Well, it's high time for some fresh new art. I've been antsy to get you some fresh prints for your kid's rooms, and I'm really excited about these!
This next collection is the beginning of what I hope will be a flourishing "Inspirational" art section in my shop. Coupled with colors from my fabric collection, these art prints are really getting me excited!
To be honest, this is the first art in a LONG while that I've been excited to put in my own children's rooms!
Right now, there are 3 girl prints, and 3 boy prints that coordinate really nicely with the Children at Play fabric line. Creating that collection was a real awesome experience for me, because I was able to think so much about color. Color that I've been wanting to see in my own art prints for a VERY long time!
"Love you more"... a daily phrase in our house. You? It usually starts out as a simple "I love you!" And then an "I love you too!" and on to "I love you more!"
Love you more than the moon
More than the world
More than chocolate
More than climbing trees
More than tigers
More than the zoo
And so on.
It used to end with "I love you most!"
But when Addie was 3, she came up with a really clever solution:
Addie: "I love you Da-gee-ga"
Me: Did you just make that up? What does that mean?
Addie: "It means I love you the most I could ever love you."
It has since become a family phrase, but it always starts with "I love you more!"
And of course, this Balloon Print. A definite favorite of the Children at Play prints. Who wouldn't want to fly sky high like that?
This how to make a paper hat, is actually my original version that I wanted to put onto fabric. The idea didn't translate over like I wanted to, so I'm super happy to make it a print. The first time I made a paper hat for my kids, I had to look it up online. Pretty sad. It had been too long since I made one as a child. This way, you'll never forget!
This print, from the Chasing Planes fabric, is Ian's favorite. I've always loved this phrase, but after doing some research on who it's quoted from, I'm realizing that it might be an undocumented name? If any of you have info, let me know. Richard Dumb is claimed to have said this, but according to the www I can't seem to find his existence, other than that he said this phrase and everyone loves it.
I've been shooting up a storm around here at the house. I'm about ready to launch a website (horray!!!) that will have a lot more of a comfy home feel, with lots of more pretty things to see. I won't give away too many secrets, but it's been so much fun to put together! Very much like building a house. For sure.
And the "BE" collection! Is in the shop now too. I have some lovely photos to share of these, but they'll be up a little later. I couldn't wait to get these in the shop...so many of you have been knocking on my door about these.
I have more to share about the motivation behind them, but for now, you can see them in the shop!
And the good news is, you can purchase all of these in sets of 3 and 4, saving 20%
So, horray for new art! I hope you enjoy!
