You might have wonder why this little space was so silent, well I've been working really hard sketching, vectorizing and painting the new Illustration print line for my shop =] And I'm beyond excited to finally (an officially) launch it today!

{ sometimes print }

As I mention in a previous post, one of my goal for this year was to go back to pen and paper, draw more and try new things. And this is a new as it gets, I had the idea of selling prints for two years now, but I was always too busy to invest time on that little venture.

{ sewing with love // you are pretty awesome }

So to celebrate 2 of my lovely readers will get an 8″x10″ print!
To enter you just have to comment on this post and let me know:

1 – What's your favorite product from my Etsy shop
2 – What print you'd like to win!

As easy as that! This giveaway is open for International readers as well =] and also I am offering an awesome 20% OFF everything in my shop using the code “PRINTLAUNCH” at checkout until February 6th (I will also pick out the winner that day!).

{ dream big, little one // I love coffee and my blog }

I am excited to work on new designs to add in the next few months and to finally show you all my work so far. It has been very challenging to do anything with little Conner always asking for attention, and since he comes first many days I get almost nothing done, but others he just watches me draw, I'm hoping I can get him to love drawing and painting too =]

ps. I also added a few notebooks, cards and sometime soon (if everything works out) I will be adding other super exciting items with my designs on them =]



I will email you ladies soon to send the prints your way! and thank you everyone for participate and don't worry there will be another chance to win a print soon for everyone following me on Instagram!

    Oh, Joy– I love all of your new prints! I have to say, though, I especially love (and would love to win) the Be silly, be honest, be kind print. It would look especially cute in baby Emerson’s nursery :)

  28. Sara
    Sara says:

    I’m in love with the “Pretty Girls Like to Sew” print. I have a 10-week old daughter and even though I’m a very very very novice sewer… I’d love nothing more to hone my sewing skills and teach my daughter to sew one day. Something I wish I would’ve learned from my mom before she passed away 6 years ago.

    The print I’d love to have, is the one stated above, “Pretty Girls Like to Sew”. A very pretty reminder to not let this time, that I have as a SAHM, go to waste and too teach my daughter every thing I can. :)

  29. Brittany M
    Brittany M says:

    My favorite thing is the print that says craft your stress away. I would love to win that. All of your stuff is lovely!

    Its difficult as I have 2 favourites… “Creativity is Contagious” and “Craft your stress away” I think either would look great in my craft room once I’ve finished reorganising. If I was to win I think you’d have to choose one for me because I can’t decide!

  53. Christine

    The new prints are absolutely wonderful! I love your “Sometimes you need bad days to realize how good all the rest are” and “Dream big… little one” prints. If I had to choose between the two I’d go for the first one, because I think that it would be a good reminder to keep me going on those days, when things aren’t going my way.

    I love your blog! I especially love that it is so easy to navigate. I loved the sometimes print. I could not unfortunately access your etsy shop! I am sure I would love a lot of things there! Guess that doesn’t qualify me for the giveaway! well, hard luck for me! :(

  69. noe
    noe says:

    Well it’s no secret that I love anything and everything in your shop! Eversince I’ve found you I am dreaming of purchasing one too many things from your etsy shop, but the thing is… apparently paypal does not list my country (Paraguay) as an option. Therefore I haven’t been able to do so. Pls. if there’s some other way to purchase I’d love to learn. I really really hope to win one of this prints, specially because there aren’t too many blogs that would allow international readers to participate, my favorite prints? I have too many favorites! but I’d have to choose the Sometimes print… ;) you know I’ve been looking at that one! excuse my #commentoverload LOL

  70. Anna
    Anna says:

    I don’t know which one to pick as my favorite! You are so very talented! I guess my top three are: Sometimes, Pretty Girls and the Cherish yesterday one. I’m working on decorating and fixing my up sewing room (and getting a lot of inspiration from this blog!), and I think I would enjoy the Sometimes print. Cus I have to say, not everything I sew actually works…It just goes to show the bad sewing projects make the successful sewing projects more fun and exciting!

  71. Ahsamon
    Ahsamon says:

    I LOVE the new prints! Actually, I love pretty much everything in your shop :) My favorites are the “Dream Big, Little One”, the “Be Silly, Be Honest, Be Kind”, and the “Cherish Yesterday, Live Today, Dream Tomorrow”. If I had to pick one, I would probably choose the “Cherish Yesterday” one.
