a few more things...

thought i'd share a few more things i've sent off from my shop in the past week. baby olivia had a really fun and vibrant colour scheme for me to work with. hot + light pinks, mustard yellow, brown, and tiffany blue. i suggested adding another darker shade of aqua to the mix to help balance out the warm and cool tones, and away we went. i think they turned out really well, bold + sweet + fun. i hope wee olivia feels the same way.

these personalized 'd' totes were sent off to a new home in alberta last week. i was pretty excited about this order, i love making my tote bags, and i'm trying to get them noticed a little more. let's hope this is just the beginning!

and then one more set of cloth blocks! this was a fun set, it's the first custom order i've had for a baby boy, so i happily pulled together some adorable boyish blues + greens. my customer loved the alexander henry 2D zoo fabric so much we decided to feature it on each block, and extend the rest of the colour scheme from there. it was fun to work in a different way, and i love how the finished product turned out. i also got to use one of my fave recent fabric purchases, tula pink's caspian in dark blue from her awesome neptune collection [shown, bottom left]. love it!

another new baby boy will be getting a set of blocks in a couple of weeks. i'm putting them together in fits and spurts when i carve out the time, and i'll share pictures next week. i'm trying hard to find a balance in life and work these days. with my 4 year-old son on summer vacation, it's more difficult to work during the day, but i must say i'm having fun with a little vacation time of my own. we're having some incredible weather in vancouver this past while, so i'm just basking in it while i have the chance! have a great weekend everyone, and i'll see you back here next week...
