Helen Dardik

I get a little bored talking about myself sometimes. I’m really not that interesting! But Helen Dardik is!

Ok, so I am just going to blurt this out. I LOVE Helen Dardik! Her illustrations are fun, colourful and always manage to put a smile on my face. I recently brought a print from Helen’s Etsy store. Can you believe she took the time to draw the most delightful illustration with black sharpie all over the envelope! I mean, this artist is one busy lady bit still managed to take the time out to make a boring envelope look pretty. And yes, I will be treasuring that envelope for ever!

Helen is represented by Lilla Rogers and is featured in Blogs and magazines everywhere, most recently the latest copy of Flow where her delightful illustrations are scattered throughout the magazine in the form of stickers and full page prints.

Helen Dardik was born in Russia, spent several years in Siberia and trained at the ORT School of Art and Design in Israel. She now resides in Canada where she has started her own independent design and illustration firm.

You can find Helen’s Etsy store here. Make sure you check our her website and blog too. I’m sure you will be absolutely delighted by her illustrations.

Etsy Finds December 2013

I am an Etsy addict! I am also a shopaholic and have an obsession with home decorating. As you can imagine, my husband groans every time he spots me browsing through Etsy.

Here is a list of my latest exciting Etsy finds. I am especially excited about discovering a new favourite artist – Helen Dardik. Her bold, colourful prints just drew me in as soon as I spotted them. I can’t wait until I frame and display one of her amazing pieces on my wall.

Another fantastic find was the Cat Softie from Jane Foster. Her store has a variety of must have items – cushions, screen prints and handmade toys. Make sure you drop in and check our her beautiful store on Etsy.

I have a few animal face masks hanging on the wall in my daughter’s room but I have never seen masks as beautiful asĀ NinnApouladaki’s. I will definitely be purchasing a few of her amazing masks in the New Year.

If you see an item you would like to purchase or find out more about the crafter, please click on the image to be taken to the sellers store.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas X

A White Christmas – Wonderful Etsy Finds for that Perfect Christmas Gift

White Christmas Gifts

White is the colour of purity and innocence, snow and milk, perfection and a clean slate. My house is a colourful place full of lively palettes and strong shades. I do love colour BUT there is nothing like a pure white porcelain deer sitting on your bedside table, a white bud vase holding a red rose or a white plate with a striking black fox illustration hanging on the kitchen wall.

Here is a list of beautiful white Etsy finds. Some of these items I have had in my favourites list for a while and a few of them I have even purchased and are now a favourite piece in my house.

If you see an item you would like to purchase or find out more about the crafter, please click on the image to be taken to the sellers store. Enjoy

Neon Crush

I’m so glad Neon has made a comeback! It’s definitely not for everyone but I find myself drawn to those striking, hypnotic shades. I’m super jealous of people that manage to pull off neon, whether it be in their homes or the clothes they are wearing.

I have started introducing Neon into my daughters room by way of cushions and a few prints. I find teaming Neon with naturally textured and understated fabrics looks fantastic. My number one tip would be this – a little Neon goes a long way! Try to stick to one shade and don’t overdo it, for the sake of your eyes!

Here are some of my favourite Neon finds on Etsy I thought I would share with you. If you would like to view or purchase any of the items listed below, please click on the image to be taken to the sellers store. Enjoy.
