Black Bordeaux Holiday Cowl Scarf

A custom cowl scarf for my friend Anne.

She mentioned wanting a pink and black cowl scarf, so I decided to knit the cowl half and half....After discussing with Anne, she decided that cranberry and black would be the best colors so she could wear it with her black winter coat.

wrapped with more black showing....

...or with more cranberry showing, you choice!

Eliminating Christmas Chaos

Not that I have a family of barbarians, knocking each other over to open gifts, but I thought this would be a great idea for larger families or fun for kids to search for their gold bows.

This year I have color coded my gifts. Ridiculous I know! 
Ladies have different colored bows and men have different colored ribbon.

Pearls Are A Girls Best Friend

What an elegant and classy design, made specially for my friend Tyler. 

 I had never made a 5 strand necklace, so I really enjoyed the challenge in gathering different supplies and learning how to assemble these beautiful pieces!

Tea For Two... 11 others. 
Our annual tea at the Jefferson took place last week. What a fun tradition!
 I love the Richmond Blend tea, cinnamony with cloves :)

For those of you wondering, yes, I made my shawl. 
They are NOW available to order through ClarissaB Designs.

Form Does Not Have To Function

Last month I attended our annual Interior Designer's Convention in Baltimore.
I love pointless designs... no seriously... this is beautiful. 
I am so inspired by this skirt made from fabric samples.

Stay tuned for more pointless designs.

Everyone's familiar with the crazy Target lady right? 

Well, she is my favorite commercial of the season and
