My fabric can now be purchased on Spoonflower!!

I'm so thrilled to announce that my fabric is now available for purchase at Renée Anne's shop on Spoonflower!  All five fabric designs done in collaboration with Fleur + Dot are now available to you for your own creative project! Remember this cute recent photo in Babiekins of Fleur + Dot's romper featuring my pink bird farbic?  I am super excited to see what you come up with, so make sure you send me your photos so I can share them.  I've always envisioned my work on children's bedding, pillows and curtains...maybe you can make that happen!?

I'm working on more fabric designs to be released soon!  
Remember that I also have matching party items available at my Etsy shop.

Etsy:Made in Canada, Sault Ste. Marie!!

I am so excited for this coming Saturday when Etsy: Made in Canada will be happening in cities all across this country of ours, even here in Sault Ste. Marie!

Join us on Sept. 27th at the Mill Market from 4- 9pm.  There will be Etsy sellers, live music from frank deresti and the lake effect, an interactive art lab hosted by Thinking Rock for all ages to be involved and food! Everything you need to make a memorable evening.  Admission is free.  We are a part of of Culture Days!

One of my favorite parts of this event is that the first 30 shoppers to arrive get a SWAG bag filled with little gifts from each of our vendors!! 

These are the Etsy sellers that will be there...

This is a huge opportunity for Sault Ste. Marie and Northern Ontario as a whole.  We have some amazing artists and artisans and my hope is that the Etsy:Made in Canada market will help to showcase our talent and will occasion even more events like this in Northern Ontario!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Tweet Tweet Romper in Babiekins Magazine!!

Isn't she the cutest?! In Babiekins Magazine Print Issue 4, you will spot the Tweet Tweet Bird Romper from the Petites Créatures Collection by Fleur + Dot featuring my watercolor art on fabric!! I love flipping though this beautiful magazine.  Make sure to look and ask for it locally or you can purchase it through Babiekins online where they also publish other work and write a fun blog too!

You can find prints, cards and other party items like cupcake flags of this sweet little pink and yellow bird at my Etsy shop.  You can find this fabric on Spoonflower where it and others will soon be available for the public to purchase!

Thank you

This is the little bluejay feather our son found and promptly gave me outside of church this morning.  I'm thankful. 

I'm thankful not only for this feather but also for your continued support as I grow as an artist.  Even as I write my awesome husband is laying down the flooring in my new studio and I can't wait to start organizing and placing furniture.  I am super excited to paint more watercolours and make all sorts of treasures!   

I also wanted to take the time to let you know that as I want to continue to grow my skills into a little thriving business and because I want to continue to offer quality items I will be making some changes to my pricing in the next little bit.   I will continue to try to make up for it by having sales and I will announce them on my facebook or twitter.  So please make sure you are following me elsewhere too.

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday and I wish you the best as you begin your week!

♡ Renée Anne
