It's been a minute since I updated the journal with new items in the shop! We've got a couple of brand new this week items and some fun collaborations from around Christmas time!
These two prints are new this week and are prints from paintings I made for two amazing ladies in my life with no intention going in for turning them into prints. But I loved them so much that I ended up making copies! Each print features an image inspired by a connection I share with each woman. The cow skull and prickly poppies was originally painted for my mother in law who shares my love for the Kansas prairie. She loves walking around in the grasses picking up bones and bouquets of wildflowers probably even more than I do. The second new print was originally painted for my old boss at Mojo's Coffee Bar, Patty. We met and bonded over making endless cups of coffee for the people of Newton/North Newton, and became even better friends after I had moved on to teaching and then to motherhood & self employment. Patty is opening up a new Bakehouse here soon and we decided she needed some art! I painted this chemex of coffee for her and we loved it so much we decided to sell it online and in her shop. Find both prints here.
When having a new baby, whether you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding, you are feeding that new little one around the clock. I remember feeling so overwhelmed by that with my first baby and this time around, knowing it was coming, I felt a lot better! Our new greeting card is perfect for either wishing a new mama good luck on their new adventure OR telling a veteran mama, or your own, how amazing they are. Find them here.
We released three new fabrics over the last few months! A dainty blue floral designed for Avery & Grey, rolling hills and cattle designed for Westbrick Salon & Boutique, and the cutest little houses on a soft pink background designed with Love of Character in mind. I'm loving designing fabrics for other small businesses and can't wait to start back up again!
I just listed a TON of new items in the shop, including the first few items from my upcoming collaborations! I've been working hard to get as much painted, restocked, and created before baby comes in April! It should be a pretty busy month or two for the house and the shop! Here's what is new this week:
-New 5x7 girl power fine art prints! I painted this one for the Women's March a few weeks ago and decided it would be fun to sell prints. Get them while they last!
-Butterfly Card sets designed for Dyck Arboretum. It includes 6 different Butterflies found in the Kansas area; a monarch, buckeye, tiger swallowtail, painted lady, grey hairstreak, and cloudless sulphur.
-New Cactus Baby Blankets, Burp Rags, and Teether Toys designed to fit with the boho chic vibe at Liv + Work!
-ICT Flag Baby Blankets, Burp Rags, and Teether Toys available online and at The Workroom.
-Monarch enamel pins! Our second design of enamel pin... they make the cutest pair!
We've listed quite a few things in the shop since our last update! December was a busy month of custom paintings, collaborations, AND of new products. Read a little more about them below:
-We celebrated the launch of our first ever limited edition winter print! Meet the narwhals and their arctic fishy friends available in baby blankets, burp rags, and teether toys. We only purchased a few yards of this fabric and won't be restocking... so if you like it grab it now!
-All of our cards got a little bit of a make-over! We're currently working on polishing up the brand/website a little bit and wanted to make sure that the cards fit in the new style. All cards now feature a beautiful font that corresponds with our future new logo! Check them out!
-We added brand new enamel pins to the mix! They are the cutest little accessory to add on to any outfit, purse, coat, hat, scarf, backpack, you name it! Currently we have little tiny bees available, but more will be coming soon!
-Two brand new tea towel designs have been added to the shop! One in our favorite sunflower print and the other with our new butterfly designs for Dyck Arboretum! The Sunflower towels are slowly making their way into shops across Kansas, but the butterflies are only available online and at the Dyck Arboretum Gift Shop.
Did anyone else have a "holy crap, it's december" moment like I did? All of the sudden it is time to decorate the house, listen to She & Him christmas on repeat, AND get gifts purchased for everyone you love! Luckily I worked ahead a little bit and had a few gifts already bought, but I definitely freaked out a little when I realized that I still had so many to buy (and figure out!) and not as much time as I thought!
I've got a few ideas for you though from this little shop of mine! A custom painting is always a cute idea (and I only have a few spots left!), and completely personalizable for the person you are buying one for! I've already had some really cute ideas come my way that I'd be happy to share with you if you need an idea or two. If you DO have an idea though or want to know our custom prices you can contact me here!

There are a lot of new items in the shop! We updated our teether toy design to feature a new, organic, and entirely U.S. sourced wooden ring that is coated with all natural beeswax to help preserve the wood AND it is safe for baby! Plus I think the new teethers are even cuter... but maybe that is just me!
With new teether toys and no longer selling bandana bibs (snag the last ones here), we needed to redo our baby bundles! We now have three baby bundles for you to choose from, either for yourself or for a gift, either way you are saving money! My personal favorite is our brand new bundle of our super absorbent burp rags for those spittier babies (aka normal babies?!?). Because let's be honest, one burp rag for a baby just won't do, and ours are a mom favorite!
It was about time for a new print in the shop! I recently painted one of my FAVORITE flowers, a pink protea! A few years ago I walked into our grocery store, saw one, bought it, and fell in love. I've been looking for one ever since and have been admiring them all over pinterest. I decided to go ahead and paint one for myself. Prints are now limited edition, make sure to snag one if you like it before they are gone!
....Aaaaand our holiday cards are FINALLY listed! Grab one or grab a few, perfect for a hand written note to go with your Christmas gifts, a place for your gift cards to go, OR for you to just let someone know how much you love them this holiday season.
