|Start of 2011 - at the zoo with Dane (and Isla, in tow)|
Our little studio has grown more than we could have expected! Thanks to all those holidays card orders, Little Bird did more business in Nov-Dec 2011 than the whole of 2010! A big thank you to everyone who made this year such a success!
In 2011 I was also named KiraKira's Art Director! It's been incredible to see this brand grow! I'm so honored to be a part of such a fabulous team, now based out of New York. Thanks Suzanne for appreciating my design aesthetic and making this bi-continental relationship work!

Work is fantastic, but my best moment of 2011 was welcoming my baby girl into the world. Isla is such a joy and perfect addition to our little family.
What new year would be complete without a few resolutions?! So here are mine. I hope you enjoy and have a happy new year!
Resolution #1: Blog better!
Admittedly, I am quite possibly the worst "blogger" alive. Blog goal: weekly updates on Little Bird and all other design endeavors, inspirations and interesting happenings around the nest.
Resolution #2: Be more organized.
This is a lifelong battle and one that I hope to conquer this year! My sister insists that the notion is fundamentally in opposition to my personality and creative process. I choose to be optimistic that I can still create in an organized space (at least when Dane isn't looking up dino cartoons in my office!). Any suggestions will be well received. Basically, I want Martha Stewart to invade my house and give everything a label and a home. That's all! Thanks to Real Simple (realsimple.com), I feel I am gleaning invaluable information to help achieve my life's goal: knowing exactly where my keys, phone, purse, ect. are at all times:)
Resolution #3: Listen.
To my kids, my husband, my mom, myself. It seems I spend so much time rushing and directing and shuttling that I sometimes forget to just slow down and listen to the one's I love. My newly turned 4 year old has the funniest, sweetest, most outrageous things to say, when I'm not asking him to be quiet so I can think! And although my baby girl isn't old enough to speak, her coos and laughs are something I want to remember always. So listen. You'll be glad you did. I already am:)
Until next time (which should be NEXT WEEK), thanks for stopping by...
