A few years ago I discovered the amazing Ashley Brooke of Ashley Brooke Designs. A few months back while doing research for a client, I was reintroduced to Ashley Brooke Designs and instantly fell in love with her Custom Illustration Collection. As a result, I contacted Ashley and we began working on a custom design for yours truly. I wanted a sketch that showcased “Geomyra.” I asked Ashley to incorporate my daughter Payton into the design as she is a big part of my work day. Every chance that she gets, she makes a point to sit in “mommy’s chair” and mimic my actions.To begin the design process, Ashley’s team sent over a brief questionnaire for me to complete. I sent over a few images of my everyday essentials and Ashley got to work on my design.My outfit: I love a crisp button down collared shirt. My favorite is made by Ralph Lauren. Of course I had to incorporate my J.Crew No. 2 Pencil skirt. To complete my ensemble, we incorporated Christian Louboutins. As I am attached to my iPad and never leave home without it, it only made sense to include my iPad in the sketch. I am an avid reader, researcher, baker and Christian. We added a stack of my favorite books to the design: 1. The Holy Bible. 2. The Complete Magnolia Baker Cookbook 3. Mindy Weiss’ The Wedding Book. My Redskins coffee mug fits quite nicely next to the bouquet of pink hydrangeas (my favorite flower). My all white desk and chair mimic the furniture in my home office. Ashley included my David Yurman pieces, Michele watch and my wedding band and engagement ring.
I am super delighted with my custom illustration and the awesome customer service from Ashley and her team. Be sure to head over to Ashley’s website to check out her latest designs and download the free monthly wallpaper for your smartphone!
