It's Cherry Month! YAAASSS! I frackin' love cherries. I'm still annoyed they are super expensive, but I understand why...because nothing will keep me from buying them. So for some colorFUN in the office, let's add a cherry pattern to your tech!
Just click on the size you need, save to your device, and set as wallpaper! Now your tech is, like, really pretty.
Quite an exciting week behind the blog! I completed my to-do list (thank you, deadlines) and can now happily focus on Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day. Our littlest is showing major signs of walking! He actually took his first steps on Wednesday of last week, and it is getting pretty serious. The whole household is anticipating some major trouble with this little rascal. Plus, this give me an excuse to go shoe shopping! For him, of course. ;)
So let's kick this weekend off right, shall we? Fun link for all!

Calling all Disney dweebs: We have started our podcast!
Have an AWESOME weekend, peeps!
Cozy Reverie has always been an evolving brand, but one thing that has kept growing more and more every year is my work with the wonderful manufacturer, Spoonflower. For those unfamiliar, Spoonflower helps artists create fabric, gift wrap, and wallpaper from their artwork. I have had so many wonderful collaborations in the past three years, and many of them wouldn't have happened if it weren’t for Spoonflower.
This is why I am excited to announce that they have just released a brand new fabric: Cotton Spandex Jersey! It is a soft and stretchy fabric made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex. Spoonflower uses Ultra-Color technology which ensures vibrant color - THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! Since this is a basic stretch cotton, I can totally see myself using it for dresses, pajamas, and baby clothes. Little Lou gets to model again!
Here are a few more details on the fabric, as noted on the website:
Check out how it moves in the video below!
Beginning today, Thursday, January 21st, Spoonflower will be having a Free Swatch Day featuring the newest fabric, Cotton Spandex Jersey, starting at 7:00 AM Pacific Time and ending on January 22nd at 7:00 AM PST. That's 24 hours of free swatches, peeps!
Heads up! Just in case you haven't noticed in every single retail store, Valentine's Day is less than one month away. You've got a few weeks to get your stuff together. Consider this a public service announcement. YOU HAVE BEEN ALERTED!
It is also the time of year when I announce the 2016 Valentines in the Cozy Reverie shop. If you've been following on Instagram, you have already seen quite a few of the designs. To be quite honest, I thought I was posting a little too early but it looks like you all have already been shopping! I'm impressed - I'm a total procrastinator (I know, "hypocrite", right? Please forgive me).
Scroll down to see a few of my favorites in the shop this year. And yes, most of them are inspired by my 3-year marriage LOL. The entire collection can be viewed here. Happy shopping for love, peeps!
P.S. - If you need an amazing idea for your gal this year, I highly recommend Rocksbox! This monthly subscription will send three pieces of jewelry, curated especially for the recipient. It is basically the Netflix of accessories. I have been a member for five months and absolutely love it. Try out a month for free by using the code COZYREVERIEXOXO at check out!
I have always wanted to live sketch during awards shows because I frackin' love the red carpet. If there is any award show I love the most (aside from the MTV Music Awards in the 2000s), it is the Golden Globes. Everybody seems as they are having the best time! Clearly, it's the booze.
Speaking of "booze", for those following me on Instagram during the live award show you may have noticed a flood of posts. Yep, I drank three glasses of Riesling and happily sketched live during the broadcast! I’m surprised I got that many out that weren’t completely disastrous. Check them out below!
I am in full party-planning mode for the next two weeks. The Brodster is turning 8!
We are keeping in small and "simple" with a pizza party. However, I put "simple" in quotes because, let's be honest, kids parties are never easy. Thankfully, I'm going to have some help with the party which is probably why I keep adding fun things to the to-do list...like these pizza prop glasses!
Inspired by Studio DIY's lemon shades, I designed a pizza pattern for the party. These can work great for photo booths or just good old fashioned goofball fun. Scroll below to get your free download, cut out the pizzas, and tape to an old pair of sunglasses. I used painters tape to protect the lens.
Have fun pizza lovers! And be sure to use the hashtag #CozyReverieStyle so we can see your projects!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
