Hello! My name is Lucas and I'm Brazilian. Since I arrived in Australia a lot of beautiful things happened in my life, so on the day I turned 30 I decided to celebrate in a special way, being grateful to the people of Sydney. :)
Thank you so much to all my friends who helped make this happen, without you it would not have been possible. And thank you to everyone who lives in Australia, making this country such a wonderful place.
A big hug, Lucas.

Over the last few weeks I have been reading so many wonderful new blogs and books and they all have a common theme... the power of positive thinking. I'm making a conscious effort to think only good, positive thoughts and to ignore all the negativity that so often fills our minds.
My contribution to this 'good vibe flow' is to create positive, inspiring prints. They are all A4, hi res jpgs so feel free to use them on your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. or print off a copy and use it in your home or office as a little reminder that positivity brings positivity.

I was interviewed a while ago for a FAB new 'mums in business' directory, Clever Mamma.
Check it out here...
I love the concept of connecting business mums and the branding and site design is gorgeous! Lots of great stories and tips from other creative mammas!
I just love when the sun rises early to blue skys and you wake before the alarm... and 2 year olds! Especially on a Monday! I feel so much better kick starting my week with a little yoga, a quiet coffee and read at the paper before the house wakes.

We have recently moved Gabriel into the front bedroom (his toys were taking over and there just wasn't enough space in the little bedroom!) and without fail, at least once a week, the postman will come and ring the door bell just as G has gone to sleep!
So hopefully this little sign will let him have a more peaceful afternoon nap.
The sign is a printable PDF to allow you to print a copy at home and put it in a photo frame to hang on the front door. The file also contains a version that says 'Please use the back door' for when you are expecting visitors.
You can purchase now from Buttercup Ink : The Paper Shop and also from the Buttercup Ink Etsy shop.

I'm having a bit of a tidy up in the studio this afternoon and now that my desk is lovely and organised, I just can seem to get to work. So I'm spending the next hour of so catching up on some blog reading and general inspiration (hours can be easily lost on Pinterest!)
I've found that recently I'm gravitating back to the 'baby blogs' and baby name websites. It only leaves me feeling more confused though! During this pregnancy, we've not really spoken about names as much as we did first time round. Although, we knew that Gabriel was going to be Gabriel even before we were pregnant - but I just love playing the name game!
We've got a few names picked out that we like for both a boy and girl (no, we're resisting temptation and not finding out!) but I would LOVE if any of you have some suggestions!
This logo was created with a kids clothing line or clothing boutique in mind but can be customised (colour, business name and tag line) for any creative business!

The idea behind this project is that when starting out in business (especially for mums) there often isn't a lot of cash available for branding. I have created a collection of customisable, ready-to-buy logo suits that allow new businesses to have a creative and professional image from the very beginning without having to spend $$$.
Accompanying items such as business cards, letterhead, gift certificates, blog banners, etc. are also available on request.
As a little special offer, I'm including a free Facebook skyscraper profile image for each logo suite purchased to give people a little kick start and get their business online - even if they aren't at the website stage just yet.
