🐇 HAPPY EASTER 🐰 Hope everyone has a magical day with their friends and family. Meanwhile.. I think I've eaten my bodyweight in chocolate already 🐷 But I'm pretty sure Easter chocolate has no calories 👏 So I'm going to go have a choccy hot cross bun and digest it with a hot chocolate. If you're waiting for a reopening announcement, I'm sorry to disappoint you with all my food talk instead but I promise we will be opening again soon. Thank you all so much for your support and patience xx ❤ . 📸 Stunning photo from @these.moments.of.mine ❤❤❤
💛 WEBSITE TEMP CLOSED 💛 ______________________________ Some of you may have noticed that I've been posting less lately. Events have happened in my life over the last month or two that have required a lot of energy and time. I've got projects coming out of my ears and boy am I struggling to keep up. . I can feel myself slipping into a place that's stressed, anxious and not inspired at all. I have tech that's broken and no time to fix it. ...because of that, orders were late for the second time this month and I am usually so on with it. I've been apologizing over and over for missing DM's and emails and I'm knocking back custom after custom. Everyone has been so lovely & patient, thank you 😭 🙏 . So I've decided to take a little mental health break. . Time to catch up, time to look at my children in the face while they're talking to me, time to fix the absolute mess that is my computers and printing systems 😥 . I know it's frowned upon to show a flaw in your business. But I'm only human, a one woman show and I am absolutely exhausted. I desperately want to keep delivering beautiful, perfect prints and art that I love to you. I just need a little time out to get my shit together 🌸 .
Sunday morning chill.. 👌 (well for me anyway, hubs is outside mowing the lawns - ha ha hubby 😜). . Just dropping in to post a picture of our Darling Jewel Print. Because we all need pretty things to look at while scrolling on a lazy Sunday. . xx . . . . . . . . . . . . . #kidsprint #characterart #nurserystyling #nurserydecor #dustypink #illustration #floralart #floralprint #flowers #girlsroom #girlsbedroom #girlsroominspo #watercolour #watercolourprint #painting #australianartist #aussiesmallbusiness #homeinspo #homedecor #littleone_ #littlebaby #nurserystyling #nurseryinspo

It's international women's Day and I've read some incredibly inspiring posts. I've also read some gut wrenching news articles. Today has dredged up a mixed bag of emotions for me. While it highlights the incredible achievements of women. And it makes me proud to have so many courageous and caring ladies in my world. It also lights a fire in my belly. A desperate need for my daughter's to grow up in a world that's equal and safe. To not be a statistic, to teach them to pay attention to the plights of the women around them and our sisters around the world, to be brave and outspoken. . I urge you all to take a little time today to read the articles. I will be and then tonight I will sit down with my girls and show them women inventors and the "Firsts Of", I'll tell them about the brave who fought the system for us to have the rights we do now. Maybe they'll discover a hero. . . . . 📷 Nothing to do with my post but a very pretty picture all the same. Our Little Captain print taken by the lovely @these.moments.of.mine
How adorable! It makes me so clucky seeing gorgeous nurseries like this. Our Olive Print up there on the wall 😍 A painting I did with the hopes of adding a splash of texture to a room. I've been sent piccies by customers of it in kitchens, hallways and their little one's spaces. There's something about a little greenery to tie in a space 🌿 . 📷😍 @tegan_jean . . . . . . . .
❤ New Prints ❤ . Woodland animals with pretty watercolour flowers 🙌 . I'm so naughty I meant to post this version of these guys the other night but I hit the snooze button a little too early.. I can see a few of you have found them on our website already though, thank you for your orders! I'm so glad you're liking them 😘 . I'm itching to sit down and draw up a bunch of Australian animals as well as a jungle baby set but I've got a LOT of customs to finish before I can. . . . . . . . . . . . .

New prints 🙌💙 . I created these sweet little guys for one of my dearest friends in the world and now that her baby shower has come and gone, I can release them on our website. . They also come with flowers in their hair, but I'll post a preview of that set shortly. . *FYI If you would like the backgrounds coloured to suit your nursery, just send me a DM before ordering. I'll add it for you at no extra charge but I just need a heads up . Also, you could use our discounted set of 2 (twice for the set) for a sneaky discount but they're also available seperately on our website. . They really were made with an unbelievable amount of joy.. And I hope you love them as much as I did making them 😊 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #print #artprint #gicleeprint #fineartprint #australianartist #watercolourartist #watercolourpainting #bunny #dear #fawn #deerprint #floralart #kidsprint #boysroom #girlsroom #nurseryart #rabbit #girlsnursery #girlsroom #woodland #boysnursery

The Whimsical Wall has been such a journey for me, a wonderful, winding, fast paced.. head under water, flying through the clouds type of journey. And I've been offered opportunities from powerful women.. women with vision and drive that are beyond inspirational. . One such woman whom I'm overwhelmingly grateful to bump into, that's allowed me to run beside them on their own winding path - Jess from @adoredillustrations . Working with her on these beautiful books and now flash cards. She's building a world that will introduce children to Art, each picture a story to unravel with your little one, beautiful words and a spark in every book that could ignite a life long passion for learning. . I love seeing her success and it makes my heart so full to know how much people have embraced and enjoyed these books. . I also should mention that Jess still has me painting up a storm for her, I can't wait to share with you all the wonderful things I'm working on. ❤ . . Picture taken by @steph.soj showing the Amazing ABC and the picture Vase, which I will shortly make available on our website. . . . . . . . . . . . . #flatlay #artprint #homedecor #nursery #nurseryprimt #girlsroom #boysroom #girlsbedroom #neutralnursery #bedroominspo #kidsroominspo #kidsprints #watercolourprint #fineartprint #kidsroom #illustration #childrensbook
