Let’s start this week with some Flick Favorites, shall we? But first tell me, how was your weekend? What did you do? Whatever it is, I hope it was lovely. I didn’t get much time to rest, I had so many projects to work on and still couldn’t get everything done! I think I agreed to take on too many projects and just can’t keep up. Slowly but surely is the way to go. And I will get to rest in a couple of weeks when all this chaos has calmed down. But in the meantime I will remain positive, and know that I shouldn’t overload myself and to be realistic in the future. ha!

What do you think of this collection of images? I love the soft, subtle palette with hints of color here and there. It’s very calming and that’s exactly what I need right now. It highlights the simple pleasures in life and how beautiful and delicate they can be. Sometimes when life preoccupies us and we are so busy, we forget about them. And I feel that it’s important to take a deep breath and remember the sweet, simple things.

Hello friends! How are you today? I have such a sweet Etsy finds for you coming from four lovely sellers. Ready to pay a little visit to each one?
Alyssa Zygmunt is a fashion designer living in Brooklyn. She loves the endless creative possibilities in recreating abandoned objects and pieces. And they are such beauties, from her adorable little porcelain animals to beautiful charmed necklaces. Be sure to hop on over to her new blog and have a look around.
Mandy Lynne is one talented lady! You can see for yourself if you visit her website. There is something so beautiful and innocent about her photography. Skippy designs demonstrates that, her passion for creating timeless imagery. Mandy’s work is “simply an expression of my heart, inspired by my children and simple life experiences.”
Indo Bay creates modern hand-printed textiles. The organic shapes, natural prints, textures and colors are so warm and welcoming. And with a playful and loving attitude, these charming creations would brighten up any home!
Here comes a local reference! Sweetbeets in Ontario designs letterpress cards and prints using a vintage printing press. Most of the work is targeted for children, Sweetbeets uses beautiful warm tones that capture the magic of childhood in creative ways. Visit Lisa’s blog for Sweetbeets updates and handmade inspiration for children!

Let’s hop on over to visit the talented Tabitha Emma from Sydney, Australia. Tabitha is a young emerging designer who does it all! You can visit her website for a wide range of her lovely work, she encourages you to “have a sit down, grab a hot cup of coffee and take a browse through my work.”
Her design work covers print, video, web, textiles, photography and illustration! And she’s not just a jack of all trades, because she actually masters all those areas. I will mainly be covering Tabitha’s wonderful illustrations and some playful hand crafted textiles.
Trained at the Whitehouse Institue of Design, she also recently graduated from the Enmore Design Center, Tafe with a diploma in Graphic Design and Communication. I love her natural style of illustration, it feels so organic and pure. Through the soft colors she uses, to the shapes, I love how everything looks freehand, it’s hard to find these days, and I appreciate the human touch. And something about little imperfections, rather than perfect vectors. My personal favorites from her shop are the girl with the bunny “Wild Child” (notice the detail in her hair, amazing isn’t it!?) and “Caged Bird”. How about you? What stands out to you the most?
Luckily for us, she sells her textile goods and prints at her shop. I encourage you to visit for some lovely prints and textiles. You can also check out her wonderful blog for more inspiration from Tabitha.
