A Sunny Social at Urbanic

a sunny afternoon + urbanic stationery line // smitten studioA few weeks ago we launched an A Sunny Afternoon paper line in collaboration with everyone’s favorite LA stationery boutique, Urbanic. (a few selects shown above). We also teamed up to host an “End of Summer Social” that brought bloggers, design lovers, and party goers together in celebration of the partnership. Right now the stationery is only available in the store but I will give you the heads up when you can purchase them online!

Below are photos from the event shot by Joanne Pio and don’t miss the video, at the end, that captures all the fun of the night by California Electric.

end of summer social!

urbanic & a sunny afternoon summer social inviteI’m so excited to be co-hosting the “end of summer social” with Urbanic this year! If you have been to one of their events before, you know how much fun they are and we have a great line-up of vendors to help make it extra special. We will also be debuting the first ever A Sunny Afternoon paper goods with an exclusive Urbanic product collaboration! I also created a limited edition “picnic” print that the first 50 people in the door will be gifted! So if you’re in LA, come and celebrate the last days of summer with us, Thursday, September 4th… would love to see you there!

April in review

april 2013What a month… here is a look at what I have been up to lately. A few of the highlights were getting to work on a couple photo shoots with some talented people and seriously awesome animals (I got to hang with Zebras and Alpaca!), working on and celebrating my dear friends wedding, and having Rupe recovered enough after surgery for our first meal out together.

from the weekend: check up & getting back to work

04.15-weekendWe headed back down to orange county on Friday for Rupe’s first post-op check up since being released from the hospital and was happy to hear the doctor say everything is looking great and healing right on track. I was however a little less happy when we misplaced the car in the parking garage. oops! With Rupe getting along a little better everyday things are slowly starting to get back to normal and I was also excited to be able to get some work done, planning an upcoming shoot with Urbanic.
