blush this

Special thanks to Jaz and Jax for letting me design their web banner for the blush connection. This was definitely one of my fav projects in an extremely long time. I really needed that ladies, and of course, you both prove to be a steady flow of ingenious inspiration. Merci beaucoup and many kisses.

joyeux vendredi

this is my sacred tree. I shot it while strapped to the back of a scooter in Cozumel. mmm, warm breezes, mojitos and a very bumpy side street.

have you been "woo'ed" this week? I have. and this weekend, I'm on a mission to woo you, so you too can feel warm and humble on these fine spring days. happy friday friends.

the blush connection

Holla. I'd like to take the time to introduce you to two of my favorite ladies in town. In the yellow we have the phenomenal Jacqueline, muse of all things inspiring. And in the pink, the electric Jasmine. Together they are the blush connection, a killer new band that touches the heart with whimsy, glamor and guitars.

Here is a sneak peak at the beats but check back at their site frequently for new recordings.

I promise you, they will make you blush.

hearts to snow home

As a print designer how can I not melt over books... I'm a huge fan of books, any kind of book. And a bigger fan of books as art. Isn't this a lovely way to display your precious printed works? I love it. You can find the conceal bookshelf at snow home's store based out of the UK.

OH p.s. we know how much I melt over patterns... well snow home has a killer selection of wallpapers.... oh drool.

finding friday

I think I may possibly be finding friday's new biggest fan. I simply can't get enough of the Vancouver based boys. I can't help but just sway my head back and forth. This is the kind of music that is good for the aura. You can listen to it when you are in any mood and your spirit uplifts itself. Rad stuff guys. I'm looking forward to actually seeing them live... one fine day soon I'll make it to North Van to catch a show....

p.s. they're selling their album on iTunes... check it out yo'.
p.s.s. my favorite songs are "Miss Hibiscus" and "Get Down"... cause life is so much better when you're getting down.

joyeux vendredi

are you as happy as this elephant? you should be. it's been a long, hard week, but it's over and the weekend is embracing us with open arms. we all need the hug. happy friday friends.

she makes me blush

pretty. valerydesignwrks is now selling her wall art on her etsy boutique! this new craze of wall art has my heart. it's a fantastic idea, for young teenagers who just neeeeed to re-decorate their room, for babies who outgrow everything within years and for us with our ever changing minds. wall art is a cheap non-permanent solution. now, I certainly wish I had the option of wall art when I was 14 rather than painting my room neon pink, orange and green... yikes.

if you are into wall art as much as I, then I suggest you take a stroll over to poppytalk's wallpaper sub section. she's got some great finds!

happy decorating!
