th | design: eva juliet

I LOVE this artist, I really admire her work. "Everything you see here is made and designed by {Eva} in her little design studio in Quebec, a french province in Canada. Eva is an art director, graphic designer, illustrator, who is happiest with a sketch journal in one hand and a pen in the other. She thinks that hand-written letters are unique and loves to fill her mind with positive thoughts." I think it's so important that we keep our mind with good thoughts everyday and to always remember the things we are grateful for, even the smallest things in life. Check {her} out!

ps. Happy Veterans Day!
