Pattern Journey

Well hello stranger! I know that’s what you guys are thinking 😉 My art and design has taken a back seat lately to my number 1 priority – my baby boy, Leo Hudson 🙂 He’s was born Sept. 18th, but has pulled my attention away since January. I was considered a high risk pregnancy due to a miscarriage in the past and he gave me several other scares as well along the… Read More

I’ve been painting and drawing a lot lately – working at refining my artistic style (now that I know what I WANT it to be). It’s interesting to think of art that way. Many would think that whatever we naturally create would be what our style is, and that’s true to some degree. However, I kept feeling that a lot of my work was versions of my style and not necessarily something that… Read More

The keys to brand success are self-definition, transparency, authenticity and accountability. –Simon Mainwaring Maybe it’s no big deal to share this, or maybe it is- but I’m going to anyways. I’ve been working at building my brand Zeryndipity, but as I’ve changed things up this past year, it just doesn’t feel right anymore. When I first began Zeryndipity I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t have a clear vision. I just had the idea… Read More

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” ~ Steve Jobs Last year I began on this pattern journey of mine and… Read More

I recently shared that I’m pregnant, so I’m obviously growing a belly along with this baby growing inside me, but that’s not the type of growing I’m going to discuss today. I mean who really wants to read a post about a growing belly? I will however share images once I start brainstorming for decorating the nursery, because that’s always fun and going to be inspiring some new designs of my own… Read More

As I’m getting back into the groove of conducting my own trend research, I couldn’t help but share the awesomeness from some of Anthropologie’s March 2014 Catalog. I’m absolutely loving the hand-dyed, vintage aesthetic. Gorgeous. There’s a beautiful global feel paired with tradition and a touch of modern edge for a fresh feel. It’s the perfect balance really, in my opinion anyways 😉 Until next week… EJ

I’m embarrassed at my myself for saying I was going to begin posting every Tuesday and then…..didn’t. My mom gets onto me and states she can’t stand bloggers who aren’t consistent. So, I’m going to get better – for my mother of course 😉 It’s funny to be compare myself to a blogger, because frankly, I haven’t really considered myself a blogger – but I am. It’s just secondary to being a… Read More

“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Just recently (Jan. 16th to be exact) I found out that I’m now part of A Fresh Bunch (AFB)!!!! AFB is a place to buy and license art from a global bunch of designers (which now includes me! yippee!) I’m super excited and yet also a bit….fearful..? I… Read More

“I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.” -Charles Dickens What a year this has been! This time last year I had just finished with Monica Lee’s, “Smart Creative Dreaming- A Guide for the Practical Dreamer“, and I had finally gained clarity on where I wanted my creative career to go –… Read More

“I’m too overwhelmed, I’m not sure what to do next.” “I just can’t seem to focus now that my desk is moved, my work flow isn’t the same.” I cringe realizing these words were coming from my mouth the last few days. The last month has been a whirlwind for me as I helped host a huge fundraiser party to kick off a toy drive for Toys For Tots for my office… Read More
