handmade holiday: coco draws
Caroline's simple, cute drawings always kept me coming back to her blog. Plus, I love her use of color and her darling handwriting. She documents the most desirable pretty things and then I want them all. She was just featured on Bagaholic Boy's blog and I can't wait to see where she is next!
What inspires you and your work?
Everything in the world around me inspires me. I get inspiration from winter walks, beautiful photos, blogs/magazines, and from the day to day in everyday life!
I've always been a doodler- especially during those long lectures at college. But one day, this past year, I picked up a pen and started to draw more seriously and I haven't stopped since! I love being able to make my own interpretation of an object. And there's something so satisfying about using actual physical tools for drawing.
What does your workspace look like?
I like to have as little on my desk as possible so that there's less distractions. And the bigger the desk, the better! I like working on a blank canvas and it's no less different with my workspace. I also have a few art prints and photos up for inspiration and motivation for those days that I need it! And I always have a big cup of tea nearby.
What is your favorite thing?
Can it be more than one thing? Because I absolutely love my mugs! Anywhere I go, I always check out the mugs and cups first. And I never buy a complete set of them because I like having a collection of quirky, mismatched mugs. :)
What are you looking forward to most about this holiday season?
Unplugging (from the web) and being with my loved ones.
Imagine you're throwing a holiday party. What would it look like and who would you invite?
This year I'm really feeling the Winter White color scheme so I'd probably run with that. I would put up twinkle lights everywhere and in unexpected places because they're so magical and bright. And I would invite a few of my closest friends to keep the conversation intimate and the atmosphere cozy.
I'm so happy that I was able to feature these lovely artists this week right before the holidays! Big thanks to Andrea, Suzy & Caroline for their appearances. I am so inspired by their lovely hearts.
Cheers to all!
