Happy Halloween everyone!

I’m always so excited about this time of the year. Something in the air is more magical than any other time. I’m looking forward to baking some apple pie and pumpkin bread and lighting up a few candles this Saturday. What about you? What are your Halloween traditions?

Even if Halloween is in my heart, Christmas is on my mind. I’ve been working on new Christmas items for my Etsy boutique. It’s so exciting to share new items!

Also, for those of you who were disappointed about my book project, well, I’ve got news for you! I was able to order a few copies of the book, and they have shipped from the printer this morning! If all goes well, I should be able to add them very soon to my Etsy store too. I’m very excited to share my book with you even if it’s going to be a very limited printing this time. Still, it’s good news!

New at the boutique

What a productive week! A lot of new products have been added to the Etsy boutique! Thank you cards, gift labels, mushroom stickers, ornaments; I’ve got you covered!

And don’t forget that it’s time to order some Christmas greeting cards!

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

I know I usually send out the newsletter Wednesday or Thursday, but I worked so hard on some Christmas cards this week, and now that they are done, I just couldn’t wait to share them with you!

For Yule, I made a new series of magical plants cards. It is my selection of 5 plants that have a particular significance for Yule. Once again, it was a realy pleasure to explore the folklore and traditions surrounding these plants and to spend some time on the calligraphy and drawings. I hope you’ll like them too!

New at the boutique

As mentioned above, the 2020 Christmas cards are here!

Inspiration

This week, a recent favourite: Slow Down by Rachel Williams and Freya Hartas. This is such a beautiful book that will please all nature lovers, kids and adults alike.

Hello friends,

Exciting times! You can now find my work in a lovely store/yoga studio/tea shop!

I’m very excited to see my products, that I make by myself in my little atelier out in the real world!

At the moment, only a few prints are there as we are testing the waters, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to share more of my work in other local stores soon!

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

As I’m writing this, it is raining buckets outside, and it makes my morning mushroom painting practice even cozier! It’s so interesting to paint mushrooms because they are so varied and unique!

Inspiration

I recently found, on another rainy day, the book Floriography by Jessica Roux, the illustrator. I love her illustration style because it is so soft and detailed. Head over to the blog for more details on the book and my full review!

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

The kickstarter campaign is over, and it was unfortunately unsuccessful. Still, I’m glad I did it! Thank you so much to all of you who backed my project and shared it with your friends. It made all the difference, and I’m incredibly grateful! If it was your first time on Kickstarter, since the campaign failed to reach its funding goal, you will not be charged. It will be like nothing happened!

I wrote more on this on the blog!

In the atelier, I’m practicing painting mushrooms, and it is so much fun! The woods behind our house is filled with mushrooms and lovely colours, and it’s such a pleasure to be able to draw and paint from nature.

I’m already looking forward to Yule with this beautiful calligraphy piece that you can find as a print and a card. Don’t miss out on Samhain which is also coming up really soon!

I’m reading the book Fifty Plants that Changed the Course of History by Bill Laws, and it’s been a fantastic read so far filled with lots of information and anecdotes. I love to exchange fun facts with my friends and family, and this book is a dream!

It felt really good to work on some calligraphy pieces this week. Calligraphy has such a nice slow pace that requires all my attention.

One last thing,

You mean that I can watch real animals live anytime I want? Including bears, and whales, and bats, and birds?

Hello friends,

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

Only a few days left before I launch my Kickstarter campaign! It’s exciting, nerve-racking, and about a million other feelings!

I’m creating models of some of the rewards that will be available on Kickstarter. I wanted to dive deeper into the magical side of plants and explored some superstitions and rituals surrounding common plants. It was truly fascinating! It felt so great to be creating, drawing and getting ink on paper (and all over my desk, woops!). I’m really excited to share these with you!

It’s time to get your Xmas cards! I’ve put many items on sale, so go check it out!

I read,

This week, I listened to The Lost Girls of Paris, by Pam Jenoff. It was such a good book! It explores the role of female spies during WWII in such a captivating way. You follow three different women: Mary, a spy; Eleanor, the leader of the program; and Grace who is trying to understand what happened to the spies after the war ended.

Through these three voices, Pam Jenoff weaves a fascinating story of resilience and sacrifice. I highly recommend it!

One last thing,

I’m taking you to Ireland… to do laundry!

Hello friends,

One word for you: KICKSTARTER! I’m working really hard to bring you a beautiful kickstarter page. It is more work than it seems!

This week, I created the project’s video which is a book trailer. It was a lot of fun imagining the ambiance and then going outside to film. It’s such a different way to present information! I cannot wait to share everything with you! In the meantime, you can still check out the pre-launch page and sign up to get updated as soon as the campaign launches on September 1st!Β 

I’m also nearing the end of my second book’s first draft. It is so much fun creating this project. Unlike my other projects, this one will be in French first. It’s unfamiliar for me, but it’s very nice seeing this book take shape page after page. Can you guess what it is about? Here’s a sneak peak!

New in Store

This week I’m bringing you these beautiful book label stickers. These are actually the first stickers I ever wanted to make. They just took a while to come into the real world! I love the idea of having special book labels for my favourite books. It brings a certain level of magic and beauty to well-loved objects.

These are available both in French and English!

In case you missed it, I’ve been writing about my book on my blog. You can find behind the scenes and other fun info on the making of the book there!

I read,

This week, I finished Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming. What a great read! Michelle’s voice is both relatable and inspiring. It is incredible to see how she grew in a modest family, studied hard and created a life for herself. It was also fascinating to see how she navigated her role of First Lady and how she worked to bring out positive change in her country.

It was a really inspiring read which made me want to learn more. So, if you haven’t read this book yet, I warmly recommend it.

One last thing,

I’ve been seeing a little hummingbird every morning this last month during breakfast, and it has given me all kinds of ideas for our garden next year. In the meantime, enjoy this unique pool party!
