny Bowers, Illustrator Extraordinaire! I love her use of bright colors that allow her illustrations to just pop off the page. And especially the elegant and girly subject matter. She is the one behind the new Kate Spade stationary and 2011 planner.  These illustrations would look great in my new office!
