My Etsy find of the day. Almost all of the info about this shop is written  in German, so I can only know that these are adorable, and all you should visit the shop. il_570xN.578534991_j4nlleschiwelt.


Swedish artist, illustrator and designer Petra Borner is well known for her beautiful cut paper collages. Growing up in the 70’s has had a huge influence on the work we see from her today. Simple, Dreamy, and Bold. What can I say, I love her work. Petra started as an animator / Illustrator, but her work can now be found on stationary, fabrics, and ceramics from major companies all across the globe. Obviously very busy, and I’m happy for it because this chic here has a hard time taking her eyes off the beauty.

August is here, and it seems that summer is too! Finally. And to celebrate we have Jennifer Brooks-Owen back by popular demand. This time she comes at us with something a little different. Although I suppose we always expect something a little different from this one.

Jennifer Brooks Owen is a multi-media artist residing in Renton Wa.  Her work ranges from handmade glass jewelry to multimedia paintings on paper.  Jennifer has received her art degree from Oklahoma State University in illustration and was awarded the Universal Limited Art Editions (U.L.A.E.) internship in New York City.  She served as an artist assistant to Elizabeth Murray, Carroll Dunham and Jane Hammond as well as master printers assistant at U.L.A.E. Jennifer moved to Renton in 2004 and has been exhibiting at Happy Delusions since 2009.

From 5-9 This Friday, August 5th come in for some wine, tasty treats, art, and meet this amazing artist. I know I’m excited to see all the new vibrant floral pieces Jennifer has been working on over the last couple of months. It’s going to be a grand time for sure, I can’t imagine a night with Mrs Brooks-Owen being anything less than fantastic! See ya there.

Stumbled upon this amazing artist this morning while browsing some of my favorite websites. Johnny Yanok is colorful, carefree, charming, and fun. What a treat. I’d love to find out more about this one. So cute!
