Summer has begun & Luca is officially out of preschool.  Having him at the studio all day is a entertaining whirlwind with burst of work between sessions of play. I forget during the "school" year when he's gone during the day how much energy he has.  Not to fear, summer camp will begin in a few weeks. In the mean time the activities flow!

Today we:
1. made cupcakes for breakfast (why not right)
2. drew pictures (that's his spy owl)
3. played pirate complete with sword fights....
4. added curtains to the doll house
5. built with Legos (his favorite)

He's asleep & we headed back to work.
Tomorrow... round 2!

Happy Memorial Day!

Hello... Are you as ready for the weekend as I am?  Finding it hard to believe it is Memorial day weekend.  This is a Oopsy Daisy wall art piece I made loosely based off the little town we live in. During the summer season there are a variety of parades.  Looking forward to kicking back with a glass of lemonade, feeling the sun on my skin & enjoying a change of pace.  Hope you enjoy the long weekend!

The Tooth Fairy!

Yesterday my sweet Luca lost his first tooth!  So much fun to see the look of excitement on his face this morning seeing what the tooth fairy left him.  Those teeth aren't cheap!

New Website!

We are so happy to announce that our new Website is up and running. We have been trying to update it for years but time was always short. But we decided that it was now or never and now is done. We did it!

Our main goal was to have "Everything Jill McDonald" in one place. We have many products in the market but they were in several websites. Now you can browse them all at once and then use the links to go get them.

Our new Website is also so much easier to update. We are already have several new products that we will add in the near future so keep coming back.

Happy Browsing!

Ladies & Gentlemen...

boys & girls... Step right up & take a look at my NEW Amazing Animals crib bedding collection available at Babies r Us!  (we are super excited about this :)
I've always loved the circus, it congers up all sorts of happy thoughts for me.  Color, pattern, animals, a sense of wonder & amazement.

If you are someone you know is registering for Amazing Animals I thought it would be fun to make the shower theme circus as well.  I've put together an inspiration board with some ideas!

Drum roll please...........
