Kid Style: Stripes & Prints

Only one more month left of summer vacation. Next month is one of my favorites. Not only is it my birthday month (yippee!!) but it's back-to-school shopping time! That means lots of new paper supplies and clothes! Two of my favorite things! 

I wanted to share some adorable things I found at Boden. One of the things I love about children's clothing is that as long as the colors match, mixing prints and patterns is totally acceptable. In fact, it's completely adorable! 

Below is an outfit I'm drooling over for my daughter:

Illustrated Map of Maine

Inspired by our recent move,  I've started illustrating a series of maps of Maine. Now that it's summer, I've been enjoying lots of outdoor mini-adventures with the family, exploring all the beaches and lighthouses near Portland. 

Other maps in the series will focus on specific cities. Starting with Portland (obviously!) and then moving on to the next as inspiration strikes. 

If you have favorite spots in Portland or elsewhere in Maine, please let me know in the comments, or send me a message! I'd love to hear your suggestions as to what I should add next.

Friday Color Inspiration

I discovered Rifle Paper Company about a year and a half ago, and they've been a source of inspiration for me ever since. The illustrations are by the lovely and talented Anna Rifle Bond. Below is some wrapping paper by Rifle Paper Company that's available for sale at Paper Source.

Peonies are my favorite color, and always a source of inspiration to me. Hope it's warm where you are! Happy Easter Weekend!
