My name is Anna Denise. I am a Dutch illustrator, freshly minted mommy, and avid keeper of journals. I also work for a little marketplace called Etsy.com. I ride my bike around London, where live with my husband, baby boy Jacob, and cat Miso.
I've started a YouTube channel to showcase my journals, share tutorials, and review art supplies. What would you like to see on this channel? Let me know!
I quietly launched a new line of customizable baby announcements, check 'em out!
I am not sure about you, but in my world the months between June and September are Wedding Central over here. Which means I've been busy and did a few commissions for wedding invites!
You guys know I love my stationery and I love sending people cards. Often, however, my cards or letters never make it to their intended recipient because I'm too busy (lazy) to go to the post office. So when Paperless Post approached me to try their services, I was intrigued. Here's my review!
You probably thought I was too busy partying and enjoying summer to draw or blog much. And you would be right if by 'partying' you mean 'sitting in a corner crying' and by 'enjoying summer' you mean 'living through a seemingly endless sh*t show'.
If the Universe is trying to tell me something, it's not being very subtle about it. Ya coulda just WhatsApped me, you know?
These illustrations seem to be doing well on Instagram, so I thought I'd repost here!
Jacob is generally an easy baby - smiley, social, not completely adverse to naps. But that all that changed - he was fussy, cried suddenly and louder than I'd heard him do before, needed constant attention, resisted naps. "Teething," said the health visitor. "A cold," said our GP when we rang him. "Just give him some paracetamol to bring the fever down". I canceled my birthday plans and we spent a quiet weekend at home, but on Monday he still wasn't well, and what's worse, I discovered a lump in his ear canal.
