It's been awhile since I've had an entire day in the studio. So much to do and I am so excited to be doing it in my favorite place. Happy Friday everyone!!
I do a great deal of custom work and I love every bit of it. To be a part of a special moment, a special day and to have the honour of creating a unique piece for just them is simply awesome! Hope your day has a little awesome in it too!!
If you have a custom request no matter how small or crazy...please let me know, I would love to make it a reality!
Things kept going wrong yesterday and although today is filled with clouds and rain...it feels like a beautiful day! Bad days make me appreciate the good and both remind me how blessed I truly am. Hope your weekend is off to a good start!
It is almost the end of February and many are still committed to their new year resolutions and some are starting new healthy journey's. I am in both categories. My goal for 2016 is to move, in all aspects of my life including my health and well being.
On February 15th I started a round of Whole30 (not my first), you can google it for the details but in short it is a 30 day commitment to eat good clean natural food. I have met some really great people in their forums who are doing this at the same time as me. All these people have dedicated themselves to something that will improve their health. All these people are determined to break bad food habits and do the work to eat cleanly. All these people inspired this print.For some of us, health and fitness is a real challenge, food is a real challenge but we are getting there, one meal at a time.
Print is available in the shop now and we can also customize the colour just for you.
If you have or are doing a round of Whole30, I would love to hear about your experience to keep my inspiration going!
Our original birth prints come in an 8x8 square size which have a really great and unique look to them. However, we have been receiving more and more requests to have them available in 8x10 because depending on where you are in the world, square frames aren't as common. You asked, we listened and now our birth prints have a new size!
Since we were introducing a new size, we took the opportunity to introduce a new look for them as well.
Our new birth prints now have a fresh letterpress style to them, new tones, background colour and as always are completely customizable from the words right down to the colours.
What makes these prints so personal is that they are based on the birth place of the new baby.
The original square prints have always been one of our favourite prints, in fact it was one of the first prints we created. We are very excited to bring a fresh new look to them and a new size that can be easily framed with almost any off the shelf frame that is matted for an 8x10 picture.
We are very proud to introduce these, they are available in the shop now and if you have any questions about them, please let us know...we love making them and would love to make one for you!
Absolutely love receiving pictures of my prints in the real world. This lovely couple received one of my anniversary prints for their 25th anniversary and I think the picture says it all :)
Sometimes you need a reminder to care for your body, mind and soul. Sometimes you need a good Zombie book. Whatever your doing, enjoy your Sunday.
Merry Christmas to you and all your loved ones.
May it be filled with love, happiness and peace.

We had such an amazing mini summer vacation full of moments like this!
I am feeling blessed, revitalized and ready to tackle the last few weeks of summer break with these little munchkins.
Fathers are awesome!
As a wife and mother my heart fills up with joy when I see my children snuggled up with their daddy, having quiet conversations or listening to their squeals of delight as they wrestle and get tickled by him. He is truly an amazing father and I hope the shower of handmade gifts and little store bought items the kids picked themselves, (plus all the extra hugs and kisses) will make him feel super special.
As an adult and a daughter, my heart fills with such appreciation for my own father. Even though I am a grown woman, with a family of my own, he is always there to support me, to help me when I need an extra hand during the day when the hubs isn't around and even to bring my ideas for craft show display stands to life. Always a father, always my dad, always there.
As I said, Fathers are awesome. The two in my life certainly are and they inspire me and inspired this Father's Day print.
To all the fathers out there, enjoy the day, relax, sleep, golf, drink beer or do nothing...you deserve it!
Happy Fathers Day!!!
This is the place where I share my creative projects, endeavors and the stories that inspire my prints.
