One Room Challenge Final Week

Here we are: the final week of the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge! I have had so much fun designing my almost three year old's room and making it a 'big girl room' that I hope she enjoys it for years to come!  Liv and George wearing their new cute pajamas from The Horseshoe Crab - they are the ultimate in monogramming and I can not recommend them enough!  Perhaps because my studio tends to be wildly colorful, my home's interior is a little more placid and crisp.  But I wanted my daughter's room to be anything but that. It truly was the most fun space to create and I just had the best time working with all the color.  Liv...

One Room Challenge Week Five!

This week for the One Room Challenge I am taking tons of art I have collected over the years and been gifted by friends and making a fun gallery wall in Liv's room.  I have incorporated in Three Dimensional Pieces from Gray Garden Designs Paper Mache Collection, a JuJu Mask I created for a previous One Room Challenge, some pieces from my wildly talented friend, Miles Purvis, and some other cool finds I've stumbled across.  I had to call in the reinforcements to help me, so I looped in my gal Amanda Louise to help me place the art and design the gallery wall.  She is a gallery wall master, so I just left her to her work and and...

Flora & Form Pop Up

I have had the creative itch to flip my art studio Vino & van Gogh over to a 'soft' gallery and last week I finally pulled it together to make it happen.  With the help of the incredible artists I looped in: Mary Frances Flowers, Maggie Grace Art, Gray Garden Designs, Think Kind Candles, Knotted Turkish Rugs & Suanne Hall Art and the styling magic of Amanda Louise Interiors, we had an incredible event!  Thank you to all of the wonderful people who came out to support us with this show.  It was a huge success and we will for sure be doing it again late summer or early fall!  And I must add a very big thank you to Courtney Malone...

One Room Challenge Week Four!

This week for the One Room Challenge I'm talking ART for Liv's Big Girl Room.  I have decided to go with a big galley wall because I have tons of excess art I need to place and I think it will be light, bright and cheery for her.  She told me she wanted 'Colorful Horns' so I grabbed these fallow deer horns and painted them.  I also thought it would be fun to do a version of the 'Livingston Family Crest' for her so I did this watercolor inspired by Liv.    When I was in first grade, my painting was selected to be made into greeting cards for Scottish Rite Children's Hospital in Atlanta.  The proceeds went to the hospital,...

Footprint/Handprint Ornaments

I have always tried take a few hours to make a special ornament with my children and the kids in their classrooms as a special keepsake.  This year, I made Handprint Ornaments with my daughter's two year old class and Footprint Ornaments wit my son's infant class and they turned out so well, I thought it would be fun to share them.  using footprints is a good idea for infants to 2.5 year olds They were very easy to make and you could tweak them based around the supplies you have on hand (meaning you could create them on a different sized ornament, use different ribbon, or sub out a fluffy red pom pom instead of a button for the...
