Josh & Kate
Kate & Josh
My husband and I are working together on a little side project. We're both artists and have been wanting to do a project together for a long time. Josh & Kate is the way we're going to accomplish that. It's just in it's beginning stages. Josh has illustrated two silk screen prints. We have chickadees that make a nest every year on our back stoop and gold finches are frequent guests at our bird feeder in our backyard. We and the kids enjoy watching them every year and that was the inspiration for these two prints. The collection of prints will expand and we're hoping to add other items as well. You'll also find a PDF pattern of a certain advent calendar and ornaments pop up in the shop come the end of this month or early October (that's the goal!). My awesome husband and collaborator is going to help me out with designing an awesome pattern for you guys. He's amazing and I'm super excited that he's going to be helping me out! You can read more about Josh & Kate here. You can also find us on Facebook. Be sure to click the "like" button if you want to hear our updates. Spread the word and if you like what you see purchase a print for you or as a gift. It will help fund future collaborations...and I don't mean kids, we're finished with four :). We have both little birds hanging on our living room wall. The prints are beautiful and fit perfectly in these IKEA frames (just in case you happen to decide you need a bird print for your wall and needed advice on how to frame it).
Enjoy what is left of your weekend and have a beautiful week!
With four small kids life feels crazy sometimes. Sewing gives me a creative outlet and keeps me sane...along with my husband and the grace of God. Even in the midst of the crazy there is a lot of joy, which I hope spills over into my work and is shared with those who receive it.
