The EH Journal: April

Happy April!

A lot has been happening this month so I'm glad you're here to celebrate the first full month of spring with me because I just have so many new things & so much inspiration that I'm excited to share.

My favorite thing I've been able to design lately is personalized stationery! I've been wanting to try this out for a long time and can't wait to see which prints everyone likes best. There are 20 available, most of which I drew from my upcoming wallpaper collection. These sweet, 5x7 sets can be ordered plain or personalized. 
In addition to some new online store happenings, I feel grateful to have been able to collaborate with three wonderful small businesses.

1. The Tiny Tassel: I have several new Spring earring launches coming out with The Tiny Tassel, the tennis racket being the first. Seeing how Mimi Striplin, the owner of the Tiny Tassel, turns my art into these beaded earrings is always fun. Keep your eyes peeled for the next two as well...let's just say they'll make really cute Easter basket gifts. 
2. Silk scarves and hair ties created with Created By. I immediately framed the "Flutterby" scarf when I got these samples back in the Fall! Created By is a female owned brand based in the South and I hope you enjoy the pieces we've designed together. These Spring styles are my favorites yet. 
3. A swimsuit print for Barrington Gifts: When Barrington Gifts sent me a tote and pouch featuring my swimsuit art prior to launching this collaboration, I couldn't believe how great the quality of their bags was. Truly, obsessed. And very honored that I got to design a print with them. Our "Bathing Beauties" print is available in the pictured tan as well as blue and you can find it listed as an option with any product on their website. 
As I source inspiration for my work, I love discovering and bookmarking fun photos, fabrics, dresses, accessories and more as a reference. Observing the different palettes being used by fashion brands heavily influences my own color choices. I think it's fun to share what's catching my eye so you can get a glimpse of what inspires me. Peruse the collages below to get inspired with me and you can even shop some of my finds here.
And that's a wrap on the April digital journal email! Thank you for following along :)
