I've been in my hometown, Scottsdale, AZ, since Wednesday and am certainly feeling the desert love. This inspiration board is for my Dakota suite which you saw some designs for on Monday. As I work on my wedding collection that is launching in September (!!!) I have been creating characters to design each stationery suite around. This character is a lover of both the desert and sea. Hope it inspires you as well. Have a beautiful weekend!

xx, Mae

I would love to have #7 in my house and #11 to hold my stuff! This is a great inspiration board and the name of your new suite is so fitting for your concept!

I love the theme of combining desert with the sea... great juxtaposition. I'm so happy that you're blogging again, and I'm excited to keep reading about your new collection. Congrats on becoming an aunt as well, by the way :o) Have a happy weekend & happy anniversary, too!!!

That's a really great idea - to create a character that you can design for. And I love the colour of that envelope clutch!
