You got to love them-

Happy accidents. Look what happened when I pulled over a bunch of my layers to a blank canvases. Not exactly where I planned on taking this piece to but a pretty moment that gave me some inspiration to finish this up. I love seeing what happens when I'm open to a more spontaneous ending.

When the afternoon arrived...

My morning grouchiness had worn off. Thank you coffee!

We've all had them...

One of those weeks. I'm counting the days until FRIDAY.
Hope your week is going well!

Jill McDonald Baby Brand

Hooray! It feels like Christmas has arrived early for me. My new brand Jill McDonald Baby is now in Babies-R- Us. After having my son over three years ago I became passionate about sharing my artistic vision with other families. My goal is to make really great, affordable products that kids & parents will remember fondly. I'm really proud of what we've come up with. You'll find lamps, musical mobiles, wall art & much more. From the packaging to the final product assortment it's been an exciting journey. I've developed themes for each collection with a bit of story around each idea. Lullaby Breeze is my girls crib collection and Adorable Dino for boys. Stay tuned we're hoping to add more crib bedding, baby & toddler clothing, bath products & juvenile bedding in the near future. If you know any expecting mom's or dad's spread the word!

little BIG world

I think I have the same mentality about the world as I did when I was a 5 year old little girl. I like to think of it as one big happy place.

Words to live by.

I recently stumbled across this quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce. I can't get it out of my head. So simple & true. Last night I spent a little time cutting out the words to frame & hang on my stairway. I plan to take notice of it each time I pass by. * I posted this yesterday without the word "lose" (thanks for catching that Barry) Guess I'm not as productive as I thought after 10pm :)

Hello March!

I've been waiting for you to appear on my calendar. Now I can start counting the days until spring. I put this little book together in honor of the longer days of light, new surprises just starting to pop out of the ground, early morning bird chirps & the occasional ladybug sighting. Is spring starting to arrive where you live?
