I am sooo excited that the weekend is just minutes away!!! This week was crazy - in a seriously incredible kind of crazy way for my business - but it's left me feeling the need for a good drink and nap! I'm sure you all feel the same way, so YAY for Friday!!!
I should also note that today was a particularly amazing day that I must keep top secret for a couple weeks, but just know that it involves the Alice in Wonderland backdrop I showed you earlier this week :)
Something that I CAN share with you today - is that I very recently partnered up with BRK ReDesign to sell prints of my work in their GORGEOUS handmade frames!!!

In case you haven't heard of BRK ReDesign, they lovingly create beautiful housewares out of materials reclaimed around Richmond, VA. Bryan and Amanda are the owners & a soon to be married couple from RVA. They create picture frames and other items using materials reclaimed from around Richmond and the surrounding areas.
Here's their bio!
"Bryan spent many years of working in architectural salvage,which fostered a love of reclaiming pieces of homes and buildings that might otherwise be discarded. Whether it is crafting a picture frame from heart-pine flooring or weathered porch-ceiling, finding new life for a hundred-year-old window sash, or using discarded metal to weld garden sculpture, he sees the potential in what most often ends up in a landfill. A love of Richmond and history helps Amanda contribute interesting options for images to fill Bryan's carefully crafted frames. We both love scouring antique and salvage shops to find the perfect materials to create and fill our frames. BRK is a labor of love and we love to collaborate with our clients to realize their vision."
They make a really great team and the perfect company for an artist to team up with! They're also partnered with Studio Two Three artists who have been selling their RVA themed prints in BRK's frames, which is super cool.

I'm really excited to share that my prints will now be sold by BRK ReDesign as well! You can find them at the South of the James Farmers Market, as well as other events that they post on their Facebook page HERE!
In their frames you'll see some of my RVA prints, as well as some of my abstracts! I absolutely love their frames so this is the perfect partnership :) Amanda sent over this quick snapshot the other day to show how my prints look framed - how cool is that bottom one!!! So pumped about this!! :)
BRK ReDesign's work is really impressive and totally unique so be sure to show them some love over on their Facebook page and mark your calendars for the next South of the James Farmers Market!
Also note - that besides when I do the occasional pop-up shop like Creative Marketplace RVA - buying from BRK ReDesign is the only way that you can get 4x6" & 5x7" prints of my work, and many of the prints they have aren't sold in ANY size on my site - so definitely check them out if you're looking for a smaller scale print of anything from the Byrd Theater to the James River :)
