Kitty Teabag Wrapper

Kitty Teabag Wrapper | DESIGN IS YAY!

Anyone who knows me in real life knows how much I love cats and stuff with cute kitties on them. My favourite feline character is Pusheen! So when I realised that I have never created a cat-related printable, I knew I had to do something about it.

If you’re a cat lover like me, you can be sure that this Kitty Teabag Wrapper will be first of the many cat-related printables that I’m going to share. I hope you like them.

JUNE 2016 Design is Yay Calendar Freebies - Desktop, iPad, iPhone & Planners | DESIGN IS YAY!

This month’s featured illustrator is… *drumroll*… myself! :D

It was caused by myself being disorganised, but here’s a valid excuse: I have a newborn baby. So suddenly I realised it was the end of May, I panicked and picked up a pencil and start drawing what’s on my mind. And of course a corgi came up!

Tuxedo Cup Cosies | Father's Day Printable | DESIGN IS YAY!

It’s surely is getting cold here! Brrr…

With these Tuxedo cup cosies that I’ve created, your cup will look dapper and… well, cosy. They’re also perfect for the upcoming Father’s Day! Pick from the three styles I’ve designed, the sweet baby blue and pink, preppy navy and yellow, or classic grey with red bow tie. I also include a few other bow tie colours, so that you can mix and match them as you like!



Creative Blogger with a Baby : The First month

Creative blogger with a baby - the first month | DESIGN IS YAY!

On the 1st of April 2016, at 8.59 in the evening, I gave birth to my baby boy, Jethro. He arrived 6 days early, but it was a very quick (and very very painful) labour.

My first two weeks with Jethro was confusing, blurry and overwhelming. It was the longest 2 weeks of my life. Everything that I learn about taking care of a newborn was shocking, I did not know it was going to be that difficult, especially in the feeding department. Everything was a mess, and I could not imagine we (me, my husband and Jethro) will made it through those early weeks.
