I didn’t have time to upload and edit Tayla’s 6 month photo session until this week! The holidays were just tooo busy. I spent all of yesterday sorting through 200 photos and editing a select few which I think are just so adorable. You’ll notice shes outfitted in a white tutu with a cream coloured bow in the back- handmade by me too, and so easy to make.

Welcome 2014!

Just finished and shipped out the first Wedding Table Runner of the year. My family and I are so excited or the year ahead. We have a new nephew entering the world tomorrow and our little Tayla just keeps on surprising us each day! Check out http://www.susannamaria.etsy.com for more items in the shop.

Welcome 2014


Last month I created a feather silk screen and said I would show the items I create with that single design. Well here is the latest is a teal/minty green pillow with white feathers in fabric ink. It looks amazing on my couch and I’m now also selling it in the shop, click here: FEATHER PILLOW. I would love to hear what you think of it!

Our Christmas Cards arrived in the mail today and I’m so so so in-love with how they turned out. I spent most of the day addressing and stamping them to all our family and friends. Doesn’t Tayla look ‘oh so cute’ with Santa! Feels good to be spreading holiday joy this early in December.



Tayla got to meet Santa for the first time. She was absolutely adorable, sweet and not at all scared to sit on his lap. We purchased the usual photo package of 2 5×7 & 2 4×6 printed photos but also paid an extra $5 to have the photos sent to us by email (AMAZING). Here is what I created with good old Photoshop. I felt the original photo wasn’t magical/Christmas-y enough but I think I fixed that!


Below: The original cute photo of Tayla and Santa & the background winter wonderland photo I took from google images.



After I created the new image I designed our Christmas Cards with vistaprint.ca. Can’t wait for them to arrive in the mail so that I can share the holiday spirit with our friends and family.



I’ve been busy screen printing my drawing of a dreamcatcher. I’ve created notebooks and wall hangings and soon I will be posting decorative pillows in the shop. Check ’em out at my Etsy.com shop and let me know what you think- I would love to hear from you!
