The Very Best Mother's Day Bouquet

I hold a very special place in my heart for dandelions.  They are the first real POP of color in our yard every year.  Truth be told, I love seeing them spring up with their vibrant yellow blooms.  It always warms my heart when my kids pick me a pretty little bouquet of dandelions.  The flowers may not last long, but they are abundant.  Dandelion bouquets have always been one of my favorite Mother's Day...or any day gifts.

Positively Poppies


Ruby red is my absolute favorite color!!!  Plus, I really adore poppies!!!  Here is another older sketch that I put into repeat and created a pattern.  I tried to show some depth with this pattern using the watercolor brushes.  The brushes are really forgiving and pretty cool to use for highlights.  I am loving these poppies!!!  Happy Good Friday!! xo



Blooms, Butterflies, Bees and Bugs

I had some fun tonight playing around with watercolor brushes in Photoshop.  These are some of my older sketches that really needed to come to life.  With flowers starting to bloom, trees beginning to bud, and bugs zipping around outside, I finally decided to color these sweet sketches.  I really love how they turned out and had a blast learning the brushes!  Bring on more blooms and balmy temps!!

Just Another Pattern Sunday....

The weather today was a bit wet, cold and gloomy, but I enjoyed paging through my sketchbook for some design inspiration.  I love it when I can pull images from different pages and combine them into a fun collection.  My sweet girly Ruby was right beside me working away on her drawings too.  We had a fun, creative day and made some pretty patterns.  Introducing....Juniper.  I really love the playful patterns and color palette of this collection.  Oh Happy Day!  Wishing everyone a great week!  xo

Little Designer Girl


Miss Ruby was on a roll today!  She created and colored 2 patterns from her sketchbook.  Loving her creativity!  This girl loves bold and bright colors just like her momma!!  xo
