Hey everyone! I've been taking some much needed time off to rejuvenate as this has just been a crazy year. Besides a very demanding day job, trying to juggle this blog along with running Joue Design, my online shop Handsome & The Duck, painting more watercolor originals - a new collection to be unveiled on my shop, and starting KitsKnits - a line of hand-knitted and crocheted scarves and cowls (my yours truly) - being a doting partner to my boyfriend and MOST IMPORTANTLY, spending enough time being the best mom I can be to my two beautiful boys, I've barely had time to breathe. I feel like I'm constantly running at 300 percent every day. Not complaining - I love creating and designing things - that's what makes me, well.. me. But these past few weeks I have had to take a break and I promise I'll post pictures from my recent trip to the Mayan Riviera with my family plus more content than ever in 2016. 

2016 will be an amazing year - I have so much to share with you all. My designs, my creations - all on my shop. Here's wishing you a wonderful holiday season and all the best for the new year!
