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 ;)

New Embroidery Patterns

Published in: Embroidery, Personal with 0 comments

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: netsitesinc@yahoo.com

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 :)

Back in Canada and Celebrating with a Sale!

Published in: Etsy, Illustration, Personal with 2 comments


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!

Imitation: Not Always Best Form of Flattery

Published in: Personal with 80 comments

It’s come to my attention that my brand, my style (that I’ve worked so hard to make uniquely mine and be recognized for) has been copied by another illustrator. She’s been participating in Illustration Friday, blogging and has a FB biz page. I’ve had one email conversation with her expressing my concerns and she replied apologetically and said I’ve been an inspiration to her work (well, obviously!), but emails since has fallen on deaf ears. I’m concerned this could be damaging to my brand. Any advice?
