Unicorns in Space Giveaway! Open until 4/18/19

First of all, let me say hi! Enjoying all the spring weather? Me too! Of course, if you live in a normal state that is not Minnesota, maybe you experienced spring weather much earlier. Of course, I’m still a little hesitant to believe this is ‘real’ spring. Just because it looks and feels like spring in Minnesota, does not mean it is Spring, even when it should be spring. Last year, we had a blizzard on April 14th. Yeah. The bus couldn’t even make it through the snow, and I had to walk a mile and a half home. So, I’m cautiously optimistic that this is ‘real’ spring, and not ‘sucker’s spring’. I am squeezing in all the hiking and outdoors things I can, because as all Minnesotans know, it may not last. It is definitely possible to get snow in May.

That was a long intro just to talk about my giveaway! Now that it’s out of my system and we’ve caught up on all that is new and exciting in my life, have you heard about my giveaway? If you’re here on this blog, than yes, you probably have, because that’s probably how you found my blog. Congrats!

I will be giving away a galactic unicorn tote bag, notepad, and pencil case. They all match and are oh-so-cute.

New Collection Feature: Galactic Confections

Let me tell you a little about my collection, Galactic Confections! For starters, it is epitome of me. When I was planning the collection, I thought of what I would personally love, and you can see the answer here is I really, really love cats and unicorns.

Galaxy Unicorn Pencil Case

I have pencil cases, cosmetic bags, laptop covers, totes, notebooks, and stickers! The bags are made with the softest polyester canvas, and most of them are lined. Also, they have the best zippers because screw cheap zippers.

Teal Neko Laptop Case

I was inspired to make cute accessories after Marie Kondo’ing my apartment and realizing all my cute pencil cases brought me joy. Yes, I still have them and now my collection is growing. We all need joy in our everyday lives! Office life is even better with a discreet unicorn notebook.

All of my lovelies! I am seriously so proud.

I know you will love my whimsical accessories as much as I do. Thanks for reading!

XOXO,

Deidre

Quest for Cute launches Thursday 2/28 (and other updates :))

Hey Cuties!

Yes, my store finally launches next Thursday! More on that in a sec.

This week I had a friend visit from college, and I’ve turned yet another unsuspecting soul into a Terrace House fan

It may sound like I watch a lot of TV (that’s only half true :)) but have you seen Kitten Rescuers? It reminds me of the Great British Baking show with its peaceful tunes and feel-good theme. It reminds me a lot of my work as a foster cat mom, I’ve taken care of several kittens with ‘dodgy’ eyes. Their little squeaks make my heart melt every time!

This week I received the rest of my samples for my product launch next week Thursday! I am so ready for it, I have been working on it for the last three months! I hope you love it as much as I do, since it literally has everything I love: cats, unicorns, and cupcakes.

While I am waiting for next Thursday, I decided to do some drawing for fun and to get inspiration for my next collection. My next collection is still A SECRET, but I can tell you a little bit about my process 🙂

First, I make a list of everything I like (which includes everything you would hopefully like as well!) and I pick about 10-12 things that would go together in a theme.

I draw those 10-12 things, and start playing around with them together to create patterns. Not all of them work out, and I don’t use everything I draw. But it is hard to tell exactly what will work without putting all the pieces together! It’s like my personal puzzle. Once you find something that works, it is totally a light bulb moment. That’s what I’m looking for, and that’s how I know a pattern is a keeper.

See you next Thursday at 3PM CST!

XOXO,

Deidre
