Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted! I haven’t completely given up on this blog so please do check in every once in a while, but things have definitely slowed down over here. I think having a third little bundle might have something to do with it… ;)
Isla is 7 months now and she completes our family in a way I can’t describe! But just so you know, having three kids is a LOT more work than 2 (in our family anyway). Little Isla won’t be taking any back seat to her brothers and she’s made that clear! She loves a lot of attention and keeping busy.. which means, mommy can’t do as much work as she expected! I plan to take an indefinite amount of time off. This means (sadly), that my Etsy store may not be open for a while and that I won’t be posting too much new artwork on here. Having said that, if there is a print that you’ve been dying to have and you’ve been patiently waiting for my store to open, please contact me directly and I can figure something out for you. I am not giving up on my art, just keeping my priorities straight and focusing on my family while my littles are just so young.
Having said all this, I couldn’t let my Christmas card slide! I adore this time of year and love making a personal Christmas card. This year was so exception and I’ve posted my design below. I wish you all a wonderful holiday season with family and friends! Cherish each moment as it’s the simplest things in life that bring so much joy :) Merry Christmas!

I adored playing with dolls when I was a little girl, so as soon as I found out I was having my own little girl, I knew I wanted to get her a very special one. I wanted to get her one that she would treasure and keep for years. So after discovering Little Noel, I knew I needed to have a sweet Waldorf doll made for her. I made a special request for the doll to be based off the little girl in my butterfly illustration. This illustration hangs prominently in Isla’s room and much of her decor is based off of it. The doll is gorgeous and completes the room beautifully! I am so happy to have this precious little doll for Isla! Thanks so much Debbie :)

Yes I’m still here and things are going well! I’ve been very busy with our latest addition (this sweet little pumpkin above) and juggling two active boys on summer holidays. I haven’t had the chance to post anything in a while… Isla is already 3 months old and is just about the sweetest thing I could ask for :) I’m keeping the boys busy with lots of visits to splash parks, farms, friends, beaches, camps, and so much more. I’m starting to slowly take on a few illustration projects and am thinking of reopening my Etsy store soon. Thanks for bearing with me!
I wanted to post a photo of some work I completed last year. I designed a line of baby nursery decor for Roman. The collection includes a snowglobe, musical, 2 frames, a cross, and nightlight. This was my first experience designing this kind of thing and I really enjoyed the process. I was able to view the items from concept all through the completion. It’s amazing to see the final product! That’s all for now! Happy summer :)

My heart couldn’t be more full right now! On April 23, 2014, we welcomed our beautiful baby daughter, Isla Anne Miller. She weighed 9lbs 8oz and is perfect in every way :) We had a wonderful home birth and are still glowing from our experience. She was born at 7am right before our two little boys woke up. They were able to walk into our room in the morning to meet their baby sister all wrapped up with their mommy in bed. It was pure heaven. I wish I could bottle these moments forever… trying to soak it all in!
I’ll be taking a break from work for the next little while so I can focus on my new little addition :)
Here are a few photos taken by my good friend Melissa Kew…

I’m just popping on here for a quick minute to wish everyone a happy Easter weekend :) We’ve had a wonderful Easter so far, filled with egg decorating, Easter egg hunts, and fun with friends and family! We have one more day off tomorrow to enjoy some family time. And we’re still waiting on the arrival of our little lady who was due yesterday.. any day now :) Happy Easter!
