November in a Nutshell

Well, I must say that I´m sorry the blog has been rather quiet this month. My computers decided to randomly quit working, which has made blogging rather difficult. And while it was nice to spend a little time away, I´ve missed this blog and I can´t wait to get back to it.

While I've been away, I've been doing a lot of interesting and fun things. I've starting planning, budgeting, and preparing for 2012. I have a few new features planned for the blog, brand new packaging for the goodies in my shop, original DIY projects, and so much more!

For now, I thought I would share some Instagrams so you can see what the heck I've been up to all month long. (I promise some real photographs soon!)

an incredible drawing I did, my first sale in the shop!
quartz & agate stones that we bought, my new morning routine: coffee & to do lists

Right now, I'm working on doing a shop update & sale to celebrate the new year! This update is going to be rather small because it's really just a teaser for the more awesome things coming later in 2012! 

I'll be back very soon with a lot more to share. I hope you're having a great week!


Birch & Bees Online Shop

I've been looking forward to this moment for over a year when I first had the idea of opening my own shop. And finally, it's here! The Birch & Bees Shop is open for business! The selection and styles are fairly wide and sparse, as I'm just testing the waters out. Most of the items in my shop are one-of-a-kind pieces that I won't be reproducing. So, if you see something you like, get it before it's gone!

If you have any thoughts, I'd love to hear them! I hope your having a wonderful day!


Studio Tour: Where I Create

I´ve been doing a lot of renovating in my studio, making it more organized and inspiring. There are still 5 or 6 paintings I´m creating now in my spare time to fill more wall space. But for now, I think it´s coming together wonderfully. Of course it can always be better, but for not spending a single penny to organize and decorate this room, I think I did quite well.

Anyways, one of the best parts of this room is the small outdoor garden attached to the back of the room, which is overflowing with beautiful green plants. It´s open and exposed to the house, has high ceilings, and windows facing every direction. Definitely loving this.
