Reflecting on #ThePetrichorPaintings, I’m a little bit amazed that just a few months ago these pieces didn’t even exist. They were still visions running through my mind, paint in a tube, gold leaf yet to be laid, pigment yet to be applied, and a blank canvas waiting for its first marks.
Refreshed and inspired by my long weekend at the beach, I now have new visions and dreams running through my mind. New challenges and experiments I want to explore... but first, I’m going to soak in and appreciate this series a bit longer. 💛

Can we say C O L O R ✨ This fun custom (surprise gift) piece was created for a couple getting married in Vegas this week! Kathleen wanted bright colors and the Vegas skyline and I took it from there. Such a fun piece to be a part of. 💒🎲🎰 (24x30) with resin. #jamileighcarterart
Being limited in going out and doing things right now, I have been rummaging through my Grandmother's trunk and found some old 1970s oyster shells (she collected them). I used to dabble in painting when the twins were born, it always soothed my mind. Painting these beauties takes my mind off of my pain (so I have been painting a lot of them 😉). Here is something new I have designed to hold your rings, jewelry, or just a cute decorative piece for your home. These would be a great hostess gift. I would love to hear what you think. Each piece is one of a kind. $32. You can DM me if you are interested. You will be able to find these and my jewelry designs in my etsy store soon (after I am recovered and open my shop back up). #jewelryholder #oystershells #ringholder #hostessgift #birthdaygift #goldleafpainting #glossed #beachtheme #perfectgift #homedecor #vintage #oneofakind #vintagejewelry #artisan #exclusive
The other day I posted about our wedding collection and talked about our gold leaf. I thought I would share this video with you showing how shiny it comes out ❤️ this is something that is really hard to achieve with paint. We also carry silver and rose gold for those beautiful accents on your wood signs ❤️ #naileditdiymiami #goldleaf #theultimatediyexperience
Busy week wrapping up #ThePetrichorPaintings and letting them fly off to their new homes (only TWO pieces remain! — I’m so, so grateful you guys!) with a little extra pressure and a hurried deadline to ship out as we prepare for a whirlwind trip to the beach this weekend for a wedding — that happens to be our five year wedding anniversary, too!
I’ve been hearing a lot about Gratitude Journal these days.. writing out the things you’re grateful for each day to help start your day with a positive mindset. I’ve realized I think my IG account is my very own (and very public) Gratitude Journal.
It wasn’t intentional, but I just can’t help it — just so darn happy. Of course things aren’t always perfect, and there’s lots of goals I have yet to accomplish, but in this moment, I am so utterly content. Five years married, with a beautiful family, and the most satisfying career. Thank you all for being a part of that. 💛

Since becoming a mom, I have become so much more acutely aware of how I spend my time. It’s also a major topic we talk about within @thestudiosource, with so many of members also being moms, trying to balance ALL the things. So, how do we do it
It takes prioritizing. In life, what is most important In business, what tasks are really making an impact to my income
It takes being kind and forgiving with myself.
It’s accepting that I can never do 100% of all the things, but I can do a few things really well if I’m intentional with my time.
It’s realizing there is a season for everything. Right now I’m in the season of patience, and growth, and babies. And if being on top of my family’s laundry is not meant to be in this season — then I can let that go, without feeling like a failure. (And, being immensely grateful for my husband, who so graciously rises to the occasion 💛)
