Make It or Buy It: Valentine's Day

SweetPeachValentinesDay from Sweet Peach blog on Vimeo.

I've worked in tv for quite some time but never thought of making a video for Sweet Peach until recently (the blog has always been an outlet away from that world). But, making this video reminded me of all that I love about producing. It's been a blast playing with this idea from concept to post and to collaborate with good friends. This is the first of hopefully more to come. I'm calling it Make It or Buy It to showcase some of the things you can make or buy for Valentine's Day. Click above to play...

Most of our Make It features don't call for a tutorial. Check out Alabama Biscuits to make homemade treats for that someone special. And here's the recipe for our Valentine cocktail that was a smidge strong and super tasty...adjust as you like.

So many people to thank for this video. First off, I thank Mr. James for his tireless efforts in shooting and editing this video; Sarah Neuberger of The Small Object for her incredible, adorable illustrations; Beth Lord for her set styling, biscuit making and master crafter ways; Bob Conquest, Andy Cleary, Sarah Pierre, Tiffany Santiago and Bradley Odom for giving up a Saturday afternoon to be willing guinea pigs in my latest concoction; Andrew Gawdun for his musical guidance... and all the southern designers and artists that inspire me each day. 


It was such a thrill to have Sarah of The Small Object create custom illustrations for the video. I am such a fan of her work and was so overjoyed to have her say yes, without hesitation. How lucky am I? Click here to see her incredible shop and blog if you haven't already. And Happy Valentine's Day prepping everyone...
