Yesterday I updated in my Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/helloniccoco) the photo backdrops of my quote prints! It’s been long overdue and I decided to use some of the vintage floral handkerchiefs that I’ve been collecting along with some other studio necessities like my thrifted mint green tape dispenser, washi tape (always), scissors and spools of spring. The delicate hankies are bright and colorful and contrasted enough with my designs and the photos definitely portray a pretty accurate feel of my creative space, just a little tidier.

>> dreaming of the outdoors

Happy Sunday friends! It’s a chilly one out there with a layer of icy rain on top of snow from Friday. By looking at my latest inspiration board in the studio you can tell I am dreaming of warmer temperatures filled with ventures in the great outdoors. These months of frozen landscapes allows me to appreciate whats to come next! Hope you are staying safe and warm wherever you are!

>> Summer Inspiration!

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen my latest and greatest inspiration board! I love to change it to fit seasonally, with bits of color and imagery tying it all together. It’s a calming and creative process for me to dig through saved ephemera and the end result being a work of collage hanging over my desk in the studio. I often find myself studying the patterns, hues, and small details within the collage which then aides in my hand drawn creations. This summer inspiration board is compiled of my recent adventures! While traveling throughout California, I mainly picked up interesting postcards as my souvenirs- beautiful visual eye candy makes me incredibly happy. My purpose in picking postcards was premeditated, I knew I wouldn’t be able to part with them and they would soon be tacked up on my bulletin board!

Notice the peeks of summer- ice cream sundaes, bears in swim trunks, strawberry wrapping paper, fanciful florals- all charming representations of my favorite things about the season! If you look even closer you’ll notice a blue PCA&D pin- I must admit, I received that at my orientation in 2004 (I save everything)!

>> March Inspiration

Peeking in this Tuesday afternoon to share my latest inspiration board.

I love to change it each month and be inspired by the season… and I’m so ready for spring time, sunshine and gardening- hence lots of florals and bright cheerfulness!

You’ll see below… a curious creature named Licorice decided to investigate as I took my snapshots. It was so cute I just had to include an outtake.
