a few more, and counting.

wee wander fat quarter bundles

So, after a bit of thought, I’m not going to be offering fabric bundles in the shop after this run. It was super fun to have them with the prints as a bundle, but with with the amount of illustration work I have (and mommy work) I’ve decided that cutting the folding fabric isn’t something I want to keep up. I wanted to offer these so you had a decor package that you could design around, and get directly. So, if you were considering buying these, we only have a few left. 

You can see the bundle here in the shop.

Happy Decorating!

Wee Wander Spring Art & Fabric Release!

sarah jane gallery wall

So I’m a little more than excited today to introduce you to my latest collection of art prints. It’s been a year since I’ve launched a new collection of art….and this collection is really special.

The Wee Wander fabric collection was so lovely to create and I’ve put together art prints that either come directly from the fabric themselves, or are inspired by it. These are available as fine art prints that will grace your walls for ages, leave a lasting impression of whimsy in your little one’s spaces, and tie in beautifully with my Wee Wander Fabric line.

In addition to new art prints, I’m also offering Fat Quarter Design Kits for the very first time ever!

(Very limited Quantity…and I’m not sure about when they’ll restock)

Each kit will include a Wee Wander print of your choice (choose from the 4 below) in a standard 8×10″ size.

heart quilt.blogPin it and Stitch it blog from the United Kingdom and was so generous to create a pattern for us out of the Wee Wander collection! This is SUCH a perfect pattern as the squares perfectly frame so many of the little illustrated vinyettes in the fabric. I love this design, and it’s a strong statement with out a lot of piecing.

Thanks so much Tracey!

But this pattern is just right for this fabric collection, with big oversized hexies to crop in on those favorite little vignettes of yours.

let them play.

summer flag.blog

 

I was able to head “home” for the weekend for a quick visit with my husband and all my siblings and their spouses to surprise my Dad for his birthday. It was so precious to be all together without our kids, and to reminise being kids ourselves…something that I don’t think has ever happened with all my siblings being adults.

Funny how we as adults can just go back to being kids again when we are all together. My mom bought cold cereal and ice cream like she would have while we were under her roof. It was adorable.

Reflecting on what it felt like to be a child, with all those floods of memories and funny stories, reminded me that kids are kids. And meant to be kids. Not adults-in-training. I grew up in a house full of play….and looking back…hard work and education felt like play to us. Learning how to create an awesome history project was play. Music lessons were play. Learning French was play. Even math practice was play (up to a certain point:). And our creative free time was just as much learning as play.

Being home reminded me that education and learning was such a vital part of my parents’ parenting style.. But it was hidden in a family culture of expecting excellence as well as creative play.  I grew up with parents who are truly children at heart and were so curious about the world in a playful way, yet my father has degrees from Cambridge, Oxford, among others. It’s something that I want to achieve as a parent….to let them play. And to not forget that children are children and through playing and fostering curiosity, they will learn and absorb the entire world around them.

Whoever wants to understand much must play much.

- Gottfried Benn

It’s also important for me to let go of that tendency I have to feel those pressures of adult life, and remember to play myself. The mind is full of expansion when we are open and curious, always learning. The world is still my playground, and I hope to never….not ever….loose that sense of wonder.
