I hope you are all doing well!

How was your Valentine’s day? Ours was very relaxed and low-key: we made chocolate crepes, and it was delicious! It’s so nice to take the time to make a special breakfast on the week-end. With confinement, I’ve learned that any occasion to celebrate should be taken, and that celebrations don’t need to be grand affairs. It takes a bit of an effort to think about these everyday celebrations, but the effect they have on my mood is well worth the extra time and energy! Next week-end, I’m looking forward to making some waffles or maybe pancakes. I’m not sure yet, but it’ll be simple and delicious!

I felt incredibly blessed this weekend when one of you wrote me to tell me that she had tried my rice pudding and chocolate cookies recipes. I was so glad to know that you tried the recipes and that you enjoyed them! It’s nice to imagine us sharing the same foods in different places.

As for work, well, I’ve been sketching a lot for my book project. Unfortunately for me, I’m almost done with the preliminary and “research” sketches, and I’ll soon have to embark on the project itself. I know I’ve been writing this since the beginning of the year, but this book project is SCARRRYYYYY!!! The next step will be to review and amend the storyboard I drew last year. Send in your happy thougths!

To relax, I’ve also started knitting an Icelandic Yoke sweater. I really hope this sweater will fit well. So far, all my sweater projects have been failures, so I’m excited to try again with this one. I’m enjoying the colours work immensely, and it’s been very relaxing to knit with the snow and cold outside.

New in store

Lots of new things in store this week! I’ve finally received some notepads and sticky notes for all the stationary lovers! It’s so nice to infuse a bit of pretty objects in our daily lives!

I’m also thinking about Spring with this colouring page and flower card. Magnolias are one of my favourite flowers, and I’m very happy to share this one with you!

Inspiration

This week, I share another beautiful find from the for-sale-books bin!

Atelier News

Hello from the new atelier!

I hope this finds you happy and healthy!

What a move this has been! We made about a thousand trips between the old house and the new house to bring over plants and other delicate things. I’m really glad we are done now! We’ve spent a few hours setting up the atelier, and I am so happy to have my space back and running! I’m really excited to see what gets created in this new space.

I’ve sent for proofs for the Lovely Flowers coloring book, and the first one arrived yesterday. There are a few funks, so I updated it and wait for the next proof to come. I’m really excited to share this project with you soon.

I also sent my sketchbook to the Brooklyn Library! It was hard to let it go, but I’m happy to have brought it to an end and to have a complete project. I also worked on the storybook version, and I’m waiting for some proofs to arrive. I cannot wait to see them and to share yet another book with you!

New in Store

The shop is back to normal with both digital and physical products available!

And, a special surprise: with the move, I found some old cards and decided that it was time to let them go. So, for the entire month of July, I’ll be adding some of these lovely cards to all of your physical item orders for free! I really love these cards and some are still my favoutires, but I need room to create new things. Out with the old, in with the new!

No coupons needed, so it’s really simple and easy!

I also added a new coloring page and the corresponding greeting card and print for all the plant lovers out there! When you spend 2 full days moving plants, you realize that you have a plant family!

Youtube

The final flip-through for my Brooklyn Sketchbook Project! I had so much fun creating this book, and it’s so much fun seeing it complete!

One last thing…

Our cat was so stressed by the move that she thought she was a dog. This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing!
