It’s Easier to Stay Positive When You Have a Little Help.

Over the past couple years, I experienced an unprecedented amount of change (good and bad), but there were a few things that helped me stay sane: my husband, interior design… and a little bourbon. At that time, my husband and I were obsessed with decorating our home in mid-century modern furnishes (admittedly, we still are). When Christmas came around, I thought it would be fun to pay homage to my three influencers by mashing them into one illustration.

The Result:

A vintage cocktail and wrapping paper design inspired by the birth year of Maker’s Mark (1958), and a phrase motivated by my husband’s ability to sweetly tell me to suck it up and be happy!
