I’m excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with Chelcey Tate to design a line of prints, drink ware and apparel! It’s been great working on this and, together, we created a collection that’s fun and has a little sass. I like to think I’m pretty witty – so I came up with the phrases and Chelcey turned them into the hand-lettered designs that you see in the photos.
When it comes to quotes – I’m a big believer in being quirky, rather than serious and inspirational. These phrases aren’t meant to be deep and thought provoking. Instead, they are silly and honest – designed to make you smile. Like, “I Pee in Pools”. I mean, come on. I don’t care if you don’t want to admit it – we all do it.
The shoot was exactly like the prints. It was so light hearted and fun – all about being yourself and letting a little loose! Not sure if you’ve received the memo by now, but I LOVE to laugh. Chelcey really got that about me. I’m honest, unapologetic, goofy and witty. Don’t get me wrong, I have a serious side as well, but who wants to read that on their mug on a Monday? Not you – that’s who.
I wanted to stay true to me in this collection – and it wouldn’t be what it is without a few references to vino. Maybe there was even a little Pinot Gris in that mug? Who knows? Oh, wait. I’m supposed to be honest. It was coffee. BORING!
