I hate watching myself on TV, or hearing my voice on a recording, but these tutorials are too fun to pass up! Please don’t judge my pregnant state of mind and rambling. I’m blaming it on the pregnancy brain!
Now it’s easier than ever to update your Family Proclamation print with a fun and different design! I decided that even though I’ll be slowing things down in the next few months with the new baby, I still wanted everyone to have the opportunity to have this wonderful message in their home, so I’ve made about a million different color options in an instant download format so you can print the Proclamation yourself! Yay! Click HERE to see all the color options.
Did you catch the segment on Studio 5 I did doing a fun demo on Gocco printing? Ready to try it yourself?! Yay! Click on the tag images below to download printable pages of both designs, plus my template for the gocco print and a bonus 4×6 inch “Dearly Thankful” card. Score! If you have any questions about my process, feel free to get in touch and I’ll help you out.
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:
Geometric Deer Silhouette by GeometricInk
Precious Diamonds Family Tree from Martha Stewart
Be a Nice Human Print from ohmydeer
Hello Floral Print by Alexa Z Design
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.
The shop is also being featured in a fun giveaway on Spoonfulzine.com, so click on over to this fabulous blog to enter to win one of my prints!!
This is an fun challenge to write any haiku about spring! I get to be a judge and the winner get’s this fabulous Victorian Lace Egg gold foil print as a prize!
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!!
With the new year comes a new and rambunctious primary class. To keep a small measure of order in the class we had them come up with 5 rules they felt they could follow, and we added the incentive of treats if they did. Please enjoy!
