shapes and colours




How adorable are these illustrations by Blanca Gomez? I spotted the city illustrations on Black Eiffel this morning, and had to search out more! We are in luck, there's an etsy shop full of fun illustrations & cards. The tones, colours and shapes that are used are just my style, and I love the crafty feel. What I wouldn't give to score that balloon illustration for my boy for our anniversary later this year. Adorable!

monday cheer






It's monday again. Usually I am pretty sad that it's monday, but lately I have been determined to keep it cheery, and to make it a productive but satisfying week! I went to the gym yesterday and am so sore, but it's sunny and gorgeous outside and that makes me smile. I thought today I would bring in some just pretty bright photos by Ashlee Raubach. I think it inspired me to get some flowers this week and maybe some fresh fruit and veggies! {and wouldn't you just die for that sun-filled kitchen?} Have a great day!

dream filled days






It is so close to the weekend, I can almost smell it! It's supposed to get a little cooler, which I am not happy about but am anxious to have a relaxing weekend. I plan on a brunch & spa date with my mom, along with some happy hours spent reading. I also have limited internet access, which I am surprisingly happy with for once! It's amazing how we get so dependent on that in our daily lives. {but if there's one thing I love about it, it's to read all of your wonderful blogs out there!} I need a little rest from the email & facebook world to get my brain rolling and creative in another way. Do you ever get that? What inspires you?

refresh it


I just wanted to say a little thanks for all your patience in the past little while, my lovely readers. I know lately I have been complaining too much about being busy and all the craziness, but the fact is, I said yes to all these projects and things got too carried away and then I couldn't control it. With this new job, and a big freelance project dying down, I finally feel like I have a chance to refresh and slow down a little bit more. I long for the weekends where I could get up just a little bit later, head to my favourite coffee shop and read for an hour without feeling guilty! Or even blog more than once in a day about cool new things. I hope this is soon to come! Here's to a fresh new week everyone!

new week

new job

I know I'm late, it's tuesday already, but yesterday I was a bit distracted. I started a new job! It's full time again, and I finally feel like perhaps life can slow down just slightly. I have to admit, I was nervous, and hate those first few days of learning new systems. I wish I just automatically would know it all and could dive right in, but that's not how it works and must endure the learning curve all over again. However, I am looking forward to more creative processes, using new fonts and photographers and making new friends!

hello, sugar pie





Happy Easter weekend! I have to admit, this is probably one of my favourite holidays. There's just something about those pastel candies this time of year that I just love! They somehow taste different than christmas or halloween candies. {and who doesn't love a good easter egg hunt?} I also enjoy that it is so close to the beginning of spring with all its lovely colours and fresh breezes. I'm spending some time with my family and the boy over the next few days. This morning we even made these delicious Red velvet pancakes I spotted on From Portland to Peonies. I highly recommend them for their fun colour and cocoa-y taste!

I hope the weather is nice where you all are and enjoy the weekend! {perhaps bake something sweet too?}
