In the round

I wanted to post about ten images of pretty beds, because what I really want to do right now is curl up and sleep- why must it be so dark at 4:30 pm? It does not help my productivity.
But instead here are some patterns and products from Thomas Paul that I love.
As I write this both of my children are enjoying making the most incredible mess of my living room, I have no idea what is for dinner and all I can think about are making more birds....

New friends

I want to neglect all of my duties as a wife and mother and sit in my studio and make these little birds all day long... I think it will end up being all night long instead.
Perfect for the Christmas tree, no? I will be adding them to my shop and a making some for the sale as well.

Getting ready for the Sunday Best Sale...

I have been spending every free waking minute getting ready and making things for the Sunday Best Holiday Sale, and I can finally say that I am feeling ready!
I have a few items still left to make, and some finishing touches left to put on some items, but I am feeling calm and productive- not something I could have said last week!

I just want to crawl into this bed right now and get about 14 hours sleep right now. My entire family has been sick, my husband has been totally out of commission with "The Flu" for four days, and both girls have been sick off and on since the last week of October. And I am madly trying to finish my work for the Sunday Best sale, so sleep has been in short supply.
Also those pillow cases make me want to add a whole new product to my line...Anna Joyce Design Bedding needs to happen asap.

New Canvases in the shop!

I added a few new canvases to my shop, and am working hard on new products too...Christmas stockings anyone? I will post them as soon as I have photos.

Yes please...

I will take one of everything from Orla Kiely's home line for the British company Heals.


I am so in love with the color palette from the latest TOAST catalog, especially the pops of bright yellow. Makes me want to get in the studio this morning...anyone free to watch my girls?

We had a really fun Halloween trick or treating with family and was wonderful that we were even able to go, our whole family has been hit really hard by cold and flu season, but we are all on the mend. I have hardly been in the studio for about ten days and today is the first morning I have woken up and not felt like I was hit by a truck in the night.
Here is a wonderful photo of Iris, our little "Monkey" from Halloween that our good friend Greg took.
