Did I really promise you to reopen my Etsy store last July? Then September? Then I think I stopped promising… Well, the time has finally come, my friends :) A little over a year after having my third sweet bundle of joy, I am ready to jump back into it! I am excited to see what new projects are on the horizon. There is one (possibly two) children’s books in the works, a new baby calendar to share with you, and my Etsy store back up and running – all set up with fresh paper and ink; and ready to personally sign and package each sweet print just for you! And to celebrate this grand occasion, I am offering 20% off everything in my store until Saturday. Simply checkout with the coupon code: OPEN2015 to get your special discount! It feels good to be back :)

I was beyond excited to unwrap these sweet figurines that I received in the mail the other day. Ween from Sugar.com.my creates some pretty amazing things with sugar and has been using my art as inspiration for her cake decorations. She offered to bring my characters to life for me and I absolutely adore them! Now don’t I need a whole village of these cute characters? ;)

Happy birthday to my sweet, funny, feisty, cuddly, and sensitive little girl. You have added so much to our family! I can’t even begin to describe the sheer joy you bring me. I don’t think you’ll ever truly understand this until you have a daughter of your own. After growing up with three brothers and having two sons of my own, you could not of been more welcomed and adored! Our family is perfectly complete with you. We all love you so much.
I love how much you admire your brothers and follow them around the house, wishing you could do everything they do. You love books, frozen blueberries, swinging, picking out your shoes, and seeing Isaac for the first time after a long day at school. You love stuffies and always end up in Isaac’s room, raiding his ever growing collection. You have the best hair, the cutest smile, and the brightest eyes…we will always be your biggest fans! Your brothers love you so much and they will always be there to protect and stand up for you.
I have always wanted a daughter and because of you, my heart is complete. Your daddy and I love you so much little miss sunshine.. and hope that you enjoy your special day tomorrow!

I have some pretty exciting news to share with you! I’ve certainly been MIA over the past few months, but that’s due in part to this sweet little peanut (who I can’t believe is turning 1 in just over a month)! I’m sharing the results of an amazing collaboration that I was honoured to be a part of. Over the past year, I’ve been working closely with Deepy Sleepy to develop this beautiful, high quality, 100% organic line of baby bedding. I’ve been working on these designs for a while so it’s very rewarding to finally see the final products. There are three main designs with a few interchangeable options for sheeting. The product is made to order and customizable. This would be such a precious investment and keepsake for any lucky baby!

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!
