Mud Pie’s Spring Blogger Lunch Party

March 28, 2017

Hey Mud Pie Babes! OMG we had SO much fun at our first annual Mud Pie Blogger Lunch Party. We had seven different bloggers from around the Atlanta area join us in our showroom for a day filled of fun! They first got an exclusive tour of our Spring 2017 Baby and Kids, Living, and Fashion lines by our designers. Then they ate a delicious lunch catered by Sun in My Belly. The ladies had a chance to try on all of our Spring 2017 Fashion, play around with different tablescape set ups and even had a chance to get their hair done at the braid bar with stylists from Fifth & Mae Salon. It was an absolutely amazing day and we cant wait to do it again!

Spring 2017: Watercolor

March 17, 2017

Intro

 

Did you know that Mud Pie has an in-house watercolor artist that created a lot of our Spring 2017 prints?! Well if you didn’t, let us introduce you!

CA

Meet Caitlin Alderfer, Product Development Artist at Mud Pie. Caitlin started working at Mud Pie almost exactly a year ago (at the end of the month!)  She has been painting/drawing/creating things ever since she can remember; her mom is very creative (she paints too in her spare time!) so there was always art supplies and classes during the summer as a kid.

Painting seriously didn’t begin until college though, where she was a Studio Art major, but focused in oil painting and collage. Watercolor painting only began for her about 3 years ago, when she was in grad school for Graphic Design but missed painting. At the time Caitlin had a roommate and limited space, and oil painting involves strong chemicals and is much messier than watercolors, so she decided to give it a try, and has grown from there.

 “I have also always been fascinated with watercolor because it is so challenging and unpredictable; the more you learn about it the more you understand how the paint will react when you add water, but it is always a little bit of a surprise,” says Caitlin. “It is also really a challenge because you really only get one shot; if you make a mistake you can’t erase it (for the most part) so you have to be very intentional.”Baby and Kids

Watercoloring takes a lot of patience. It depends on the print and how detailed/complex it is. As a general rule, any prints Caitlin designs that begin as a watercolored painting take longer than ones created digitally, mostly because there are so many more steps involved. She begins with sketching the patterns, then after painting she has to load it into the computer to clean up and digitize! It’s a process, but a fun one!

Caitlin loves a lot of the patterns she created for Spring 2017, but her favorite has to be the Midnight Floral pattern for Fashion. Although landing on the final version of this pattern took several weeks, she painted the original watercolor elements on her 2nd or 3rd day working at Mud Pie! “I remember asking if it was ok if I brought in paints to work with and everyone thought I was a little crazy, so it was fun to get to show what I could do so early on,” she says. “I think about my journey at Mud Pie every time I see this print, which makes it special for me. Plus, I’ve always loved florals!”

As crazy as it seems, Caitlin is already starting work on our Spring 2018 prints! And even when watercolor isn’t the right medium for a pattern, you can find Caitlin sketching and drawing by hand before she gets to the computer!

“It has been so much fun getting to see my work, which I’ve previously only seen on paper and canvas, live on products,” Caitlin says!

Spring Trends: Fashion

March 2, 2017

 

Things are going to get HOTT this Spring and we are not just talking about the weather. There are so many adorable looks trending in Fashion this Spring and of course Mud Pie has the looks you NEED in your closet this season!

Give winter the cold shoulder hun, because it’s all about showing off this Spring. Flaunt the freedom and show those shoulders!

 

Cold Shoulder

This season is big on versatile outfits that you can wear everyday! From the office, to the store, in carpool line or even for a picnic in the park. Pair our Hannah Shirtdresses with scarfs, light vests, hats, or jewelry and you can change it up for any occasion. Did we mention how comfy this dress is to?!

 

Everyday Wear

One of our least favorite things about summer? Trying to dress cute, but sweating your make up off by the end of the day. Yeah, no thanks. This year, we are so into the light layering. Over a dress, shirt or tank, the Mckinley Vest is must have addition to your wardrobe. (ps. it has a pull string in the back to give it an even more sexy shape!)

Light Layer

Versatility, versatility, versatility. Wait, we’ve said that before… getting the trend? We LOVE our cover-ups, because they do more than just, well, cover us up on our way to the water. Of course you can throw it on over your favorite bikini or one piece, but there is no need to go in and change before heading to get drinks. Pack wedges and white pants and you can go straight from the beach to the bar! That means no wasted time next vacation and more sun for you!

Beach to Bar

Not going to lie, we are about to brag. Because this is just pretty cool (no actually, REALLY cool!) Mud Pie has an in-house designer that does watercolor patterns! So that means our items are SUPER unique to our brand. You will not find it anywhere else and we can promise you that! So go ahead and skip off in your one-of-a-kind Sawyer Swing dress, because you look dang good in it, girl!

Flowers blooming, the sun shinning and more time spent outside. We CANNOT wait. But first you need to make sure your wardrobe matches the weather! Shop all of our new Spring 2017 Fashion at mud-pie.com.
