Leaf love – 4 ways

Those gorgeous monstera leaves are invading my mind again….here are four ways I’m feeling inspired.

DECOR – This gorgeous leaf backdrop from almost makes perfect is just simplicity. So easy but so effective!

WEDDING STATIONERY – I love this sweet design from Euclid + Jayne over on 100 Layer Cake. So much inspiration in this shoot from Cari Courtright & Jessica Rankin!

ART – This sweet printable download from printabold on Etsy is just divine and makes for easy art for your home.

NURSERY – I’ve just started following Bluebird Kisses on Instagram and every time I see this sweet nursery I focus in on that gorgeous wallpaper (it is actually decals from Urban Walls!)

Flamingo Crazy

Flamingo fever has officially hit and I am loving it. There might even be a sneaky flamingo or two in baby girl’s nursery! So here are a few of of my current faves and you can be flamingo crazy too!

I’m feeling super inspired this month by all the amazing talent I’m seeing on Etsy – and I love their new design/layout. Pink – of course – caught my eye. Here are a couple of desktop essentials!

Instagram love – May

A Little Bright - Instagram May

Even though it has been a bit quiet round here I still love the Instagram format and ability to connect with new creatives. Here are a couple of snaps from my recent posts:

1. Along with everyone else who bought my 2016 calendar I love flipping over the pages to see what is next! 2. I had to take a snap of these sweet glitter toppers before sending them off to a customer – they are one of my favourites! 3. Even though it is getting colder I’m still trying to get out for a walk as often as I can. 4. My daily essentials – tablet and glasses.

New things #2 – Love Ideas Ink

I’m busy working on all the new Love Ideas Ink lines for Christmas this year and I can easily say one of my all time favourite new products are these gorgeous ceramic mugs with my hand lettering on them.

I have loved hand lettering for aaaages (see my Instagram feed for proof!) but was struggling with feeling confident about my own lettering.

A Little Bright - new things 2 mugs

I’ve been working on some lovely custom wedding suites though which prominently feature hand lettering and the feedback was so positive I decided to have a little faith in myself as well!

So my new range of ceramic mugs feature a couple of different hand lettered slogans such as “just breathe” and “hello gorgeous” and I am in love!

These will be available for sale in the Etsy shop very shortly!!
