Joy is…

One my my many joys is driving my Mini. I smile every time I see it. It makes me feel happy inside. Plus it’s so much fun to drive (especially on roundabouts)!

Another joy is having matching black and white accessories 😉

Mirror covers and car by Mini Canada; capris and clutch by escherly design. Such joy!

Play Time

Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone. I’ve been playing around with markers again. 🙂

Yes, I know I “should” be working. But all work and no play makes for a dull life, doesn’t it?

Here’s the latest result of my joy-filled, playful pastime.

What do you see?

Perspective

When you look at the photo, what do you see?

A page that is empty?

Or a page that is FULL … of endless possibilities?

One hand, one pen, one imagination = endless possibilities!

Meeting The Challenge!

My escherly capri leggings are making their mark! The co-hosts for the #EHyogachallenge2 are wearing them during the month-long event that ends on July 1. The yoga challenge features new poses each day to highlight different Canadian cities and provinces/terriories, along with fascinating historical and cultural tidbits.

One of the co-hosts (@duchess_of_plur) is shown below in the Free Thinker pose for Frederiction, New Brunswick.

To join in, follow @duchess_of_plur and @canadianyogagirl on Instagram for all the details.

Name This Design!

Just finished this design and I’m searching for a name. Any suggestions?

What would you name this piece? ~escherly 2016

Probably my most complex design so far. Lots of interesting “moments” swirling around in there. What’s your favourite section?

Being Bold

This weekend I took the bold step of framing some of my designs. I realized that simply posting the images in my Etsy shop, or sharing them on my blog was not enough. It was time to walk my talk – to enjoy having them on display on my own walls.

I guess it’s my way of committing to my creative process. After all, how can I ask others to invest in my work if I’m not willing to do the same?

Here’s one of my favourite designs framed.

Now to find the perfect spot to hang it!

Banishing the Gray!

It’s a gray day today, so I decided to have some fun…with colour 🙂

I’m colouring in my escherly pencil case using fabric markers. Love the results – bright, bold, happy. The perfect antidote to the gray skies outside my studio window.

Adding colour to my day…and to my pencil case!

How do you banish the gray?

 

Jumping for Joy

Remember that birch tree drawing that I shared a couple of weeks ago? To my delight, it’s now gracing the cover of an iPad mini!

Spreading Joy

One of my hand-designed iPhone cases is on its way across the ocean to its new owner. So exciting!

Creating the designs brings me joy. Sharing them with others and anticipating their pleasure magnifies my joy.

In the next few weeks, I hope to have even more designs and products ready to share 🙂 So check back here, follow me on Instagram (@escherlydesign) or visit one of my sites:
