Sweet Friday/ Nursery Decor

purple and gold nursery decorHappy Friday everyone! A few days ago I updated my Etsy shop with some fun paintings that are perfect as a nursery or office decor. I love how these sets of 2 butterflies and a heart turned out. Adding some gold splatters was my favorite part. purple wall art, nursery decorunique nursery decorpink butterfly paintingpink and gold nursery art

All I Need Today is Coffee and Bikini

It’s been forever since I’ve done a Monday Coffee post and I’m excited to get back to playing with coffee in my sketchbook!!

But first I wanted to ask you something… These past few years I loved sharing my projects and behind the scene photos here on my blog and Instagram. But I keep asking myself if people still read blogs? Do you guys read blogs and if the answer is NO, what is your favorite platform??? Feels like with all the social media explosion we get overwhelmed with so much information and blogs are not as popular as before. I’m not saying good buy to my blog, because I really love this little creative corner- the idea of creating new posts always pushes me to experiment and share my little steps with you guys, so I’m going to continue adding new fun content here and I also plan something new!

Last month I published my first Skilshare class and I surprisingly loved creating video content so my next step is YouTube, so we’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck:)

This fun coffee print is now available in my Etsy shop
