I recently came across this feed on Tumblr called Tayas Tales and it is exactly the dose of color and happiness I need to start my next paintings.  Love the vibe!

Around my house...

It has been about 6 month since we have moved in our new place and I'm finally pulling things together!!  The chair that Tilly perches on is from the Threshold line by Target and the pair could not be a better fit for my space.  They are so nice and I love the lok!!  Finding the perfect curtains from Anthropologie was huge too!!  I love the white and how bright it makes it feel, but still getting the urge to paint the walls a light light gray....how cute is my model?... Tilly!!







My old studio...tear.

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

I'm having withdrawals from my old studio.  It was huge and I somehow filled it up and made huge messes.  Now that we are back in Chicago, I had to take a hit on space. Don't get me wrong, I love our new place and I'm so lucky to have a in home studio, but it's half the size.  It's hard to change your ways of working! I try to look at it as my chance to concentrate on the more important parts of my artwork and stay organized.  We will see....artists aren't really known to be well organized!

Here are a few pictures of my old studio space and soon I will reveal the new space!!  

Please don't forget to follow me on Instagram for new work and giveaways!!  I'm really trying to grow in this social world and any help I would greatly appreciate it!

I love love love doing photo shoots of artwork.  It took me such a long time to figure out new ways to display my prints and illustrations but now, I have so many "props"  I can pull stuff from around the house.  It kinda gives me an excuse to go accessory shopping.  Here are some of my faves and are all available in the shop!!  Can't wait to post new artwork and do some fun new shoots!!  

Oh!! Be a doll, help a mama out...follow me on Instagram....

and PIN these pics too!

When Chairish reached out to me about doing a design board, I was super curious about the website.  I have to admit, I'm kinda obsessed with it now.  There are some really, really amazing designer, one of a kind pieces.  They are gentle used, but usually in show room condition.  To be honest, you can't find most of these things in stores, so if you're looking for something special for that spot in your house that you have no idea what to do with, jump over to Chairish!!  I picked a few things that I would love to have in my house and paired them with one of my prints!

Whoa, where have I been...

I am really trying to get back into regularly posting, but as you can see from the last time it has been a long time!  I have a cute baby to thank for that.  But, my blog has always just been a fun thing to update everyone on what I'm working on.  So, that is just what I want to do today!  Here are some great collaborations I've been doing with other bloggers.  I love how they are styling my artwork and trays into their lives.  Amazing blogs, you must jump over and check out...here are some of their pretty pictures!
