Anna Joyce in Japan!

For months now I have been half joking that my next move was to become "Big In Japan" ( I am totally not joking...I really want to visit) and I just got one step closer to my goal! My work is now being offered on a curated design site in Japan! Next up an invitation and plane ticket- lets do this!

Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Because I am so busy during the holiday season, our family starts the holidays a little early- we get our tree first thing on Friday morning after Thanksgiving, make ornaments all day and then trim the tree to Christmas music in the evening. It is a fun tradition and lets my girls savor the holidays a little more even thought I have to spend most days in the studio. I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!

Anna Joyce as the Etsy Featured Shop!

My blog had been horribly neglected, but I have a good excuse... I was the Featured Shop on Etsy Nov. 14th and 15th! It was such a huge rush to have so many people viewing my work, contacting me and placing orders! Etsy gave me about four weeks to prepare for this amazing opportunity and I have honestly been working on nothing else. Thank goodness for Emma, my amazing studio assistant who does so much good work for the shop- she helped keep me sane and organized!

Here are a few images of my studio from my interview and you can click here to read the whole thing. I also created a video showing me making a pillow from start to finish that you can watch right here. I loved making the video- you can expect more in the future. And yes, Dane, I promise to blog more...

New in the shop!

I have a whole collection of new bags in the shop tonight (with more coming this week!)...check them out right here.

The West Elm Market

I am so excited to go back to New York this Spring for a ton of reasons, but one of which is to visit this new West Elm Market, it looks totally amazing. I think one of the reasons it looks so very appealing is that my very own best friend Dane Tashima did all of the photography for the campaign. Um, amazing no? I am bursting with pride...It is so wonderful to watch someone so talented come so far and reach their dreams right before your eyes. So check out the West Elm market and if you find yourself really, really wanting a garden hose even though your live in an apartment with no yard- it just might be the photography.

I am really excited to be a part of this styling and photography workshop this weekend at the Ace Hotel. I am going to be speaking about my experience using a professional photography to brand my work and expand my business and then the amazing and talented photographer Lisa Warninger and stylist Chelsea Fuss will show you tricks of the trade.  If you are a creative profession and take your own photos you cannot afford to miss this workshop. Having good photography is pretty much everything when you are building your creative business and this work shop is being taught by the best in town.
See you there!

Anna Joyce + Liberty of London!

This fall I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Liberty of London to help promote their new fabric line, "Liberty Lifestyle". The prints are stunning and working with Liberty has been a dream come true. I remember going to visit Liberty when I was ten years old and my grandmother took me to London. It was the first time I really loved fabric. This DIY project will take you step by step though how to make an appliqued pillow that I designed exclusively for Liberty and comes with a free down loadable pattern and instructions. Enjoy! You can get to the Liberty Craft Blog for the full post right here.

And a HUGE thank you to Lisa Warninger and Chelsea Fuss for the photography and styling of the project- I could not have done it without them!

Purl Soho + Egg Press = Amazing

I love Purl Soho, we all know that. And I have been a huge fan of Portland based letterpress company Egg Press since my days as a shop girl in Chicago. So when I saw today that they were collaborating on a collection together- what could be better? This sweet set of needle point patterns illustrated by Egg Press could not be cuter and the supplies and instructions from Purl Soho are top notch. It is inspiring me to cozy up with a cup of tea and do some hand work...
