HOLIDAY PALETTE
Black, White, Pink, Gold, Silver

I’m definitely behind schedule but I’m bringing it full speed ahead from now until Christmas! I thought this palette of mine would be tough to gather together, but surprisingly there are bits and pieces and ideas everywhere to pull it off! I’m definitely going to try those D.I.Y. ombre candles and D.I.Y. clear glass ornaments with gold glitter. I’ll be sure to share the final results, but in the meantime…

CHRISTMAS CARD
5 Minute Photo Shoot

Although exhausted Monday after returning from Miami, I had to snap into action upon realizing that Christmas is but a mere two weeks away! What?! Cue me scrambling to get the house decorated, Christmas cards ordered, gift list updated…time for baking cookies? I don’t know if we’ll have time! Hence, yesterday morning I subjected my daughter to a quick photo shoot before school – literally, hanging a white sheet on the wall of the dining room, pulling out the camera, and handing her a prop that I picked up the day before at Target. Lights, camera, action!

PACKING LIST
Art Basel Miami

I’m soooo excited…checking off another bucket list item to close out 2013 with my first trip to Art Basel Miami! I do admit, however, when I first decided to go, I had NO IDEA it was such a scene to be seen. Cue me last week scrambling to figure out what fabulous attire I could bring along! Miami in December? Edgy, tropical, winter? A fashion conundrum to say the least. My solution: build a wardrobe around muse Kelly Wearstler’s artsy style with black and white pieces for work and play that can go from day to night (because you never know where the day can lead!)…

ART IN 5
Ellsworth Kelly
(New Column!)

“Study for ‘Combe II’” 1950, cut and pasted colored paper and pencil, Ellsworth Kelly

I’m off to Art Basel Miami tomorrow (hurrah!) so I thought this would be a perfect time to try out a new column: “Art in 5″! I’ve been writing “Design Under the Influence” on La Dolce Vita for a few years, and after 30 installments, I wanted to continue to bring something unique and useful to my and Paloma’s readers. Utilizing my Art History degree, I’ll be covering an art period or artist every month, with five quick bits on a “cheat sheet” of sorts you can easily pin, reference, save, etc.! First up, Ellsworth Kelly

Thankful…
(A Little Note)

Thankful for this little munchkin today, that I get to be her mommy and every day be amazed at her growth and personality, be her audience as she sings and dances with such heartfelt/closed-eyes emotion, laugh out loud at the funniest things she says in the most serious way, wonder how she can bring out happiness and warmth in everyone around her, let her be lovable and cuddly and excited even when I may not be. Because you see, there was a time when I wasn’t so sure she would ever come. And when I think back to that time, it makes me even more thankful that she finally did.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your gifts too!
