People Magazine details the props I styled for Blake Shelton's latest music video

I love my job as a prop styler and set decorator for music videos and commercials based in Nashville. It’s easy to get caught up in the craziness of this industry, but I love finding myself stopped in a moment, realizing I am in some bizarre and absurd circumstance that I definitely could not have anticipate when I woke up that morning. You never know what a day will bring.

Near the end of the standard 12-hour prep day to gather all the props and dressings for the following day’s shoot, I realized I would be making margaritas and cooking fajitas with Blake Shelton on set. It was definitely one of those, ‘OK, my job is pretty damn fun” moments.

However, endlessly sweeping up eight bouquets’ worth of rose petals was another story.

’90s Nostalgia List #1

Been a bit obsessed with BuzzFeed Rewind lately and thought I’d share a few gems of my childhood I’ve come across today. 

1. American Girl Holiday Catalog 1998 - I specifically remember this one! American Girl was the best thing ever. All those tiny little accessories.

2. American Girl Today - This logo, the Mini Grin Pins…it was all so awesome and I was obsessed.

3. Magic Attic Doll - Allison - I never got an actual American Girl Doll (who could afford those things anyways?!) so I got a Magic Attic Doll complete with key bracelet for her and a key necklace for me! We were so cool.

4. 1995 Starcastle tea party set - Each tower was a tea cup and the whole thing was a tea pot somehow. It was so pink & sparkly and I loved it!

5. Totally Hair Barbie - I specifically remember owning this one. She was too cool.

6. Skydancer - Pull the string and she went flying off! Often used as a weapon by my older brother.

7. Sally Secrets - This doll had compartments all over her that held stickers and stamps. I remember something about her shoes came apart and things in her belly. But it was all about that outfit…

9. Lil Miss Makeup - She had this pink plastic wand that dispersed plastic gems with velcro on the back that stuck to her velcro dress. This was one of my favorites.

10. Creepy Crawlers - Ok, this was my brother’s toy but we had a lot of fun with it. It also doubled as a light inside our forts we would build.
