This past weekend, Laurel and I, hopped down to Milton, DE. An adorable little beach town by Rehoboth Beach, to go to an outdoor antique flea market. Farmers Markets and Flea Markets are some of the countless reasons I absolutely LOVE autumn. Well, besides, a vintage globe or two, some christmas napkins, and a filagree thimble… I found this great turquoise bench! Now, I’m a grey and taupe person all day long, the more neutral – the better. BUT! This bench was the perfect size for a wall in our mudroom and it was $3. Who can say no to a $3 bench… ok, probably quite a few people, but I could not.
So now I have a super bright mudroom and I sort of, kind of, love it. The bench will probably end up being stripped down to it’s original wood, but for now, it’s bright and happy and perfect for the open window fall days we’ve been having!
Annie, yes our Annie, has her own illustration blog! And you should go visit it! Technically, both of us have our own portfolio style blog aside from this one which you can get to by clicking on our pictures on the right hand side… but, of course, you’ve seen most of mine already.
But seriously, you should go check her out. She’s a lovely artist and much more into comic books and sci-fi than I am. So if you like adorable illustrations, Superman, anime, or even Yeti’s… click here to see some awesome stuff.
So today I did a logo for an adorable Etsy shop, The Linen Cupcake. Specializing in diaper cakes, for baby showers, and many other talents, I thought I would post my mornings work as well as promote a fellow Etsy shop.
Mermaids and Butterflies are my two favorite things… you can’t get much girlier than that! So when someone comes to me saying they would like mermaid invites for a baby birthday, it’s pretty much the best thing ever. This little lady didn’t make the cut, but she looked so happy I figured I’d post her.
If you need a mermaid for something, you are more than welcome to save or print this lady and add whatever info you would like, just please keep my logo on there. Oh, and please make sure it’s for private use, it would be awkward to find someone selling this print so better not to.
Hope you Sunday is as fall wonderful as ours is up here!
Yup, after channeling Harry Potter, hot spearmint tea, boots, chunky scarves, and cinnamon apple candles I have managed to get a few fall items up on the Etsy site. So if you’re in need an owl for your little one or coming soon, a tree pillow, click the link below because we got ‘um!
This week Flyboy has been out of the country and, although we’re still enjoying the 80 degree weather, September has hit and with that Fall Fever. My summer loving, former surfer bum, husband always tries to hang on to summer as long as possible, but with him out the the country (again) this week I decided to get the fall aesthetics going and started with the wreaths. Now, a few months ago, I made some summer wreaths and posted the DIY on here. Well, I was going to start from scratch and make entirely new autumn wreaths, but with a 6 month baby girl, an 11 week old St. Bernard puppy, and a 3 year old Sacha malamutt I opted to add onto the existing wreaths and save myself some time. The first one is the front door wreath and the second, with the banner, is the side door/mudroom wreath.
So today is catch up on illustration projects day and I cannot, for the life of me, keep track of Nora’s pacifiers. Which without pacifiers, naptime is usually no go. So what ends up on my illustration pad, a 10 min quick sketch of a pacifier stealing elf. Proof that it’s impossible to switch out of mommy mode.
Now to attempt to get back to real projects for the rest of naptime.
Fall is almost here so summer is on sale! If you haven’t felt like your life is complete without a mermaid doll or some colorful burp rags – here’s your chance! But they are only around until Sept. 10th.
