Happy Birthday Little Lady!

Posted in Uncategorized by tokicollection on December 2, 2009


So, today is my niece’s birthday. She’s six! Emily is undoubtedly the coolest and funniest little girl that I know. She visited the studio one day and discovered a mountainous bag of colored string. Jackpot! Friendship bracelets for everyone she knows. She’s quite the apprentice in the making. Just look at her…she understands the importance of protective eyewear! And, she came prepared. Check out the Blue’s Clues yogurt drink and cheese squares.

Today’s your day. I am thankful you are in my life. You endlessly make me laugh and surprise me.

I get an instant smile across my face when I see beautiful work spaces. Makes me want to hijack their studio and take it over! Ok, I’m not that crazy but I do draw inspiration from pretty spaces from the likes of artists like Rilla Alexander. Not only are her illustrations incredible, but she has a studio to match! Look at that natural light and of course, the dog.

My own studio is constantly in flux. I’m always moving furniture, adding new prints, and buying new things. Since it’s like a second home, I figure it should feel like one too.
