My Mental Health Rituals

May 26, 2021

2020 was quite a year, I think we can all agree. It was challenging for everyone and forced us to think of new ways of working, socializing and living our lives.

By the beginning of April 2020, my Valencia retail shop was boarded up, I had to furlough my SF team and part of my NY Team. [...]

Designed with Mom and Gram in Mind

April 29, 2021

Mother's Day is almost here, and I'm all about celebrating the irreplaceable mom-figures in our lives. The word "Mom" can mean a lot of things and elicit all kinds of memories and emotions. They could be a grandmother, an aunt, a sister, a cousin, a furmom, a dad who fills the role of mom, or a friend who doles out the best maternal advice. I honor each and every one of those selfless people [...]

For those of you that are new to CMD, I wanted to share a little more about myself and the CMD brand. We have a full-fledged production studio in Upstate New York. Our small team of six women are amazing, enthusiastic and growing. My greatest joy is the transformation of an idea in my head into a piece that becomes part of someone's everyday look.
