[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]T[/dropcap] his past weekend I attended a wonderful event at Madewell in New York City. It was a pop up shop for the talented blogger and artist Jen Ramos of the well known blog Made By Girl. This co-sponsored event was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon with fruity cocktails, tasty hourderves, plenty of fellow bloggers to chat with and of course lots of beautiful art. Getting there was a bit of a challenge when it seemed every subway line in the New York was under construction, but luckily the weather was delightful and the Madewell store on the upper east side could not have been more accommodating. I was greeted with a refreshing and oh so needed cocktail and then made way to Jen’s pop up shop.

[blockquote]I spend most of my days in my home office—so naturally, I have to be surrounded by artwork—which is always inspiring…Jen Ramos
[/blockquote] [dropcap custom_class=”normal”][/dropcap] I happily ran in to a number of fellow bloggers I am friendly with Josephina of Josephina’s Collection and Adri of Adri’s World. We sipped our cocktails, chatted about how to handle running in to celebrities, and of course we shopped.I mean how could we resist such striking prints and paintings? Jen’s work is such a breath of fresh air. I love her palette and the quirky yet sophisticated approach she takes in her creations. From her trademark swooshes and swipes to her newer work like the teal and gold American flag, there was plenty to choose from. I struggled a bit on which painting to purchase and I finally decide on the pink and gold pineapple painting.The colors are so vibrant, and I love the gold texture of the metallic paint woven throughout. I can not wait to hang it up. It is so exciting to own a true original piece of artwork. My photographs do not do her work justice, it is so much more enthralling when you see it face to face. I am excited for her new collection and to see what she does next. There are also a number of pieces I still have my eye on. One day I will have my dream home office, and it that dream home office will be my first original piece of artwork—a Jen Ramos MGB original or two or three or four…and off I go with my purchase!

    This sounds like a very enjoyable and fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon starting off with cocktails. You made the right choice too. I was admiring the pineapple paintings and I then scrolled down to read that you had purchased one!

    You made a very impressive review on her. I agree.

    Ooh her work is exceptional. I’ll dream along with you. I can’t wait to have my own space and fill it with inspirational, pretty things. Artwork plays a major role in that.
