Print Love Via Pinterest & Etsy

12th September 2014

Like many people, I love Pinterest and of course Etsy. I spend most of my time there getting amazing ideas, and also getting greatly overwhelmed by all the amazing talent out there. Here are some of my latest faves:

I’ve Been Missing You All My Life…

21st April 2014

Mother’s Day has meant so much more to me in the last year now that I am actually a momma. I never believed that such a little person could bring me so much happiness, and as I reflect on how much she means to me I feel so blessed to be part of her little life.

A few weeks after I had little June I stumbled across the amazing series by PBS, Call the Midwife. I may have still been a bit emotional as I watched, and seriously cried at least once during every episode. And for those of you who knew me pre-baby, I DID NOT CRY. Like at all. There was one line in a particularly sad episode where a new mother was holding her new baby girl and the nurse asked her how she was feeling. The mother profoundly responded; “Like I’ve been missing her all my life.” That line put words to exactly how I feel about my little one, and I’m sure every mom feels about their children. It’s like a gap has been filled, and I think about that all the time…

I am so lucky to do what I do so that I can stay at home and be with my little Junebug all day. Thank you to everyone for all of your love and support for Collectivity Lane. Without it, there is no way that I could be doing what I love (designing and being a momma) from home.

As a special thank you, I’ve teamed up with Let’s Get Together for a special Mother’s Day giveaway. It’s time we show our mommas how much we love them, and these fantastic gals have put together a great list of meaningful gifts for moms. If you’re feeling a little stuck, check out their blog and enter for a chance to win your print of choice from my shop! Bonus!!

Well, I have certainly been keeping busy  this spring with so many fun things at Collectivity Lane. First, the Bijou Market last week was a total blast. I didn’t get too many pics, but it was so fun to meet other vendors and locals who love handmade beauty as much as I do.

Black + White = What I need in my house!

3rd February 2014

I can’t stop finding beautiful black and white trends that I feel are a necessity in my house. I mean, I love the classic and sophisticated look it brings into a room, yet is so fresh that it will go with anything! I did jump on the bandwagon a few months ago and painted a large black and white striped accent wall in our entryway. That has since been covered by a new and hopefully successful attempt at herringbone panelling (currently in the final stages of being painted). Now I feel like I need to fill that void with something new… and if anyone knows where I can find curtains like these, please tell me where!!

The Blog is up at Last!

19th January 2014

Well, this has been a long time coming, and I’m so proud of myself for finally getting this up and running. January is the time for resolutions, and one of mine is to share my love of all things design. As of late, I’ve been putting a lot of work into my house and working on new prints for the Etsy shop. Since I’m not at home, I figured now is a great time to share some pics of projects I want to do in our house. Yay! This wood paneled accent wall is so creative! I love that it’s not the typical horizontal panels and would actually use less materials (which saves me $$$!) I want to try this out on one of the walls in our bedroom. Love.
