Congratulations Mark and Zach (& Ella). Wishing you many years of happiness ♥️
Here's a closer look at the custom dog I painted for @brookelorrainesmith & a peek into her ADORABLE dog themed nursery for her sweet baby boy.

I had never even heard of bok choy until we tried Blue Apron and now it is one of my favorites! I can never find it at our local grocery store, but my awesome friends Maggie and Adam have it available at their new Farm Stand, @simpleabundancefarm ,and I am so excited to go see it (and buy ALL of their bok choy)! What's your favorite obscure vegetable?

I'm starting to work on Christmas customs! I won't have time (hello, two kids!) for very many, so if you are wanting one order soon!

This is one of my customs from last Christmas, and still one of my very favorite paintings. From some of my favorite people to one of my favorite people.

Confession. Emmet has no idea (and neither does Henry, for that matter) what he was dressed up as for Halloween. We read a Curious George book about the circus a few times, there was a Sesame Street song about Elmo joining one, AND the circus is briefly mentioned in Runaway Bunny. So he at least has a vague idea of what the circus is, but none of them had a strong man in them (or a Lion??). I figure this might be my last year where I get 100% say in what his Halloween costume is, though, so I decided it didn't matter. And he made one stinkin' cute strong man.

I used to talk about succulents and cacti so much that my friends and family would send me anything and everything they saw about them. It made me smile. I referred to myself quietly as "the cactus lady." So obviously it was only fitting for me to design this cactus fabric. And obviously it is one of my favorites.

Our neighbor used to have chickens that would run laps around our house about twice everyday. I called them "Moose's Flock"... they drove him crazy. But I LOVED them and I think if they were still around Emmet would love them too. 
I've been trying to convince Dave to let me get ducks for years (I've already named one of them Einstein). He keeps mumbling something about how "Moose is a bird dog" and how "it's a really bad idea" but I'm still not convinced...

Have you ever heard of a Quoll? Because I hadn't until I started searching for animals starting with Q. 
I've been working on a new fabric design with this little quoll on it and I am really excited about! The bad news is that I lost all of my progress on it when my computer died (like dead, dead... real dead) two weeks ago. The other bad news is that I've been without a computer since and have gotten barely anything done at all.

I've been trying to see it as a brief vacation, rather than incredibly inconvenient. 😂

As soon as I started to paint this song it got seared semi-permanently in my brain for...a while. I found myself humming and singing it out loud, even slowing it down to sing it as a lullaby to Henry, the entire time I was working on it. One time though I started singing it to Dave and he looked me straight in the eyes with the most serious face I have ever seen and said "No!” And paused, then said “Do not sing that song. I HATE that song." Grinch. It’s after Halloween now though, which is the new “after Thanksgiving” when you have kids, right?

Anyone else seeing these rumors about an upcoming reboot? Thoughts and feelings?
