Cactus Art Prints

Yes, I confess, I have a bit of a love affair with cacti.  They come in all sorts of weird and wonderful shapes, sizes and colours and they are easy to keep alive!  Well, that is if you keep them away from scissor wielding little people (read: Ashlee) who like to see what things scissors can cut. The perfect solution to such destruction...a CACTUS ART PRINT hung high up on the wall and out of harm's way.  



The new pink and the teal printable cactus prints are now available in the shop.

Celebrating Valentine's Day

How do you celebrate Valentine's Day?  

Get all dressed up and go out for a romantic dinner, spoil each other with extravagant gifts, whisk yourselves away to a secluded island retreat?  Or maybe something a little more low key like popping on your fav romantic comedy, opening a bottle of bubbles and indulging in a box of chocolates.  Grand celebrations are amazing and all but not always practical. You know the drill...bills to pay, mouths to feed, work to be done etc, etc.  But that doesn't mean Valentine's Day has to be ignored!?!?

How about changing up your picture frames with a bunch of loved up art prints...



Or...spray paint magnetic letters gold and stick a fun print on the fridge...



At the end of the day, letting my hubby (and Ashlee) know how grateful I am for all the awesomeness they brings to my life is my favourite way to celebrate Valentine's Day...and maybe a chocolate or two!

THE GEOMETRIC FACTOR

Geometric shapes, a pop of colour and a quirky sense of fun is the inspiration behind these new art prints.   
I love the simplistic and clean design of a geometric pattern, it adds such a fun, modern vibe to a space. You can add just a splash of the geometric factor, or go a little geo crazy and create a whole gallery wall.  The geometric range of printable art is now available in the Etsy shop!

Gingerbread Man Hunt

Woo Hoo, it's nearly time for our annual Gingerbread Man Hunt...this will be our fifth year of hunting the little guy down!!!  First we bake and decorate him then when no one is looking he runs away leaving a trail of hidden clues.  It is such a fun little Christmas activity that you can do with one, or a whole bunch of kids.  

Here are the clues I put together for this year...





You can check out other year's clues here and here.  And...I have made free downloadable clue cards that can be edited so you can add your own clues and print out!




Enjoy!

PRINTABLE ART :: The Launch...

I am super excited to announce...the launch of Ashlee Rae's brand spanking new Printable Art!  Yay!!!  This is very exciting for me and I am thrilled to finally share what I have been working on.  

Since transplanting ourselves clear across the country, other than for Ashlee's 7th birthday party, I really haven't done too much design work.  But now that I am feeling more settled into the Western Australian lifestyle, I have been happily getting my design on and have come up with a bunch of new designs that I will be offering as printable art!!!  So...if you're walls are wanting a little injection of fun, colour, or quirkiness, check out some of the range...







Printable artwork is a super affordable way to bring a whole lot of personality to your space, from your bedroom to the living room and everywhere in between.   It's fast, affordable and even makes a great gift for family and friends...hint, hint, Christmas is fast approaching :) 

For my entire range of Printable Art, please take a look in my shop on Etsy

Monster High Party

Well, the time had come (as I knew it would) when Ashlee asked for the dreaded 'licensed character' party.  At the top of her party theme wish list was...Monster High party!!!  I am not a massive fan of using a ton of licensed party products and to be honest, here in Australia there really isn't much Monster High stuff around.  So, in order to keep with the Monster High theme, we used the pink, black, blue and white Monster High colours and added a few skullettes here and there along with some Monster High dolls.  And instead of the official Monster High argyle pattern, we went for a mix of animal prints.

Here are a few of the party pics...


















If you love the animal print design, printables are now available in my Etsy shop!
