New Blog, New Name!

EEP! It has been some time since I have posted here. Trust that I have been keeping busy, making art and helping* the boy to ready my new blog for visitors!

There is still a lot of work to be done, but I think we have reached the point where I am now ready to share. Please know that the space is still a work-in-progress, so you will be seeing lots of changes over the coming weeks..

Anyway, I hope you will join me over at Pretty Ingrid! Please update your bookmarks etc. with the URL below.

Thank you all :)

* By helping, I mean acting as the cheerleader while A. brings my design to life. He has done all of the REAL work. Thanks love!

Pretty Ingrid Has a New Home!


For the past several months I have been designing the new website for Pretty Ingrid. My boy has been working really hard writing the code for the site (from scratch!), bringing to life my vision for Pretty Ingrid's new home.

We finally launched the site last Thursday, and I'm so thrilled with the result! There are still some unfinished details here and there, but I'm just too excited not to share :)


From the site you can now access my shop, blog, gallery, Facebook page, Pinterest boards and Flickr account. I do want to mention that this blog will soon have a new home at Pretty Ingrid. Right now you can access A Random Walk from Pretty Ingrid, but soon I will be making the switch to a new blog that has a more seamless look with the new site. Stay tuned!

So, here is Pretty Ingrid's new home! Please, have a look around; I would love to hear what you think.

P.S. A HUGE thank you to my boy for working so hard to create a creative space where I can share my work with others. This would not be possible without your endless support! xoxo

Cupcake Anatomy

This print is just too fun not to share. Cupcakes are one of my favorite things in life, so it's no surprise that I'm completely smitten with this "anatomy" poster. The frosting and sprinkle toppers are just too adorable! I'm feeling peckish..

New Work and Making Plans

This past weekend I was quite the busy bee. I finished a new piece (above), which I will have in the shop this evening. I might list a few versions of this print; the oval one, above, and a few different sizes of the original rectangular piece. I can really envision this light, feminine painting hanging above a makeup table or dresser. That was really my inspiration for the image.

The boy and I also spent a lot of time on a larger project that, *fingers crossed*, I will be able to share with you by the end of the week. I'm REALLY excited about how the whole thing is coming together..

On Sunday we sat down to do a bit of planning for this weekend's trip to Boston. It's so funny; we have been together for more than seven years and we have only ever taken day trips! We thought we would start small with a weekend getaway to the city. We are staying at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, which looks like such a fun place. 

A. surprised me by setting up a hair appointment at Shag, a salon I have wanted to go to for years. I'm going to let them work their magic - no restrictions :) I have an appointment with a cutter who specializes in short hair, so I couldn't be more excited!

We also plan to stroll around Harvard Square, do a bit of shopping and eat some fantastic food. If  you are familiar with the Boston area and have suggestions for great places to eat, shop, etc. please share!

I hope your week is getting off to a wonderful start :)

Dressing in Grayscale

Happy Friday!

How are you, lovelies? I'm so happy the weekend is here. I have a few projects I want to finish in the next few days, so I'm looking forward to the time off. Hopefully I will have a couple of things to share with you next week :)

I actually added both of these gray pieces to my closet over the past week. I think the wedges will be the perfect shoe with the two dresses I got for Spring. I'm not a fan of heels, but these aren't high and the wedge is substantial. I just love the shape and the peep toe; perfect for bright pedicures!

I'm really excited about the top, too. I love the roomy cut and bright little pops of color. Don't the ribbon pieces around the collar look like bunting? I can't wait to wear this piece with some skinny jeans and bright flats. It's a fun, artsy warm weather look :)

I'm usually drawn to brightly colored clothing, but I think these pieces will be really versatile staples. What is catching your eye for Spring?

Today marks the beginning of my twenty-fifth year. It's pouring outside, but that's OK. I had a giant piece of birthday cake for breakfast*, so I'm feeling full and happy this morning :)

If this rain doesn't freeze into a sheet of ice by tonight, the boy and I are going to celebrate with a nice dinner out and perhaps a trip to the book store.

Twenty-five definitely feels like a milestone. I'm in my mid-twenties now - crazy! There are some big changes coming for me this year that I'm really excited about, so I'm welcoming this birthday with open arms :)

P.S. This hand painted doily is a new card design that I hope to have up in the shop within the next few days. Hope you like it! 

*Thank you, hun, for making me a cake! xoxo

Saturday Style File: Week Nine

Happy Saturday!

I hope you are enjoying the weekend so far :) My favorite outfit of Week Nine was Wednesday's look. I received the Mango dress I ordered on Tuesday evening, and I knew I wasn't going to be able to wait until Spring to wear it. The dress has a modest length, and plenty of wiggle room through the bottom half which I love. I'm not a fan of dresses that are tight around my legs and hips; it's not the best look for me.

On another note, this week Pretty Ingrid was featured on a blog for the first time! Danielle of The Merriweather Council included one of my pieces in her Weekly Favorites feature. Check it out here :) I am a really big fan of Danielle's work, so this is a big deal for me. Thank you so much, Danielle!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend :)
