Bubba life

It's been busy, tiring and incredibly amazing in bubba land. I've managed to scrape together half hours to do a little threadless design or two, as I haven't found many baby clothes I like! I gotta quickly post this before she wakes, but would love you to vote for my designs. :)

What I've been up to...

Hanging with this little lady! Ivy was born on the 23rd of July... she turned 5 weeks old yesterday.

She arrived peacefully (yay for Calmbirth classes, yoga, acupuncture, tens machine and all the other tricks I had up my sleeve for the birth) and is a very chilled bambino, though we haven't quite mastered much sleep as yet (getting 1 x 3-4 hour block at night plus another 2 hour one somewhere in the early hours). She can nap away in her sling or being held, but this doesn't bode well for naps for her mama.

Medley of sleeping Ivy Instagram shots from her first few weeks here at Park Street.

It's been an amazing first few weeks - hazy (from lack of sleep), happy and healthy. She's just beautiful and M and I are loving our new life as parents.

On the Shelf!

I had the pleasure of working with Tracey Brady on her self-published children's book, Mackie Neighbour. The very sweet story was illustrated by me, and is now available from the BookPod. I've received my copies and it is so great seeing the work in progress now finished and printed so professionally. I took a few Instagram snaps on this sunny Melbourne day :)

It was such a pleasure working on the book and we are both so happy with the finished result!

I've Finally Caught Up with Time

It's been so busy the past year, past 6 months, past month especially. But now... I've finally found some time. It might be short lived, but I am SO EXCITED about catching up on art projects, coffees in cafes, gardening, perhaps bloggin, little nanna activities before the craziness begins again.

I now have some time to post some illustrations from a recent kids book I did, more to come but here is a little sampler!
