Every Shade of Happy!

We are getting ready to move to a new house next week- Hooray!
(Our labor of love over the past 2 years.  More on that soon...)

I've found all sorts of art I made years ago tucked away in drawers.
Thought this was a great piece for Friday!

Do you have a favorite color?  
 I can never land on just one & it seems to change over time.
Often with how I'm feeling.

Adorable You

This is a simple & sweet book idea.  Perfect to share with a toddler.
I'm always inspired by white ceramics with a tiny painted spot illustration
in the middle.  Thought that would be a fun design concept to play with here.  
A sea of white, a bright small illustrated surprise along with the corresponding letter near by.

Floral Brights

Today I've posted some more flowers.  (got flowers on my mind lately- guess I'm anxious for spring)
This is a quick piece I painted in my sketchbook using Luca's Crayola watercolor paint.  
Wasn't sure how his paint would work but I ended up really liking the color & texture it left.
Go Crayola!

promise of spring!

Venture All around Town with my new wall art piece available at Happy Spaces.
Simple seek & find icons are nestled into a busy, bustling scene. Surrounded by things that go
zoom, vroom, splash & boom!  A colorful addition to your little man's space.

Girly A- Z

I am happy to announce that I have several pieces of wall art available through Happy Spaces - a lovely company in the U.K. that specializes in beautiful art for children.
Over the next week I share some of these new canvases.

Kicking it off today with my Alphabet for Girls.  I love a quirky detail or OK... a lot of quirky details & this bright pastel piece is packed with them!

Pleased as punch!

Luca & I are thrilled that his dad will be arriving back home tonight!
It's been a   l  o  n  g   week.  When Antonio leaves for a chunk of time I'm so grateful for his
return & humbled to think about how single parents do it on their own!
I found a couple things that put me in my "happy place" this week.

Have you heard about the dog who can ride the bus by herself to the dog park. 
See it here.
Animals are just amazing!  She even has her own bus pass- too much!

I'm not a huge Maroon 5 fan but I can watch this video  - Sugar a hundred times! (I think I may have)
Gives me such a rush of happy!

Black and White...

OK, with a few shades of blue.  
Because really, most things are not so black & white.
