Yes, we’ll be adding a girl to our little family in the spring! The boys are very excited! And most of you that follow my work know how much I LOVE to illustrate pretty little things for girls. Now I’ll be able to hang some girly artwork in my home! I am beyond happy to welcome this little lady :)
The collection below is currently waiting to be hung in her nursery. And I’m sure there will be lots of new girl artwork to come…

And there were three little bears off for a day of fun! These little bears are inspired by my two (soon to be three) little bears I have at home :) Yes, that’s right, there will be one more this spring! We are expecting our third baby in April and I couldn’t be more excited! This is my first illustration inspired by all three and will be hung in our soon-to-be-finished new basement playroom. I’ve also added it to my Etsy store for any of you out there with three little bears ;)

I have some exciting news! You can now purchase many of my designs as an embroidery pattern at Lena Lawson Needle Arts! I can picture these being very cute on a quilt design or even on a little girls shirt. Let me know what you think!
UPDATE (Sept 12, 2013): Lena Lawson Needle Arts website is having a few technical difficulties. If you were trying to order some of the patterns, please contact Lena directly if you are having issues: firstname.lastname@example.org
On a personal note, both my little guys have officially begun school. This is a bit exciting because today was my first official weekday morning ‘sans kids’ in a good 5 years! Albeit only being a couple hours, I had time to work during daytime hours – hurray! Both boys are very happy to go to school so there are no tears here. It makes me a teensy bit sad to see the youngest so independent, but overall very proud of both of them :)

We’re back in Canada and settling in very well! We are happy to be home and able to see all the family and friends we missed so much :) Our boxes are mostly unpacked and things are starting to feel normal again. Isaac has started school (which he loves) and my hubby is back at work. We miss a lot of things about Australia but we certainly feel this is home.
My print shop is back up and running and my Etsy store is now officially open. And what better way to celebrate our return and re-opened shop, then to have a sale! I’m offering 50% off everything in my Etsy store for the next week (Coupon Code: CAN2013 – Expires June 6, 2013). Be sure to check out all my new work!
I illustrated the piece above a couple years ago for a book contract. I don’t think I ever posted it online so I thought I would share it with you :) It hardly relates to the content of this post, but I just couldn’t do a blog post without an image!
