National Coffee Day

Did you know today is National Coffee day?  Yes, it's a real thing & I think it's worth celebrating.  I am forever grateful for my morning coffee! I do like a cup of tea but must admit that my heart belongs to coffee!

*Inspired by the fall apples... like how round shape feels in the palm of my hand.

Last weekend we took our annual trip to our favorite orchard- Weston Red Barn.  We got a beautiful, bright day & the trip seemed particularly picturesque this time!  Love that we've made this a family tradition!

Birth Prints

I've teamed up with Happy Spaces to create some really charming birth announcements.
I featured the London personalized print last week.  Today I wanted to show your the other birth announcement in my line with Happy Spaces!

Blossom is pretty option for a baby girl.

Dinosaur is a fun, playful option for baby boy.

Hello Baby is a bit quirky & bright perfect for baby girl.

Each birth print is personalized with baby's special details. (simple instructions on their site that walk you through the personalization steps)   All prints are made in Britain offered in
12 x 16" shipped unframed in a sturdy card board tube.
* A charming touch to any nursery!

Turned out so nicely I can't wait to see it in person!

Celebrate your new arrival with a personalized touch of British flair!

Feels Like Fall

First day I felt like fall here!  A little painting from my sketchbook.

Tomorrow a Butterfly!

I used to religiously keep a sketchbook.  As my life got busier (a child, more projects & commitments) I stopped.  I'm making time to start back up with my sketchbook.  My favorite is the one I've used since art school, a multi -drawing book for water color & multi media/ you can do anything in it!

My hope is that by the time Surtex rolls around this year I'll have a sketchbook (or several) that people can browse through.  I think it's one thing to sit down & make a piece of art you intend to sell or license & something often very different to sit down & play in your sketchbook.  No boundaries, no restrictions just see what comes out.  So on that note this is what I did last night- felt good!

Introducing SoSo...

the newest member of our family- she's a 3 month old French Bulldog.  We got her last Saturday & I have to say I've found myself smiling more over the last couple days.  Yes, she's a hand full but she is also a lot of fun!  Her proportions crack me up & she loves paper. (hiding all my sketchbooks!)
Luca is thrilled to finally have a dog.  Her name is Sophie but he calls her SoSo because he says she's "So SO cute!"
