It's been a little quiet here at the blog, but don't worry, there's been plenty going on behind the scenes!

First and foremost, we welcomed a new baby, Nathan, into our family on August 18th. We didn't know (and didn't expect) that he'd be a boy! He's now 2 weeks and change and we're really enjoying our new son/brother and family dynamic in general.

Here are Ruby and Juliette's reactions when they wandered into our bedroom in the early hours of August 19th to find their little brother had arrived in the night! (Ruby was a bit surprised and a bit disappointed that we hadn't used one of the names she'd suggested - like UllaBulla - but other than that she was on board with this little miracle). Juliette was, and remains, full of enthusiasm for her new role as BIG sister.

48 hours before Nathan arrived, I was at the printer (an hour from my house and, most importantly, an hour from my hospital!), busy putting some finishing touches on some of the designs that will be available via my web shop as of early October 2013. That's right! The web shop is in the works, and will be live in about a month. I'm so excited! The tulips above (minus the pieces of masking tape indicating where touch-ups are needed) are one of the designs that will soon be available for purchase!

In the meantime, I've started shipping some first orders of the dark floral wallpaper which has done so well on Pinterest. The very first order I shipped was to a stylist at Scripps Networks (HGTV, the Travel Channel) who used my dark floral wallpaper in a display in their lobby which centered around the theme "Future Botanicals".

So that's a quick update. I've been collecting e-mail addresses so I can let people who've expressed interest in the wallpaper know when my site goes live. If you'd like to be added to it, please e-mail me via the contact form on my website.
