I know i haven’t been the best with posting this year – and for a good reason! But there’s no way i wouldn’t post a 2018 calendar. It’s our little tradition for so many years now. This year, i thought i’d try the circle calendar version and boy did i love the challenge. Surprisingly, it was the easiest to design as well. I’ve already sent mine to print in an A3 size on black paper with gold foil of course.

The format is super easy too. Once you reach to a point you can’t read the dates, you can flip the print and voila!

I’m sharing the pdf files with you, that you can use the same as well. Print on any type of paper you want, any color and any foil. Oh, the combinations you can create! Hope this year brings the best with its arrival, we surely need a good year!

Preferably print in A3 size in order to make sure that everything is readable. The file is in A3 format. Everything is vector, so feel free to give it to a printer for foiling and your choice of paper. For your own printer, i’ve created two versions black and gold.

Black Version / Gold Version

Oh hello winter! Colder days are already here. The Christmas tree is up, fire burning in the wood stove and us sitting on the couch working once Jason falls asleep for the night. Wouldn’t have it any other way. I vividly remember how last winter was cold and heavy on me, but experiencing it with the a little guy is so much different!

We saw the first snow on the mountain today and hopefully Jason will see his first snowfall if it doesn’t melt away.

On a sidenote, don’t you just love a moody weather on the beach? It always gets me with these dark clouds contrasting the bright blue waters.

Gathering the last of the flowers this week, and i’ve been scanning them every night once J falls asleep. It’s such an relaxing project, almost therapeutic. Creating arrangements in the dark and seeing how they show up on my screen. Our garden is full of roses and i can’t wait to create something with the yellow ones (since it’s my favourite colour this year).

The roses are from our garden and the blush / yellow bougainvillea i “stole” from the cutest little house from our walks down at the village.

Thought, some flowers would be nice for this week with all the heavy events that have been happening. Not that i expect they will light up the mood, but at least bring some hope in the horizon.

Don’t know about you, but we’re waking up every day to some really nice and chilly mornings and in the evenings, the air smells a lot like Autumn. This time every year, i get especially inspired but hot coffee and the leaves falling, as i’m pretty sure you all are!

So i quickly illustrated today for the sake of creating something after such a long time. The pink still lives strongly around here, so here’s a wallpaper for those who are fully embracing fall and for those who are still can’t let go summer.

But really, what i’m mostly excited about is Walking Dead and first Halloween with J!

Vintage tropical patterns, white linen, white lace, woven shoes, bags, straw hats.. that’s pretty much everything that has been on my mind lately. I’ve literally have fallen in love with my Pinterest all over again the past couple of months and the dream girl on my Wear & Styled boards.

Psst.. i may be toying with the idea of creating silk scarves -you know the ones that you can wear as tops too- and i may have been practising on some woven beach bags. When i can’t find what i like, you know me.. i’m all about making it myself. So who knows, maybe one day i’ll launch a few different things on my shop at last!

This tropical piece was an experiment of colour play and vintage mood. A pattern i would love to wear as a scarf maybe? So far it sits on my desktop and i’m sharing it with you as well!

Last Sunday, we took advantage of the rare sunny weather and went on a nice long walk by the beach. Surprisingly, life happens and i don't get to enjoy everything the island has to offer me often. Most of the times we just simply have too much to do, having only the evenings to watch a movie, relax and recharge for the next day.

The past couple of weeks have been one of the most stressful in my life, as it's what happens when big changes are coming. I surprised myself by how difficult it was to stay positive as i usually do, but i always have my other -positive- half to bring me back to normal myself.

Today i feel like a new me focusing on my achievements and not my failures. Above all, i want to encourage you all to do more of the things you love every day. Stop being held back by the things you can't do, and focus on what you can do and how you can make it better.

We have just the right plans for the mood tonight.. La La land! I bet this movie will make me see everything so much brighter. Here's to enjoying life a little more! You can also download an iPhone wallpaper of this artwork here.

Happy February everyone! My birthday month is here and i’m kinda terrified stepping into the big 28. Just writing it down feels so foreign to me and i suddenly feel older than ever. Still got some time left till i’m thirty, so i’ll cherish the final two years of the beautiful twenties.

I’ve been working on lot’s of “red” projects lately – this colour just makes me really happy! I’ve got two secret projects to share with you very soon, but until then i designed two valentine’s day wishing cards for you. Hope you write some love notes on them to your significant other, or your gals!
