"Let's Eat Cake" Birthday Card for Trader Joe's

If I weren't an artist, I would fancy being a cake decorator. I an so amazed with the works of art created by cake decorators. How fun it must be to create tasty treats that are a feast for the eyes as well. These one of a kind cakes are like sculptures and the frosting is the paint medium, (very similar to thick-bodied acrylic paint). I may paint a series of cakes on canvas some day. Until then, I was inspired to paint these watercolor floral cakes for my "Let's eat cake" greeting card for Trader Joe's. Enjoy!

Paris for Ross

Bonjour! One of my favorite cities of all time has to be Paris. I have found that when I am there, no matter which direction I look, there is a feast for the eyes. Around every corner are architectural details, exquisite boutiques, charming cafes, works of art, fabulous fashion and beautiful fresh flowers. It is definitely time to go back again...sigh...

Until then, I was able to design these Paris stackable storage boxes and photo album, available in Ross stores now. If you are a Paris love like me and can't make it there anytime soon, you can find these Paris products at Ross for yourself or as a great gift for a Paris lover you know!

Au Revoir, Corinne xo

 

 

 

 

Honoring Moms on Mother's Day

Mother's Day is right around the corner and it is such a special time to celebrate and honor moms and those who selflessly give their motherly love. I truly cannot think of a higher calling than that of raising children, who in fact, become our future. Children are our greatest legacy and raising them requires love, patience, sacrifice, compassion and a whole lot of other adjectives! Without a doubt, it has made me a better person and fulfilled my life in endless ways. Make no mistake, it is also the toughest and most rewarding job you will ever have! I am forever grateful to my mother and grandmother who by their loving example, taught me how to be a loving mom. It is a true honor for me that in some small way, I get to create designs that acknowledge motherhood.

Succulent Cactus Birthday Card

The climate here in Laguna Beach seems to be perfect for cactus (or cacti?) and succulents to thrive year round. It's no wonder I had such fun designing this greeting card for Trader Joe's. It was a great excuse to paint these inspiring plants and design them into a greeting card!

I hope you're able to find one at your local Trader Joe's and send a succulent cactus birthday card to someone in your life!

Enjoy!

Hello Greeting Card for Trader Joe's

I feel truly blessed to live in a place where I am surrounded by beauty. Living in Laguna Beach for me is both inspiring and therapeutic to my soul. I don't have to go far to be inspired to paint fragrant flowers or lush tropical leaves. This little Hello greeting card that I designed for Trader Joe's was simply that, saying hello to the beauty around me.

A little reminder to take the time to see the beauty in your environment and the inner beauty of the people in your life. It is all a gift. Say hello to beauty and love!

Valentine's Day Reminds Us of What's Important

Some may argue that Valentine's Day has become a commercial holiday and perhaps that is so, but it is still one of my favorite days of the year because of one thing...love. Every year I am reminded of how blessed I am to have the love of family and friends in my life.

The busyness of life can sometimes cause us to forget the sweet little things that make life so special. Whether it's spending precious moments with family, visiting with friends, celebrating life's events or cuddling with our pets and loved ones, these little moments of today become our special memories of tomorrow. That is why I say Valentine's Day is a good thing because it helps to remind us of what is really important.
