Water SlidesOur family just got back from a vacation to the World Waterpark in West Edmonton Mall. It was a lot of fun! We spent an entire day surrounded by water and just playing and enjoying ourselves. The kids area is so much fun, my kids had the absolute times of their lives! Even our baby who missed both his naps was a joy because he was so happy playing in the water.

I love when we have the opportunity to take vacations together as a family. You get to get away from the hubub of your normal lives, you’re not constantly thinking about the laundry that needs to be done, or the yard that needs to be taken care of. Instead, you get to focus on each other, and the relationships that you have. I always feel so much closer to my kids, and more in tune with them when we’ve been able to get away and regroup.

Traveling has always been a love of mine, whether it’s to a warm beach in another country, or to see some of the worlds best monuments. I love getting out and seeing the world and all the beauty it has to offer, which is why I created my travel line of pop art.

When we are on vacation, I find that I am especially fascinated with the local architecture. I am always amazed at the intricacies and details that are in the buildings and statues, especially when they were created in ancient civilizations where they had far less technology than we do today. I find it amazing the time and effort put into their work, when now a days, we’re more focused on a quick turnaround than amazing production.

Anywho, that’s just a little insight into my mind and why I created the travel line of prints. I have been having so much fun with my designs, and am excited to launch my new line this week.

Take care for now!

I am so excited! My bestie and I are launching the etsy store after MONTHS of my prep and stress! And let me tell you! We are having a grand old time! Laughter, tears, happy dances… we have it all! How amazing is it to be doing something I love… WITH someone I love!

But seriously, every time I refresh my store and see the new listings all beautifully lined up and organized and pretty I just get more and more excited! My love for design and travel are meeting up at the cutest little coffee shop that is my imagination! It is so amazing to see your hard work coming out into a beautiful mass of…. BEAUTY!

It is a long night after a very long day for me, but it has been amazing, and my message for you is, to try! You never know until you try! If you’re thinking of trying something new, or taking a risk, just do it! Even if you fail, at least you know you’ve tried, and who can ask for more than that? It took me forever to finally do this, and I’m so happy I did! I wish I would have not stressed so much about perfection and having everything ready and just leaped in, but I’m here now and am finally sharing my art with you.

I hope you like it, and I hope a print or two will find its way to your home and cozy up next to the fireplace making your home that much more lovely.

Well, I must return to the listings and bid you farewell, but I shall return tomorrow so don’t you fret my friend! Until then, check out one of the prints that makes me extra happy:
