Home Sweet Home

My favorite thing to do at home is to create.  Since our move, I've been working on redecorating our home and while it's been fun, It's always a challenge to find the perfect place for furniture we have bought for our place in NY.  I also find most of the items I really like here are either too expensive, not available or the shipping is too costly.  I guess that's the problem when you live outside the US, where you can find great design for affordable prices.

In the other hand, that pushes me to be creative with what I already have.  So far I played around creating floor pillows, wall art, and even Kevin join in refurbishing a little bench he found outside, it was just what we needed in our entrance.

I am not sure what will be our next project. I recently have been thinking about floor stencils, the look is so fun and fresh. I also like the idea of creating my own design for the stencil.  Here are some of my favorites:

One of these might work for your home. Fun, right?
If I decide on what works for our home, I will make sure to post some pictures here.

What's Up New Year

Hey Blog. It's been a while!

There has been quite a lot of change from last year to this year.  Lately I have been hiding away in my apartment, drawing, updating and creating a whole new bunch of plushies.  I must say Montreal's winter is no Joke, and the (really) cold snowy winter has a lot to do with my new creative burst recently.  New designs have been added every week. I want to share some of them here.

There are two themes I am really excited about it.  The long grey winter days had me dreaming of summer and colors.  The result of that are The Carnies Plushies Collection.  They are characters that work at the Carnival, they have different personalities but they are all a little funky and colorful.

So, here you go. For now you can meet Edmond and Lysa!

If you get to know me, you will soon find out one thing: I am silly. Two Christmas ago I got for Kevin and I these funny adult onesies. They are so comfy and ridiculous, you have to have fun when wearing them.

When started getting cold here in Montreal, I started seeing college kids wearing those onesies everywhere. Since my creations are part of who I am, The Onesie babies Collection was born.

They are all available at Vivikas Shop. More exciting news coming soon!
