It hardly seems possible that my etsy shop and business is celebrating it's 10th year. I've done quite a bit of reflecting this past week. I dug through my archives here on the blog, and it really brought up the emotions. 10 years worth of archives (if you're reading from my shop's blog section jump here to see the original blog) really show just how much my business has evolved over the years. From the year 2008, where blogs were much more personal and I updated on a very consistent basis, to my more recent years where my blog had... Continue reading

You asked for it, and I listened! For a very small window of time I'm re-releasing a few designs from the Haven Fall Collection. Continue reading

Last month, I asked my VIP members to vote on which designs they would like to see in the Fall 2017 collection. After going over those votes it was clear that I needed to make part of the Haven Collection available for purchase. But because my new Winter Collection launch date is nearing (mid October!) I have to run this Fall collection through a much smaller window of time. As a result it will be pulled much quicker than any previous Collections I've released. Art from the 2016 Haven Collection in Bre Doucette's living room To work all of this... Continue reading

Somebody pinch me. We are finally creating a separate studio space for VOL.25. It's been a looong time coming. Next January will be VOL.25's 10 year Anniversary. We will be celebrating a decade of sending canvas art all over the country. How awesome is that!? VOL.25 been a wonderful dream come true, but if you've ever worked from home you understand the importance of being able to actually feel like your home and work space are not one in the same. I've powered through over the years and really made the absolute best of what we've had. Our last house... Continue reading

It is so hard to do so. I ignored the signals for so long that eventually they had to literally knock me off my feet before I'd pay attention. Sometimes we need to make time for ourselves, so we can be fully available for others.

Thank you Liz! :)

This post is a little personal, but I've really taken comfort from others sharing real life struggles, and I'm hoping sharing my story can help someone else. This year has brought so many struggles and challenges. I've always heard we experience the most growth through the hard times. Gee- is that ever true! I honestly feel like I had fallen pretty low, my health took a turn for the worse and it has taken many many months of prayer, meditation, and self care to finally be getting back to a place of wellness. It all started last Fall, I see... Continue reading

Tomorrow will mark a week since the Botanic Collection went live. I haven't been as thorough about keeping the blog updated, so please make sure you jump on as a VIP to receive the most current news. VIP's received the first peek at the new Collection. You can now see the entire collection here: The Botanic Collection This was a fun collection to put out there and I thoroughly enjoyed shopping for props months in advance. :) Now that this Collection has been introduced to the world, I'm at the dreaming stage for my next collection. I can't decide if... Continue reading

This is going to be quick, because I'm currently packaging my way out of a beautiful mountain of orders! :) The Black Friday / Cyber Monday sale is live in the shop.

I think we can all agree that this blog has been very neglected over the past couple of months. :) If you've jumped on board as a VIP (do so here) then you've still been getting weekly updates from me via your inbox. I know that over the years this blog has been my main platform for keeping you updated. These days all my focus is going to that VIP list. I'm so sorry about that. Apparently I haven't even posted about the launch of the new Winter Collection!? Craazy talk. I'll try to do better I promise. There was... Continue reading

The Haven Collection is being pulled tonight. I sent out a heads up to the VIP list a couple of hours ago. If you had a favorite piece from this Collection, please grab it while you can. I did move 4 of the best selling designs to the heirloom collection, but unfortunately I couldn't choose them all! I'm set to launch 1 more collection this year, and I just won't have the space to offer that many designs without a few of them having to move into limited edition status. These are the 6 designs that have proudly claimed that... Continue reading

Brooke posted her Fall Home Tour, and I couldn't be prouder to have the Feather Patterns vol.5 represented within that beautiful tour. :) I love how Brooke always keeps things simple, but powerful. Bringing nature in and incorporating it throughout her house, seems to be her jam. She does it so well. :) Link jump on over to read her full post and see more pictures here. I am SOO happy it's Friday. My brother and his family are visiting, I've finished orders for the day and am just about ready to head down and meet my husband for Coffee!... Continue reading

Scarlet, Hi! Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, the Poppy Study was a limited edition so it was pulled from the shop back in June. I have had quite a few people asking for me to bring it back. There is a chance I might change it up just a bit and re-release it in a future collection. Are you signed up on the VIP list? If so, you'll be the first to hear or vote on it coming back! :)

Today is the day! The Haven Collection is LIVE. Such an exciting day. I've had some really positive feedback, and I'm soo thankful for each and every one of you that has supported me through this journey. This is my second Collection of the year, and was quite possibly the hardest for me to complete. Next year I may just do two collections. Working on this for the past 3 months through Summer vacation, and the busyness of Summer period was a bit of a challenge. But again, the support I received through e-mails, instagram comments etc. really helped me... Continue reading

There's a 48 hour flash sale going on in the Vol.25 shop. Although, because it is taking me awhile to get this posted on instagram, facebook, etc. etc. There is less than 48 hours left. <--- That's honesty riiight there ;) Okay, so the details! Each and every canvas wall hanging and print is marked down by 15%. But, here's the best part- if you join the rest of the VIP members and succumb to my exclusive discounts and sneak peeks... you can use an instant 20% off coupon code to stack on top of the already reduced pricing.

The Reverie Collection is going out with a bang! I sent out a heads up to the VIP list and it is clear that this was a well loved collection! I know many of you had wanted to grab a piece from this line. I did move 4 of the best selling designs to the heirloom collection, but unfortunately I couldn't choose them all! I'm set to launch 2 more collections this year, and I just won't have the space to offer that many designs without a few of them having to move up into limited edition status. These are...

Wow, so much news to share with you! First, I re-branded and launched my own stand alone website. (Same link new redirect) I have finally outgrown Etsy and it feels amazing to have a little slice of the internet devoted to Vol25. It's been something I have wanted to do for a couple of years, and I finally felt the strong push to just make it happen. I'm so happy with how the website turned out. I feel I can finally personalize the shop to reflect my branding. I'm also utilizing my newsletters again. Although, I think I messed... Continue reading

After hearing the disheartening news about the direction instagram is planning to move in, I decided it was time to focus on something positive... and this quote was fitting. It isn't Monday but I needed it. "Choose to be optimistic. It feels better." I've already posted twice to instagram this morning ranting about how disappointing this change is going to be for small businesses trying to gain a foothold within the instagram platform. But, in another light. I can't help but wonder if this change is going to be the slow death of instagram... and the re-birth to the blogging... Continue reading

"Rule your mind, or it will rule you." I completely missed the fact that yesterday was Monday... so here is Monday's quote a day late. :) I've been making some really good progress on the new collection and should have a launch date very very shortly. It has been SO hard to not share too much information. I'm just really excited to show you what I've been working on. Sneak peeks SOON! Continue reading

"Big things often have small beginnings." I have found this to be true in SO many different areas of my life. How was your weekend? Jaydon got in quite a bit of extra hours Friday and Saturday, he took a couple of really late night driving trips. We're working Dave Ramsey's plan, so the extra hours are super appreciated. In all honesty we've been following quite a few of his suggestions for awhile, but somewhat half heart-edly. This year we are going all in. Like gazelle intense. So, extra hours are being put in... We both want a little more... Continue reading

Good morning! How are you today? It's 6:01 AM and I've already had 2 cups of coffee... so I'm doing pretty great! ;) We received more snow last night, so Jaydon had to wake up early (at 4 am) to get to the school early enough to remove snow before the kids start showing up. I always wake up with him, and we try to carve out at least 5-10 minutes to sit with our coffee and visit. I always look forward to that time with him... and it is totally worth waking up early for. I always heat up... Continue reading
