A little girl called Ava Esme

Hey there! First of all i'd like to say sorry for the blog silence, I had actually started this post almost a month ago but life things got in the way - happy life things though. It's been a bit hectic hereabouts because Michael and I welcomed our little girl Ava Esme! She was born on the 2nd, early in the morning and since then we've been getting to know her little grunts and sleepy smiles and trying to decipher her different cries. It's been a tiring past few weeks but we've had the most wonderful support from both our families which we're both very grateful for. 

So yep that's what caused the temporary blog freeze and I was almost done writing that last one before, go figure! The post explained what prompted us to organise the poster giveaway we had last month - which was that we were on such a high from being blogged on several awesome blogs and say a massive thank you for those lovely write ups.

Since starting our embroidered graphics we've often worried that maybe what we were doing was a little kitsch or a bit sickly cute to be taken seriously. So being featured on design and art blogs that we greatly admire and follow has been a wonderful surprise (we may also have indulged in a few jumping geeky high fives). Thank you Juxtapoz, Fox is Black, It's Nice That, Australian INfront and Oh Joy!

PS Ava turned one month today. Time goes by so quickly!
