new coloring pages in the shop!

Living at the beach, I spend a lot of time hunting for inspiration along the shore and in tide pools. I've got a new set of coloring pages over in the shop inspired by all the things I find by the sea! You can check out the details HERE

exploring we will go

A while back we made the promise to each other to always make time to seek adventure as a family (you can read about it here). Exploring new places and going outside is a big part of our daily lives and once in a while I like to share a little peek into our adventures.

polymer clay bangles

I love bracelets and I have a really big collection that I switch out depending on my mood. I also love finding ways to create my own bracelets and today I am sharing one the easiest ways to create colorful custom bangles!

Polymer clay is my favorite supply to use for this project- it is easy to work with, affordable and come in lots of beautiful colors.

I start by selecting two or three different colors that I roll out, then twist together and then roll again until the colors begin to blend together.

Then I like to add little dots of color and roll again.

The last step is to form the bracelet into a circle. First measure your wrist and then shape the bracelet a little bit larger.

Bake bracelets on a baking sheet according to directions on package.

The result is colorful and unique bangles!

view from the van

We've still got a little more work to do on our van before it is road trip ready. In the meantime,  we've been having so much fun taking lots of day trips. We love opening up the back, pulling out our sketchbooks and a picnic lunch and soaking up the views!

collaboration art prints in the shop

As many of you know, my husband Andy and I really enjoy collaborating. While our style, process (and pretty much everything else) is TOTALLY opposite, when we collaborate something magical happens. I am happy to announce that we have picked a few of our favorite collaborations and turned them into art prints. In the coming weeks and months, we will be adding more. You can view all of the art prints over in the shop HERE
