NEW FEATHER PILLOW

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!

CHRISTMAS MAIL

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.

IT BEGINS WITH A SKETCH

I’ve been working on some new silkscreen designs for the shop and felt that I couldn’t go wrong with a birds feather. I added some patterns within the feather making it feel more tribal. I plan on doing a lot with this signal design and I’m so excited to share more photos once I’m finished!

I’m pretty happy with the end result!

LULLABY YELLOW

This summer we were inspired to paint our front door a bright and fantastic colour. We chose Lullaby Yellow from the Beauti-tone collection! We’ve also noticed the trend in exterior design where house numbers are placed right on the door instead of on the walls of the house. We went with it and are pretty happy with the look.

GREEN THUMB

We made a veggie garden!

We’ll I supervised as I’m now 39 weeks pregnant, but the boys sure did an amazing job. We started out by digging out an even square about 5 by 5 and purchasing a whole lot of soil for only 30 beans. We were given free seeds (tomatoes, cucumbers, snow peas, green beans, sweet carrots and corn) from a family friend and now we will just have to sit, water and wait to see how they grow.

MIRROR MIRROR

The nursery needed a nice big mirror to make the room look larger and to reflect more light in as well. I went to HomeSense and found a black mirror with playful curvy lines that was on sale for $30 because there were a few chips in the wood. I purchased it and use my jigsaw to even out the chips. To make it fit the style of nursery we want for our little one, I painted the black mirror with a few coats of VOC free white paint.

Now we have a brand new mirror!
