New Embroidery LOVE!

Hello friends!

I recently hit a creative block. To be honest it was insanely hard to do anything creative + it was a struggle to start anything. I had this canvas wrapped in an embroidery hoop for months! I even drew what I wanted on it but never started because well, I didn't know how. It's quite intimidating to just start sometimes.

A few days ago I gave it a go and decided, " ok , I will just stitch the word ENERGY and that's enough. " Well, I did not know that I would have found so much joy, fun, and what I was missing in embroidery. It was a beauty. I couldn't stop. I kept stitching until it was done. Quite happy with the results of my first attempt at embroidery. I just needed a different way to be creative and to learn something new to jolt me out of my stagnant state.

Here's a little peek at the progress of the whole project!


I learned a few techniques in the process - such as a french knot, lazy daisies, and how to make a rose! Super simple + basic, I know, but so pretty regardless.

So lesson learned: whenever having a creative block - do something different - you never know, you might discover a new passion. ;)

Till next time, friends!

I love using it to write down recipe ideas and plenty of food inspired doodles. The harvest notebook is available now here!

Till next time!


Harvest Pattern Designs

I've been in the mood for vegetables! Vector vegetables. I'm starting a new collection of patterns. The first one will be following a harvest theme. Perhaps it's the autumn weather that has me in the mood for taking things back to their roots.


Kara Le Illustration , Harvest Collection

Here is a sneak peak on one of the patterns I have started. I've learned quite a bit in drawing in illustrator. Becoming quite drawn to using it whereas I have started out and always have been a photoshop gal. Am I switching? Haha pondering moments..

 First pattern of the harvest collection.

These patterns will be available as notebooks on my shop eventually! And perhaps... other goods! Stay tuned!

Doodles + Salad

Been an exciting month. I started doing monthly challenges to keep things fresh! Recently I attended a christening party for a special, adorable, little boy. It was a potluck style party and I made my *famous* kale salad! Haha Everyone seemed to love it - even to the point of fighting over the salad. Really funny >.<

During a chill Sunday morning I doodled the recipe into my Moleskine Passions recipe book:

Drawing this was super fun! The best part was finding time to make doodles and draw for myself! It keeps my drawing mind fresh. I've been keeping busy by making new earrings for the shop! That will be another blog post!

Here is the finished product ( kale salad ) :


 Seriously it's a bomb salad!

Seriously it's a bomb salad!

I didn't add any measurements since it's all to personal taste really. If you want it super spicy/salty/sour - that's completely up to you! Make it your own!

New Pinterest Board!

Hello! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday! I've been creating new graphics for my shop! I've been exploring abstract visuals, playing with patterns, watercolors, and all that fun stuff!

I also created a pin board just for new goodies available on the shop! Follow if you want to be kept up to date on all new patterns and illustrated products! :)

I find Pinterest really great for finding inspirations, ideas, and just fun in general. Hope you enjoyed my short post + have a wonderful day! :)

Sunday Craft Day

Sunday's are the perfect day. I love spending Sunday mornings & afternoons crafting, painting, drawing, and anything that allows me to create.

Today I made these cute little clay trinket dishes + incense holder!

Used acrylic paint to decorate my clay trinkets + incense holders!


I haven't made anything with my hands in a while! It reminded me how calming and peaceful it is to craft. A wonderful tactile experience! Reminded me of those coloring therapy books! I love how each piece is different and imperfect. It's what makes each piece so beautiful - the imperfections. Ahhh - excited to place them all over my place! They would make nice gifts too!
